Come Dine With Me South Africa: Episode Six
Atlantic Seaboard, Cape Town

TX: 16th November 2011, 9pm, BBC Entertainment 

BBC Entertainment’s hit original commission Come Dine With Me South Africa, sponsored by Pick n Pay and associate sponsors Knorr, comes this week from the beautiful Atlantic Seaboard in Cape Town.  

The four contestants vying for the R10 000 prize are; biker chick Viqui Stevenson, well to do Aubrey Ngcungama, aspiring filmmaker Roscoe Kleinloog and interior decorator Marlene Weepner.  

First host Viqui’s concerns about her slow roasted leg of venison is well founded but Aubrey barely notices as his enjoyment of the wine supersedes his taste buds. Roscoe’s enthusiasm for the food earns him the nickname ‘The Inhaler’ and Viqui’s smoked snoek and caper tart with celeriac remoulade has Marlene tongue-tied. 

The second dinner party is hosted by a somewhat hung over Aubrey who starts as he means to go on by pouring a gin and tonic while preparing his very special starter fungicciono and main course beef wellington.  Aubrey’s starter is a hit, but his dessert leaves some of his guests feeling a bit underwhelmed. 

Host number three Roscoe decides to get the party started by handing out some aprons and wigs which doesn’t go down so well with Aubrey who decides he doesn’t want to be blonde.

Things go from bad to worse for Roscoe when his guests question his standard of hygiene not to mention his starter of escargots served with blue cheese and fresh cream.  

The final dinner party host is interior decorator Marlene whose beautiful home is at odds with her main course of bobotie, yellow rice and sambals, which leaves Aubrey feeling decidedly under the weather.  Roscoe however proves to be a pushover once he has a go on Marlene’s vibrating bed.  The winner comes as a surprise to all.
