A third annoyed viewer wrote: ‘What did she actually do this time besides cut her finger and burn some potatoes?’

Many fans of the Channel 10 cooking show couldn’t seem to understand how she was still a contender in the competition.

‘I’m not a Poh hater but she is so frustrating! Every team challenge she puts her team in the weeds and then she manages to slip past elimination. It’s really hard to watch,’ one viewer observed.

‘She was useless as a mentor last season. I have no time for her at all, she makes me not want to watch the show,’ another added.

Several fans accused her of bringing too much ‘drama’ to the series, and claimed she had been given too much screen time.

‘She creates the drama and it’s the constant laughing that I find annoying. I just don’t like the drama she creates, it takes [away] from the others and smacks of arrogance,’ one viewer commented.

‘Yes, there is drama from everyone, but not like it is with Poh – every single time she cooks,’ another critic wrote. 

Some people labelled her ‘very disorganised’ and claimed she was ‘deliberately’ acting confused in the kitchen.

One conspiracy theorist even suggested that Poh had been ‘sent in to sabotage’ this year’s season.
