A Plate of Origin problem

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.


  1. So Seven still think MKR is a viable name or are they just trying to cash in on Matt & Gary being in a show with MKR in the titkke so they can sell it to India & all the other 100 or os countries where MasterChef is a hit?
    Matt has been very vocal about not hosting MKR so this could put POO injeopardy
