I am in the same dilemma, not really feeling MC from what I've watched so far so might give MKR a go.

Can't wait for the Block to start next week!

I am watching Masterchef....I love Zumbo and I think there may be some good woopsies...plus I am not a fan on MKR...I already want to punch my tv because of a few contestants from the ads.

It's Zumbo! Watch people do bad things to good cakes.

I am so excited I let out a squeal! I prefer it to Masterchef but mostly because I love Dinner Parties biggrin.gif

I also may or may not have (I did) download the app for the recipes.

I am not looking forward to my cravings this season wink.gif I may have to indulge a few!

I used to love Masterchef but couldn't bring myself to watch last season so definitely MKR

But to be helpful to the OP, check the TV guide, pretty sure I saw replays of MC on channel eleven during the day, so might be an option for seeing both if your home at the right time.

Get a TIVO. You can then tape season passes to both of them. Watching MKR tonight and taping MC.

I have been watching MC the next day on the channel 10 website - no ads, no 'after the break' promos - it's great!

OP you are a life saver!!!!

I love, love, love MKR and forgot to set the timer for it, phew just did.

Without a doubt I would choose MKR over Masterchef and day.

MKR tonight followed by MC that is being recorded BUT there are some horrible couples this year!

#21 RainyDays

We prefer MKR.

I watched Masterchef because I love it and I'm a massive Zumbo fan, then switched over to MKR which I've never watched before.
It wasn't hard to get the gist of it. I'm glad I watched MC though, tonight was brilliant in all it's cake-hell b**chiness.

I've never watched MKR, but I chose it tonight because of the cupcake girls in the ads.  Then they didn't feature so I'm a bit confused  although the ladies who don't like vegetables, or chocolate, or orange were good value.

Channel 11 replays all three nights of MC on Saturday nights, so I'll catch those then.  And I don't like Zumbo, which tipped it for me.
