Experienced fisherman Billy Stanley excels in episode two of Ultimate Braai Master.
The Muisbosskerm challenge in Lambert’s Bay gave Billy Stanley (Stoned Olives) the perfect opportunity to show off his prowess when it comes to food harvested from the sea.
It was in fact a picture of Justin Bonello holding a ‘geelbek’ that inspired Billy and his partner Ronel Theron to enter Ultimate Braai Master.
Ultimate Braai Master Judge Bertus Basson was very impressed with Billy and commented on how well he was filleting the fresh fish compared to the other less experienced competitors.
He said, “Look how smooth and beautiful he took the hake off the bone.”
“Look how clean the bone is, you can see he’s done this a few times before and he’s used to working with gentle fish like hake.”
Despite Billy and Laertes best efforts the two teams tied for a draw.
The two team leaders, Laertes and Oscar had to pick their most invaluable team member, Laertes naturally picked Billy while Oscar chose Warwick Thomas (Fat Cow).
They were exempt from the elimination challenge that followed the next day which saw Popeye and Olive eliminated from the competition.
