Yikes… there’s some speculation that the name Plate of Origin has already been -ahem- dumped due to an awkward acronym: POO.
The Australian reports Kurt Burnette, Seven’s chief revenue officer, admitted he had already made his executives aware of the unfortunate “POO” acronym.
Also aligned to the name is MKR, with suggestions Seven has been marketing it to advertisers as My Kitchen Rules: Plate of Origin. That’s despite Matt Preston insisting he would not be co-hosting MKR for Seven.
Produced by Seven Studios, Plate of Origin was announced two weeks ago with Preston, Gary Mehigan and Manu Feildel in a battle of international cuisines.
