You’ll all be pleased to know that the best cooking show on TV, Come Dine With Me South Africa, is returning with an all new season very soon. Yes… you too can be a part of this highly entertaining show.
For those who aren’t in the know, Come Dine with Me consists of a cooking/entertaining competition that takes place over four days between four people who’ve never previously met. Typically the shows involve the contestants snooping around each other’s homes, sampling each other’s cooking, and then passing judgment on each other’s entertaining and cooking skills. The winning host each week, as evaluated by those three people, will win a generous prize.
Come Dine With Me South Africa was the first locally commissioned show for BBC Worldwide Channels in the EMEA region and made its début on BBC Entertainment in South Africa in October 2011. The series attracted over 100 000 viewers per premiere episode and was one of the most fiercely followed shows on social media. The first series concluded with a celebrity special featuring M-Net presenter Ashley Hayden, SuperSport’s Neil Andrews, 97.4 Highveld Stereo’s Samantha Cowen and model Shasi Naidoo. This year, I’m kinda hoping they invite me to take on some of SA finest pseudo-celebs… I’d like to think I’ve got some skills in the kitchen.
If you’re keen to be a part of it and you reside in the JHB/DBN/CPT area have a look at the show application. Countrywide contestant auditions will take place during May to July – by invitation only.
