Come Dine With Me will be back for its seventh season this November!
It’s been a while since we’ve seen four amateur chefs compete against one another for R10 000 prize. While each chef dons themselves the best, we’ll leave it to their guests to decide if they really make the cut.
This season you can expect nothing less than extroverted and eccentric individuals who might or might not bud heads at the table. With R10 000 on the table, I’m sure they have reason to. But hey, this season’s contestants might surprise us.
The SAFTA award-winning show will continue to be narrated by no other than Dave Lamb. I know, we’ve missed him too. Let’s see what he has to say about our new contestants and their food.
The first six episodes of the Come Dine With Me series will be airing from the 10th November 2021 with the remaining six airing after Christmas from the 26th January 2022.
So, our competitors will be based in both Cape Town and Johannesburg, hosting each of their dinner parties in their own homes. At the end of each party, contestants will then rate their competitor’s food on a scale of 1 to 10. If they score well, one of them will walk away with the R10 000 prize at the last dinner party.
This season looks forward to meeting new bold and brilliant personalities, such as self-proclaimed pug-aholic Judd, Russia-obsessed Tamlyn, and erotica writer Gina with many more to follow.
Below is the synopsis of this season’s first six episodes
