'Chappies' Chapman - Bio
SurvivorSA 8 logo  SA: Immunity Island bio

Official SurvivorSA: Immunity Island bio, from News24.com (5/2/21):

"Entrepreneur Francois Chapman (32) from Centurion, is better known as 'Chappies' to his friends and fellow castaways. He describes himself as an optimist by nature, who loves life and strives to make a positive impact in others' lives by living his life to the fullest. 'Swim upstream or don't swim at all,' is his motto. Chappies says there's nothing he wouldn't do to win the game. 'No hard feelings, just a hard game,' he says."
