Married at First Sight Mzansi

Would you ever put your faith in a team of experts in the hope of being scientifically paired with a partner of your dreams?

Not only that, but you only get to meet your 'perfect match' for the first time at the wedding altar.

Married at First Sight Mzansi, the second South African version of the international franchise (the first aired on Lifestime in 2017), will be helping eight singles do just that.

Witness this social experiment which follows eight courageous participants from diverse backgrounds, ages and walks of life saying "I do" to someone they have never met.

These newlyweds then have six weeks, with the specialists nurturing their budding relationships, to decide whether they're going to stay together or separate.

The participants are:

Boitshepo Mashetla (28) - Marketing specialist

Litsoanelo Seturumane aka Dee (31) - Insurance industry

Khumo Ngobeni (25) - Aviation

Sebenzile Ngwenya (31) - Sales consultant and personal trainer

Thabang Mvuyane (28) - Software tester

Thami Nyandeni (35) - Education sector

Victor Khutso Mokoena (34) - Campaign data analyst

Zithobile Sibaya (32) - Educator

Can love between two arranged strangers be successful and can the couples stay together or will they part ways and seek a divorce?

It's a wait-and-see game.

Lost U-Boats of WWII

Channel: HISTORY (DStv 186)
TX Time: 21h05
Genre: Documentary Series, History

Lost U-Boats of WWII

Follows treasure hunter Darrell Miklos and his team as they attempt to locate missing Nazi U-boats he believes are holding billions of dollars in stolen gold, jewels and art at the bottom of the Caribbean Sea.

According to some, at the end of World War II, the Nazis took stolen treasures and loaded it onto specially modified U-boats.

The vessels allegedly had their torpedoes removed so that they could store and transport gold, diamonds, art and other precious items across the Atlantic to South America.

Although some treasure has been recovered in Europe, a substantial portion of the remaining goods are still missing.

For almost 80 years these supposed treasure laden U-boats have remained in their watery graves.

Now, Darrell Miklos, son of legendary treasure hunter Roger Miklos, is setting out to complete a lifelong mission of finding the missing U-boats and their priceless cargo.

After first setting eyes on what he believes was one of the modified U-boats while diving as a teenager, Darrell has now found considerable evidence to back his initial sighting years ago.

He has in his possession a chart from 1948, created by a former US Navy pilot that shows the location of what could be seven U-boats near the Dominican Republic.

Across six episodes, Lost U-Boats of WWII will follow Darrell and his team as they embark on a treasure hunt by both land and sea, interviewing historians, locals and diving the waters in and around Monte Cristi, Dominican Republic, uncovering a wide-range of German WWII-era artifacts and clues as they attempt to locate the missing U-boats.
