YOU Spectacular nominees 2013

It might be cold out there, but come the 27th of July things will get all kinds of hot when some of SA’s biggest names gather together for this year’s YOU Spectacular. The event goes down on 27 July at The Lyric, Gold Reef City, Gauteng and if you’re wondering who the big nominees are this year, check out the full list below:

You’ll also see my predictions for who I think will win… To make it fair, I’ll select two (especially because some of the categories are too close to call) and note this does not necessarily reflect my preference, it’s who I think stands a better chance. They’re all equally deserving of the awards, but there can only be one.

  1. Tyrone Keogh (best dress male)will win hands down! He practically has no competition there! …Although I don’t understand why wasn’t I nominated !!!…Best dress female without a doubt Bonang…Best newcomer Jonathan Boynton-Lee deserve it! But Khaya is a bit of a threat. Sexiest woman…why isn’t Marylin Ramos nominated!? She’s the sexiest girl in SA by far from those nominated but Gail should go home with that award!!!….Favorite Presenter, I’d love for Proverb to win! Cause Bonang look so rehearsed on Top-Billing! But she’s going to win anyway….Jack Parow must win haha!…It’s a fair nominations ultimately! May the best win.

    1. Thanks for your comment Roberto. I think we’re on the right track with our predictions then. I’ll be honest, Marilyn hasn’t featured much for me this year, but with her in mind I don’t know why on earth Melinda Bam isn’t on that list. Girl is and she’s everywhere at the moment!
