A competition to find the ultimate dinner party host, Come Dine With Me SA is a celebration of our country’s rich diversity and cultures. In each episode, four enthusiastic amateur chefs, who’ve never previously met, will snoop around each other’s homes, sample each other’s cooking, and pass judgment on each other’s entertaining and cooking skills, and score each other out of 10. At the end, the person with the highest number of points is declared ‘the host with the most’ and wins a cash prize.

The producers of the show, Rapid Blue, are looking for a group of individuals who believe they are great in the kitchen, love entertaining, and have the ability to perform under pressure.

Rapid Blue is one of South Africa’s leading television production companies producing shows such as Strictly Come DancingThe X FactorSA’s Got Talent, and So You Think You Can Dance.

Kee-Leen Irvine, MD of Rapid Blue says, “We are thrilled to be producing another season of Come Dine With Me, this time on the SABC. The series taps into people’s fundamental domestic differences, their cooking and their tastes, and what it takes to entertain others in style. With the contestants’ internal feuds and culinary clashes, Come Dine With Me SA is set to be uniquely South African and contagiously compulsive viewing.”

An ITV Studios format, Come Dine With Me has been broadcast in over 30 countries across the globe.

The closing date for entries is Sunday, 26 February. Applicants must be over 18 and must be a South African citizen or permanent resident currently residing in Gauteng. You can apply here.
