It's going to be a lovefest.

3 really nice people.. ughhh.. kill me now..

Sorry but they needed someone with some real presence, like a Gordon Ramsay or Marco Pierre White.

Don't like the Poh selection or Maggie Beer.. Maggie is great in small doses.

Let the supervisors quit, find new supervisors.. need a good cop/bad cop combo.

Moran and Curtis would have been great.
Then throw in a female judge to appease the feminists.
Moran is ******* horrible. I have edited two shows with that guy. Endemolshine won't want him and neither will channel 10.

And yes, a female judge would appease me.

Of course not. But it wouldn't be a problem if there were.
If they are actually entertaining...Poh is good in small doses, but meh sorry not a fan of a whole season of Maggie..they had a Maggie Beer week one year and that was bad enough personally.

If they wanted a female celeb judge Nigella would have been better

just don't think Poh has enough "cred" to be a judge.

Both Nigella and Maggie are on par for me. Both have a shit tonne of cred but both struggle to string sentences together.

But their gender shouldn't be an issue anyway. Let them get it on their merit.

And that includes Poh. I'm not a fan of her. She doesn't tick enough boxes.

Male or female don’t care. What I do care about is charisma. Some have it, some don’t. Curtis does, good selection. The other two I’m far from convinced.

Also all 3 struggle to give any criticism at all which means it will be all lovey dovey which by week 3 will be boring!

They will get told by the producers to give bad points for every meal they taste. Up to us to include it or not. I can guarantee you if they become full time judges, they will be judgy.

Why not these female chefs?

Alla Wolf-Tasker (Lake House)

Kylie Kwong

Natasha Burnett

Angela Hartnett - (British). Worked with Gordon Ramsey on Hell's Kitchen. Thought she was pretty good on the Great British Chefs show.

That ilk is what you're looking for, absolutely. I still need to eat at Lake House....

Apparently George, Gary and Matt are going pitch some sort of show to Amazon and Netflix

George Calombaris, Gary Mehigan and Matt Preston won’t waste any time exploring their next small screen endeavours together.

A day after abruptly exiting reality television juggernaut MasterChef Australia, the three are preparing to develop new concepts under the banner of their own production company GGM, which they will pitch to streaming service giants Netflix and Amazon.

I honestly think the exact opposite - the reason the show has such broad appeal is they aren't campaigners and the show (while cheesy and emotionally manipulative) is constructive and nice as a rule.

Bring the hard-arses in for guest spots to shake everything up.

Imagine Matt leaving means Marco is now back on the table for appearances though.

There's too many of them, and Matt doesn't hold a candle to Padma (Top Chef US) or Eden (Top Chef Canada) in terms of looks or presentation skills, and he barely has better credentials than only one of the two

Oh so there is a Top Chef show. Was a dig at Top Gear and those three taking off for a new show
