        Excellent. For a British take on this concept, try "Posh Nosh":

            I LOVE the Supersizers! Are they still on the Cooking Channel?

            I like the idea of the skit, but it didn't come together for me. Seems it's not aimed at foodies, but rather at the people who love to hate them. I wasn't expecting Ted Allen to be a great actor, but his performance did not help any. I had a little chuckle, but it's pretty forgettable.

            Posh Nosh, mentioned by Miss Priss above, does this a lot better.

              Posh Nosh is Classic.

              "Joy of Sets" also does a good rip on Masterchef (though you have to familiar with the AUS version)

                I did not think it possible to be more in love with Ted Allen than I already was. Thanks for sharing this one.
