TEN Launches Their 2013 Schedule And The Reality Is….
it looks like an exciting year for reality TV on TEN in 2013 with Masterchef Australia again headlining the reality genre for the Channel.
The fantastic news is Marco Pierre White will be hosting Masterchef:The Professionals with Matt Preston alongside him. So definitely a thinking woman’s crumpet cast!
George, Gary and Matthew are back for Masterchef to start filming in Melbourne next month. I would like to see an Asian judge there as well. Not just for knowledge of cuisines but also for different faces on screen. Channel Seven have found a ratings winner with Anh Do proving an Asian face can draw in the viewers and it would reflect the modern Australia.
The change in Melbourne will give Masterchef a whole new look and fresh feel which will be good.
The Biggest Loser – The Next Generation will see parents with their children competing to lose weight. this will be interesting in the context of the current debate on childhood obesity. Tiffany Hall won’t be back she is working on other personal projects. However, Hayley Lewis will be host and Michelle Bridges, Shannon Ponton and Commando are back. They are also going to use social media to take it to take the battle of obesity to the next level.
Recipe To Riches is a new food reality show where contestants turn their recipes into products on supermarket shelves. They have aligned with Woolworth’s. This will mean the episode winner product will be on the shelves the next day. Viewers vote via the supermarket by buying the products off the shelves.
TEN is bringing back American Idol fast tracking it from the US. Clearly new Idol Judge is the draw card. Also it is great show for the non ratings period during Summer. Previously Foxtel have fast tracked the show.
Finally good news for Barry Dubois fans The Living Room will be back next year.other shows returning are Can Of Worms, Bondi Vet and Bondi Rescue.
