Michelle 'Mphowabadimo' Mvundla from Daveyton was crowned Big Brother Mzansi season 3 winner on Sunday night.
Mvundla, who was the only woman in the top five, beat Gash1 to win the R2m grand prize and titleholder of the season.
The reality show started on Sunday, 23 January with 18 participants – and in the end – five housemates Tulz, Mphowabadimo, Themba, Gash1, and Libo made it to the finale.
Viewers across the country became protective of her when she was often mocked for her spirituality by other housemates.
Fans also loved her honesty about her past, her passion for her calling, and admired her strength, positivity, and willingness to forgive and forget.

The show made its long-awaited return in January and introduced SA to contestants such as Terry Treasure, Vyno, Dinky Bliss, B.U and Venus.
From the beginning of the show, controversy hit the season when Keamogetswe 'QV' Motlhale from Mahikeng abruptly quit the show in less than 72 hours of joining "to protect her mental health".
Terry shocked Mzansi when she confessed that she was an adult content creator and has an OnlyFans account. She chose to use the platform to teach the housemates about the pros and cons of having an OnlyFans account.
Another housemate who used her platform to represent the LGBTIQ community was Sis Tamara, and many viewers enjoyed her free-spirit personality and vulnerability.
While many bonds were created and friendships made, a lot of love connections were formed in the house like Terry linking up with Vyno, plus Gash1 with Thato as well as Venus hooking up with B.U and Themba.
Venus, however, decided to not pursue any of the guys after her exit.
From diverse housemates who have left such as Nale, Thato to double eliminations, the twist and turns have been welcomed. While the majority of the show has been a success, there have however been complaints about the production of this season, the choices of DJs to perform during the Saturday shows and the lack of drama.
