The Kasi Guys entered SABC3’s The Ultimate Braai Master (UBM) to show off their culinary skills with a kasi twist. They planned, if they won the title and the R500 000 prize money, to open a cooking school on a farm.

But things didn’t happen according to plan for them, and last night they were eliminated in the fourth episode of the show.

But it wasn't a big disappointment for the Kasi Guys when they couldn’t survive the elimination challenge, says Martin Sebelebele (46), braai master of the team. “At that stage we were tired and worn out from the six-hour main challenge which took place just before the eliminating challenge.”

For the main challenge teams had to cook a feast for the crew and guests, including half a bush pig, three quail and two trout per group. Then they had to serve a baked dessert to end it off.

Directly thereafter the losing teams – Kasi Guys, Smoke, Sweat & Tears and West Coast Bro’s – went into the elimination challenge to braai the perfect steak. But Martin and braai buddy Ziza Masemola’s steak wasn’t good enough and they faced the end of the road.

Although they didn’t win the big prize money, Kasi Guys walked away with R20 000 to put towards their dream of opening that cooking school.

We asked the Kasi Guys (KG) a few questions:

Q: Tell us more about yourselves.

KG: We’re relatives and both work in the catering industry in Ga-Rankuwa, north of Pretoria.

Q: What was the highlight during filming for you?

KG: We'll have to say the canoeing; it was a memorable experience. The funniest was when we tipped over and fell into the water!

Q: What was your biggest fear during the competition?

KG: We had none whatsoever.

Q: What was the most extreme challenge?

KG: Cooking with mystery baskets in mystery locations. It’s an extreme challenge on its own because you don't know what you'll be cooking and for who it will be.

Q: Which outdoor environment was your favourite?

KG: At Hluhluwe Game Reserve we experienced the marriage of tranquillity and nature in the deep mountains of KwaZulu-Natal.

Q: Which team was your toughest competition?

KG: Team Spectacular, because they were more focused and firm.

Q: Why did you enter?

KG: We entered The Ultimate Braai Master to showcase our culinary skills to the rest of South Africa.

Q: What is your favourite meat to braai? KG: Well-matured prime beef rib because it's full of flavour. We just love braaiing – it's the easiest way of preparing a meal in the blink of an eye. Share your thoughts:
