  1. I flicked over to POO after The Block and found they gave Matt, Gary and Manu too much air time sitting around offering idle conjecture which brought nothing to the table.

    So of course to offset that expensive mistake in luring the Masterchef judges, Seven fired a whole lot of hard working staff.
