The Contender To Premier On Fox 8 on November 2


I have never been a fan of boxing nor have I seen the overseas version of The Contender, a reality TV show about boxing. However the Australian version, hosted by Charlotte Dawson starts on November 2 on Fox 8. Charlotte who is a highly entertaining judge on Australia’s Next Top Model should be a very capable host of the show which is based on a masculine theme.

What I would like to know is this reality TV show for blokes or will girls watch it because there will be buffed bodies on screen? I will be doing recaps on the show here.

Also in Foxtel news:

  • Project Runway Australia will have a third season;
  • Australia’s Next Top Model will start filming early next year; and
  • Lifestyle channel will have episodes of the show Come Dine With Me;
  • Apparently there will be an Australian version made of the show Shear Genius, this was going to be made this year but was delayed; and
  • Ruby Rose will host an Australian version of Fame – The Ultimate High School Musical.

Happy to hear that there will be a seaon three of Project Runway Australia. Yippee!

The Contender. Umm, no thanks. I am not interested and think it is strange Charlotte Dawson is hosting this – maybe to get females to watch?

“Come Dine with Me” is already on Foxtel…not sure what channel. Is there going to be an Aussie version or are you just referring to the UK one already shown here?
