Siv Ngesi, Boity Thulo talk Strictly Come Dancing

Siv Ngesi is impossible to interview because he had me laughing out loud instead of being able to ask him hard hitting questions. I would never disappoint you guys though as I did manage to get some juicy tid bits from him.

Of course I asked Siv if he would ever do Survivor and his response was: “I would WIN Survivor”!! Quite a confident little funny man! After he complimented my accent (hahaha), he then asked me to feel his pecks and punch his stomach. Yes ladies, the man is ROCK SOLID!

Siv is a self-professed good dancer when it comes to hip-hop at a party. He is usually the last one shutting the dance floor down. His big problem is dancing with a partner which he says is “tricky”.  


With Siv Ngesi 

I ended the interview (or should I say the hysterical laughter) by asking Siv how grueling his Strictly Come Dancing schedule is. His response: “I’m fitter than the average human being. I play competitive sports including waterpolo and rugby. This (SCD) is harder than any sport I’ve ever trained for!”. There you have it folks. Strictly Come Dancing is hardcore!

With Boity Thulo

For those of you who watched episode 2 of SCD last week, you would have seen Boity Thulo and her partner take a bit of a tumble (or should I say a lot of a tumble!). I was so impressed with how she handled it though. She actually said that it “felt good” to fall because it got rid of her nerves! I chatted to her after the performance and her words were: “It’s not about the fall, it’s about getting back up!”. Handled like a pro.

The first couple has been eliminated from the show as South Africa’s votes put Janine Davies and her partner Tsholo Mohohlwane in the bottom two. The judges did not save them and the biker turned dancer was the first eliminated celebrity.

I must admit that Janine was totally out of her comfort zone from minute one. She looked consistently uncomfortable but I applaud her for taking a huge risk and participating in this terrifying process that is so far away from who she is in real life. Good on you!!

Who will be the next celebrity to pack their bags? Make sure you guys tune in every Friday night at 8pm and every Saturday night at 7:30pm. All on SABC 3!
