Masterchef Australia will kick off on Sunday June 2 at 7.30pm going and then will continue Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
On week two the Masterclass episode will be on the Thursday night.
There is no top 50 this year and the season will kick off with a top 22 with the Herald Sun reporting the first challenge will be at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Expect to see Curtis Stone, Stephanie Alexander, Shannon Bennett, Maggie Beer and Antonio Carluccio all make appearances.
The theme this year appears to be boy versus girls and as discussed in a previous blog post Masterchef might be going down My Kitchen Rules path and trying to bring out the bitchy.
The Herald Sun also speculates that Masterchef will be going head to head against the popular shows like The Voice and The Block, however I think there it will do just fine.
Masterchef Australia premieres on Sunday 2 June on TEN at 7.30pm.

Big Kev has been taken to hospital in Sydney with an irregular heart. News.com.au is reporting this occurred whilst a segment of him training was being recorded for The Biggest Loser. It will be interesting to see how much weight him and his mum Rosemary have lost since being eliminated as you got the feeling neither were fully committed to the life style change.
Maybe they need to go to the new The Biggest Loser retreat up at the Golden Door Health Retreat on the Gold Coast. Don’t expect Commando to be carrying your bags or standing over you while you do push ups but do expect a diet and exercise regieme. They are recommending a minimum three week stay and at $342 a day it is not cheap however it could be a good way to lose some weight without the usual temptations around. (Source: News.com.au)
Michelle Bridges has also been talking again about whether she is or isn’t dating Commando, and there will be an interview in Who Magazine. However Daily Telegraph is reporting she is still not confirming the romance.

If you laughed when I watched the clip above from Killer Karaoke the super trashy tv show you will be pleased to know it is coming to the Comedy Channel on June 9.
The show is where contestants sing whilst weird things happen to them like getting zapped like above or being dunked in a tub of water full of snakes.
Sure it is low end reality TV but it does not pretend to be anything else.
It is hosted by Steve-O who is from Jackass and Dee Snider from Twisted Sister is the announcer.
Killer Karaoke starts on Comedy Channel starts on Sunday June 9 at 7.30pm

With the latest season of the new season of So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) kicking off in America there are rumours now circulating that Network Ten might be considering renewing the Australian version of the show. I am hoping this turns out to be true.
TV Tonight is saying there are rumours that it might be back on TEN in 2014. This is would be a good decision by TEN as there are no other dance shows on free to air and it was a popular show. One of the reasons it did not rate so well in its last season was it kept on getting shifted around on the programming schedule.
Even though TEN flirted and lost with the disasterous Everybody Dance Now the issue was not the calibre of dancing it was the format and the cast. US judges Kelly Rowland and Jason DeRulo did not manage to engage the audience and looked like they were there just to collect the pay cheque.
The format of So You Think You Can Dance allows the viewer to get to know the dancers their stories, their styles and personalities which means we are able make an emotional connection with them and cheer for them week to week.
Have a judging panel of two staple judges like Matt Lee and Kelly Abbey and rotate a different judge through weekly. Give sassy Natalie Goronzi the hosting gig and add in some great routines and people will watch.
Also it is rumoured ELEVEN will start screening the US version of SYTYCD soon.
TV Tonight also states that TEN is considering theIrish series The Hit where emerging songwriters compete for recording artists to choose their song to record. Brian McFadden is in that show, so if there is an Australian version I hope TEN won’t sign him up.
So You Think You Can Dance Australia hopefully on TEN in 2014.
