It’s Sachi, Chloe and 19 in tonight’s pressure test, is it? Names of who is left float right out of my mind at the end of an episode.

As much as 19 annoys me, I still hope it’s Chloe and her dirty hair, nasally voice, and hand-jive performances as she talks, who leaves tonight. And that her attempt at the pressure test dish results in a spectacularly dismal failure.

Amanda

I hope this isn’t another dessert. Then we know the fix is in

MonkeyMich

If Sashis in trouble, most likely a dessert.

Bobi

If the ads follow the traditional pattern, it will be Sachi going home tonight.
That would be a shame. He has been consistent all the way through.

Littlepetal

I thought the ad has Sashi in trouble so he will be safe

brain dead dave

I take the ad as Sachi being safe, as his recipe is on fire. So often it’s a sucker punch.

There have been exceptions this year when the ad isn’t BS. Say when Banana Fritters went home

Still, if Sachi can come up with an eleventh hour Nonna sob story….

Littlepetal

50 ingredients, 90 steps and 5 hrs. Good luck to Sashi!

Maz

LOL. Love the oh so subtle Cadbury Chocolate product placement on the breakfast bench.

Brussellsprout

I missed it. I thought it was standard for every house to contain a box of chocolates.ours certainly does. It’s the first thing we reach for in the mornings.

Littlepetal

I got my scissor ready!

Littlepetal

What BS. So all the remaining contracts get a chance to compete for the game changer

Maz

Ashley Palmer- Watts walks in and nobody knows who he is.

Amanda

Chloe – sweetie – it is “intricate” not “ennnnnnnnnnnnnnntricaaaaaate”. Lay off the Paris Hilton after sedative speech

MonkeyMich

Jess has a stroke, because she thought it would be dessert.

Rox

Jess will be doing only 19 steps.

Jazzman

When they show the master chef house Chloe is always draping herself seductively across the kitchen bench

MonkeyMich

Time for the mute button

Jayblossom

Chloe eats in the same unattractive manner as George and Gary, putting way too much in her mouth.

Maz

Don’t forget the groaning when she shovels the food in.

Jazzman

Oh Chloe there’s not “mushroom” for anything else in that pot

MonkeyMich

Oh Sashi.

MonkeyMich

When they said they wanted smokiness for the mushrooms, they didn’t mean you set fire to the recipe.

Littlepetal

Sashi is in a world of pain. Now have to cook without recipe? that will be BS

MonkeyMich

I agree. They should give him that page

Littlepetal

Jess squeeze out some tears. Will George and Gary give her a hug?

Justbrian

Tear work started already? Is she in trouble?

Rox

I’m shagged out by all this ” consUmme”.

Littlepetal

Well, it need to be consumed 🤣🤣

MonkeyMich

Chloe just a little curt with Ben. True colours.

Brussellsprout

Excellent. Yes of cawwwseeee she has got the poo shoot out. Wow snarky, much?

Jayblossom

Jess wins some brownie points for letting Sashi see her recipe. I can imagine Chloe sying she was using it and hanging Sashi out to dry.

Justbrian

Hahaha the producer was thinking “ this is gold” when Sashi set the recipe on fire! He might have already asked for that page and producer suggested she asked Only 19. Pretty much a set up I think.

MonkeyMich

Chloe just cooked her goose, or her fish. Hahaha. Oops oh that’s so sad

Jayblossom

I missed it. What happened?

MonkeyMich

She should have waited to put the uzu juice in the Maron as it cook it I think with the acid in it

Jayblossom

Thanks

Rox

“There’s a lot resting on this marron right now” said Chloe, with very few of the elements yet placed.

Maz

The guest chef “enjoyed” watching Chloe work tonight.

MonkeyMich

I noted that too. But I fear her batting eyelids won’t save her.

Maz

Never underestimate how much a man will forgive for the promise of a lithe body.

MonkeyMich

Did George just say she was a waitress at this guy Ashley’s place or just near it?

Maz

It sounded like it.

Rox

Jess was a waiter at a restaurant underneath the Heston one is what I heard.

Maz

Only 19 is safe.

Amanda

Wtf jess works at a restaurant under ashley’s!

MonkeyMich

That’s what I heard and Maz. The fix is in

Maz

George said, “Just a little reminder, 12 weeks ago you were a waitress in a restaurant under his”… gesture to Ashley “where this dish came from”.

Justbrian

They setting up for her to win! I so badly want to be wrong about this

Littlepetal

Jess work in Nobu, the famous Japanese rest. I think the nobu has been on MC before

Justbrian

This is making my blood boiled! So Jess worked at Nobu and Ashley restaurants and have limited knowledge of certain ingredients eg mushroom, feta etc and it’s still in the comp!? How is this not rigged??

Maz

Hahahaha. Garry tells Sachi that everyone has all the elements on the plate. Mmm, Lisa had all the elements all her plate but she was sacrificed for Chloe who was missing some.

Jazzman

Who was this Lisa?

Maz

Lipstick Lisa 👄👄👄😉

Jazzman

Ah. They just showed a mc Clio on hybpa . Lipstick lady

Amanda

Lol I don’t remember Matt asking George about the marron of anyone else other then Sashi. Combined with Gary’s passive aggressive swipe about the size – they want him out

Littlepetal

Gary really don’t like Sashi

MonkeyMich

Sasha tartare is rough? He measured everything he cut with a bloody ruler. Nit-picking a bit judges.

Maz

No more Valley Girl.

MonkeyMich

Bye Chloe.no more mute button for me. And to say Sashis dish was marginally better. What lying a-holes

Maz

So six dishes including the audition dish and Nigella’s dish are her highlights.

Bobi

So I am seeking clarification. I need to be really sure.
Chloe went home? I would be very excited.
I was on mute and looked up to see some Indian dishes and Sachi being hugged.
But given the comments above, it’s Chloe?

Littlepetal

Yes! Chloe is nicely stuck in bed in her own home

Brussellsprout

I know! I was late home and finally received the wonderful wonderful news.
Chloe and her dodgy dropping strand of unhygienic hair, her fake kardashian drawl and her over inflated sense of her own importance ….. has left the building!

Bobi

That is good news. And well over-due – like by weeks and weeks.

Juz
Bobi

Well, that was a 50/50 split. It seems we are out there with our dislike of Chloe.
There was one interesting comment that our general dislike was being misdirected. It’s not Chloe’s fault that the judges are showing bias. We should only be upset with the judges. I thought we were being even handed and hating on both.

Jayblossom

I tuned back in just as the “where is she now” blurb came up. She’s about 5 years too late with her healthy eating initiative for primary schools. Most schools already have some sort of program, including one by a former MC contestant.

Zhee

Didn’t Fiona from Season 2 do actually that? 🙂

Littlepetal

Alice (the one with spec) also doing something with children. And Alice has a vibrant personality. Not Chloe. The children will fall asleep with her bland voice.

Bolders

we don’t need the next generation to have the same speech affectation as Ms Chloe. It is VERY unpleasant to listen to.

Bobi

And Elena is doing something really interesting with troubled youth. I can’t find a link but apparently it’s having great results. She is a teacher by training so I am sure that helps.
Chloe is too late and “knows not of what she speaks”.

brussellsprout

Because Glowing Elena is wonderful in every possible way. It is wrong to even put them in the same category, hey? GIL is painful, Elena is perfect.

lulu

Of course, Genius 19 sweeps through again. In her permanent position at the front, as usual, she can do no wrong.
As annoying as Ghana was, would’ve loved for 19 to go – just to spare personal aggravation.

And I don’t buy all that ‘just a waitress’ guff. I sense years of grooming (and probably piano, ballet and acting lessons which didn’t work out).

George really needs to control the way he favours and looks at Only 19 – it’s almost predatory, as though he’s ‘salivating.’ Down, boy.

Another silly, over-complicated dish from one of Heston’s employees – and to think 100 kilos of mushrooms gave up their lives for a trickle of pretentious consomme.

Von

YAAAAY!. Ahem, 842 here, just saw the result.

Fijane

The script continues. Protected favourite is nurtured through until final four or three, and then ditched to offset the possible outcry if that one wins (meanwhile having done their job of creating outrage).

This year is “full of surprises” because mid-season they found a second favourite – gasp! And this one they might let win. That really would be a surprise…and a travesty,

Smythe

Chloe is finally gone. YAH! Was she this season’s favorite or just a “red herring”? Maybe both. They have one or two “red herrings” each season. I didn’t mind Chloe in the beginning but then wanted her gone to the obvious favoritism and her lack of creativity.
The close ups of George using his tweezers are absolutely unnecessary. I always find it interesting that the stooges generally critique each dish before the guest chef. The guest chef created that dish and should give his opinion first.

brussellsprout

I am a dark conspiracy merchant here Smythe – the bozos have to go first so the guest chef can’t accidentally pan a judge favourite or praise someone slated for eviction!

Littlepetal

My conspiracy theory.Do you think they can cut and paste and what they showed us may not be in the right order?

Also, I am sure they can have reshoot.!

Smythe

They can do anything with editing. 🙂

HeWhoHasNoName

Sanity prevails and the GIL is gone. I guess even the producers realised having GIL win or even be in the grand final would be too much BS for even the dumbest of viewers to swallow.

Sashi surely can’t win, surely in the GF when he’s going to get a heston dish he’s going to crumble.. anything non curry.. he’s toast.

It’s going to be Khan or Ben for the title… Ben would be the best story due to his medical condition.. a tradie… which would work well with the common viewer as not everyone can relate to a DJ who loves the taste of his own pee.

AnnaB

I hadn’t realised Ben’s medical condition. I had wondered about what appeared to be a paunch but now understand that it is a colostomy bag. I do admire him for what he is doing and really hope that he wins. He must have to be so careful about what he eats.

Ma Chook

Thank God she’s gone. Never had an original thought the entire time on the show. Even in the invention test, she puts up a bloody Forest Floor and goes on as if she’s the first person to come up with this concept. We have had so many forest floors over the years, the MC kitchen has been declared a Word Heritage site!!

Carole Morrissey

Finally finally finally she’s gone.
Poor Sashi burnt his recipe page, but good on Jess for lending him her page.
It was obvious Jess was safe so it was down to Chloe & Sashi. I was holding my breath hoping like hell it would be Chloe.
All those mushrooms for that tiny dish. What happened to the rest of them?

Justbrian

Can someone shed a light as how did Jess caught up when she was apparently 20mins behind? The recipe was very complex and would have thought that 20mins would ample time for her to fcuk but surprisingly her dish was perfect?? The presentation was spot on with her so desserts hands? If she was a waitress there, wouldn’t she have seen this dish?

Littlepetal

She wasn’t a waitress at Dinner by Heston, but a waitress in the restaurant next or below Heston restaurant

Bob Saget

Today should be a national day of mourning OMGZ CHLOE NOT THERE!! DAY such a terrible tragedy she was cruelly outed!

Tofu Lover

Sashi burning his recipe was hilarious, luckily it didn’t cost him. Can’t believe Jess is the last female standing. She probably won’t win though, the three blokes remaining are way stronger cooks.

Amanda

I have found myself warming to Ben, he seems really sincere and humble, and he doesnt done a frikken granita.
