Are you The Ultimate Braai Master?

Do you consider yourself to be an awesome braai-er? Have you got a dream of showing the rest of the nation how it is done? Well here’s your chance. SABC 3, Pick n Pay and Cooked in Africa films are looking for you.

The Ultimate Braai Master television show is the brainchild of Justin Bonello, who is famous for his bush cooking and culinary delights around the continent in the form of a few very successful TV shows. This show is will launch later this year and it will roll out as a 13-part reality TV show. Bonello will select fifteen teams that will consist of a Braai Master and a Braai Buddy. Those teams together with Bonello will be visiting 13 different locations, in a 52-day adventure. The winner stands a chance of pocketing R500 000, a car and of course the title of the “Ultimate Braai Master”.

Sounds great right? Well it will be, but it wont be a walk in the park as Bonello says. “To earn The Ultimate Braai Master title, teams will have to sign up for a 52 day road trip, during which time they’ll be expected to occasionally catch their own food, source their ingredients under the toughest conditions, and cook to a standard of culinary excellence that will thrill our judges and raise the bar on the kinds of meals that can be produced on an open fire.”

Keen. Well you need to:


–   Be a food lover who is slightly above average in the cooking department.

–   Be 18 years and older

–   Have a valid driver’s license.


You need to enter online at www.ultimatebraaimaster.com by no later than Monday, 27 April.


This is something I would love to enter; unfortunately my culinary skills are all that great. So you needn’t worry about me 😉 Enter now good people!

Elma Smit wins Lady Rugga

SuperSport‘s search to find a female presenter who will join the boys in covering the Rucks and Mauls, talk about the penalty conversions, the scrums and the line-outs at this year’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand is done. A big congratulations goes out to Elma Smit who walked off with the title last night. She beat out thousands of other hopefuls to be crowned SuperSports Lady Rugga.  Judges Darren Scott, Naas Botha, Ashley Hayden and Elana Afrika decided Elma was the ultimate Lady Rugga. Elma is no stranger to the industry. She is a presenter on music channel MK for a show called Studio 1. She also presented for this year’s Varsity Cup and she’s a 5FM DJ. In general, fans on the Facebook page said they were chuffed with her win:

  • Congratulations Elma. You were absolutely fantastic and a deserved winner. We are rooting for you all the way and can’t wait for your first broadcast. From the biggest SHARK supporter thi

  • A HUUUUUUUUGE Congratulations to an amazing, most beautiful girl you’ll ever meet – Elma. SA will be well represented by you girl. Truly well deserved!
  • Baie geluk elma jy gaan ons girls se name hoog hou in die rugby, ek baie bly vir jou en geniet elke oomblike van dit!

I think Elma’s years of experience in this industry will be a huge advantage for her when she travels to World Cup in September. It’ll be hard work in that she not only has to deal with the fast-paced international press, the game itself along with all the players, coaches etc; the presenters on the channel who have been there for years and have their own knowledgeable opinions. We can get into the raw talent versus industry experience debate if we want. It’s an interesting debate we could chat about for a long time. Whatever your opinions are, Elma was the chosen one. Well done to her regardless.
