  1. Be interesting to see the masterchefs ratings last year compared to last night. I doubt it would be anywhere near it.

    Bodyguard actually turned out to be a good series. Enjoyed the final ep last night.

    1. Catherine … I suspect that you may be right about MCA ratings. To check it out, Wikipedia have extensive pages on MCA breaking down each season and each episode with lots of info and data including average national ratings for each ep. Unfortunately, forum rules don’t allow me to include a link to an example MCA Wikipedia page. But a simple ‘Masterchef Australia wiki’ internet search should lead you to MCA data nirvana.

  2. Not looking good for House Rules, it usually lifts as it gets closer to the end, only one episode left though, they seem to have cut out the backyard portion of the renovations and skipped straight to the finale, very strange decisions this season.

    1. Doing the gardens always gave away the grand finalists, and made it easier for the couples to flip their house.

      And most likely this year,’s play off is cheaper as there isn”t so much interstate travel and contra deals are better with the nano house.
