Masterchef: The Professionals – Rumour Is Marco Pierre White Will Host

A few weeks ago there was a rumour circulating that Heston Blummenthal might be the host of new show for TEN Masterchef: The Professionals.

However at the time Marco Pierre White’s name was also raised. It appears he might be the one getting the gig.

Great coup for Shine Australia and TEN as he was great as a guest judge on Masterchef Australia this year. He appeals to the ladies but also to male viewers as well and he does have a touch of the crazies about him.

Let’s hope this rumour is true.

Also food show fans might be interested in a a guest post for food blog Noodlies about Masterchef Australia and other food shows.

Masterchef: The Professionals hopefully on our screens on TEN in 2013.

I’m not certain about the day in, day out watchability of this guy.
I reckon he’s more of an okay-in-small-doses type.
The way the local production companies over-play everything they touch, Gangnam Style, there’s a real risk that he’ll just become an annoying, grumpy-looking Easter Island head who’s on our screens too many nights a week.
Shine, Freemantle and the others need to have a good look at Top Chef Masters.

Mmmmm Marco is my celebrity free pass so I’ll be watching for sure (his autobiography is very interesting reading). He’s delicious!

If he is the host for this show then I’m psyched!

Not a big fan of Heston Blummenthal..I know he does weird and wonderful things with food but it’s just not my scene.
