Gauteng Ultimate Braai Master Audition Winners Stacey and Christopher Woensdregt .

Stacey and Christopher Woensdregt could hardly believe their luck when they were selected as the first winners of Huisgenoot/YOU/DRUM’s lucky draw to win chance to audition for outdoor cooking reality TV show Ultimate Braai Master Season 3: Time for Tough.

This husband and wife team, who called themselves “Meat me at the finals”, were the Gauteng winners of the draw and took part in the Johannesburg auditions on Saturday 8 March.

Although the couple didn’t make it to the next round, they said being at the auditions was “one of the best experiences of our lives, another experience to tick off the bucket list!”

“To have met Justin Bonello was truly an experience as he’s one of our idols. We arrived with energy, spunk and excitement. Cooking an Eastern-inspired dish, we set out to be different and feel we did just that,” Stacey said.

“The sponsors were great as they supplied us with Coca-Cola, boerie rolls and water. Being filmed was also fun, and we took to it like garlic in butter,” Christopher added. “We wish all the teams good luck and know the show will be a rocking success. This isn’t the last everyone will be hearing from us – we’ll keep on like energizer bunnies on our cooking journey. Thank you everyone for allowing us to enjoy such a jam-packed, fun day.”
