Seven has a new food competition series, Aussie BBQ Heroes, coming over summer.
News Corp reports the series will feature Surfing The Menu’s Ben O’Donoghue as host and judge plus ex-My Kitchen Rules contestant, US-born Robert Murphy and US-based Australian Barbecue Alliance co-founder Jess Pryles as judges.
Nine teams will compete for more than $100,000 in prize money.
It isn’t clear if any of the show is brand-funded. O’Donoghue (pictured) has hosted Drive Thru Australia with Ben O’Donoghue, sponsored by Heat Beads BBQ Briquettes on Seven network.
With My Kitchen Rules expected in February, there won’t be much break -aside from now- from food competitions on Free to Air TV.
Meanwhile the newspaper also speculates TEN may revive Junior MasterChef for 2016.
