‘Since when did everyone just collectively decide it was pronounced ”Madge-y” instead of ”Mag-ee” or did I just grow up being lied to?’ one confused fan tweeted.
Another asked: ‘Wait, what, I always pronounced Maggi with a hard G.’
Before a third wrote: ‘Most important thing we learnt tonight is how Maggi is actually pronounced.’

Shock: The stunning moment occurred when a 10-second commercial aired during the show’s immunity challenge and a voiceover pronounced the well-known brand as ‘Madge-y’.
However, some fans refused to accept the pronunciation in the commercial, writing: ‘No. The ad is pronouncing Maggi wrong! It’s a hard g, it’s not like magic!’
According to the brand’s official website, the pronunciation of Maggi is dependent on the country.
The US pronounce it with a ‘hard g’ as in ‘magnet’, but in Australia, it’s pronounced with a ‘soft d’ as in ‘madgee’.
