“Obviously there’s a little bit of similarity in that they are amateur cooks but the difference is we don’t give them challenges,” Feildel told AAP on Tuesday.
“They cook what they know and they cook with their heart.
“I’m sure everyone thinks it’s going to be a similar show but it’s really very different.”
The hit show got off to a great start when aired in February but still didn’t attract enough ratings to topple US shows Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory.
Feildel said he was excited about the contestants on the show and believed they would make the ratings.
“I just wanted to be wowed by some cooking. Not necessarily fine dining, but good techniques, just a good meal,” he said.
“Some stood out more than others, but they worked very hard, they’re passionate about food.”
“We can’t be sure for sure, but I’m sure it’s going to work very well, because it’s just about normal people at home and everybody’s going to be able to relate to that,” Feildel said.
It is state against state, kitchen against kitchen – who will win?
