The beginning of the ratings of seasons and it is a time for new as well as old reality tv shows to make their way onto TV.

A new reality tv show that Channel 9 is trying out this year is The Chopping Block. It starts on February 6 at 7.30pm and stars Getaways Catriona Rowntree, and Aria chef Matt Moran.

The premise is that two restaurants compete against each. I think they take two struggling restaurants and try to turn them around. I am not sure what similarities it will have with Gordon Ramsey Kitchen nightmares. For further information the shows official website

Another show in pre production is Million Dollar Salon. The show will follow 12 people trying to run hair salons in cities across Australia with ultimate prize a million-dollar salon.

On of the judges will be high profile hairdresser Renya Xydis, who counts Nicole Kidman as one of her clientele.

In the Sun Herald she said “I’m looking for creative people, fun people and people who really want to make a dream happen,”

Auditions are being held at the Playhouse Theatre, Newcastle, tomorrow and the Seymour Centre in Chippendale on Wednesday.

So for once OZ came up with an original idea.
