The top three candidates have been announced in TLC Entertainment's (DStv 172) Next Great Presenter search and are Mpiwa Bagwasi from Gaborone in Botswana, David Mbeha from Windhoek in Namibia and Star Khulu from Johannesburg in South Africa.

Viewers will now have to vote from 28 October for who they want to present the show TLC Top 10 starting in December on TLC Entertainment for 4 episodes running favourite pieces of programming shown on TLC Entertainment before.

"For me it started with a dream and I was fortunate enough to find this opportunity which validated that dream," says Mpiwa Bagwasi.

"I look forward to the next stage," says David Mbeha. "I feel so privileged to have been selected as one of the three finalists," says Star Khulu.

"We chose our top 3 finalists based on their passion for TLC and how they came alive on camera," says Lee Hobbs, the vice president of channels for emerging business at Discovery Networks International for the Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEEMEA) region.

"The 12 semi-finalists were extremely talented and proved that they are all capable of having a successful career in the entertainment industry."
