For the next Junior Master Chef I think the rules of the competition need to be overhauled to provide a level playing field for finalists (particularly) and semi finalists. I do not a believe level playing field was provided in the last competition. Surely semi finals and grand finals should be won totally on ability. However what we saw last time was family suggestions from the bleaches and corrections and leg ups by the judges when the eventual winner was heading for disasters. The eventual runner up only received a fraction of the expert assistance given to the winner and clearly did not need the same level of assistance. I believe that absolutely no help should be given to any contestants in the final series so the best Junior Master Chef would win and not the competitor who receives the most help.

I think in the age group of the first Junior M/chef in Australia, it is good that the kids get some support if needed throughout the competition, even up til the end. It was great to see the presenters giving the occasional helping hand or bit of advice. After all, they are only kids and the stress level for anyone, whatever the age, in those circumstances,l must be enormous. The level of support given seemed to me to be very even between the contestants. However, if they have a 'Teen M/chef' it should be with no help because some of the older ones could even be apprenticed by that age.
