Masterchef Australia Rip Off?? – Did Masterchef Steal Challenge Ideas
Ok on The Morning Show there was a story about Suzee Dearlove claiming Masterchef ripping off her Seven Deadly Sins idea from her website for Sunday’s challenge. This was a follow on from the story that was on Today Tonight last night.
Personally I don’t think they did, as I said on the show I think it was taken from Top Chef Season 2, which was closer to the challenge then her YouTube clip link here.
I think there have been a lot of challenges taken from Top Chef eg the redoing of childhood classics, the wedding, and the army challenge. Also they have taken the classic scene from The Apprentice where they interview the person in the car after they have been eliminated.
However she probably believes they have. She said she put the video up on her website 10 weeks ago, I would suspect with the filming schedules that they would have already decided on a seven deadly sins challenge.
Fremantle Media says they got the idea from a brainstorming session.
Anyway if you want to check out her website it is www.mastercook.com.au
By the way if anyone thinks that reality TV is dying the first four stories on The Morning Show this morning were reality TV related.
