Masterchef Australia Hugely Popular In India
Masterchef Australia is seen by more eyeballs in India than it is in Australia. WAToday states over three million people can watch each episode and the judges are superstars. Interestingly when it is screening in India – five per cent of my readers are from there. It will be interesting to see if George Calombaris extends his food empire to the sub-continent. If he is smart he will.
Also the contestants should get over there and try and extend their 15 minutes by doing cooking exhibitions and pushing products and endorsements.
It is no surprise they are looking at fast tracking the next series to India. However no word on whether Masterchef: The Professionals will be shown over there.
Masterchef: The Professionals this Sunday is another re-invention test and as you can see from the promo above they have to razzle up the Sunday Roast. Also on Monday it looks like they are copying Top Chef and doing a Quickfire challenge. By the way copying Top Chef is not a negative thing. You get the feeling Tracey and Akuc may be in trouble next week.
Masterchef: The Professionals on Sunday to Tuesday on TEN at 7.30pm.
