Now, Simphiwe Ngema and Siya Mfenyana open up about their Tropika Island of Treasure experience after their elimination from the show:
Talk to us a little bit about your experience on Tropika Island of Treasure this season.
Simphiwe: Nothing about this experience was unfortunate. For us, we did our best, we had a great experience and we did everything we could to get here. I am proud of myself and I am proud of Siya for everything we accomplished. I tried a lot of things that I never thought I would do in my life and I have seen that I am, in fact, a strong person. I had so much fun on the show.
What advice do you wish you got before the show about the challenges and tasks you were faced with?
Siya: Don’t overthink things; sometimes the answers are not rocket science; and take your vitamins – you’re going to need a whole lot of energy for the challenges!
Curaçao looks like a beautiful island. What was the highlight of your experience there?
Siya: The crystal-clear beaches. It’s what is on my vision board. I didn’t know how or for what reason, but I knew I had to go to a place with a beautiful beach – and it happened!
What was the biggest highlight about your time on Tropika Island of Treasure?
Simphiwe: I think my highlight was spending time with fellow celebs and contestants on the eve of our elimination. There was a buffet style dinner by the beach with live performances from myself, Caldine and Bouwer. We had tons of fun that evening.
Why should people continue to watch Tropika Island of Treasure for the remainder of the season?
Siya: The great group of people who are all unique and bring something different to the show. No two episodes will be the same and the rest of the season is set to be filled with loads more excitement and some interesting twists…
