Rijesh, who grew up in Eshowe, takes great care of his body, spends many hours in the gym, and has done some modelling work. This former Natal high-jumper is used to juggling many jobs. From time to time you'll find him playing bartender at cool clubs.
Why could he survive in Malaysia? This colourful, sporty guy will crush anything that stands in his path. He really doesn't care to speak his mind, but is also a charming manipulator.
Describes himself as... "a well-groomed man who turns nasty when someone tramps on his toes."[1]
