Khosi, a 25-year-old journalist, quickly became a fan favourite due to her charming personality and strategic gameplay. She formed strong alliances with other housemates and managed to avoid eviction throughout the season. She was up for possible eviction every week till the show’s end.
In the finale, Khosi went up against five other finalists: South Africa’s Ipeleng who was the first person to be evicted, followed by Nigeria’s Ebubu and Yvonne. Afterwards, South Africa’s Tsatsii was evicted as the second runner-up of the show, leaving Nigeria’s Kanaga Jnr and Khosi to go toe-to-toe with Khosi.
