Ninja meets cooking? It’s been done already.

The success of Australian Ninja Warrior has prompted some readers to speculate how Seven and TEN might potentially respond.

My Kitchen Ninja? MasterChef Ninja?

Forget it. It’s already been done.

9GO! produced a kid’s show, Kitchen Whiz, some years ago with performer Andy Trieu as a Kitchen Ninja.

These days Trieu is busy as the effervescent host of SBS PopAsia.

And then of course there is Iron Chef, which Seven adapted into the short-lived Iron Chef Australia from Shine Australia, the same company behind Australian Ninja Warrior as Endemol Shine.

The more TV changes, the more it stays the same…..?


  1. If it is on Seven it will be called My Samurai Rules & will be hosted by Johanna Griggs & Manu with appearances by actors & personalities from shows like Home & Away

  2. Cutthroat Kitchen Australia! For the uninitiated, it’s on SBS Food Network. Involves contestants spending their potential winnings on limitations for the other contestants. Mix of pro-chefs and home cooks.

    That also means potentially doing Camp Cutthroat (and even zanier version where contestants must also complete an obstacle course and cook outside)

    • this suggestion (Cutthroat Kitchen Australia) excites me and terrifies me at the same time. We would screw it up worse than Iron Chef Australia (yuck!).

    I’m waiting to watch this new style of Reality tv.
    It’s basically a team of feisty singles looking for love, who have to build a Ninja Course that resembles a giant red rose and when they reach the top, cook a mystery box of bizarre ingredients and once they have done thatthe teams are then paired into couples and married off to live happily ever after on a farm.

        • And their struggling neighbours complain about their bogan behaviour whilst the wives are on archeological sites “digging for Oz” looking for Yummy Mummies and their hubbies are driving trucks across the frozen Lake Burley Griffin heading for the Nation Building Authority in Dreamland with a deadline of 12:40pm.
          Meanwhile, Uncle Bruce has limbered up, sharpened his knives, covered himself in oil and is ready to venture out into the sun to cook the world’s largest pavlova in the world’s largest solar oven.
