I'm a 26-year-old proud South African male. I reside in Cape Town, which to me is the best city in the world.

I was born in Johannesburg on the 10th of December 1978 to parents Raymond Searra and Cheryl-Ann Davies. My parents separated when I was a year old and I was adopted my stepfather, Gerald Davies.

I have a wonderful brother from my father Raymond and wonderful step mom Helen Searra. My brother Yorke is 14 years old and my gorgeous sister, Imogen, is 10 years old.

I attended my first year of school in Durban and it would be a while before returning to the secular schooling system. The reason for this statement is that my parents were called to be missionaries and I was taken along.

We spent five years going into the darkest and most problem-ridden places, at that time, in Africa - such as Zambia, Mozambique, Zaire and Malawi. Our mission was not only to preach the Gospel, but also to help try feed and clothe the people as much as we could.

CFAN (Christ For All Nations) was the group that we were with. I was home-schooled by my mother during this period with a schooling system called A.C.E (Accelerated Christian Education). I then started training as a broker whilst also doing sales and marketing training for Prepaid Online.

On returning back to South Africa we made home in Northern Natal at a place called New Castle, where I attended my first secular school. It was at this point that my parents realised my potential in not only sports but drama as well.

We only spent a short period there and my parents thought it was time to move on as they were called to a different ministry - this was in Kimberley and there we settled.

It was at Kimberley Boys High that I excelled in Rugby, Cricket, Athletics and Drama. In Standard 8 and 9 I made first team for Rugby and Cricket whilst being the lead for our school's annual drama, which was presented to the whole town.

It was during this time that I received my colours for drama and rugby. At this time I left Kimberley by myself to start getting to know my father and his family in Johannesburg.

My father was a big influence on my career choice, which ended up being sales and marketing. I jumped in the deep end and got involved in corporate selling.

At the age of 24 I got involved with two partners and we opened up a modelling agency, Sky Models, which still does well today. I moved on from Sky Models to expand my horizons in the corporate sector. I then started training as a broker whilst also doing sales and marketing training for Prepaid Online.

I recently got involved in a company called Corporate Event Staging and I am currently heading up their sales and marketing division.

I am also exceptionally passionate about charity, which I help support with the help of Andersons Bakery. The charity I am currently supporting is Cravenby Community Care Centre in Cape Town, which is a NGO and is run by a lovely lady called Mrs. Naidoo.

Mrs Naidoo has converted her property into an orphanage for the children and depends solely on miracles and the kindness of people for aid. Even the basic needs are luxuries for these children and I challenge everyone - from individuals to the Private and Corporate sectors - to get involved in a charity or to contact me about mine.

Acting and Presenting


I am engaged to Sindy Blackman who is a wonderful and strong woman. She not only loves me but also cherishes my dreams and goals. She allowed me to compete in The Apprentice even though it coincided with our wedding date. We subsequently had to delay the ceremony, but still plan to marry later this year.

I have lots of great friends and a lovely family that supports and guides me. I have two dogs: my Staffie, Sky and a Jack Russell, Crest - which are my boys. The biggest lesson they've taught me in life is how to be patient, which is not a strong point of mine.

I have a very strong spiritual bond with my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and look to Him for support and guidance in this crazy world of ours.

My Mission Statement:

If opportunity does not knock, go out and build a door.
