Episode 1: The Eco Challenge 
This week’s challenge started with Zoe and Ewan putting their driving skills to the test in the ultimate car challenge: The Paralell Park! 

Zoe started out strong, but with a busy road creating some obstacles, she had quite a bit of maneuvering to do, taking up some unnecessary time! Ewan took the liberty of a quiet JHB street, enabling him to finish the challenge in a much quicker time! But did Zoe let this dent her confidence? Absolutely not!

Arriving at the Bean There Café - South Africa’s first roaster of Certified Fairtrade coffee - Zoe walked in to a great surprise at the Wale Street, Cape Town branch where Expresso Chef, Zola Nene ready to greet her!

To Ewan’s delight Casper de Vries was waiting to surprise superman at Bean There Café, 44 Stanley in Johannesburg,

The two teams grabbed their 100% compostable coffee cups and their next clue and jumped into the EcoSport to drive to their next location, where their wits were put to the test in the next mission: Artfully prune a bonsai!

Debbie from Bishopsford Bonsai, the biggest Bonsai Nursery in the Western Cape, situated in the picturesque Nova Constantia, gave the girls a five star crash course in how to artfully prune a Bonsai, while Jonathan from The Bonsai Shop in Midrand handed the guys plenty of helpful tips and tricks and the tools to try and beat the girls! Lucky for the two teams their Bonsai Masters had all the experience (and patience) in the world, making it a very tough call!

But in the end only one team could win, and if Casper hadn’t tried to cut their Bonsai clean, maybe the boys would have taken first prize for their Bonsai! But attention to detail won the girls the Bonsai challenge!

After lots of laughs, hard work and fun, the scores tallied to:

Ewan: 45 and Zoe: 40

With plenty of challenges still to come – who will be the ultimate winner? Only time will tell...
