    I think I won't watch it on principle!

    I reckon the show won't be nearly as bad as the adverts.

    It is true that top chefs are usually men. So annoying! Same with hairdressers.

    Meh..it's light hearted entertainment. I haven't read anything into the ads. Doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    And I'm sorry, I highly doubt the average woman makes 1000 meals a year. In what planet?!

    Yeah cause we all stay at home and make breakfast, lunch and dinner and our husbands never cook a thing.

    I'll still watch it though as I liked the other seasons.

    Meh.

    It's sexist, but not in a nasty way. It's in a bit of a naff, silly way to make people aware the "theme" of the show will be men VS women. It has it's cutesy music and little man/woman cliches... I don't find it offensive in the least. I think it's a pretty stupid advert, but I find it harmless.

    This is a pretty eloquent article on the subject- a quick google shows plenty of international reporting on it too.
