Kat’s (Patrick Seleka) had his heart stomped on by Mapitsi (Mo­gau Moth­latswi) in 2011 and Bot­sh­elo (Neo Ramit­shana) ditched him in 2014 for a bas­ket­ball schol­ar­ship. It seems his bad-love luck is chang­ing though when he spots a pretty girl at culi­nary school, but then racism rears its head to stop them in their tracks.

WHO’S THAT GIRL?

Kat goes gaga for Candice (Liza van Deven­ter) af­ter see­ing her in chef Mar­lene’s (Camilla Wald­man) class on Wed­nes­day 24 Au­gust. “She is pretty and learnt to cook from her gran, who is the cen­tre of her life, just like his is to him,” says Patrick. But Kat sees Candice in a new light on Thurs­day 25 Au­gust. “There are things in class that he didn’t see at first be­cause he was fall­ing for Candice and when his class­mate Sphola (Tha­bang Le­foa) makes him aware of them, he sees his lec­turer and Candice in a com­pletely new way,” he says.

THIS IS WAR

“Kat is an­gry when he re­alises that chef Mar­lene is racist to­wards black stu­dents, but more so that Candice is all buddy-buddy with her,” says Patrick. Kat likes Candice, but there’s a prob­lem… “He’s up­set with Candice and lets his anger cloud his feel­ings for her.” But by Fri­day 26 Au­gust, Candice proves to Kat that she’s noth­ing like Mar­lene. “She hasn’t dated out­side her race and she’s try­ing to fig­ure out if it’s real or not be­fore she com­mits to any­thing,” ex­plains Patrick. “But when Kat wants some­thing, noth­ing stands in his way.”

SILENCING THE CRITIC

On Mon­day 29 Au­gust, Kat is de­ter­mined to show chef Mar­lene who’s boss when she makes a ref­er­ence that she doesn’t ex­pect him to un­der­stand. “It’s some­thing about a movie he watched, that she wouldn’t have ex­pected from him,” Patrick says. “The thing about the sto­ry­line is that Mar­lene is al­ways look­ing down on black stu­dents, con­stantly mak­ing snide com­ments and pa­tro­n­is­ing them.” But chef Mar­lene’s in for an even big­ger sur­prise as she has no idea about Candice and Kat’s blos­som­ing ro­mance. And she’s not the only one…
