Retrieved from

Surname: Venter
Age: 21
Occupation: Radio Presenter
From: Parkrand, Boksburg

Energetic, optimistic, exuberant and motormouth-millennial, Mike is the youngest of the Survivors in the South African show's seventh season. While studying law, Mike started pursuing a career in radio, first honing his skills at varsity radio station Voice of Wits and now doing a stint on EastCoast Radio. If someone can change the world, it's Mike! Being an intelligent only-child from a middle-class family, Mike excelled at a prestigious boys' school where he was head prefect in Matric, but it's also important for him to debate socio-political issues, challenge conventional ways of thinking and questions the status quo. "It's time for the youth to stand up and claim their place in the sun – by winning Survivor," he says. Only problem is he can't sleep without taking a hot bath and gets "hangry" by 9:30 in the morning. But maybe he's just joking – because it's obvious that he can talk a good game and likes a smile on his face.[1]
