Meet the Stars of New Series The Hotplate!
If we know anything in our jobs as entertainment writers, it's that Australia loves — like, loooves — a food-related show. My Restaurant Rules, MasterChef, My Kitchen Rules . . . You name it, we love it. So when news of new Channel Nine output The Hotplate made its way around, we knew we were probably in for another winner — and Monday night's 1.1 million viewers obviously agree.
The show is based on a simple premise: six suburban restaurants take turns hosting their competitors and one-by-one they're eliminated until one winning restaurant takes The Hotplate crown. The prize? $100,000 towards realising their foodie dreams. The restaurants are judged by chef Scott Pickett and restaurant critic Tom Parker Bowles, as well as their fellow competitors — ready to meet the teams? Scroll!
