Australia’s Next Top Model Severs Ties With Vogue Australia

A new host is not the only change of this season’s Australia’s Next Top Model, as Harper’s Bazaar and Cosmopolitan will take over from Vogue Australia as the magazine represented in the show. The Sunday Tele gossip column (scroll down the article) states the split could have occurred because they did not put Demelza Reveley last year’s winner on the cover as they did with Alice Burdeau. However I think this is bollocks as Alice was the first winner ever to be put on the cover and there was never any expectation that other winners would get this honour.

Head Judge For Interior Design Show Home Made Announced.

Belle magazine editor-in-chief Neale Whitaker has joined the team on Nine’s lifestyle reality series Home Made. It is thought his role will be as head judge. Similar to that of Johnathan Adler of Arena’s Top Design. Sorry I should not have mentioned those shows in the same post as apparently they are going to be completely different. Each show is about interior designers competing to design different spaces and a designer is eliminated each week.

The producers Julian Cress and David Barbour of The Block fame, look like they are on a winner with this show. Also they always have high production values. David Heimann, proprietor of Orson & Blake will be the host.

Masterchef Australia – Another Melbourne Chef/Judge Announced.

As a Sydneysider I am about to crawl into a dark corner and curl into the feotal position with shame. Matt Preston a chef from Melbourne has been announced as the third judge to join the other two chefs from Melbourne Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris. Just a minor snipe why no female judge? Are there no good female televisual chefs in Australia?

The show is currently in pre-production and carrying out auditions throughout Australia.
