As has been rumoured for some time, Australian Ninja Warrior looks set to do a MasterChef and relocate to Melbourne for 2019.
“Where we’ve been on Cockatoo Island, we’ve always had noise issues because water carries sound very well,” CEO Hugh Marks recently told the Herald Sun.
“We might need to find another location and we always envisaged (production) in Melbourne,” he added.
Sources say a location is yet to be finalised.
The Sydney production also entails accommodating its audience in overnight tents with shooting not wrapping until the early hours of the morning.
Season Three is already accepting registrations.
Seven’s Australian Spartan, which still has one more season in the can, was filmed in Brisbane.
