Bio

Soli Philander is a South African actor, director, comedian, playwright and columnist best known for hosting the first season of the e.tv reality show Let's Fix It, appearing in 26 episodes from February to August 2005.

Philander left the show acrimoniously in December 2005 after a dispute with e.tv over what he called "corporate scheming" and "unethical behaviour" from the channel, after they introduced a major retail chain as sponsor of the show.

Philander claimed it turned the show into an infomercial and said he wasn't prepared to compromise his integrity by continuing as host of the show.

He is also known for hosting the Afrikaans musical game show Liriekeraai (Guess The Lyrics) on the Dstv channel kykNET.

In 2008 he can be seen as the host of the reality game show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?

Philander played minor roles in the 1992 feature film The Road To Mecca and in the 2001 made-for-TV movie Diamond Hunters.

He has performed in all the major theatre centres in South Africa and has worked in the UK, USA, Sweden, Swaziland and Namibia.

He has also appeared as a master-of-ceremonies, motivational speaker and celebrity speaker at several prestigious events.
