Season 8

Twenty Castaways from across South Africa have been brought together for the chance to compete to be the 'Sole Survivor' on South African soil for the first time in the series' history.

Having spent the better part of a year in isolation under COVID-19 related lockdowns already, the Castaways were transported far from their homes and into true isolation on the Eastern Cape's beautiful Wild Coast, where they attempted to Outwit, Outplay and Outlast each other over 39 days for R1-million and the title.

Survivor South Africa: Immunity Island was filmed on the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape.

Filmed in partnership with the Eastern Cape Development Corporation (ECDC), the Season 8 is produced by Afrokaans and hosted by Nico Panagio.

The Survivor format is represented internationally by Banijay Rights.

Age: 33
Occupation: Corporate Lawyer
From: Johannesburg

Quote:

"I was at a braai and the advertisement for Survivor came on TV and with my red wine-stained lips and teeth I proclaimed, 'I can do that!'. I then proceeded to film my messy audition video, which somehow got me selected!"

Kiran Naidoo

Kiran Naidoo

Age: 29
Occupation: Strategy Consultant
From: Johannesburg

Quote:

"Playing 'for fun' is quite literally the most annoying concept in the world. I am exceptionally curious about the world around me and the motivations behind why people do what they do. Lastly, I'm super sarcastic and quick-witted, if you don't pick it up you may think I'm mean... shame".

Noleen "Pinty" Nkanjeni

Age: 30
Occupation: Freelancer
From: Cape Town

Quote:

"I like to think of myself as a 'Janet of all trades' who knows a little more than just a little about many different things. Meeting new people and having meaningful, honest interactions is one of my favourite things".
 

Paul Cupido

Paul Cupido

Age: 29
Occupation: Aftercare Teacher
From: Johannesburg

Quote:

"I'm someone who's always up for a challenge – spiritually, mentally and physically and someone who often puts others before himself. I entered Survivor SA because I wanted to be part of a social experiment, but also because I was craving a new adventure and a bit of excitement in my life."

Age: 30
Occupation: Chemical Engineer
From: Secunda

Quote:

"I've been playing the hypothetical game in my head for the past five years, discussing it and breaking it down with my wife and having loads of fun doing so.

"My wife and I have watched every season of Survivor out there. It's my dream to be able to play the game I've grown so fond of over the past 20 years".
 

Santoni Engelbrecht

Santoni Engelbrecht

Age: 39
Occupation: Online Business Owner

Shaun Wilson

Shaun Wilson

Age: 40
Occupation: I.T. Entrepreneur
From: Cape Town

Thoriso M-Afrika

Thoriso M-Afrika

Age: 36
Occupation: Marketing Officer
From: Uitenhage

Quote:

"I'm the eternal optimist, fiercely loyal and a colourful character who lives in my own world. I'll stand out as an anomaly on the show because I wouldn't be caught dead camping, am a creature of comfort and would probably die if I ever did something like this alone".
 

Tyson Zulu

Tyson Zulu

Age: 24
Occupation: Creative Director and Entrepreneur
From: Johannesburg

Quote:

"I'm a super creative, a jack of all trades and a perfectionist to a fault. I love animals more than people. 10/10 times I'll always speak my mind and do what I feel.

"I want to be a big player in the film and TV industry and learning, first-hand, from the biggest show in the country is a massive opportunity".
