One of Mzansi’s favourite social cooking shows, Come Dine With Me: South Africa, returns for its seventh season on BBC Lifestyle.

The South Africa Film and Television Award (Safta) winning show follows four home cooks from different backgrounds as they meet new people and cook for guests they have never met.

Each host cooks a three-course meal at their home, which will be judged by their guests and scored out of 10. The highest scoring cook walks away with R10,000 in cash. Come Dine With Me: SA will once again be hilariously voiced by legend Dave Lamb, a statement read.

What to expect in season seven of ‘Come Dine With Me: South Africa’:

This season, the show has 12 episodes which will air in two parts. The first six episodes premiere on 10 November on DStv channel 174 at 8pm.

The final six episodes will return after the Christmas break, on January 26 at 8pm.

Episode one

Four contestants from Randburg, Johannesburg, have been described as bold and eccentric. They include “pug-aholic” Judd, the life of the party Caley, lover of all things “boujee” Kholofelo and the off-beat, wine-loving family man Shamalan.

Episode two to four

The first three episodes are located in Johannesburg and the hosts battle to outshine their contestants in entertainment.

In episode two, Adele will serve up an Afrikaans-inspired menu, MC and gin distributor Themba hopes his ambitious menu will get him top points, while law student Robyn joins the battle of the oxtail and well-travelled Hugh takes his guests around the world with his menu.

Episode three promises viewers to be the funniest. The contestants are comedy content creator and former ad man Sipho, copywriter and Russia-obsessed Tamlyn and self-confessed diva Emanuela.

Lastly, episode four. The hosts have over-the-top themes and menus, as self-professed lady’s man Christopher, a very confident Kwaku, Ruvin and erotica writer Gina compete to win R10,000.

Episode five and six

The Mother City will get its chance to shine in the last episodes. You may know some of the personalities that will appear.

Episode four has a competitive radio sports presenter Nathan, an honest Lethabo, a self-confessed social beast Grace and a likeable Somila.

In the final week, there are four entrepreneur contestants. They include managing director Christine, entrepreneur James, director of communications Priya and food blogger Natalia.

The last two episodes are Christmas themed.
