Talking TV (Test)
What are you watching?
🍹🍹🍹🍹🍹🍾🍾”What does getting an apron mean to you?” Have a drink when someone mentions the sacrifice, the children, the life on hold.
Another drink for hysterical overreaction upon Shannon Bennett entering the kitchen.
And another for mention for ‘blind’ taste testing. Yeah right.
I’m still excited. I am loving this.
I am sure they all handed scripts at the beginning. It is not possible that this number of cliches are an accident.
Ben from Queensland has the sob story.
“Doin’ it for my girls” lady is a writer. That’s a new one.
She is also the wife of Chadwick Models agency owner Martin Walsh.
Ahh. She’ll be good for the advertisers.
Ben doesn’t know that different ingredients have different cooking times. Even I know that, and I’m the person who put coconut milk in a lasagna. He can’t stay no matter what his backstory is.
He is a Queenslander that is enough. The MC ads up there always seem to be parochial.
Hang on…someone did not get in because they didn’t make rice paper???????
The ratings are in for last night and House Rules was the big loser. However, MC was still beaten by The Voice. The only person I know watching that is Daisy. Who are these Voice fans? http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/entertainment/house-rules-smashed-in-ratings-by-the-voice-and-masterchef-australia/news-story/fbe2b991a304fba1254f0affafc80afc
I swing into The Voice every now and then. You only need to hear the first five seconds of every singer to know whether they are any good or not. The rest is just padding.
The teen in this house specifically wanted to tune in to the voice (which we never watch) because there was some special catch on offer that night. Presumably they talk about it at school, so I imagine there are quite a few teens controlling the remotes. We should look at the demo breakdown for the shows.
French Fiona must not get through as she has no film package.
Le accent would kill me, non? Singing half of her sentences – opera style – NON!!!!
That nanny has got to go. Her voice is like nails down a blackboard for me.
Dear God, I hope she can’t cook.
Jess must get through.
Red-Hair Sarah is a fake. Who says about a bunch of strangers “I can’t live without any of them now.”
We would prefer the nanny over the vintage fake.
Armidale girl must get through.Top 10?
Then again maybe not, she has never made ice cream before.
In the nicest way, she’s an idiot.
Why would you go on MC without knowing how to make ice cream and practice making ice cream
For The Kids
Want to open restaurant
Can’t be bothered doing apprenticeship
Want to be famous like Julie Goodwin.
Dream to have afternoon cooking show.
Auditioned for all the other rtv shows.
Must look around town for posters.
Yep, the blind test is so blind. Not.
Yes, meat man was fairly obvious, but the duck did look delicious.
And they do want people with expressive faces. Makes for good television.
That last one is a pretty dish. Chocolate mousse. Even I took a breathe when he took the lid off. Pretty young Asian girl, so she qualifies on a number of levels.
But is she only good with desserts like those last few years
Aprons awarded to :
Lisa (not much air time)
Jenny (sans Rice Paper girl)
Jess (You Tuber 19yo)
Naveen & Fiona’s journey has ended.
Bonnie (Armidale girl) and Michelle get a second chance.
And we get our first panna cotta and lava cake.
I think we will be getting sick of the red hair Sarah doing all the narration
Is someone having a a baby?? People shouting PUSH, PUSH
I think that was the red-head. Hopefully she goes in week 1.
Have a feeling she will be kept around just before finals week just to narrate. This season’s Dani Venn.
Michelle got through . She annoys me. Lots of annoying people this year.
Since I am stuck in Mr 6’s bedroom trying to Vulcan grip him into unconciousness, here’s some unrelated news: American Grant from Bachidise was on the radio today, claiming that HE dumped Ali on her fourth day in LA after he caught her hooking up with another guy at his place. Grant said they had been out clubbing for three nights because that was a big part of his lifestyle (!) and he wanted to introduce Ali to his “scene”. He claims Ali wanted to have a threesome with the other guy. What the hell? Sounds more like Ali got over there and realised Grant was a major party dude – not conducive to the settled down, making babies future she envisioned. How bizarre.
That is simply not possible. I admit that she’s not my cup of tea but we have all watched her and, if anything, she veers more to the prudish side.
Does he really think that there is anyone, apart from his mother, that would believe that for a single moment?
Sounds like a fireman abusing his hose to me.
Lol BDD – this comment went to my “is this spam folder?” so I had to manually approve it. I guess fire—n and h—e are trigger words!
And I think red-h**d, which is going to make the first couple of weeks difficult for you ( or me):
Sounded like slut shaming to me. I couldn’t believe it when I heard what he was saying
Run down of the contestants: https://www.popsugar.com.au/celebrity/MasterChef-2018-Contestants-44759839
Most popular occupations are Stay at Home Parent, Social Work and HR. Devastated that there are no lawyers this year.
I don’t remember some of these people. No tragic backstory or no nonna.
Wow, more than half of the contestants are over 30! :O
I think there is a good chance of getting a male winner this year. I am backing Sashi to do well.
And ethnically diverse – you can tell it’s not Channel 7 or 9
A lot of contestants a little more laid back this year, probably due to a slightly older demographic and some maturity…
A bit surprised by prawn stuffed jalapeno man… didn’t look that good to me.
Wonder how many days gap it was between day 1 and day 2 of apron hand outs… people already way too chummy… except for the muslim mum, she didn’t seem to cheery.
Already these 2 episodes are better than anything MKR last season… (granted not hard to do!), and there are some interesting food ideas.
Also surprised that stuffed jalapeno man made it through. Shannon had to advise him on how to cook that dish so that the jalapeno and prawn cooked correctly.
More ice cream….is that going to be a repeat of last season?
Red-haired lady screaming and jumping and being irritating.
The 19 year old asian girl probably sees the pastry chef apprenticeship as beneath her, or her parents are pissed she isn’t doing accounting or pharmacy
I’m so behind – only just watched this now. The young dessert girl – Jess ? – is obviously talented but needs to watch her time management. Can’t believe that woman tried to make “flarn”, which cannot be rushed. At least with ice cream they can rush it in the blast chiller
