It seems donating an item for display on BrightRock’s #LoveChange Showcase is the gateway to success, with no less than two recent studio guests of The Dan Nicholl Show breaking through career barriers after donating prized items for the showcase.

First there was EFC heavyweight fighter Andrew ‘One Gear’ van Zyl, who donated a pair of very precious, change-signifying boxing gloves in episode 6 of the show. A day after appearing on the show, Andrew reclaimed his heavyweight title when he knocked out Brendon Groenewald within 32 seconds thanks to a powerful left-right combo at EFC 39 at GrandWest in Cape Town.

And then, short on One Gear’s heels, fellow guest Chris Forrest nabbed the Celebrity MasterChef  SA title from songstress Patricia Lewis, with a salmon trout cerviche and avocado sorbet and a mouth-watering saddle of lamb in the Pressure Test. Congratulations Chris! Watch what Chris had to say about his Celebrity MasterChef stint on the video clip below:


Having recently become a dad, Chris decided to share a special item from this Change Moment when he donated a baby bib for display on BrightRock’s #LoveChange Showcase:

Chris has so much to say about this Big Change Moment, that he penned and stars in a one-man-show, Who’s your daddy, which opens at The Theatre on the Square later this month. And he clearly doesn’t mince his words about the challenges new dads face! Watch what Chris has to say about this below:
