Cape Town-based life partners Rod Hemphill (60) and Lesley Verhoef (59), of Team Tenacity, entered Ultimate Braai Master for their love of adventure.

And adventure they had, until last night’s episode of this outdoor cooking show on e.tv. Their team motto, “Yes we can!”, failed them and they were eliminated and sent home.

Last night the tension was rising between the remaining seven teams as they cross tongs in a challenge that's all about quintessential roadhouse food. While it seems like an easy challenge, Team Tenacity failed to produce the perfect burger, fries and milkshake.

Rod and Lesley say the most challenging part of the competition for them was to keep calm while everyone else was losing their cool. Braai Buddy Lesley admits that waiting for the judges to make a decision was even tougher.

Catch the 10th episode of Ultimate Braai Master next Thursday on November 13, at 20:30 on e.tv.

Teams cross the border back in to South Africa after three incredible weeks in Namibia and travel to what is known as the Northern Cape's Green Kalahari on the banks of the Orange River. This is the tenth leg of their epic road trip and after a freezing trip down the river, teams have to produce three types of braaied pizzas. While some teams ace the challenge, others serve up burnt offerings that see them go into an elimination challenge that's all about swine. After a long, hard day around the fire and a lack of teamwork and communication, one team is sent packing and their epic road trip comes to an end.
