    Lol good point about the judges, but they often had female guests come in to help judge I didn't notice the dessert thing, it depended in the team captain most of the time (I know Sarah decided to do the dessert for the finale herself).
    I might just be blind to that kind of thing though. I don't notice because to me women are no less capable than men and vise versa I kind of assume everyone else feels that way too (sexists really shock me lol, I just don't expect it, it seems so ridiculous lol).

    I must be living under a rock. I have never seen the ads you are referring to and had no idea, until this thread, that Masterchef was doing another season.

    Hmm, off to watch Channel 10 tonight to see these ads.

    Ummmm.......I think you're missing the point. This is regarding the ad for the new series which will have the theme of men v women. The issue is not about gender biased as much as it is sexism. It's stupid and demeaning to both sexes.

    I personally think men *generally* make better chefs/cooks because alot of men *generally* are fussier with food. They want it to taste amazing where as most women *generally* have the goal of just feeding their family a good meal. Women want the bellies full and men want the org@sm in the mouth experience.....*generally*

    I disagree. I'm a way better, and fussier, cook than my husband. But I can honestly say that that has nothing to do with my gender and everything to do with my love of good food vs his more blasé approach.

    No I'm not, I said I found the ad very tongue in cheek (which I think points out how ridiculous stereotyping is) . I mentioned I didn't notice gender bias in previous seasons in a follow up post.
