Zoe thinks she is in a hair commercial (judging by the swish in opening credits).

Is Patene a sponsor?

Bob

Last night was a bit ho-hum. I have better hopes for tonight.

techhater

I’m glad the bs of final 24 is over. For me its a waste of 3 episodes. I much preferred the top 50 and watching all the hopeless wannabes.

Bob

And we’re already on a ‘journey’. Let the drinking games begin.

Maz

Trent is an alcoholic’s dream:
passionate
food dream
Grandma
open a restaurant

Plus Theresa:

I think I am in trouble.

Bob

He must be out. There are no cliches left for tomorrow.

Brussellsprout

Indeed- he greedily gobbled up his entire season’s share of cliches in one night.

techhater

๐Ÿป

Maz

Let’s list the sponsors:
1. Kelloggs
2. Global Knives

brain dead dave

3.Nicorette
4.Coals

Liberty

Sick of the sight of that bloody annoying ford woman too.

Jayblossom

Me too!

Bob

Needy is adorable. I hope she stays. Is it too early to have a favourite?

Littlepetal

I love how you spell ‘needy’. I hope Juz and BDD not getting calls from needy

brain dead dave

Nidhi! Nidhi ! Nidhi!

Oi! Oi! Oi!

Adelaide brings it yet again.

Maz

In ten words or less…

If she does well, I expect that Nidhi will have a post-MC media career.

Fijane

I’m not feeling the love. She’s OK but a small dose would do me.

Early favourite for me is Mimi.

Littlepetal

Another ravioli!!

techhater

๐Ÿ˜ต More ravioli…

Sara

Just what i was thinking. Im sick of all the pasta๐Ÿ˜€ And isnt Billie beautiful!

techhater

Absolutely Sara. I’ll have to rewatch SBS’s Inside Heston’s World, because I didn’t see her there I’m sure.

Littlepetal

Heston ‘s world was filmed when his Fat Duck was relaunched. I think Billie was working in the prep room and not in the main kitchen

Littlepetal

Snap!!!

techhater

Haha I was just about to post SNAP and snap you beat me too it. ๐Ÿ˜‚

techhater

My forecast is we won’t see all 24 dishes (as usual) ๐Ÿ˜ข

Bob

Needy says she is not a delicate cook. It looks okay to me.

Bob

I think ravioli man is gone. Otherwise too much time for a bad dish. What a shame. He looks like good lelevision.

Bob

Ashley. And then an ad break. Definitely gone. Oh well. I’m starting to think about ravioli about the same as I am thinking about pannacotta.

techhater

Not while he runs his fingers through his hair he doesn’t.

Liberty

Well his pasta looked a bit dry, maybe trying to oil it up a bit ๐Ÿ˜‰

techhater

๐Ÿ˜‚

Littlepetal

Ban list:

Pannacotta
Ravioli
Ice cream
Sorbet
Parfait

Brussellsprout

I think rendered duck breast (Other than in mystery box) should also be banned.

brain dead dave

Pork Belly
Poached Pears
Crispy skin.
Proscuitto
Polenta
Marron
Squab
Venison
Quail

Smythe

Stuffed zucchini flowers
beetroot

Von

Pureed vegetables
Foam anything (looks like spit)

Heh, we aren’t leaving much.

Fijane

fennel
beetroot
parsnip
any combination of those three

Any claim that an element is difficult that uses a machine doing all the work eg icecream, sous vide etc

Maz

Gary is being an arsehole to Miles.

techhater

You have to wonder why.

Liberty

What? Gary, being an arsehole? Say it isn’t so! ๐Ÿ˜‰

brain dead dave

“Ar$ehole” is Gary’s default setting.

Jayblossom

When Billie said the it was the best looking dish she’d seen all day, was she talking about the food or the cook?

Lola

The guy with the feminine shirt on looks like he was about to burst into tears after Matt’s critique . Toughen up buddy.
Needy has a nice smile, I hope she doesn’t become annoying.
Jimmy loves Jimmy’s cooking (aka Seinfeld )

Liberty

Fennel Oil ice-cream – I must have an underdeveloped palate.

Carole

Oh that sounds revolting. I’m old fashioned, ice cream is meant to be sweet.

Littlepetal

Jimmy has made some nasty comment on Twitter. I don’t think he is a very nice person

techhater

What did he say???

Littlepetal

From Jimmy:
If Jordan makes it through its cos George reckons he has a chance to have a crack at her #MasterChefAustralia

techhater

Well he just sealed his fate with the viewers. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Jayblossom

Wrong on so many levels.

Bob

Jordan? Whose Jordan? Not on my list.

Littlepetal

The girl who got lots of airtime in the 2 audition night

Littlepetal

Another one from Jimmy

Gay Asian… Annoying Indian… Dejavu from our season #masterchefAu

He has to say he is the fourth best cook in Masterchef 2010

Rosie

He was the one who made such a big deal about opening his own Indian restaurant. We’re still waiting, Jimmy…

Liberty

I agree, LP. Seems full of himself.

Sara

Totally agree, dont like Jimmy

Liberty

His 15 minutes is long gone. Probably jealous there’s now another “jimmy” for people to get him confused with. Stick to your curries!

techhater

I’m confused….
๐Ÿ˜• which Jimmy???

Liberty

Indian Jimmy Seervai from 2010
LP said something about season 2010 in her other post.

techhater

OK it was him that posted both tweets not this Jimmy, sorry I mistook it for this year’s Jimmy.

techhater

Thanks Liberty I missed the 1st reference to 2010 by LP and that’s where I got confused.

Brussellsprout

Wow – Jimmy is one nasty piece of work. Maybe his curries are based on his patented “bunny boiler” recipe because he clearly doesn’t deal with rejection well.

techhater

Only 15 dishes shown.

Jayblossom

Gary really doesn’t like Miles. Does he feel threatened by a man who could survive in the bush?

Lola

I’m with you Liberty, fennel ice cream is a travesty!

Some who used the Beetroot also looked like they murdered their dishes.

Sandii

I love Needy

Littlepetal

Even Marco love Needy!!

techhater

๐Ÿ˜

Lola

Channel surfed and found “This is spinal tap” on.
Classic

Juz

We got home just as the credits were rolling. Mr Juz has never seen it. Travesty.

brain dead dave

Never seen it, either.

But I’ve been in a band.

Juz

Let me guess: a ska band?

brain dead dave

Take it to the bank that the sibling won’t be aliminated tonight. She’s in trouble in the promo.

The tall beard will probably be gone.

Bob

I’m thinking it will be short blond guy. He didn’t get much air time last night so my guess is lots of air time tonight (and cliches) as he muddles his way out.

Von

Anyone except me look at the final 24 and wonder who most of them are? I know three or four of them by face and/or by name. The rest of them might have popped out from the mystery box, as much as I can differentiate among them.

Liquified beetroot anything looks like blood. Blech.

brain dead dave

An autopsy on a plate is what that liquid beetroot “creates”. Needed a judge brave enough to say it.

Lola

Hi Dave, good to be back with the rest of you gice critiquing our favourite cooking show. The sibling and the crier will stay, the beards gone.
With the rest of the amatas yelling from the gantry.
Ah Masterchef, we have missed you.
Is it just me or is the background Muzak louder and more annoying this year?

brain dead dave

The muzak was plenty loud last year and I’d wager that it’s the very same stuff. Computer generated library music. You get the Jaws effect, the Chariots Of Fire stuff and the sob story dirges. A kitchin full of kitsch tones. Speaking of kitsch, B&B has started. I’m orf like a bucket of marron.
