Zumbo’s Just Desserts, which Seven flogged like a dead profiterole during the Olympics, is losing viewers as The Block continues to pull strong numbers.

I had planned to recap Zumbo but I found myself surfing the net for much of the premiere as everything just took so darn long and, yet again, some contestants seem to be on it because they wanted to be famous rather than having a passion for cooking.

I like Rachel Khoo but she’s absolutely wasted on this show and Zumbo seems a nice bloke but he doesn’t have the charisma for TV. The outgoing Anna Polyviou (who created the smash death star dessert on the latest MasterChef) would be a much better choice but perhaps she’s contracted to Ten..
I wish an Australian channel would pick up the new season of Great British Bake Off to show everyone how it’s done.
Just Desserts is on Seven tonight from 7.30pm-8.50pm (sooo long!!). The blurb says: Using chocolate, the remaining dessert makers must produce their most swoon-worthy creation. The two weakest will head straight to the Zumbo Test, where a truly monumental challenge awaits them.
