Masterchef Australia 2013 [AU Pace - Spoilers]

Coming soon (probably in the next couple of weeks).

They're going back 10 years to the tired Reality TV cliché of boys vs. girls. The commenters on Facebook are not happy, with many declaring that they aren't watching due to it's sexist shift.

If the last few years are anything to go by, it should be on Watch in September.

Masterchef Australia 2013 (Girls Vs Boys? Ugh!)

Completely missed the UK version (and majority of the Australian Professionals version) this year.. but I have a real soft spot for the Oz version.

It's back in the next few weeks - and here's their quite controversial promo:



Not made a lot of fans very happy.. we can only hope the "girls vs boys" concept was simply for the advertisement and they're not changing up the format!

But the advertisement is more than a tad sexist..

I hate to do this to a mod, Basq - but I can't resist pointing out that there's already a thread for this:

No worries GHG.. I had a look down the first page of reality TV and didn't see anything.

Will merge now so.

You have to expect that they had a few weeks filmed when they did that promo. Hard to back out of it.

On the other hand, season 1-4 started at the end of April/early May. Hasty redo?

Thanks for keeping us posted, I love this programme. I think the standard of cookery is really high and they always have lots of new and exciting concepts to bring to the table, can't wait for it to start

We’ve all been hungry for the return of MasterChef Australia, and finally our TV tastebuds will be satisfied. Network TEN has announced that Series Five of the internationally adored show will return at 7.30 on Sunday June 2.
Here's another one of those advertisements that proves the "Men vs Women" angle is still on the cards..

Straight in, no auditions, top 22 at the start, no messing about.
And yup, boys vs. girls (but just for the first 2 weeks).

Here we go again!
