No MKR – Spartan starts tonight

There’s no My Kitchen Rules tonight as Seven is premiering Spartan – aka Ninja Warrior with teams.
It screens from 7-8.30pm.
MKR is back tomorrow for the elimination, where Group 1 judges the bottom two teams from Group 2. Which means Roula and Rachel will be back on screen. Erk.

Format change this year. I guess to keep Gp 1 in longer.

After surprise elimination on Tue, we only get one team from Gp1 and Gp 2(base on worst performer in Group team challenge) to have a cook off.


I’m actually looking forward to the Spartan show tonight. Hopefully it has an ending that’s actually achievable, because lord knows, the ninja-show was a disappointment.


At least the hosts are much better than Ninja Warriors. Not shouting on top of their voices


Holy stud muffins, the Shark Squad. The leader seems like he’s on drugs. Like, he’s operating at about a 400, and we need him down to about a 7 or so.


very very very very very poor imitation of American Ninja Warrior


I never watch those ninja/wipeout type shows. Although I saw It’s a Knockout a lot as a kid


There were a lot less contestants through, but I actually liked it as much as, if not moreso, than Ninja Warrior. I mean, same basic thing, but the elements of team-work made the challenges more interesting.


Almost a clone of Ninja Warrior, but they have hit the money (probably literally) with the hosts. I couldn’t watch NJ because of the shouty woman and her pal, but these two, plus a very genuine teddy-bear-like Wendell Sailor were perfect.

As in the other show I would like a little less back story and more of the actual runs, but it is a minor quibble. I am hooked. See you next week, Hamish and Edwina.


I could take or leave Wendell Sailor, to be honest. I suspect he’s just there because the other show had a cricketer as a sideline commentator? But agreed with you about the hosts, they were much more pleasant.
