More rubbish acting from Plastic sisters.

Jazzman

I think the taller Italian brother has advanced hair, ooh yeah

Jazzman

They should call the Russian cooking Comrads, cankle comrads.

Cooking and delivering takeaway meals to random addresses in Sydney, versus a lawn bowls barbecue?

Yeah. One of these teams is getting the easier challenges out of pity for their general ability, I think.

Jazzman

Ah, the old food truck

Jazzman

Wasted calories, says the plump sister

Windsong

No, if it was Saturday at Bunnings, they’d be doing snags in bread with tomato sauce and some fried onions.

7 years working in a Bunnings in my 20s, and I still react quite badly to the smell of barbecuing snags 🙁 .

Windsong

That makes me a sad panda.

I don’t even really shop at Bunnings anymore, to be honest. Working there for that long just turned me off the whole thing.

Is not fun anymore watching this show. Contestants are not serious with the cooking. Just mucking around for the camera.

Windsong

I think it says a lot about my viewing habits, but I found it far more entertaining watching the non-cooking teams playing bowls (I’ve played bowls only once in my life. It is not an easy game) and having a laugh, than watching teams who I don’t like and who can’t cook try to put a barbecued meal together.

Burgers basted with Dijon and chilli sound good to me, if there is more mustard than chilli. But I haven’t had dinner yet so maybe I’m just hungry enough for everything to sound good.

I’ve noticed on MKR and MC that most people seem to forget that pots and pans have lids for a reason. So many contestants put a humongous pot of water on to boil for pasta or nockie, but don’t put the lid on, then whine and carry on because the water didn’t reach a boil quickly enough. I don’t know (nor care) if it is chemistry or physics, just seems like common sense to me, especially if cooking to a time limit. Dolts.

Littlepetal

Are they picking the so call bottom team from Gp 1 so that they will knock off the Military couple?

Still 7 teams from Gp2 and only 5 teams from Gp1. As per script, I am sure the producers will end up with same number of teams from each group

Windsong

Hipster hat is still kind of pretentious, but at least he and his girlfriend can actually cook (most of the time. But any port in a storm).

Gee, it’d be interesting if Matt and Aly beat the Italian brothers tomorrow night. I don’t see it happening, but it’d be a lovely surprise.

I just wasn’t interested at all tonight, I kept changing the channel to an old “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” episode on cable.

One of the Italian Guys, when giving a tray to the Plastics, held it back and asked, “How about a kiss?” Ew, Italian Guy, eeewww, sleazy and creepy. I don’t like him anymore.

The Plastic who went to get the wine is wearing Crocs. *snort*

Littlepetal

I think all the cooking teams are wearing Crocs-more like safety boots.

Windsong

So not even upper-class bogan, but more middle class? If only you could buy style, as easily as you buy a new pair of lips…

Von

I’m not even laughing at lack of style, don’t care, just think Crocs are the worst shoes ever designed. Ugly, tick. Plastic, tick. Sweat-inducing, tick. Should not be worn by anyone over the age of three, tick.

Von

When the Italian guys were running late, and told one old guy the meal would be another 10 minutes, the old guy said “Italians are always late.” As insults go, not the worst I suppose, but why was that left in? It wasn’t funny, but rude. Overt sexism and racism, MKR, detracts from an already declining show.

HeWhoHasNoName

Last night thought I was watching Married at First Sight instead of MKR… how many fricken side stories do we need in a cooking competition? Usually yes there’s one villianous team who is at war with another…

This year we have the over opinionated Jordanians, Russians, Italians, Asian Sisters, Plastics not Fantastics…. it’s ludicrous.

Next year hear they’re casting a highly religious muslim team and a hasidic Jewish team, and a North and South Korean team, and a Tamil and Singalese team. Can’t wait.

Smythe

You forgot the gangstas. LOL Thankfully they are gone.

Zhee

Don’t forget the evil German couple. Like really evil ones. Like… from an Indiana Jones movie. Like really superevil!

Double dipping by Jess when she tastes the onions and then puts the fork back in to mix them.
Nothing exciting being cooked except Kim’s and Suong’s food. I was surprised they didn’t win people’s choice.
