Dating Game Show
Singles who are looking for love are sent on dates with the families of three potential partners, and must decide who to date based solely on the impression their family gives.
In the Season 5 premiere we meet Nonceba Maloba, a 24-year-old nurse from Boksburg who is looking for a man with muscles who is tall and handsome, a "cotton eater" and who dresses well and smells good too.
Which is a little rich, seeing as how she eats a tasty three-course meal and afterwards lets rip with an enormous fart on the couch.
You gotta see it to believe it.
