Cape Town – In less than three days since its premiere, Big Brother Mzansi, has already lost a contestant due to “personal reasons”.
The reality show was beginning to gain momentum on social media when the giant broadcaster Mzansi Magic – who is airing the show – released a statement that Keamogetswe Motlhale who goes by the name QV on the show is exiting.
QV’s exit follows an open session that the contestants had on the live production about their personal experiences.
She shared her ordeal of how she was raped at the age of seven by different men. Her vent let her expose her vulnerable side, as she shared her trauma with her fellow contestants.
The 23-year-old was among the 18 selected contenders for the show, who often air their dirty laundry on the reality TV show in contention for a prize that the last remaining contender wins.
Mzansi Magic said QV has been connected with a psychologist to help her deal with her past traumatic experience.
“A psychologist is working with her to ensure a smooth transition back into the outside world and guide her through her journey going forward.
“We wish her all the best on her journey and she has our full support,” said the Director of Local Entertainment Channels for the channel Shirley Adonisi.
