Yesterday, TLC in association with Colgate Optic White announced Martins Benson Junior as the fifth semi-finalist, making it through to the next stage of the TLC Next Great Presenter Search.

This upcoming media personality hails from Lagos, Nigeria, and secured his spot in the ‘Lucky 13’ from more than 1500 auditions received from across the continent.“Being selected as part of the Top 13, I believe I am everything TLC is looking for and even more. I am artistically unpredictable,” Martins said.

Martins is a bold, versatile and confident media intern who obtained his presenting experience from being exposed to the media and fashion industry. He believes the fun TLC tradition inspired him to want to become the channel’s Next Great Presenter.

Now, all roads lead to Cape Town for Boot Camp, where Martins along 12 others from all over Africa aim to turn their 90-second video audition into their dream job. During the four-day Boot Camp, they will be put through their presenting paces by the judges and industry experts, as they undertake screen tests, performance coaching, fashion styling, as well as brand and media training to see who really has what it takes to be a host on Africa’s #1 lifestyle and entertainment channel.

“I am looking forward to meeting the other contestants from different countries, but most importantly, I want to use this as an opportunity to learn from industry experts to help me become better equipped for the job,” he explained.

While all the constants believe they have what it takes to be the TLC’s Next Great Presenter, it will be left to the judges to decide who should be crowned the winner and travel to London to film the brand new series, TLC’s Most Extreme coming up on DSTV 135 in 2017. The winner will also feature in a special once off documentary and win a luxury holiday for two courtesy of Sun International. For more information
