The much-awaited Arabic language version of the British reality TV show ‘Come Dine With Me’ was filmed in the UAE over the summer.
OSN has officially launched the first episode of its highly anticipated OSN Original production, Yalla Neta’sha, which is the Arabic version of British reality TV show Come Dine With Me. The 45-episode Arabic language series will be aired every evening from Sunday to Thursday on OSN and the OSN streaming app.
The show brings contestants together from all walks of life and includes various nationalities such as Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Bahrain, Tunisia and Oman.
Narrated by Egyptian stand-up comedian Khalid Mansour, the programme will follow a different group of four strangers who take turns to each host a dinner party in their home, with the other guests rating the evening out of ten.
Each contestant believes that they are the ultimate host but at the end of the week, only one can be crowned the best host and walk away with a valuable prize. Each host will cook a starter dish, the main course and a dessert and followed by a grading session by the three guests of their hosting skills and the overall experience.
