Win a home winner Yvette Blignaut

It’s the biggest prize on South African television right now! Win A Home on SABC3 continues to be a show that changes lives as Yvette Blignaut from Edenvale won her very own apartment at Balwin Properties’ luxurious Paardevlei Lifestyle Estate worth R3 million in the exciting fifth season finale.

Yvette was one of six finalists randomly drawn from around the country after entering the competition on the Private Property website and is now the proud owner of her very own brand new dream home.

2018 has been a difficult year for Yvette having been retrenched in January, after seven years of service with an office printing supply company. Originally from East London, Yvette loves the coastal life and has been looking for a chance to move to Cape Town with her two pugs and partner Chantal. From starting the year with a retrenchment to ending the year with a brand-new luxurious home worth R3 million, Yvette is proof that life can be unpredictable at times.

“It was a surreal moment,” explains Vyette. ”I saw the key in the safe, but was so overwhelmed by emotion it didn’t register at first. It feels unbelievable. This year has been incredibly tough on me and I didn’t know what the new year was going to bring. I was in a dark place, but now, the darkness has lifted and suddenly I can see the light. This has truly been a life-changing experience.”

Over the past 12 weeks, the Win a Home Design Duos, Rekopile Belebesi and Koketso Marole (team R&K), Kehumile Mate and Nicholas Smit (team Contrast Control) and Melissa Oosthuizen and Sinead Turner (team Perma Peeps), have transformed three white-box apartments at Balwin Properties’ Paardevlei Lifestyle Estate in Somerset West into spectacular designer homes. Each penthouse is fitted with the latest appliances from Samsung ensuring they are truly designed for a connected lifestyle.

Now, in a nail-biting season finale, Rekopile Belebesi and Koketso Marole of Team R&K were crowned as the winning Design Duo after wowing judges Bryan Courtney of Private Property, Slade Brookes of Balwin Properties and Buhle Mathole of Kabu Design Architects. They walk away with the Judges Choice prize of R100 000.

Known for their glamorous and sophisticated designs, Team R&K brought a clean industrial look to their space while maintaining a warm African feel. Sharing the victory with Team Contrast Control in the first challenge, they started the competition with a bang and went on to design the winning kitchen, as well as the judges’ favourite lounge and balcony space. The duo cemented themselves as frontrunners of the competition and continued to surprise the judges with their ideas and practicality which ultimately saw then secure the title as the winning Duo of Win A Home season five and scoring themselves R100 000 in cash.

“This duo has grown the most as designers through this series. Their sense of style and glamour shines through in their work. While they were not always the most organised team, they brought a sophisticated culture to their spaces,” the judges said of the winning design duo. “They took risks with beautiful art pieces and unique design elements while still maintaining a practical liveability. Listening and learning was their strongest asset and. as a team, they implemented many of the suggestions from the mentors and judges and therefore grew tremendously throughout the show. They truly created a glamorously modern African-inspired space.”

“Design is a way of life and winning has proven to be just that, a truly humbling experience,’’ said Koketso reflecting on the win. Her teammate Rekopile agrees, saying; “For me design has always been about the balance between aesthetics and functionality. I think we were able to achieve that, and we are so grateful for the recognition!’’

Furthermore, Kehumile Mate and Nicholas Smit of Team Contrast Control received the most votes from the viewers at home which scored them an incredible R20 000 cash prize as Viewer’s Choice winners, which was handed over to them in the form of a giant credit card by Sbusiso Kumalo, Head of Marketing at Capitec Bank.

The big winner is undoubtedly Yvette Blignaut, who can start the new year in a spectacular new home at the Paardevlei Lifestyle Estate in Somerset West and who’s life truly has changed. Win a Home is proudly brought to you by Capitec Bank and Private Property South Africa PTY Ltd.

Thabiso Makhubela On The Fifth Season Of Win A Home

Thabiso Makhubela Win A Home

The fifth season of the interior design reality show Win a Home continues to be as popular as ever. It all comes to a conclusion during the exciting Grand Finale that will be broadcast this Thursday 13 December at 19h30 on SABC3.  

ALSO READ: Danilo Acquisto On The Fifth Season Of Win A Home

Over the past 12 weeks,  the Win a Home design duos, Rekopile Belebesi and Koketso Marole (team R&K), Kehumile Mate and Nicholas Smit (team Contrast Control) and Melissa Oosthuizen and Sinead Turner (team Perma Peeps), have transformed three white-box penthouse apartments at Balwin Properties’ Paardevlei Lifestyle Estate in Somerset West into spectacular designer homes fitted with the latest connected appliances from Samsung, in the show’s fifth season, proudly brought to you by Capitec Bank and Private Property.

This season, Presenter Search on 3 winner Thabiso Makhubela joined Danilo Acquisto as host of the popular design show. Thabiso added his own unique flair to the show which saw him bring his passion for design to the show.

Five Minutes With Thabiso Makhubela: 

Why do you think a show like ‘Win A Home’ is so entertaining to watch?

Everybody loves a good reality show. Win A Home is entertaining because of its hugely unpredictable nature. Every week viewers get to fall in love with the design duos for different reasons but never know how their favourite duo will perform in their challenge. 

What drew you to host a show like ‘Win A Home’?

I am obsessed with lifestyle shows. I have watched so many of them and it’s a space where I really enjoy playing in. It’s great to see the progression of something like a home on a reality show and how fast changes are made week after week. This was such a natural fit for me.

What, in your opinion, do the design duos battle with the most when starting the design process?

The design duos are always having to battle with what is functional and what looks good so they often find themselves in a position where they have all the amazing ideas but have to scale down to deliver on time and on brief. It’s something every contractor deals with and seeing what that process leads to is entertaining.

If you were to design an apartment of your own on the show, what approach would you take to the overall theme of the apartment?

I am a simple guy so I would go for something very minimalistic – something with a lot of black and white with touches of wood.

The show is live every Thursday night. What do you love the most about live television?

There is a thrill about doing live television. Essentially, what you see is what you get. It forces you to just get into the space and be as real as you can be – and that’s something that viewers really appreciate. 

As the ‘Win A Home’ finale draws near, what can fans expect from you in 2019?

Next year, I will still be presenting on The Expresso Show every morning. I love that place and the energy around it so make sure you wake up to your feel-good breakfast show every morning. But, I will also be venturing into some charity work. I am launching a foundation with a specific focus on youth empowerment across Southern Africa. I am really excited about this. 

Meanwhile, the design duos await the results of the two prizes in what promises to be an exhilarating finale this Thursday. In the main Judges’ Choice prize, our esteemed judges will critique every single aspect of the designer homes and will essentially decide which duo will walk away with the R100 000 grand prize. Then, the team who accumulated the most votes throughout the season in the viewers competition will win a R20 000 cash prize.

But the big winner is the lucky viewer who, from the six finalists randomly drawn, will win their choice of one of the three penthouse apartments, as decorated by the design duos, at Balwin Properties’ Paardevlei Lifestyle Estate. It’s a prize valued at over R3 million, which makes it the largest prize on South African television. Win a Home is truly a show that changes lives forever.

Win a Home, proudly brought to you by Capitec Bank and Private Property, culminates with the season’s grand finale this Thursday at 19:30 on SABC 3.

The two were indivisible for many years. Both broke into the entertainment industry back in 2011. Their friendship break-up in 2016 left many fans shocked and wondering what might have just happened. However, according some reports, they reported that the friendship came to an end after Somizi allegedly told DJ Zinhle about AKA and Bonang’s affair.

In an interview on MTV Base’s Behind The Story, Somizi caused a frenzy on social media after he opened up about not no longer wanting a relationship with Queen B anymore.

Somizi and Bonang sparked rumours of a reconciliation in August, when Matheba greeted the Idols SA judge from the stage at the DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards nominee announcement party.
