Thank God for that one!

General Manager for Marketing at Pick n Pay, Malcolm MycroftMeet says “As a family brand with a proud history of supporting “local”, Pick n Pay is especially thrilled with the way South Africans have responded to the competition’s second Season, and the talent and originality that’s been on display at each of the regional auditions. Ultimate Braai Master successfully combines three quintessentially South African passions – braaiing hearty, local fare with friends and family in the great outdoors. Pick n Pay has elected to play its Wild Card by selecting a semi-finalist team that demonstrated a high degree of originality and spirit at the Johannesburg audition. Following on from the incredible performance of last year’s Wild Card Gal Power team, we’re confident that this year’s Wild Card team will prove that braaiing is as much about the spirit of the braai as it is about creating great meals on the open fire.”

The winning team will be announced in the final episode of Ultimate Braai Master, which will be screened on SABC 3 on 11 December 2013.  Some of the most memorable recipes from the Series will be packaged into a second commemorative Ultimate Braai Master cookbook from Justin, in time for Summer.  The winner will walk away with the title, R500 000 in cash, a Renault Koleos SUV 4 x 4 valued at R340 000 plus a number of other great prizes.  Ladies and gentlemen, here they are this season’s contestants of the Ultimate Braai Master!

The 14 teams are joined by Pick n Pay’s Wild Card team, Darkies Unleashed, represented by Braai Master, Thabiso Motloung, an internal Auditor and his financial analyst Braai Buddy, Motebejane Mofokeng, both from Katlehong in Gauteng.  Love their team name! Ha!
