Sarah Wilson Dumped From MasterChef Australia – Oh And So Has Steve Bisley
Host of MasterChef Australia, Sarah Wilson, will be a one season wonder as Channel Ten and Fremantle Media announced today that there would be no host for Season two of the popular reality TV show.
Network Ten, chief programming officer, David Mott said, “Sarah Wilson has been an invaluable member of the MasterChef Australia team and she will be missed.”
“This decision has been a hard one to make but it became clear the appropriate role for Sarah was not achievable without dramatically changing the format.”
“Sarah has an impressive background with abilities that far outweighed her duties on the show. All parties agree another series that limited her input and expertise was not the best outcome.”
Sarah is currently considering another television project, the details of which she will announce shortly.
I don’t think anyone would disagree that she was underutilised and far too scripted.
Channel Ten’s Publicity department has been working overtime this week trying to turn shit stories into gold. One of them was the news that one of their “celebs” from Celebrity MasterChef, Steve Bisley had been charged with assaulting his ex-wife.
Ten quickly cut the cord and excised him from the show but said it was due to a “scheduling conflict” because of a series he was doing with the ABC. An ABC spokesperson said this was a load of bollocks. (Source Daily Telegraph)
I mean seriously why can’t they just come out and say this is a family friendly show, and we don’t think it is appropriate that someone up on domestic violence charges is a part of it. That is not so hard is it?
