Real/ Full Name: Thando Hlwatika
Hometown: Aliwal North
Thando describes herself as an extrovert, impassioned, funny, crazy and dramatic.
She feels her best when people that she loves are happy and dislikes condescending people who look down on others.
She says the best advice she has ever received from her mother was: “Never settle for mediocrity, aim to be the best and among the best”.
Thando is passionate about empowering bright minds from disadvantaged backgrounds. She expects a lot of drama and suspense from Big Brother Mzansi and hopes to see lots of hot guys.
She says that her friends would be shocked when they find out she’s on Big Brother Mzansi but is pretty sure that they will be supportive. “I know they know I got that Million Rand entertainment vibe about me”, says Thando.
