Masterchef Australia’s Julie Goodwin To Join The Today Show

The winner of Masterchef Australia, Julie Goodwin, continues to expand her media obligations with news she will be joining Channel Nine’s Today show.

Channel Nine state she will be doing a five minute cooking segment once a week.

She starts tomorrow by making pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. I will definitely be checking the segment out.

Nine MSN also say in the article that being on Masterchef Australia had put a strain on her marriage, but thankfully they have gotten through it.

It looks like CH10 have loosened their grip on the contestants. I would have thought that Julie would have been a good fix with Ch10 ‘The Circle’.

Didn’t they loosen their grip earlier when the POHster went on ABC?

Why hasn’t anyone offered Chris Bad-enuff a segment yet?

The marriage story came out on Valentines Day…talk about amateur PR. I don’t believe a word of it and couldn’t care less. And doesn’t it take some of the shine off Julie as the greatest wife/mother/cook image her sponsors want to project? Stupid all around unless it is defensive and some nasty Tiger-woods-type story is about to come out about Julie’s husband/marriage? Ha!

I too am surprised that MC is letting its “star” contestants sign up with other networks…then again, Ch10 doesn’t have a morning show per se but they do have the “David & Kim” show at 9am. Perhaps it is a tie-in with Women’s Weekly which has a historical relationship (Packer) with Ch9? Strange.

Perhaps Julie is not generating the returns for Ch10 or on any of her other endorsement deals. I see Woolies has an advert up talking about its “good food mums”…which comes across as a not-so-well veiled “take the piss” on Julie.
