Put Up Your Hand If You Have Not Jumped On The MasterChef Bandwagon
Well my hand has to say well and truly down, as at the moment every second post on this blog seems to have some MasterChef Australia hook in it.
But it would also appear the other commercial stations want to jump on the MasterChef Australia bandwagon with Channel Seven appearing to be commissioning a cooking show.
The article on http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/story/0,28383,25851637-10229,00.html says:
A Seven executive is quoted as telling B&T Today that the network intends to have its own cooking program by the end of the year in direct competition with the show that was a ratings juggernaut for Ten.
“The Seven executive confirmed it will launch something competitive in the market that will present a challenge to Ten’s series one success,” the magazine reported online.
Also Channel Nine are also working on a cooking show called The Great Aussie Cook-Off.
Thankfully Arena TV will start screening Top Chef Master’s next Thursday 6 August at 7.30pm. Top Chef: Masters is an American reality competition show. In it, culinary professionals compete against each other in weekly challenges – a contrast from Top Chef, which features chefs that have been called relative “culinary amateurs”. MasterChef Australia took some aspects from this show for their challenges eg the wedding challenge.
