Cooking with Curtis

Food is a universal language that has the power to soothe, comfort and heal, not only for the eater but for those who cook.

Friends, partners, mothers, daughters, fathers and sons nominate a deserving candidate to spend an afternoon in the kitchen with Michelin-starred chef Curtis Stone on Cooking with Curtis.

Each episode opens with a clip of the nominating guest's audition reel.

Nominees might include a nurse or grocery store clerk who has worked tirelessly over the course of the last year as an essential worker, a single dad nominated by his daughter who is holding down two jobs but strives to put a healthy meal on the table every night, a fiancé hoping to impress his bride-to-be with his newfound cooking prowess, a grandpa whose granddaughter aspires for a professional career in the restaurant industry.

Curtis shares why this person's story spoke to him and why he wants to help lend a hand in improving their culinary skills and make a memorable dish or meal for their loved one.

Accident, Suicide or Murder 3

This true crime series takes you through the stunning twists and turns of real-life cases involving suspicious deaths.

At the heart of each case is a pressing question: was the victim's demise the result of an accident, suicide, or possibly murder?

Each hour-long episode retraces the investigation from start to finish, taking you through the twists and turns of these shocking cases, from dissecting the red flags to the undeniable evidence, and strange behaviour that put the tragedy in question.

With the families fighting for justice and the detectives on the case determined to find the truth, motives will be exposed and justice will be served as the families finally find out what caused the death of their loved ones.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Dark Echoes": This season starts with a weekend trip to an Alaskan lodge where a young mother is shot and killed by her boyfriend.

The death is ruled an accident and the case is closed until an eerily similar incident in Montana drives investigators to reopen the case.

Genre: Reality Competition

Australian Survivor: Blood v Water

After Hayley Leake was crowned Sole Survivor in 2021, a whole new batch of castaways will attempt to Outwit, Outplay and Outlast... but this season comes with an almighty twist.

In Blood v Water, players will be competing as pairs, bound by blood.

It's a double-edged sword to play with someone you trust.

Relationships will be tested, bonds will be broken, and new pacts will be forged as these castaways are pushed to their limits playing in the extreme conditions of the Aussie Outback.

Think siblings, married couples, in-laws, twins or cousins fighting the elements together, but at the end of the day, there can only be one Sole Survivor.

So, do these castaways have what it takes to blindside their own blood?

The cast includes two-time American Survivor winner Sandra Diaz-Twine, former NRL player Michael Crocker, former MasterChef Australia contestant Khanh Ong and former Australian Survivor contestants Andy Meldrum, Mark Wales and Samantha Gash.

Date My Family 4

Channel: eReality (Openview 108)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Dating Game Show, Reality

Date My Family 4

Game show in which singles who are looking for love are sent on dates with the families of three potential partners, and must decide who to date based solely on the impression their family gives.

Forget about the "two people meet each other" typical love story. It's now a full-on family affair.

In each episode, audiences are introduced to a bachelor/bachelorette who's looking for love.

That singleton is then sent on three dates – to meet the families of three potential partners.

The twist in the tale? The bachelor/bachelorette must choose just one potential partner who they think they'll hit it off with – based solely on what the families say and do.

But will they make the right choice?

The three potential partners are kept out of sight, watching the action unfold onscreen, as the bachelor/bachelorette engages with their respective family.

They secretly hope that their families paint them in the best possible light and make a good first impression.

With no communication at all between the bachelor/bachelorette and the potential partners, the scene is set for an unforgettable final date.

Expect laughs and drama as Cupid gets a helping hand from brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, moms, dads, nieces, nephews, cousins and of course, grandparents.

At the end the day, the question remains: will it love at first hello - or a fast goodbye?
