Come Dine With Me SA Episode 6 Synopsis
It’s week six of BBC BRIT’s Come Dine With Me South Africa and four Durban hopefuls step into battle to win the coveted R10k cash prize. Witness Chantal, a rugby enthusiast with a penchant for relentless puns, go up against hotel chain manager Stuart, digital marketer Laureen and quirky art teacher Dorothy in this pun-a-minute riot – who will be the host with the most?
Night one belongs to rugby-mad Shantel who hosts a Springbok themed event, complete with green gum-guards and a thousand puns a minute. Literally kicking things off by blowing a referee’s whistle, things go from mad to madder as they sample her starters “Let’s Get the Ball Rolling” (risotto balls with pesto), her mains “Curry Cup” (butter chicken with naan bread) and her dessert “Sweet Victory” (a Green and Gold Sweeton Mess)! If her guests thought Chantal would run out of puns after her night, they had another thing coming.
Night two arrives and it’s art teacher Dorothy’s turn to host, hoping she can woo her guests with her salmon avocado stack starters, harissa chicken mains and tiramisu dessert. With Chantal’s dire hatred for avo and Laureen’s disgust for tiramisu, some would say she gets off to a sketchy start. You would hope her art class entertainment would turn things around, but instead it turns into pre-school fights and insults. Oh dear – two more nights to go!
Hotel chain manager and high-flyer, Stuart takes on the hosting hot seat on night three but will his cooking be up to scratch? With Raki-marinated prawns for starters, beef cheeks for mains and Durban craft rum marinated banana’s with rum and raisin ice-cream to finish, he’s in for a good chance. But guess what – Chantal hates bananas and by the end of the evening all the others were wishing she hated puns too!
It’s the final night and Laureen delivers a traditional Zulu menu with a twist, as she hopes her creamy Batata soup, a trio of South African Sishebo (a three-way tripe, chicken and beef stew) and her moist tipsy chocolate shandisi will win over the palettes of the group and score her the prize. Laureen had a few puns of her own up her sleeve, but will it be enough to claim the ten thousand rand?
