Heinz Winckler walked away with the title of the  first winner of Idols SA in 2002. 

"In the beginning, the win did go to my head - I was young. Over the years things changed but people still think I'm arrogant - but I'm not", Heinz confessed to Rian.

Who can forget Ferdinand Rabie - the first winner of Big Brother South Africa. 

He made headlines all around the world for his unacceptable behaviour in the competition show. 

"When I entered the show, I had no idea what I was doing. I think why the first season was so good, is because no one had any idea what to do."

Can you remember his winning moment?
