Big Brother Africa 8
Maria is single, has a Public Relations Diploma and is from Ondangwa. She lists spaghetti and chicken wings as her favourite foods and 50 Shades of Grey as her favourite book. Maria entered Big Brother in the hope of getting exposure which will boost her broadcasting career. She promises viewers “a lot of blonde moments” and also says she’ll “be real”. If she wins the grand prize, she’ll buy a new car and pay off her house - and probably give the rest to charity. She lists a friend who's currently battling cancer as her role model. The achievements she’s most proud of so far are having her own radio show and being chosen to host the Namibian Music Awards. Maria says her favourite personal trait is her kind and compassionate heart and she values honesty and respect in others. She hates gossip-mongers and promises viewers: “I am the real deal”.
