Who's watching Masterchef this year? And what does everyone think of the judges?
I miss Gary, George and Matt but don't mind Melissa and Jock. Andy not so much.
I am watching excitedly as we speak! I too miss the old judges but also really happy it is still on air, still a great show and I really like Mel and Jock :)
I am totally ready for this. Just about the only "reality" TV I care to watch. I was on Masterchef a few years ago for an "eating cameo". It was rad. It was a team challenge with Heston Blumenthal. Yes, the food is even better than it looks.
I miss the old judges too but the way Melissa reviews food is refreshing and she is better at it than the old judges. I was tired of George saying this is tasty food, etc.
Wow I bet that was such an amazing experience Ethelinde. You're so lucky :)
Masterchef was running a couple of competitions and I woke up at 6am to answer a question about mayo and aoli. My ex bf thought I was mad but he got to come along for the experience. I took a day off work and candidly told my boss I was going to be on Masterchef for the day haha
That is incredible, sounds like a amazing day and something I would definitely take a day off work for too.
What did you have to do for the cameo?
Other than sign an agreement that said we were happy to be filmed and also partially an NDA (non-disclosure agreement), we just had to be there and ready to eat the food.
As it was a team challenge, you just had to line up at each stall and tell each contestant which item from their menu you wanted. You could line up to as many stalls as you wanted but the lines were quite long. It was also really hot that day and we were filming on Brighton Beach and the contestants were serving from the bathing boxes. You guys probably know which episode I am referring to if you are longtime Masterchef watchers.
How exciting! I've watched every season and always wondered how they chose a crowd of people to come along to the stalls.
Oo we have a masterchef celeb amongst us :-D I always worry people will get food poisoning eating the food because the cooking always looks so frantic. Glad you enjoyed your experience. :-)
Every time I see someone wipe their sweat or cut their finger I always cringe
Haha not a celeb! Just there to make sure the food got eaten!
I'm watching too!!
And me! :)
Can we talk first ep. I will avoid spoilers for next two eps (and I am not caught up yet anyway). What is with the guy who cooked the green stuff which he said was not a personal dish and then goes on to disagree with the judges!? Rude. I wouldn't give that one a second chance at all. Mel's response was so classy.
I've only seen the first episode too. Yes that guy was a real tool lol. Mel was so right in saying that he cooked what he thought would please them. I wouldn't have given that attitude a second chance either. He seems really disrespectful. So far my favourite is the lady (not sure of her name yet) who had breast cancer that cooked all those curries. She seems really down to earth and lovely.
I don't think they gave him any air time in the second episode. I take it the producers were just as put off.
Lol. Glad he's gone!
I watched the second episode last night and I'm really liking the lawyer with the glasses and the guy with the long earring who made that Greek dish. How about you?
Same! I was worried for Conor (I think that's his name) but turns out he's just a genius and we might see him pull more rabbits out of hats at the last minute.
Too early to have favourites but I like Conor's jam and I love Minoli (what a beautiful woman inside and out!).
I missed the first two episodes coz we had guests but watched last night (I know I can catch the episodes online but meh). What is up with Andy's wardrobe?! Poor thing, it looks like he didn't negotiate a wardrobe budget in his contract or something. I mean the other two judges dress well so...
I watch it on 10play.com.au so you can watch all the eps there if you miss one.
Yes I totally agree. I noticed the same thing last year. Mel and Jock were always dressed up and then there was Andy, dressed like Where's Wally or like he was about to go on a yacht.
I'm also watching! I don't miss the old judges at all (even though I did briefly meet Gary Mehigan once at a Good Food & Wine Show years ago - I won a prize for guessing who was eliminated first on Masterchef that year), I prefer the new ones, especially the goddess that is Melissa Leong. Sure, Andy could dress better & heighten his vocabulary, but I can let that slide.
Thoughts on our first week of eps:
So glad that Ben dude who was rude to Melissa didn't get through. What an arrogant piece of you-know-what, thinking that his dish was of such a high standard. His dish the 2nd night wasn't much better tbh.
My faves so far are Minoli (gorgeous woman inside & out, I agree with you Ethelinde) & Kishwar (although I can see the self-doubt angle getting tiresome quickly tbh...and this is coming from someone with self-doubt). I do have some others that I kinda like watching (anyone else think that Amir is a snack? Just me then?), but I'm still getting to know everyone.
Last night's episode had me kinda salivating through the TV! Between Eric's strange chicken & Justin's Lebanese chicken, I couldn't decide which dish I would've wanted to dig into more. Both looked delish.
Wish they'd been able to hand out more immunity pins in Wednesday's episode as there were at least 3 or 4 other contestants who were worthy of one.
I have oily combination ageing skin and this was great in the way it did not dry my skin out but also still gave it a cleanse.
Chubby-feel sponge comes hard and dry in the sealed hygienic packette.
This does feel amazing to apply in the way that it makes my hands both look and feel 100% hydrated.
