This bubbly Durbanite has always had a love for comedy that grew from prank calls as a young teenager, to writing and performing her own comedy show at age 19.
She credits her parents for her early fascination with comedy. “My parents are very funny,” she says. “My mom laughs at her own jokes, which is cute; and my dad is very loud and boisterous.”
Kerusha’s comedic talents lie in her incredibly accurate accents and impersonations, of which she has a variety including a coloured South African, a black South African, an Indian South African; three American accents, French, Russian, Chinese, Indian, Pakistani and British.
Since being named as one of the Top 10 contestants, Kerusha is determined to make her dream of being a Top Billing presenter a reality.
“Right now it’s about me; I’m ready to take on this challenge. I have the passion and desire for it. It feels as though I’ve been chasing a dream and now I have the opportunity to catch it.”
Will Kerusha be able to put aside her comedic voices and let her own one take centre stage?

Kerusha's link and judges comments for Task 2:
On her makeover experience: “I've never had highlights before as I love my dark hair. I had to trust the hairdresser and just go with it. It makes me look totally different.”
On the clothing challenge: “It was fun as I love shopping; it's such a girlie thing and I'm such a lady. One thing I definitely know how to do is pick out clothes in a rush!”
