It's not yet in the states is it?

BBC Worldwide Channels has announced the commission of ITV Studios’ format Come Dine With Me South Africa. The agreement with ITV Studios Global Entertainment, the international distribution arm of ITV Studios, is the first local production commissioned by BBC Worldwide channels for the region.

Come Dine With Me South Africa will be produced locally by Rapid Blue and pre production on the series will begin this month. The show will debut this October on BBC Entertainment (channel 120), available on the DStv platform. The series will also air on BBC Worldwide Channels networks across the Middle East, Scandinavia and Poland.

Shooting for the 10-part series will take place in three different locations in South Africa: Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.

Come Dine With Me follows five total strangers competing for the title of the ultimate dinner party host. Each night for a week they will take it in turn to cook up their idea of the perfect evening. As well as cooking, the rival hosts snoop around each others’ houses and go to bizarre lengths to win the competition. At the end of the evening, the host is judged by their guests and scored out of ten. The contestant with the most points at the end of the week wins a cash prize. Come Dine With Me is a consistent ratings hit with audiences in the UK and the format has proved to be equally popular with international broadcasters. To date the format has been sold into over 30 territories across the world, including Iran, Australia and France.

So, it's pretty much a reality TV show. Sounds interesting I guess.
