American actor Michael Jai White has been named the co-host of the etv’s new reality show Last Fighter Standing!
The 48-year-old former American actor will host the show alongside South African television personality K. Naomi. The show will begin airing in July 25.
This comes after the actor, who is famed for his role as Marcus Williams in Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married and Why Did I Get Married Too? made a surprise Skype appearance at the media launch event at Innovatec in Sandton.
White told attendees he was looking forward to being part of the unique entertainment concept and is very excited to celebrate this project with South Africans.
“Martial arts has always played a huge role for me and it taught me the discipline I needed for all areas of my life,” said White.
The 12-part reality show follows fighters from various martial art disciplines around the country in their quest to be crowned the Last Fighter Standing South African Champion 2016 – and win their share of R1 million.
Last Fighter Standing premieres on e.tv on Monday, 25 July at 22:30PM
