Fabian vies for Mr SA title

The final will be held on January 28 at EnGedi.

Fabian Frank has had an interesting and busy year as contestant of Mr South Africa.

Since July, Fabian, from Bakerton, has been one of the 25 finalists in this competition.

He will be starring in the reality show, with the final to be held on January 28 at EnGedi, a venue in the Cradle of Humankind.

The 25 finalists will fight it out in a reality show on DSTV Channel 262 before the final 12 are announced for the finale.

The date of the screening is as yet unknown.

The 13 episodes, shot at EnGedi, will see one contestant eliminated at the end of each show.

The show has already been filmed and although Frank knows who the final 12 competitors are, he is not allowed to disclose this information.

He and all the other contestants signed a document where they promised to keep the finalists a secret.

Frank says this competition is striving to find the man who can act as a role model – balanced in health, intelligence, passion, drive, ambition, attractive and a leader who can inspire and motivate.

He says fulfilling the tasks required of a finalist, being at his full-time work as project manager at a Nuffield-based engineering company and running his sports business, has made his year very busy.

The 100 days, especially, when he had to reach out to the community as part of the competition, were seriously challenging.

He says by participating in Mr SA he became more focused on pursuing his goals and dreams.

This includes the establishment of a children’s home in Springs and becoming a successful businessman.

He says the Mr SA competition’s exposure is phenomenal and made him not a number, but a man of stature.

During this year Frank also became a qualified Christian preacher who preached his first sermon on December 7 at the Trinity Methodist Church, in Lodeyko.

He says one of the biggest lessons he has learned this year is the ability to say no.

Another lesson he learned is that you have to understand that it takes baby steps to accomplish your big dreams.
