The online presenter search competition encourages aspirant presenters to upload their auditions which they can record on their cellphones, smartphones, digital cameras, etc. onto YouTube and to enter via the website www.presentersearch.com. Jo-Ann held the first #OnlinePresenterSearch in 2012 which became the world’s largest competition of it’s kind with hundreds of entries being uploaded and 4 finalists being selected.

This year, the competition is open to entrants from across the African continent and auditions are to be uploaded in English and must be 30 seconds long.

The four finalists chosen will be traveling to Reunion Island with Jo-Ann and a still to be announced celebrity mentor. They will be participating in adventure sports and shooting a mini-reality series. This will be broadcast via the website http://www.presentersearch.com and the various social media channels and the public will be invited to vote for their favourite finalist and win fantastic prizes. The winner will become an online presenter for e.tv and gain valuable experience and exposure in this way. Samsung will be the main sponsor and will supply various mobile devices for the finalists to use on the island to be able to share the action via social media. The finalists will be staying at the LUX* Ile da Reunion which is the island’s only 5 star resort. They will fly there directly from Johannesburg with Air Austral.

The winner will be announced on 20 September 2013.

Pop star Rihanna was reportedly rushed to the hospital early Wednesday due to ‘exhaustion and dehydration’ after dazzling in a Tom Ford black crocodile dress on the red carpet at the Met Gala in New York on Monday night. The “We Found Love” singer wasn’t spotted at the Met Gala after-party at the Crown restaurant or the Prada bash. RiRi posted a picture of herself attached to an IV drip in a hospital on Twitter. As yet there has been no official communication about the reason for her hospitalization, but there is speculation that Rihanna‘s hectic work schedule and late nights have taken a toll on her health. It has been announced she will perform on the finale of American Idol on May 23. New photographs of a fun, yet raunchy Rihanna have been released, photographed by well known photographer, Terry Richardson.
