PALESA (28) Radio presenter from Johannesburg

Palesa is a tough cookie who has risen above adversity in her life so many times that she feels that Survivor SA will be a walk in the park for her. This highly competitive mother of one describes herself as the friend you wish to have, and the enemy you don't. As a radio presenter her strength lies in being to speak confidently and convincingly, but her confidence could pose a threat if not moderated. The first thing Palesa packed in her bag for the island was a supportive bikini top "to hold the girls in place" during challenges.[1]
