Karabo Mogane and Lihle Ngubo exit Tropika Island Of Tresure

Karabo Mogane and Lihle Ngubo

Last night saw another shocking elimination take place on Tropika Island Of Tresure. #TeamGreen, which consists of Karabo Mogane and Lihle Ngubo, were the fourth team to leave the Maldives after a series of challenges saw them at the bottom of the leaderboard.

The team has remained consistent throughout the series so far, but, their time on the island is up. Their exit started off with an exciting quest-like challenge called ‘Hole In My Bucket’. As the name suggests, teams needed to fill a bucket with water by using a bowl with water from ocean. However, both the bucket and the bowl had holes in them which meant that the teams needed to use their speed skills to fill up the bucket in the fastest time to win the challenge. After a grueling challenge which saw #TeamGreen unable to fill up their bucket, the team forfeited the challenge which put them in last place.

The second challenge, named ‘Swim n’ Pull’, required teams to pick one member to swim into the ocean to retrieve one of four bags from buoys, with the other pulling them back to shore. Once the four bags were retrieved, the bags, which each held a bottle of Tropika, needed to be opened; once all four Tropika bottles were on the table, the challenge ended. Karabo and Lihle placed third which scored them two points. However, it wasn’t enough to keep them out of the elimination challenge.

Sbahle Mpisane And Nondu Mabizela Third To Leave #TIOT8

Sbahle Mpisane and Nondu Mabizela

After last week’s shock elimination which saw Team Coral (Melinda Bam and Kelly Gunnell) being eliminated, Katlego Maboe (in last night’s episode) delivered another Slenda Twist which saw Team Blue, Sbahle Mpisane and Nondu Mabizela, as the lowest scoring team, and ultimately, eliminated from the show.

Nondu struggled during a game of ‘skim the bottle’ and was the last consumer contestant to knock down her three Tropika targets scoring one lonely point. The celebrities then tried their hand at the game which saw Sbahle gaining two points as she placed fourth in the challenge.

The second challenge, named ‘How Much Junk Do You Have In Your Trunk?’, saw Nondu and Sbahle’s unlucky streak continue as Nondu found herself in last place again bagging another single point, while Sbahle found herself in fourth position yet again scoring another two points.

The elimination challenge saw Sbahle, Khanya, Nondu and Lihle fight for their lives in a challenge titled ‘Hang In There’ in which the four contestants had to literally hold on to their place in the competition. After a nail-biting few minutes, Sbahle fell into the water and lost her place in the competition. A few moments later, Nondu fell in and Team Blue became the third team to be eliminated.

Top Gear sets a new Guinness World Records

This week’s Top Gear sees Matt LeBlanc revolutionise British agriculture by creating a high-speed tractor – and ahead of the episode – The Stig has set a new Guinness World Records title for Fastest Tractor with a speed of 87.2mph in a uniquely modified version of the farmer’s favourite ride – the ‘Track-tor’.

LeBlanc and Chris Harris also make an attempt to break the world record but viewers will have to wait until Wednesday at 8pm on BBC Brit (Dstv Channel 120)to see if they achieve it or not – however their tame racing driver has already set the bar high by smashing the previous record (80.87mph – in Vuojärvi, Finland held since 19 February 2015) whilst driving the ‘Track-tor’ on the set of Top Gear on Wednesday, March 14th.

Engineered at the Top Gear Agricultural Technology Centre, the ‘Track-tor’ is a 500-brake horsepower, Lamborghini-style orange coloured farming automotive Frankenstein – powered by a 5.7 litre Chevy V8 engine and supported by 4-wheel brakes, adjustable air suspension and 54-inch tyres. And in true Top Gear style – it’s also fitted with a push button start, a barometer and a wellington boot and spade rack.
