Just when you thought cooking shows couldn’t get any worse…

…or Channel 10 any more desperate, there was this.

It’s hard to know where to start. When I first saw this pop up in an ad break I sat through the whole thing with my mouth hanging open, in a state of mild shock.

As if we need more battles between sexes – there are enough of those already, without being slickly packaged in blue and pink. This kind of sexism takes people of all genders and neatly boxes them into suffocatingly tiny roles and then makes them hate each other for it. Nobody wins.

It’s hard to pick a favourite part of this gobsmacking tripe, but if I did it would have to be when one of the men delightedly reminds us that despite women doing most of the world’s cooking, men still hold the most prestigious chef’s jobs. DOESN’T THAT RING ANY ALARM BELLS, TEN?

A special mention to my favourite youtube comment (so far – I’m sure there will be many more):
