Matt Preston To Unleash Himself On US TV

Well we gave the US Curtis Stone, now Matt Preston will be unleashing his cravats on the US.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Matt Preston will be appearing on an episode of US Masterchef. The US version is hosted by reality TV chef king Gordon Ramsay. It is huge exposure (no pun intended) for the food writer with the show rating 6 million an episode.

It will be interesting to see if this episode can see him expand into a career into the US. A guest judging spot on Top Chef Masters perhaps?

Succeed or fail, he can say he was big in the States.

is it a bit harsh to say…they can have him!!!

I didn’t mind him in the 1st season, but then he got a bit full of himself (or so it certainly appeared) and his waffle became pretentious and annoying….. IMO :)

For someone who’s always worn a cravat since the 80s, he’s always been prententious and annoying.

Wasn’t he signed up for Jenny Craig or something? I haven’t noticed any updates!

Yes, he was going to be a Jenny Craig poster boy. I’d assumed he was a colossal fail.

Your article doesn’t back you up davsimp (the article says that ten didn’t want Matt at Jennys, not that Jennys didn’t want him).

So, I don’t know what’s good ratings for a country of 240 million – is 6 million good in the US, or is that what the Macrame and Morris Dancing Shows also get?

AnonyMousse – 6 million is good as I think it is on pay tv.

AnonyMousse, I stand corrected. It was channel ten that didnt want him there.
