Richard Bezuidenhout wins Big Brother Africa II!
Tanzania’s Richard Bezuidenhout has won Big Brother Africa II. The 24 year-old film student had a tumultuous time in the House. He fell in love, had more than a few tantrums and survived nomination five times on his road to the $100 000 prize.
Nigeria’s Ofunneka Molokwu took second place, with Tatiana Durao of Angola coming in third. Ofunneka and Tatiana both win tickets to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, courtesy of MTN.
Richard received votes from Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe. Ghana, Malawi, Nigeria, Zambia and the rest of Africa voted for Ofunneka, while Tatiana received Angola’s vote.
In his post-eviction interview, Richard tells the crowd “I love you all. Whatever I do I want to change people’s live positively.” He then has an emotional reunion with his brother and sister before receiving the $100 000 prize.
