Rough or Smooth

Rough or Smooth, is an adventurous and sophisticated travel series with a strong food and lifestyle focus. Playful and quirky, yet always honest and well researched – pairing two opposing personalities who just somehow get on and explore our world together…

TV personalities and old friends, Paul du Toit and Terence Bridgett guide audiences on a journey to some of the most remarkable and eclectic places and show the very different sides to the same destinations. They are both passionate about food, travel and the people and places of Southern Africa, but they live out this shared passion in very different ways.

Paul is rough; happiest with barbecue smoke in his eyes and a freshly dived crayfish steaming in kelp. Terence however, as befits the doyenne of the social pages, is smooth, preferring his crustacean served with the requisite Sauvignon Blanc. While Paul has climbed Kilimanjaro, and surfed, dived and canoed all over the world, for Terence, boutique hotels, back massages, haute couture and fine dining are more his cup of Earl Grey.

Paul drags a reluctant Terence through the rough experience while Terence nudges an under-dressed Paul though the finer options available in the same places. They spear mullet in the Kosi Bay fish traps, ski in the Maluti Mountains, drink wine on one of South Africa’s oldest estates, eat cow’s head ‘Soweto style’ and reveal their personal stories as they sing with the Drakensberg Boys Choir and complete the Dusi Canoe Marathon.
