Channel Nine’s new cooking show Snackmasters is slammed by viewers as ‘Australia’s longest running Hungry Jacks advert’










Channel Nine’s new cooking show, Snackmasters, debuted on Monday night.

Hosted by MasterChef star Poh Ling Yeow, the series sees Australia’s top chefs attempt to replicate some of the country’s most iconic snacks.

But viewers watching at home were disappointed with what they saw, with many comparing it to a long-running advertisement for burger chain Hungry Jacks.

One person tweeted: ‘How unbelievably low our standards have become for us to actually accept this as a legit program.’

Another added: ‘What the hell is this production rubbish, scripted, product placement shit.’

Someone else said it felt like watching: ‘Australia’s longest running advert for the Hungry Jacks’ and another added: ‘A giant advertising extravaganza.’

Yet another tweeted: “Snackmasters is probably the most excruciatingly cringeworthy show I’ve seen on the TV screen.

“It makes it look like a rerun of the Big Bang Theory on primetime SNL. We better all get free Hungry Jacks to match the absolute slop we’re looking at.

Someone else asked, “Do we really need that 1.5 hour commercial for Hungry Jacks?”

“If Kerry Packer was still alive he would have pulled that shitty Snackmasters show halfway through,” another viewer tweeted.

Others felt the show might not stay on the air for long, with one writing: “Chances are it will be on NineGo next week”.
