MUZI Clive was tipped to win the first acting reality show. But when the host, Kenneth Nkosi, opened the envelop, it was Sdumo Mtshali's name that was written in the stars.

So Muzi's dream of fame and prospects of making it big in a new gangster movie currently in development as part of the prize of the competition was shattered.

The two were the last men standing after a tough 10-week audition.

Muzi was generally regarded as a better actor.

Mtshali was declared the overall winner of the Amstel Class Act.

The studio audience was equally surprised by the verdict, with the exception of the winner's family members. It was the public SMSes that won the day for Mtshali.

His prize is the lead role in Ghetto Dangerous.

The movie, to be directed by Donovan Marsh, is produced by Curious Pictures with executive producer Tendeka Matatu of Ten10 Films.

The feature film will premiere in 2011, although in the meantime Mtshali will feature in a new Amstel commercial.

Muzi, of Bramley, Johannesburg, will play second fiddle to Mtshali.

He will also attend Actors Boot Camp in Los Angeles in the US, and also receive representation from casting agent Moonyeen Lee of MLA.
