TEAM TROPICAL REIGNS SUPREME IN THE GRAND FINALE OF TROPIKA ISLAND OF TREASURE ALL STARS!
The wait is over and the winners have been crowned! The season finale of Tropika Island of Treasure All-Stars Season 10 has come and gone and what a ride it has been.
From the All-Stars starting their journey leaping into the rooftop pool of the Southern Sun Hyde Park Hotel at the illustrious launch event held in March of this year, to the journey on the show now having come to an end. Fans were taken on a 12-week-long adventure full of surprises as 18 consumer contestants and 8 celebrity All-Stars first battled it out in St Lucia, KZN, for a coveted spot to compete at the Seychelles for their share of the grand prize of R1M!
Wading through the crystal-clear waters of the Seychelles, seven smoooth duos have come, and have left the final three to strive for the ultimate treasure.
The last three duos that headed into the final stretch were Team Piña Colada which consisted of All-Star Jonathan Boynton-Lee and his partner fitness coach Lelani Loots, Team Tropical consisting of All-Star Karlien van Jaarsveld and her partner model Ruan Scheepers, and Team Mango Peach which included All-Star Brendan Peyper and his partner TV presenter Boitumelo ‘Melo’ Moloto. The final six contestants have endured countless rounds of physically and mentally challenging games, survived the elimination challenges saving them from the dreaded wrath of the PainApple, and have been faced with drama-filled Long Life Ceremonies that put their loyalties to each other to the test.
“Tropika Island of Treasure has pushed boundaries year-on-year to provide entertainment to fans across the country and the All-Star season has surpassed expectations to be the best season yet of the acclaimed series bringing the smoooth to Tropika fans once again”, says Miantha Roux, Clover Beverages Business Unit Head.
In a development totally reminiscent of the unexpected twists and turns this season has come to be known for, all three of the final duos represented Pretoria in one way or another. All-Stars and Afrikaans musicians Karlien van Jaarsveld and Brendan Peyper, as well as fitness trainer and consumer contestant Lelani Loots, all hail from the Jacaranda City.
And for the moment everyone has been waiting for: Team Tropical was crowned as the Tropika Island of Treasure All-Stars season 10 winners! After a demanding physical challenge tackling the mountainous terrain and deep blue seas of the Seychelles, the victorious duo came out on top after a glorious win in a puzzle challenge that officially set them in stone as the current reigning champions of Tropika Island of Treasure.
Through every gruelling challenge, the contestants put their limits to the test, and Team Tropical has now got their hands on the grand prize of a shared R1 million, and R250 000 worth of prizes from Suzuki each! The runners-up, Team Piña Colada, didn’t leave empty-handed though, they received R25 000 each from the premium online entertainment platform, Play.co.za. As an added bonus, throughout the airing of the season, Tropika Island of Treasure has come out on top as one of the most-rated reality competition shows on SABC 3!
“From the beginning of auditioning fans to be on Tropika Island of Treasure All Stars and watching them compete in St Lucia and Seychelles, to this moment of crowning the winners, the journey has been exceptional. With this All-Star season the Tropika brand has shown that it has a special place in the hearts of South Africans, by bringing the smoooth to millions”, says Barbara George, Clover Beverages Brand Group Manager.
While the show may be over, Tropika Island of Treasure has fully personified bringing the island fever to South Africa through their partnership with Island Tribe sun protection and by introducing a first-ever smoooth collaboration with Mr Price Home.
