Sarah Wilson Still Not Signed for Season 2 Of MasterChef Australian
A Sunday Telegraph story says that MasterChef Australia host Sarah Wilson has still not been signed for the second series of MasterChef Australia nor is she going to host Celebrity MasterChef.
The three judges Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston will return for the celebrity series, but it was thought Sarah would be superfluous. Also the article states the judges have been signed for the second series.
The article quoted a Channel Ten spokeswoman:
She said the celebrity season format “does not allow for a host”.
“It’s just one hour a week and with the judges and celebrities, a host just doesn’t work in that format,” the spokeswoman said.
Throughout the series, television critics questioned Wilson’s contribution to the program.
However, if Wilson isn’t signed for a second series, it will be an extraordinary move, given the phenomenal ratings that the reality cooking show has enjoyed.
Polly in the comment section of this blog post gives some possible insight into why Sarah may not be re-signed.
