    I don't see any problem with the ad, it seems very tongue in cheek to me (which is kind of pointing out how these stereotypes are ridiculous and over the top). I'll be watching the show, I enjoyed last season of Master Chef and I'll be interested to see how this goes

    Edit: at least there's no crystal stickers or anything to be seen there.

    Yes, the ad is quite tongue in cheek, but it's not because it's trying to point out how ridiculous the stereotypes are...it's because they're trying to make sexism appear casual and funny (which it isn't) to create hype for the theme of the series. Why would they want to point out how ridiculous the stereotypes are when it's what they're trying to sell- gender stereotypes pinned against each other so one will reign superiority over the other?

    I don't see how it can be males v females anyway. It's ultimately an individual competition. Each series has had just one winner. You can't say females won series one or males won series two, The same way you wouldn't say brunettes won season one and Asians won season two.

    Hmm I guess because if they were saying the sexes arn't equal then the competition would be pretty pointless. I've never noticed any gender bias in the actual show (that I've seen, I will admit I haven't seen that much of it lol).

    The three male judges?
    I did read something about the Professionals season, apparently female chefs were most often relegated to desserts despite them not specializing in this area while the men took care of the mains. I didn't watch it all so I'm not overly sure about the circumstances there.

    I really don't think any amount of stickers could help in that case!!
