This episode is another painful episode. It is all about Ghana.

Jesse’s mum has told Jess she has stacked on the weight.

Brussellsprout

That was way uncomfortable- “chubby” when she still looks slender! What if she was HI’s mother- yikes.

Smythe

Was surprised about Jess’ mom’s comment. Jess looks just fine when it comes to weight. I would think that would be embarrassing for Jess but maybe she is used to being criticized like that. Mum wasn’t all that supportive regarding what she was cooking either.

Littlepetal

I think the mother is over protective. Jess did say she live in a ‘bubble’. Well, she is only 19 but maybe 9 to her mum

Maz

We think she has put on a bit of weight though which would be noticeable to her mum who hasn’t seen her in a while.

Tina

Yeah, thanks Mum for the future eating disorder!

Littlepetal

Why Reece’s partner didn’t show up?

Maz

Might be camera shy.

Maz

Reece’s best friend picked duck for his mystery ingredient. Don’t think they are going to be friends anymore as he wanted a dessert element.

Carole Morrissey

I hope she was watching it with him & slapped him when she saw he cooked with the duck for the next challenge after she’d left. Why bring them only for the one challenge?

Littlepetal

Common Gary. Fettuccini is like noodles to Chinese. Doesn’t mean you can’t use it to make an Asian dish

Sara

Thought they had to use whatever their ‘loved one’ brought.

Littlepetal

They only need to use one ingredient from the mystery box.

brain dead dave

That could overwhelm the amatas.

Lola

As soon as family members walked through the door, I changed channels.
Watching Cake wars on the Food channel instead.

brain dead dave

The families are as deluded as the amatas.Too toxic to watch.

Jayblossom

Reece is making a parfait and granita. So good to see him branching out and doing something totally different.

Von

Undoubtedly, this will be comment of the night, Jayblossom.

I’m reading comments before the start because I don’t really give a crap on the result anymore. Nil fucks given. If they get rid of Chloe, I might be able to enjoy the final.

Brussellsprout

Definitely the comment of the day! Taken to perfection.

Smythe

Same old stuff from Reece although he did cook duck in the second round but still. He and Jess should just be eliminated for doing so many of the same dishes over and over and over again. I was doing other things and semi watching the episode because there is nothing very interesting happening on MC 2018.

Littlepetal

Again the judges are glorifying Jess dish. If someone else, they would said it is too simple

Justbrian

Don’t forget she is only 19!

Brussellsprout

Thanks. I’d forgotten that. Can you remind me again where Samira is from? My memory is hazy- I wish they would occasionally remind us of key details about the contestants.

Maz

Sachi won.

Bolders

Always bloody 60 mins. If they want to see something different then how about 2 hours: we might get pies, cakes, etc.
But no, 1 hour so the judges don’t have to wait around too long and to guarantee that all we’ll ever get is ice cream and some quickly cooked protein with leaves.
Love how Matt was so anti-smear at Samira last night. Is he just over seeing skid marks on a plate after 10 years? Imagine how we feel.

Jayblossom

I don’t dislike Sashi but he’s not one of my favourites either. I do understand why the producers have kept him in ….. he plays the game. How do I know this? He is such a dreadful actor that it is super obvious that he is repeating the lines he’s been given but he does so with incredible enthusiasm.

Bolders

Yes agreed. I’m also willing to believe that the Jess was being promoted to “just say how old you are again.”

Jazzman

I love how Reece nonchalantly slaps the duck down on the bench. I have to say, even though I’m sick of granitas and mousse, the judges never seem to rattle him

Jazzman

The concept of fish loins is completely new to me

Jayblossom

I’m with you there Jazz.

Maz

Did you gice know that Samira is from Azerbaijan? We almost missed that fact.

Brussellsprout

Really?who knew?

Littlepetal

So Ben’s dish is not good enough but Jess chilli crab is elevated to fine dining. All I see is just another chilli crab like how chilli crab should be.

Jayblossom

These people! Honestly, I hope they are never in a situation where they experience real fear because they are constantly so scared in this competition. The consequences the stooges not liking your food are simply not that dire.

Jazzman

I would love to eat Kahn’s dish.

Maz

Jess, Samira, Ben are in the pressure test. Chloe played the apron.

Khanh wins the challenge.

Brussellsprout

This despite Chloe’s shameless homage to Gary’s masterclass ravioli, right down to the high dome!
The dish looked pretty rancid and she def made the right choice, even though I fear she would have sailed through regardless.

Jazzman

Poor old Reece. He just can’t hide his disappointment

brain dead dave

If this is the second time Only 19 has cooked crab, it’s hard to feel for her melodramatics and bawling.

If the little brat has watched Ma$terchef since the snow egg, she’d know crabs are seafood staples. Is it her IQ that is nineteen as well?

Littlepetal

Remember she is only 19! Doesn’t know what is porcini. She can cook something else.

Littlepetal

If like last year, next week is Finals week. Finale will be on Mon, 30 Jul

lulu

Welcome to MasterJess.
Always gets the front cooking bench. Always wears the big bow in the ponytail to accentuate youth (except she’s not 4 yrs old). Always puts on the tears, everyone has to hug her, a mothercraft nurse is called in to change her nappy.
What an actress.

Even the mother was channeling the Only 19 Look. I wonder if she taught her daughter to ‘get tasted.’ Ah showbiz.

Samira From Azerbaijan has to pull in some neighbour as a ‘loved one.’ The poor woman looked like she didn’t know what the hell she was doing there – and who’s Samira?

Reethe has taken over the mantle from HI as the resident serial killer … judging by the filthy look on his face when Khanh beat him. There was something in his pocket … but he wasn’t pleased to see him.

HeWhoHasNoName

Another MasterMeh episode.

Do you think 19 got tasted because the judges/producers were afraid of her mum? Would of loved for mamma19 to go to Gary and call him chubby.

So I’m confused… is GIL’s partner a partner or husband?? If just partner then she can’t be GIL.. as there is no Law in that relationship… phony!

And again GIL pulls out the unoriginal and reconstitutes someone else’s idea. (although Sashi did do that paste idea on his meat from Matt’s masterclass).

Khan and Sashi both scare me.. something about them both (fake) that I don’t like. Also don’t like Reethe still much either…. I think that’s what has made the slog of this series hurt as I tipped him to be first eliminated after that SPLAT in audition…. which is the clue… he’s the winner… a contestant who has grown so much from putting a SPLAT on his plate to now mastachef quality… even his comments last night to his buddy about how much better his dinner parties will be…

For the 10th series I think they’ll balance the genders in the final.. and I tip Reeth and GIL…. Reeth to be the best eva mastachef.

lulu

He’s her husband. But you have to say ‘partner’ now as the terms husband/wife/children are politically incorrect. Just ask Qantas.

Lola

The last seven contestants are very underwhelming.
I guess if I had a favourite it would be Ben.
No standout cooks this year.
In years past I enjoyed watching Billy, Matt, Adam and Dianne.

brussellsprout

I agree Lola. It is SO hard to choose someone to back. I like Ben – as a human being, etc and for refusing to kotow to judges all the time. But I don’t know if he’s a super strong cook and don’t really think he’s up there with a Billie or a Diana or an Adam. Mind you, other than that we have the dessert queens and the one trick ponies (i’m looking at you broth girl GIL) so the pickings are slim. I practically always like the look of Samira’s food but Sashi seems such a over-enunciator of a not good script that it is ruining my appreciation of his food. Khan I don’t mind, but don’t love! wow. it’s getting very difficult.

Bobi

Isnt it funny?. I don’t remember any of those names.
What’s memorable to one, not so much to another.

Von

I vaguely remember Diana, don’t remember Adam at all, but definitely remember Billlie. Billie is a nice, normal woman, talented in the kitchen, gave Matt a bit of stick once, and if I remember correctly, she actually went on to do an apprenticeship. She could be a chef by now. Most of the contestants have grandiose dreams of their own restaurant or cafe, but few seem willing to put in the work to get their dream from fantasy to reality.

Sara

I switched off before Shannon’s bit. Surprised to see that Khan won. Did they all take heed of his warning regarding size of dish for degustation menu – that would leave only very small portions for the three little pigs.
And I’m not keen on Sashi – can’t really think who I’d like to win.

Carole Morrissey

Well that kind of makes up for robbing Sashi of the super power last week. Glad he’s safe till finals week.
What is this bullshit cook something with a story? If I was told to do that I wouldn’t have a clue what to cook.
So that was a waste of the super power, but thank God it’s out of play now. I thought the idea of it was to save yourself in an elimination challenge if you didn’t think your dish was up to scratch. I would have thought she’d be so arrogant as to assume her dish would be picked for Shannon’s restaurant. And wasn’t that what Gary cooked in last week’s master class so technically if she’d won it would be HIS dish not hers?

Littlepetal

I think the judges were misleading to say winning the Mystery box will fast track you to Finals Wk.

Sashi and Khanh will have fight it out and then beat the guest chef to fast track to Finals wk.

Actually it is just like winning the immunty pin and if you are in elimination after the last challenge, you can use the pin and still get into finals week.

Carole Morrissey

Oh, thanks for that. I misunderstood them.

lulu

Hang on, does she still have the ‘power’ or was it a one-off?

Littlepetal

Its a one of. She has to surrender the power apron

Carole Morrissey

It was hilarious when Matt choked on the chilli. Someone on twitter said he should add more chilli & offer it to Gary & George.

Rhubarbara

At this point I’m convinced they’re just fucking with us. Another parfait/mousse/crumblewithshit from both, Jess AND Reece and they both get tasted? For the most uninspired dishes of the season? I am sick and tired of it, seriously.

And what happened with the superpower? Why did she use it? They did not give her an edit that made it look like she fucked up. And then she just shrugged and played it? Superweird. Not bad, but weird.

How cruel to tell Samira that her dish is gorgeous. yummy, tasty and what not and then put her in a pressure test because GIL played that stupid superpower. Now I’m starting to think that GIL played it to fuck with the others.

Don’t get me started with all the crying from Only19. I’m sick of it. And it will continue today, so she’s in no danger. THE YOUNGEST MASTERPET EVAH!!!

The only ones I can stand (barely) are Ben, Khan & Samira. I thought last season with the blond grinny girl and the whiskey girl sucked, but they had talented and versatile cooks. This is a bunch of uncreative, unimaginative boreheads. And I hate Gary and George with burning hot red hate whenever they open their filthy mouths – be it to talk or to shovel food in like they are fucking cavemen.

HeWhoHasNoName

I think GIL played the apron as she knew she was in the middle somewhere… it was guaranteed that Ben, and Jess were definitely going to elimination at that point and that Reeth and Cobra Kahn were safe. So she had to think she did better than Samira (which I don’t think she did), and deep down I think GIL knows she’s soooo lucky to be where she is she had to play it.

By the looks of it, she’s made a good choice as the ads for tonights challenge looks pretty difficult.
