Only 19 has never seen a cheque before.

This is where we feel sorry for every single past top 10 contestant…these useless contestants get $10k just for making top 10 courtesy of Coles.

Really Homicidal Intent??? You are a public servant. You would be well remunerated compared to those in the private sector.

Zhee

To be honest, I never had seen cheques before either, the first time I used one was after I moved to France. 😉 And that was when I was 28! In Germany, we did not use cheques, we had our bank card (Maestro). Also credit cards are still very uncommon in Germany, unlike in France – I have a proper credit card here.

Maz

The contestants are now stressed out as they have to cook with everything in the mystery box tonight. Boohoo.

Littlepetal

Every mystery box should be like this one

Jayblossom

Too right LP.

Von

There’s a big surprise in the mystery box? I wonder what it could be. Maybe a royal decree demanding the Dirty Hair Brigade use shampoo? Oh, yeah, Charles can’t issue royal decrees yet. It’s probably just a recording of a sleazy phone call, sleazy enough to distract the contestants from making ice cream or pannacotta. Auto correct wants me to change pannacotta to terracotta.

Maz

$10000 each from Coles.

Jayblossom

Your ideas are much more interesting than what was really in the box.

Jayblossom

We don’t see much of Samira but when we do she really impresses me. no nonsense and just gets on with the job.

brain dead dave

We see a lot of H.I.

Maz

Too much of H.I. Insufferable.

Jayblossom

Any airtime HI gets is too much for my liking.

Maz

H.I. tells the world how beautiful her flat breads are. This is going to painful until she is eliminated.

brain dead dave

Fat breads.

Maz

Oh, it was ALL the machine’s fault it couldn’t make perfect flat breads. Sigh… she had to do it by hand.

Jayblossom

Thank goodness she didn’t get another chance to be in immunity. Super smug when she wins and super pissed off when she doesn’t. She was looking daggers when they were lined up before the invention test.

Maz

Really? Debate who the winner is? You dismissed Samira out of hand and then pretended that H.I’s dish was impressive.

Jayblossom

They always dismiss Samira’s successes. She’s also at a disadvantage because she’s so tiny – as a short person I know how hard it is to cook at benches made for average height people.

Zhee

Being 1,54m only, I know it very well. One of my best friends is nearly 1,80m and she has a kitchen fitted for a tall woman. She always offers me the little step she uses for her 5 year old. 😉

Jayblossom

I’m with you Juz, I’d find it difficult to be less interested!

brain dead dave

No.

Crime shows , soccer. Anything but The Logies.

Von

Have any of you tried kalettes? I haven’t seen them at my local Coles. I love Brussels sprouts , but don’t like kale, more because of its texture than the taste.

Von

I flipped over during one ad. Then I immediately flipped back after seeing the award was for best “factual documentary”.

lulu

Now that’s funny. What is a doco supposed to be if not factual?

Carole Morrissey

I watched the Logies & taped MasterChef.

Maz

Gross. Did you see how H.I separates eggs?

Carole Morrissey

Why don’t they use egg separators? They have every fancy gadget & appliance but not an egg separator. I’d be lost without mine.

Jazzman

Did Kristen say autuminall ? Is that a word?

Maz

Yep-autumnal. It is a real word. One favoured by Nigella.

Maz

There should be a new bingo game. Include the words humble, rustic, autumnal, unctuous.

brain dead dave

You’ve missed “squashbuckling” from Jo Griggs on HR tonight.

Jazzman

I don’t think she pronounced it correctly though. It seemed when Garry later said it very clearly, almost like he was contradicting her

Maz

How many dishes have been cook what you want?

Oh FFS…FV and her child. Is this show about food or how many dependents you have?

Maz

Hey Gary, sometimes its not about you. It should be how well you execute the dish.

Littlepetal

Brendan is going from strength to strength

Jayblossom

Some of the contestans’ reasons for going on the show are so transparent.
For example FV is so obviously doing an ongoing audition for her own TV show.

Maz

Think she wants to be the orange wiggle.

Maz

We think H.I fancies herself as Australia’s Nigella.

Jayblossom

Perhaps but men love Nigella because of her sexy manner, HI has more of a prison guard manner.

Maz

I sure there is a niche for that on the Food Network.

Littlepetal

FV always has her hair done up, full make up( even when she is cooking). As if she is doing one of the cooking show on Ch 10.
The others are all sweating their guts out

Jayblossom

WOW!!!! I’m stunned, Gary and George both made negative comments about Chloe’s dish.

Littlepetal

Visually the looks of Kristen and Chloe dishes have the same color schemes. But judges said Chloe dish looks yak but Kristen dish was beautiful.

Jayblossom

Yes I thought Kristen’s wasn’t visually appealing. I think they praise up Kristen so they can deny that they only favour young, pretty contestants.
The way they talk up her dishes is ridiculous, my only other explanation is that they bought her “Poor me, I’ve got low self esteem act” and are afraid to criticise.

Smythe

Kristen’s dish looked bland and lacked interest. Poached pears, crumble and a mousse. How many times has that been done??
The amount of time Kristen was featured made me think that this was the Kristen show and not MC.
Thought it was funny that when Chloe said she was making cheesecake George made a comment about her cooking a cheesecake again.

Maz

Brendan, H.I & Samira are in the immunity challenge.

GIL, FV &19 are in elimination.

Jayblossom

Yay! Finally a pressure test in which I’ll be happy regardless of the outcome.

lulu

Yep, a freeroll!

Sara

Kirsten’s low self esteem has certainly risen since she’s been in the house with her mates. A little bit too cocky for my liking.

Jayblossom

Smug is not attractive on anyone

Jazzman

Chloe’s “sophisticated” cheesecake. I didn’t think much of the “sophisticated” close up shot of her butt.
Oh and also when Jess said shit, I was not expecting that. Do they usually have swearing on Masterchef. Or were they not expecting Jess to say it so didn’t censor it. I don’t care about swearing, just wondering

Littlepetal

Something fishy in Masterchef kitchen. Kristen got her crispbread baked in under 5 minutes. Her recipe said to bake 15 to 20 minutes. Hmm….

brain dead dave

George must have stuck his arse into the oven to hurry the bread along. Another surprise.

HeWhoHasNoName

Sadly I think GIL survives.. the promos show her and Jess bringing in their plates to be judged with smiles on their faces.. no showing FV. So I thiink FV is a bye… especially the last few episodes we’ve had her montages with Elvis.. and an indian dish would suit GIL and Jess moreso.

I was also musing about how Hoda would’ve gone last night… having to use alcohol in a dish, she would never have been able to balance or taste…I suspect they held off that ingredient/challenge until Hoda was off.

Love Samira but I’m not sure she’s human.. think she may be a cyborg.

And I wonder if Masterchef spies were on MKR… they had to compete with the Vietnamese refugee mums and Russians.. so here we have “On Point” Khan and Samira to culturally balance the two shows.

I worry… even though Reece did jack all yesterday he still got substantial airtime… this displeases me as I hope to god he’s not a finalist.

And what more can be said about Miss Low Self Esteem that hasn’t already been said… but I hope she uses part of that 10K to look into improving her lifestyle and health because she’s constantly out of breath and overheated compared to most contestants.

And GIL…. I was happy the judges went “not another cheesecake”, don’t know whether specifically targetted at her but noodles and cheesecake is all she does… soon she’s going to pull out a cheesecake noodle.

Carole Morrissey

So I wonder if they got the $10 000 because they didn’t go overseas. They usually go with the top 10 don’t they?
So that’s about the third time in a row Khan’s been up for immunity.
So Gary turns up his nose & says he doesn’t like poached pears & then loves them. For once it paid off not listening.
Chloe’s cheesecake looked horrible. I was worried she might work some miracle & manage to make it look presentable but the looks on their faces when she brought it up said no she didn’t. They really couldn’t make excuses for her.
So do we dare hope we finally get rid of Chloe tonight. I almost wish Sachi was in the pressure test tonight being an Indian dish. He would have blitzed it.

lulu

I actually think Samira is the judges’ fave atm, though she’s basically a bread-maker who cooks food from the ‘home country.’
Plus she’s very short, and years of MC indicate that Gary and George love anyone shorter than they are, which is difficult. She can do no wrong right now.

As for Kristen, her continuing success remains a mystery. Though I can understand their fear – she’s even scary to watch. And I’m tipping they have a defibrillator at the ready as she gets so red and out of breath. Never realised poaching pears could be aerobically challenging.

What a fabulous pressure test – would only be better if it were a triple elim.
