My Top Billing Dream Presenter Search

Ever wanted to be a TV presenter? Have you got the desire to travel the world, see some of its best kept secrets? Have you ever had the desire to meet and interview some of the world’s biggest names? Well then you need to listen up. SABC 3‘s Top Billing is once again embarking on its presenter search drive. This time around the search will roll out in the form of a reality TV show called My Top Billing Dream Presenter Search. It’s going to be entertaining at first but then the hard work starts as the competition heats up. It will all culminate in what is sure to be a dramatic and a very close finale in August. From my experience, be sure to get there early. Hundreds of people show up, so the wait to audition is a long one, but hey… at the end of the day it could be the best wait you ever participate in. So are you the next Simba, Jeannie, Lorna or Janez?

Most people go to sleep to do their dreaming, but a few wake up in the morning and go to work to do theirs. If you are ready to live your Top Billing dream then May might just be your lucky month. Top Billing and SABC3 are proud to announce the return of the presenter search.

Auditions take place in Bloemfontein, Durban, PE, Polokwane, Cape Town and Joburg. Call-backs will get us to the final 100 and from there the 10 contestants that will take part in the My Top Billing Dream Presenter Search from July to August. You can either enter online or at the venue on the day but make sure that you bring a copy of your application form, a signed copy of the Terms & Conditions, a recent photograph of yourself and a copy of your ID. Get details on our website at

All the hope, glory, madness and genius of Top Billing’s next generation will be brought home to you during three Saturday specials, each of two hours on the 16th, 23rd and 30th June.


Following these Saturday highlights, through June and July, six of the show’s prime-time Tuesday slots will be totally devoted to the drama, the thrills and comedy of the finalists running the gauntlet.


Top Billing’s ace presenters will show contestants that experience IS the best and only teacher. With guest comedians playing good cop, bad cop, judge and jury, the top contenders will get their style on, get smart, get physical, horizontal, vertical and try never to get hysterical.


The shows will test the 10 finalists with all the challenges the Top Billing presenters face on set to bring you the best in lifestyle television.


Tuesday, August 7 will see the show go live with the last three finalists competing for the coveted top spot. There can be only 1 winner… To follow where Michelle, Neil, Bassie and Michael have led. To join Janez, Jo-Ann and Sinazo, Jeannie D, Aidan, Lorna and Simba and be the next to live their own Top Billing dream, for real, only on SABC3.
