Charlie Karumi is flying Kenya’s flag high as one of the top 3 finalists for the TLC Next Great Presenter. He was chosen from a group of thirteen semifinalists after a rigorous 4 day boot camp training sessions, expert coaching and tough challenges in Cape Town, South Africa. He is competing for the slot with Carissa Cupido from South Africa and Karen Paida Mukwedeya from Zimbabwe.
The lucky winner will jet off to London and present a brand new four-part series, TLC’s Most Extreme, set to premiere on TLC Entertainment (DStv 135) early next year, and receive an all-expenses paid holiday to the Palace of the Lost City, courtesy of Sun International.
He has this to say “I still can’t believe that I was chosen – it feels unreal and totally unbelievable! I’ve kinda dreamt about becoming a TV presenter since primary school and now it’s all coming true. Although bootcamp was tough, through this process I have learnt how to thrive on and become more accustomed to pressure, I feel like nothing can stop me now!I’m ready for the next phase.’
Voting opened on Monday 10th October and is set to close on Tuesday 15th November. His social media is evidence of his rigorous campaign to clinch the top prize and after all the media tours he is now calling on you to cast your vote. You can cast your vote here and help Charlie clinch the win.
