SKHUMBA | Pre-roast fear factor: 9/10
Hottest roast: To Gareth Cliff: “You know you are useless in life when you leave a show and no one cries. When you left Idols, no one… Not even Unathi.” Coldest shade: “I’m the face of McCafe: happy, bright, exciting. And DSTV. You have OLX. Ugly, old, difficult to sell.” Somizi Post-roast rating: 10/10
JOANNE JOSEPH | Pre-roast fear factor: 6/10
Hottest roast: “Somizi, I love you but you were really crap in Sarafina when you tried to play that straight guy.” Coldest shade: “Joanne, you went from a national TV station to a regional radio station – your career is in reverse.

SCHALK BEZUIDENHOUT |. Pre-roast fear factor: 6/10
Hottest roast: “I’m very sad that you’re no longer single. The last time I had sex with someone as beautiful as you was when I was f**king Maps Maponyane… You know the guilty smile he has on those Samsung ads? That’s because he exploded harder than the Galaxy Note 7.”
Hottest roast [alternate, safer version]: “Gareth, I don’t understand how there’s so much hatred coming out of your mouth when so many men have put love inside it.”
Coldest shade: “Schalk, you look poor, like you’ve wasted your white privilege… We take one look at you and we know you don’t have the land.” Skhumba Post-roast rating: 8/10
