Lerato Sengadi is a South African events co-ordinator best known as a contestant on the second season of the reality competition Big Brother Africa, in 2007. She was the 5th person evicted from the house (Day 56), garnering 8 of the 13 votes.

She was up against Bertha on eviction night. Countries that voted to evict Bertha were Ghana, South Africa, Zambia, Kenya and Namibia. Countries that wanted Lerato out were Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Angola, Malawi and the rest of Africa.

Big Brother Africa 2 Bio

The advertising college graduate reveals that she's full of surprises and says, "I even surprise myself so you never know what you gonna get." Having been selected as a housemate, Lerato says she wants to see "how far I can push myself."

A collector of Converse sneakers, with a desire to visit Jamaica and the Caribbean, Lerato says if she wins the big prize on Big Brother Africa 2, she'll buy her mom a new car, donate some to charity, invest some and go on a vacation.

Meanwhile she credits her mom for the best advice she's ever been given which was simply, "you can't make everyone happy, so start with making yourself happy and the rest will fall into place."

Big Brother All Stars Bio

Johannesburg resident Lerato, who made her first appearance on Big Brother Africa in season 2, describes herself as a fierce and feisty party starter.

The 26-year-old, who labels her clothing style as Urban Afropolitan, says her favourite quote is from the movie Forest Gump: "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you gonna get."

In the new season of Big Brother Lerato says that her strategy in the house will be:
"To choose my battles wisely and not let emotions get the best of me (although that's almost impossible)."

Speaking about her expectations of her Big Brother experience, she reveals that she would like it to be life-changing, fun, scary, awesome and enlightening.

Confirming that she is sometimes temperamental and that's her bad habit, Lerato's message to viewers is simple: "What you see is what you get. What you'll be seeing is me carrying on with my day-to-day activities but you'll have the front row seat to it all."

Asked why she wanted to return to Big Brother Africa, she says: "Because I have a second chance at playing an interesting game."

She encourages audiences to watch her on Big Brother because: "I'm an unpredictable fire-cracker! You never know what you gonna get."
