MasterChef Australia – Wrap Up
The only story in town is MasterChef Australia and here is a wrap up of what is being said and where:
Firstly I will spruik my own article on The Punch called Six Things I Learnt Watching MasterChef Australia. That is the advantage of being editor of my own blog!
Next the Editor of The Punch, David Penberthy has an article called MasterChef Australia – Best TV Show Ever
News.com.au has an article with Julie and Matt Preston saying MasterChef is NOT rigged, and that Julie won fair and square on the night. Also an article in the SMH where it is revealed Julie will write a monthly column for the Women’s Weekly.
TV Tonight also reveals that Poh has also got an offer to work with Luke Mangan in his restaurants in Japan and San Francisco.
Speaking of Poh, she is also in this Daily Telegraph article about her posing nude for an artist. Actually it is a fantastic portrait. Lucky girl. She says she is quite happy to have the pictures made public.
Woman’s Day hints that Julie is the Susan Boyle of the competition, because she did not want to be famous and had a near panic attack during a challenge on the show.
The SMH give their thoughts on why MasterChef Australia was so successful.
Ratings bonanza 3.74 million viewed the show and it peaked at 4.11 million said TV Tonight.
Channel Ten has reaped the reward of producing an unknown show and now have increased their clout in a tough advertising market says News.com.au
This is not a conclusive list I will continue to add to it. I also will continue to follow the careers of the contestants now the show has finished.
