I agree but the dogs make me cry and Rebel's smutty humour agrees with me and it is a pleasant change from the disturbing MAFS and MKR.

DD who is 6 has been very patiently waiting after months of promos. She was so excited for the first episode.

I am not a dog person, but more so not a Rebel person. I don't find her funny at all, not one bit. She grinds my gears. lol

She might be lovely but her on screen persona does nothing for me.

I thought I was the only one, re Rebel, not dogs.  Have never found her remotely funny and would actively avoid watching anything with her in a central role.

I started watching it but the opening spiel of hers was just cringey and full of fake laughter so I gave up.

I love dogs, but loathe Rebel. I'm not watching it because of her.

Loved the dogs (as a crazy dog lady) but not Rebel.  She’s so awkward it’s cringey.

Rebel is an acquired taste.
Clearly she is very popular as proven by her success.

Aussies tend to dislike her more than anyone else but that is not unusual when it comes to Aussies in Hollywood.

#17 Chocolate Addict

lol I disliked her long before she became a Hollywood fave. ;)

Plenty of much funnier Australian female comedians out there.

I tolerated it for my 8 year old, who rarely asks to watch something not a cartoon.

Just watched it on catch up .

I liked it , bit of fluff lol.

There was a Havanese on it which was nice to see .

i think as competition though it’s not really fair . Some dogs are going to be harder to work on than others .

like in the elimination round a rough haired jack Russel is rather limiting compared to a Maltese. You have much more coat to work with and be inventive with And the groomers of the one eyed dog got brownie points for being gentle , well duh .

I think it would be more ‘fun’ if their was less prize money .

my favourite show like this is the Great Australian bake off because there  is no real animosity between the competitors because the prize is very small . They are all generally really lovely to each other .

i think it would be better if this was like that . Keep it fun .

all the stress and panicking can’t be nice for the dogs either . They would sense it and not understand it .

Rebel doesn’t bother me . A host with lame jokes . What’s new ?

I disliked her before she became big. And it has nothing to do with being Australian. I love Chris Hemsworth for example and he's an Aussie.

My daughter love is - we watch on catch up.

I think it rather boring, but she is amused so I have less of an adverse reaction than, say, DH, who can be heard swearing and ranting about it from several rooms away.

But he swears and rants less than the new BHG format, so at least she has something to watch.

I didn't really like it. I tried.

I actually do like Rebel but didn't think her humour was suited for this show.

Some of those dogs looked worse after! 😂😂

But for a bit of light hearted fun it was ok I guess..

I think her humour is what saved it for me. Too prim and proper or sickly sweet and I couldn't watch, her bit of smut saves it lol

Some of the poor dogs
I've caught my cat staring at the tv when it's on, I think she was thinking the same
