There are 5 winners in each of the 4 categories:


👩‍⚖️ Judging process:

A quick reminder that we have 4 categories to ensure fair competition: 1) Men’s transformation, 2) women’s transformation, 3) men’s weight loss, and 4) 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 is the 4th time that we have now 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.

[BONUS] CONSISTENCY AWARD WINNER

This award goes to the person who was the most consistent in documenting their daily journey through their challenge over the 8 weeks.

WOW! Never before have we had so many people post so diligently for the Consistency Award and so we ended up with 9 finalists and some honourable mentions!

These people all showed MASSIVE commitment.

Honourable mentions: Liezel Johnson, Debbie Louw and

It was SUCH a close decision – with so little separating everyone – that we decided the fairest was to draw not 1 but 2 random winners from the finalists. They are:

🏆 Roelien Kruger and Salome Malan

They win 6 Months of Sleekgeek Group Coaching, a Sleekgeek T-Shirt, and a Sleekgeek Cap!


[BONUS] TEAM CHALLENGE WINNER

As a fun extra, we encourage challengers to form teams with friends, family, and even other Sleekgeeks who they have never met before. Teams range from a minimum of 10 to a maximum of 20 members.

How is the winning team judged?

We use a formula that takes into account the following:

  • Average weight loss of team members.
  • Percentage of team members who finish the challenge
  • Bonus points for team members who make it into the “top 10” of the Transformation category.

We had 22 teams submit their final results to be considered. 

🏆 CONGRATULATIONS to the winning team, UP 3.0, lead by Chantel Menziwa!

They had an average weight loss of 3.60kgs per person, a 100% team completion rate, and 2 team members finishing 5th and 6th in the Ladies Transformation Category for bonus points.

Honourable mentions to team Kratos 2 lead by Taswell Franciscus who came a VERY CLOSE 2nd and Team UP lead by Courtney Strauss placing 3rd.

The winning team leader gets R2,500 for their efforts, and all of the winning team members receive a Sleekgeek Diary and Sleekgeek Cap!
