Come Dine With Me in K&C

An opportunity for readers based in Kensington & Chelsea to take part in the cult television series “Come Dine With Me”

 

Many of you will have watched an episode of Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me or at least glimpsed five minutes of this car crash television series.

 

For those who do not know it, the show takes four or five strangers and over four or five nights, they take it in turn to host what the producers describe as “the perfect dinner party.” The guests rate one another and the one who gets the highest score wins £1,000 in cash.

 

“Come Dine With Me’s” advertisement seeking contestants from Kensington & Chelsea

One of the most amusing episodes of Come Dine With Me featured four British expats living on the Costa del Sol. Essex girl Mekala Hodgson, wine merchant Greg Van Praagh, “fun loving thrill-seeker” Mandy Strutton and a Frank Butcher-style comedian named John Morton didn’t exactly hit it off. Spending four evenings with them would frankly would have made a dinner with Hannibal Lecter seem appealing.

Though I know several people who have participated, in the main the people who appear are plainly chosen because they are somewhat odd. Freaks, after all, make better television. Channel 4 have done extremely well with the show as a result and as their sarcastic narrator, Dave Lamb, makes a point of utterly trashing the cookery skills and personalities of those competing, viewers generally find themselves laughing at the contestants rather than with them.

 

Now, the producers are looking for individuals living in Kensington and Chelsea to participate. Do you dare? We’ll all be watching.

  1. John Morton was a complete knob. Rude. Unfunny. Arrogant. A man totally up his own arse. I would have wiped the floor with him if he had behaved like that in my company.
