Thando Thabethe has undoubtedly been one of the greatest breakout stars of the past few months. She is currently the drive-time host on popular radio station 5FM and was a face on My Perfect Family and Generations: The Legacy. Now, Thando is returning to TV with a ‘Thando Bares All’ – a brand new eight-part talk show on TLC.

The show will bring together Thando’s sassy, straight-talking style in a unique talk show format made specially for TLC super fans. Focusing on the popular TLC shows and themes viewers know and love, ‘Thando Bares All’ will encourage people to be open and honest about the things that society might be afraid or embarrassed to speak about. From body positivity, outrageous style, naked attraction, polygamy and super-human achievement, nothing will be off topic in this refreshing and entertaining talk show.

“When TLC approached me to present this show, I was ecstatic. I am a huge fan of the channel and thoroughly enjoyed working with the brand as a judge for its Next Great Presenter competition in 2016. This for me is a step in the right direction for my career in the entertainment industry. I can’t wait to start filming Thando Bares All and finding out what South Africans think about the topics that really matter,” Thando says.

Thando will co-host the show alongside TLC Next Great Presenter winner Carissa Cupido, who will front immersive breakout pieces, finding out what the public thinks on the personal subjects that will be discussed in each episode.

“TLC proudly celebrates inspirational, larger-than-life characters, and we are incredibly excited to welcome Thando to the family,” says Dilek Doyran, Vice President of Commercial Development and Country Manager of Africa. “Thando Bares All is about bringing people together and tackling topics we know our viewers will have strong opinions on. With her charismatic personality and unique presenting style, Thando was the perfect fit to front the series and we look forward to bringing even more OMG moments to our viewers when Thando Bares All comes to TLC early next year.”

This is another big move for the media personality who has always wanted to break into the talk space. Who knows, if the show is successful this could be the start of an exciting new chapter for Thando.

‘Thando Bares All’ premieres on TLC next year.
