Blame It On Fame Season 2


Sadly BIOF fans maabane watched the last episode of the surprise hit reality show starring Hlelo and Ntando Masina. I was invited to the finale party last night but unfortunately did not attend. I however have managed to get word from eTV that the show will definitely be returning for a second season. Of course that's what we all expected, into emnandi iyaphindwa, right?

Blame it on Fame which started early September on e.tv and concluded its first season last night has been renewed for a second season which we will hopefully see in 2012. We watched last night in the 13th episode as tension continued between Hlelo and Ntando after their argument about Ntando’s long-distance relationship.



More on the episode: Ntando is anxiously waiting to hear back from Shashi Naidoo about the FHM casting. The Masina children (a moment of silence as I reminisce about a moment when a certain Masina child who nearly made me spill coffee on my lap when the said person appeared on screen. Hawt!) are at home in Benoni for a family dinner when the topic of, Hlelo and Ntando’s argument a few days earlier, arises and the family are very vocal towards Hlelo about meddling in her sister's relationship with her ghost boyfriend (sorry I couldn't help it ... LOL). This doesn’t seem to help smooth things over between the twinz. Hlelo goes on an emotional rant about how she would never want to see her sister in pain. As if we didn't love her already, when she got into that speech I melted. All that was missing in that moment was for her to just say.... (come say it with me) Hee banna!!! #Cute


The episode ended with Hlelo at the plastic surgeon's office to inform him of her decision…what has Hlelo decided? Is she getting a boob job or not? Better keep away from the social scene if you want to keep the mystery alive because we gon' be checking out your breasts when we see you, Hlelo. Jokes aside, I was not too excited about the ending. The cliffhanger isn't really strong enough to make you yearn to see the first episode of the second season. The show had done a good job of not revealing who Ntando's man is...
  • Does he even exist or are they just playing with us? 
  • Wouldn't it have been great if the season ended with Ntando's man knocking at the door to surprise her? 

Think about it; In the shot Ntando goes to the door and opens it. Just as she nearly faints with excitement/shock we have "fade to black" instead of a reveal of who this mystery man they keep talking and fighting about is. Now that would be a cliffhanger. That would have gotten fans anxious to see the second season.

About the second season, Monde Twala, Etv's channel head said;
“We are currently engaged in planning for another season with the Twins” 
''South Africa fell in love with the Twins in the first season and the target market wants more. Blame it on Fame worked across all age groups, gender and demographics” 
“The classy yet simple production style made easy viewing for all.”
Could not agree more on that one. The show proved that you do not need limousines and expensive french champagne or go to Hollywood to have a glamorous yet classy show. The production made the Twins, even with all their successes, look like normal kids thus making their fans believe that they are not that special, anybody can achieve the same goals in life if they work hard.
“The next season will be upping the pace and unveiling new twists and turns within their day to day challenges. The channel is pleased with the show and its appeal to showcase real up and coming celebrity lives,”

 Well Mr Twala we will be waiting. Hopefully next year the show would be an hour long. And have more of the Masina brothers on screen especially Fortune. :)

I actually watched the show for the first time yesterday and i was very impressed, i love how really the show is (it reality TV after all) unlike some other reality show on Vuzu that looked very scripted and unreal and i'm looking forward to the season 2.

Someone has a crush. I wonder who that Masina child is? I was gonna say Hlelo but clearly it's one of the brothers. Maybe Fortune since you want to see more of him on screen. Lol.

Phil ke Fortune why you smile at the end of the article?

Phil Mphela said...

Lol, for the record I DO NOT have a crush on anyone. I'm not 12. But just to indulge you, I did not mention the name of the person who made me spill my coffee while watching the show. Instead I used THE SAID PERSON and in the article I used 3 names of Masina kids. So Ntando is eliminated because she was not in the Benoni scene which leaves Hlelo and the 3 boys.

I like Hlelo but... you know :). So Hlelo is out. We are left with 3 people. OK? Now Fortune gets eliminated because I do mention his name so I could have just used his name earlier.

Are you still with me? I have cut down potential suspect so you do the math.
