DStv Compact has the crowns and the cash with high rolling Cape

Prepare to throw down, DStv Compact viewers. This June we’re talking money, we’re talking millions. Gordon Ramsay is waving around nearly R3 million in Gordon Ramsay's Future Food Stars Season 1, Thato Moeng & Skhumba Hlophe have him beaten with R3,5 million in The Saturday Showdown Season 1, but they all have to step aside when the Listing Cape Town Season 1 agents roll up with numbers like R280 million. And there are more property millions being thrown around in Carl Weber's The Black Hamptons Season 1. The result? Priceless viewing.

Plus, we’re talking luxe, and we’re talking crowns on DStv Compact this June, with royal doccies, news and coverage of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee from Thursday, 2 June to Sunday, 5 June. Heading the DStv VIP list, we have crowned King Of Crunk himself, Lil Jon, whose design show Lil Jon Wants To Do What? Season 1 already reigns over our hearts. We will be crowning more winners at the DStv Mzansi Viewers' Choice Awards (The DStvMVCAs), and the big mid-year awards are here, too. Read on and save the date for the MTV Movie & TV Awards and the BET Awards.

Lil John Wants To Do What (10)
Lil Jon Wants To Do What? Season 1

We have had it with basic grey and white minimalism. Officially. Thankfully rapper Lil Jon’s home reno show really is fresh as paint. Expect colour and creative design “from the window to the walls”, as Lil Jon joins forces with Anitra Mecadon to break their clients out of that design rut. “When people hear my name, they automatically think… fun! That same energy goes for my designs as well. I don’t love following design trends – I would rather be the trendsetter,” says Lil Jon.

Watch Lil Jon Wants To Do What? Season 1 from Wednesday, 29 June at 22:00 on HGTV (DStv Channel 177)

Gordon Ramsay's Future Food Stars
Gordon Ramsay's Future Food Stars Season 1

Gordon Ramsay is in full Satan mode as he turns up the heat under 12 entrepreneurs who think they can crack it in the restaurant business. Gordon is fronting £150,000 (R2,967,799) as an investment so he’s in a picky, picky mood. Contestants will have to run beach shacks at the balmy, idyllic British seaside, forage for ingredients outdoors like a seagull, and face whatever tests of their nerve action man Gordon can devise. RIP, contestants.

Carl+Weber's+The+Black+Hamptons+Cast
Carl Weber's The Black Hamptons Season 1

Pass the prosecco, babes, this is going to be good! This 4-part BET original drama series based on Carl Weber’s best-selling novel of the same name pits 2 Sag Harbor families against one another. The old-money Brittons (including Vanessa Bell Caloway as matriarch Carolyn Britton) and the upstart Johnsons (headed by Lamman Rucker as CEO Anthony Johnson), who made their fortune in a tech start-up, both have their eyes on a new piece of property up for grabs. Compromise is for cowards, and these black diamonds can cut throats as easily as they cut glass.

Listing Cape Town
Listing Cape Town Season 1

Fancy a farm in Franschhoek? How about a luxury pad in Camps Bay, or a vintage mansion in Bishopscourt? Five of Cape Town’s most high-powered estate agents – Armel Ciamala (LAW), Farrah Mia (live), Jodi Smith (Remax), Renee James (Chas Everitt) and Saadiq Effendi (LIONLEAD) – are here to show you around the larniest properties on their books, ranging from a steal at just R15 million, to a slightly more spendy R280 million home. But if you’re platsak, it costs nothing to look, thanks to the magic of TV.
