All of those who submitted final results are that much closer to their goals – isn’t it time that you gave it a go?

So, a huge round of applause to our top 20 challengers who walk away with awesome prizes (pictured below) as well as bragging rights in our latest challenge! And, of course, a massive thanks to our awesome prize sponsors!

Sleekgeek gives away R50,000 in cash each challenge across the various categories and you can watch Elan here LIVE phoning all the category winners who each walked away with R10,000. 

There are 5 winners in each of the 4 categories:


Judging process

A quick reminder that we have 4 categories to ensure fair competition: Men’s transformation, women’s transformation, men’s weight loss, and women’s weight loss.

Transformation is judged by our independent panel of judges via an audited voting process.  The Transformation category is determined by who the judges believed had to do the most work to get from ‘Before’ to ‘After.’

Weight loss is judged purely by percentage of weight lost, based on before and after measurements submitted and confirmed by before and after photos (which include a photo of their measurement on the scale). 

Note: This was the first time in 21 challenges that we have used percentage of weight lost rather than simply total weight lost. This was due to popular demand by the community who raised the issue after each and every challenge. You can read more about that change here.

Sleekgeek and its staff are not involved in the final decision-making and we accept the judges’ decisions as final.
