  • My Kitchen Rules SA, returns to M-Net (DStv Channel 101) in September.
  • Entries for teams of two open on 1 June 2021 and will close at 00:00 on 30 June 2021.
  • "When creating your home audition video, showcase each of your personalities and your skills in the kitchen," says home book and judge J'Something.


The yummiest local cooking competition, My Kitchen Rules SA, returns to M-Net (DStv Channel 101) this September for the ultimate culinary face-off. The fast-paced and intense cooking competition will see teams of avid home cooks go head-to-head in a bid to impress their fellow competitors and celebrity judges - J'Something and David Higgs - all in the hopes of winning the R1 million grand prize.

"The pandemic has made food, cooking at home and cooking together as a family big again. All this time that South Africans have spent inside the kitchen and online following their favourite foodies raises the bar for the new season," says award-winning Chef and MKRSA judge David Higgs.

The amateur foodie pairs will start their pressure-cooker journey in an Instant Pop-up Restaurant round, where each couple will host their competitors and the two celebrity judges with a themed three-course dinner. Then, couples who avoid the chopping block in round one will proceed to the Challenge Knock-Out Competition rounds, where they will battle against each other in a series of cooking challenges at the MKR kitchen HQ and various off-site locations. 

M-Net is looking for authentic South Africans in teams of two, who have a great connection, are foodies at heart and ready to bring their personal style and flavour to the My Kitchen Rules SA table. If this is you, visit the M-Net website along with your foodie partner (the partnership must be a pre-existing and strong relationship like a spouse, best friend, fiancé, neighbour or cousin, etc.) and fill out the online application form, which includes a video entry. Entries open 1 June 2021 and will close at 00:00 on 30 June 2021. Both team members must be 18 years old or older on 1 August 2021.

Passionate home cook and judge J'Something shares some advice for the entrants of season three: "When creating your home audition video, showcase each of your personalities and your skills in the kitchen. Most importantly, make sure that you and your chosen partner have a good connection and great rapport in the kitchen. Good luck!"

My Kitchen Rules SA will premiere on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) in September. Visit the M-Net website for exclusive show content and join the conversation on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook using #MKRSA and #mnet101.
