The concept is simple. Every episode, filmed and aired live, will be dedicated to a particular celebrity, and will feature four die-hard celebrity fans as they compete in various interactive games in the hopes of being crowned the smooothest fan.

Each episode will be split into three parts, each containing a series of questions that relate either to the celebrity’s personal life or a connection to the celebrity’s professional career. The contestants need to prove that they are the celebrity’s smooothest fan by answering the various trivia questions in the fastest time to ensure a win. The show will uncover some fun facts about some of Mzansi’s biggest celebrities while giving viewers at home an inside look into the life of the week’s chosen celebrity. Each of the celebrities’ smooothest fans will make it to the final episode, where two contestants will go head to head in the final to win R250 000 cash and a Honda Amaze!

Miantha Roux, Marketing Manager: Beverages – Clover, notes that while the concept may be something new for the brand, it’ll contain all of the things that South African consumers have come to know and love from Tropika. “The television and digital space is a space we really enjoy playing in, and following a very successful 8th season of Tropika Island of Treasure hosted in the Maldives, Tropika wanted to shake things up a little with a new TV show. This doesn’t mean that TIOT is going anywhere – that I assure you. We are now just offering a new and exciting opportunity for even more South Africans to engage with Tropika and their favourite celebs, and win incredible prizes in the process!”

Rorisang Thandekiso is thrilled about being chosen as the show’s host. “This is my 10th year on South African television and it has always been a dream of mine to do a game show format. I grew up watching shows like Zama Zama, and now we have the biggest fan show coming up in South Africa. A new-format TV show that celebrates the entertainment industry in South Africa, fantastic celebrity guests who have all proven to be excellent custodians of this industry, and, the amazing fans that make our careers worthwhile! Viewers can look forward to great giveaways daily and a final cash prize of a quarter of a million Rand, but more than that – an opportunity to know their stars better”.
