Jody Williams was one of the youngest 'Idols' winners in South Africa, but things did not turn out the way she planned. 

After her win in 2007, it caused a massive rift in her family. People who managed her career at the time also ripped her off big time, she said.

Shortly after her win, she bought her parents a very expensive house in Durbanville. 

Gigs were not coming in and Williams struggled financially.  

"I wish that we only had a life coach and financial advisor back when I won Idols, I think things would have been so much different," Williams told The Daily Voice

Williams is now a receptionist and is happy with her life. 

Can you still remember former 'Idols' winners and where they are now?
