Mzansi Magic's Our Perfect Wedding has always been known for its revolving door presenter policy and now the series has given this new meaning: the next host will be selected via a public vote Presenter Search.

Thembisa Mdoda has headlined the show for the past two seasons, along with guest presenters who've stepped in for her when she's gone on vacay.

According to Mzansi Magic, Thembisa's contract has come to an end so the search is on for someone to replace her as the new full-time host.

These are the presenters who've headlined the series so far:

Season 1: Thuli Thabethe
Season 2: Brenda Ngxoli
Season 3: Phumeza Mdabe
Season 4: Tumi Morake
Season 5: Tumi Morake / Ayanda Mpama
Season 6: Thembisa Mdoda
Season 7: Thembisa Mdoda / Jessica Nkosi / Nomsa Buthelezi (Nomsa will host until the new host is found...)
Season 8: YOU?

The auditions are happening at the beginning of spring and it's a highly notable gig to land. It's the No.1 show on DStv, which means that whoever hosts it will get noticed - look at what it's done for Thembisa's career.

The downer is that auditions are only happening in three cities when they should be happening in all nine provinces! #Cheap

These are the audition dates and venues:

East London
Venue: Premier Hotel Regent
Date: Saturday, 2 September 2017

Venue: Protea Hotel – Marriott Edward
Date: 9 September 2017

Venue: The Pyramid
Date: 16 September 2017

Audition must-knows

The series is looking for a presenter who has a warm personality and the ability to connect with viewers.
Auditions are open to South African citizens with valid South African ID books.
You need to be 25 and over to audition.
The potential presenter will be auditioned by the producers and shortlisted for a second round of auditions.
A panel of judges will select the contestants who will compete in a public vote in the final phase.
Doors open at 08h00 and close at 18h00.

If you have questions, you can call: 010 594 5127.

Why don't they look for two presenters? All hosts, from season 1 have "complained" how demanding this job is (in terms of spending time with family). They can take turns in attending weddings. I'm honestly getting tired of the changing faces. When you finally warm up to someone they leave (I'm hoping the next presenter/s will last atleast 3 years?). But then again, I just want my favourite host from this show, Phumeza to come back

Hi qavile - we've asked about it and they say that auditions are open to everyone so it's up for grabs for a guy.

I can't believe they're only doing three's thee biggest show on DStv - how could they NOT go to every province??

They could have made such a huge and exciting deal of it by visiting each province - really made it a phenomenon by emphasising that it's the country's biggest presenting gig on paid-for TV.

It's weird, it's like they've just thrown it together instead of focusing on its full potential.
