Yawn.

Littlepetal

I will watch since there is nothing on TV. Don’t think there will be any dishes I will be looking forward to cook because these cooks/chefs will go overboard with their craziness

brain dead dave

Some of this year’s dishes:

Isolation Ice Cream
Caramelised Corona
Virus Veal
Sanitation Salad
Fever Fritters.
Fennel Funeral.
Paella Perish.
Quiche Quarantine

Maz

You must be happy that Skye is back?

brain dead dave

Hasn’t started yet, but thank you, Maz. What a pleasant surprise. A light in the black.

Maz

Oops,my bad. It is Sarah.

brain dead dave

It was good while it lasted. I’ll stop crying soon.

Liberty

Did they preview the first episode in Tassie? A friend of mine lives there and reckons it was on Friday night – not the 7 minute preview.

Bobi

I am eager and excited.
I am tuned in 20 minutes early, I have a glass of green ginger wine, I have a blanket over my knee and I’ve put the dog to bed.
Alright, I also have a good book on hand and my iPad is geared to playing a game. There will be repetition, and dwelling on stuff that just puffery, I won’t recognise half these people and the other half will be just annoying.
But this is the set up so that we can enjoy later episodes.
Advertising is at saturation point, and I am assuming that those highlighted have already been evicted. Why else would they be at home?
My only hope is that they don’t drag it out too long.
And the judges keep quiet and stay in the background. Please.

Littlepetal

Its a long long intro

brain dead dave

An hour and twenty minutes coming up.

Littlepetal

They behave like they don’t know who the judges are!!!

Maz

I know…particularly the history of Bendy and Courtney co-hosting a show with Andy.

Justbrian

Favouritism will definitely on the card.

Bobi

A lot of playing up to the camera by the contestants.
Poh is doing way too much to get her face on tv. She can go home now, as in immediately.
I love how focused some of them are. I’ve always loved Reynold. He was robbed.

brain dead dave

Poh used to live near me. Her smile is a major put on.

You ought to see her resting bitch face.

Maz

And the judges…Melissa is channeling Nigella hard.

brain dead dave

Making her breasts bounce individually, yep, that’s Nigellaesque.

Justbrian

Very hard! 😂

Maz

The red silicon domes are back!!!

Maz

Laura has spent the last six years perfecting crying on cue.

brain dead dave

Six years to hone the sob story.

Littlepetal

Blue Band-Aids in fashion!

Maz

And the blue gloves.

brain dead dave

” I love my kid so much” ( “I’ll leave them for six months”)

Maz

Think that is now known as self isolating.

Bobi

Gordon just told Poh to watch her language.
Sometimes I really like this guy.

brain dead dave

Gordon expects a “Ma$terchef level dish” tonight. He’s easily impressed.

The crying already. The fake muzak. Same as it ever was.

Littlepetal

Jess still crying after 3 years

Justbrian

But but but she’s only 21!!!! Ffs hope I don’t hear that this season

Brussellsprout

It will be mentioned. A LOT. I am braced for it.

brain dead dave

I’m watching the encore and am starting to think Jess is pretending to cry. I’m looking for actual tears and seeing nothing roll down her cheeks. Now, I realize this is a valuable strategy on Ma$terchef, but you gotta lift your crying game, Jess. You’re 21 now. Throw some life experience bullshit into it to sell it.
All these CSI type shows are on it, you have to see real tears ……..or it’s simulation.
I love it when $chlock Zonfrilllo says ” Just to be clear~ there is no favouritism” LOL. Just to be clear.

brain dead dave

Give Reynold the pin now. I’m half hour behind but he’s a dead cert, surely.

The other contestants are shitting themselves. Dani, for example. Sweaty Callum.

Now comes the backloading with ads.

Juz

Jock and Andy, like the audience, would be happy to forget everyone else and just watch a show of Reynold quietly making strawberry pebbles

Juz

Just saying hi. Not reading comments as Mr 8 is feeling a bit off and I am still trying to get him to sleep

brain dead dave

Hi to you, too. Make him watch this ….he’ll be asleep in no time.

Looks like Dani’s crab is going to be slaughtered.

brain dead dave

Oh no. She sweated like a hog into that dish.

Juz

If I let him stay up to watch reality TV he’d say “Where’s Jeff? Where’s Rob”. Survivor is the only show he is allowed to stay up for

Von

It’s just starting here. Damn, the intro is going on forever, showing every promo I’m already sick of, all in a row. Get on with it.

brain dead dave

You’lll get hardly an a d for half an hour , then they start kicking in. Long night.

They’ve pretended nearly all the food is “restaurant quality”

I don’t care. Just don’t cry or sweat into the food.

Liberty

Oh gawd, I forgot how much Dani annoyed me.

brain dead dave

Oh , me too. Dani makes me sick.

Without Gordon this show would be on a ventilator, Von, below.

Juz

I am surprised at how much she is making the edit, while others are ignored, given the poor viewer reaction to her previously

Brussellsprout

I had, sadly, NOT forgotten just how much Dani annoyed me. It is painfully clear in my recollection.

Von

Good idea to have Gordon on for a week. Might let the new judges settle in and find some personality. Who’s the dude in the hat? Why is Tessa’s stupid face on so often? Bitching fest, here I come.

Maz

Chris from Season one?

brain dead dave

Yes. Chris Badenoch, I think.

Bobi

I’ve always thought he was over rated.
Meat, and then then some more meat, and would you like meat with that.

brain dead dave

The restaurant he was involved with went pork belly up. Twice bankrupt. Tax trouble. This is what Ma$terchef is all about. Everyday people.

Brussellsprout

He always wears an unhygienic hat and would drink a lot of beer. In the past we were not keen on his grubby hat!
Didn’t he marry/hook up with one of the really pretty girls as well?

Justbrian

It’s been 11 years since Poh was on Masterchef but she aged like 22 years.

brain dead dave

Funny someone ` a female ,told me exactly the same thing last night. It must be “the stress” they all whined about tonight.

Justbrian

She hasn’t aged well.

brain dead dave

Poh had a a senior moment and forgot a crucial alament of her dish.

Littlepetal

If Poh didn’t mention about the chilli, will the judges think its need chilli to tie everything together. Its a soup, not a spicy soup. I

Juz

Well she is 47. I think most people thought she was younger when she was on the show

brain dead dave

BULL$HIT!!!

Worst episode of Ma$terchef I’ve ever seen.

Maz

Favourtism…good old Masterchef….only way to get Dani to top 12…

Littlepetal

Cook a finale dish and the ‘crap’ won.

Bobi

Okay. Here’s my take.
I loved how calm and confident the three dessert people were. I can’t comment on Laura’s – it just looked like white ice – but the other two looked amazing and were clearly very technically difficult.
Laura is going to shine again, particularly in anything Italian, and I suspect there will be favouritism. How can he not help it.
The other two will, obviously, do amazing desserts again and again. And again. There may be issues on other plates but there will be no doubt that they are head and shoulders above the others in the dessert department.
If we start out with awarding a dessert, the show is going to become very repetitive and boring. We have seen that before.
The immunity pin can become a poison chalice. If this is Danni’s pre-prepared dish and she was gross and sweaty and stressed, it is downhill from here for her.
And the judges would have taken all of that into account. Most of them are not stupid and this is scripted for the viewing public.
Calm people do not make for glued-to-our-screens television.
However, I still think we have seen our winner in that small group. Well, not Danni, obviously. But nevertheless…

Littlepetal

I remembered Amelia has always been quiet. They won’t let her win.
Reynolds from Day 1 (in his first season) is already outstanding with his skills. Now he is even better with the operation of his dessert bar.

I admired Andy for doing the hard yard to be a fully qualified chef. But in his intro that he now owns 4 restaurants is a stretch. He became a co owner (part of 6) of 3 Blue Ducks when they already have 3 restaurants.

brain dead dave

I’ll bet Andy doesn’t own four restaurants now. I doubt he could run four hot dog stands.

Ma$terchef and the “f ” word on display last night. “Favouritism”

Brussellsprout

I liked Emelia and Andy. But she is quietly competent so how long do we expect her to last with that?

Lola

I couldn’t get past the introduction. It was so long!
Will try again with the repeat. Hoping Reynold will win. Poh and Danni are still annoying.

Justbrian

Ffs you can get a decent curry dish anywhere! The judges changed but one thing for sure favouritism continues in the Masterchef kitchen.
The producers are very smart, didn’t want to risk the rating with the new judges hence bringing back “ all stars” at least the audience get some familiar faces.

brain dead dave

The problem intensifies when those familiar faces keep cooking familiar faeces.

Marie

Nooooo!!!!! Not Slimy Simon for another season. Kill me now.
Just started watching it, saw him and my eyes twitching…

Brussellsprout

I was gutted. I hadn’t realised he was going to be on.

Smythe

Dani wins the only immunity pin…..ROTFL.
Dani’s curry vs Reynold’s very complex, interesting and technical dessert and they give it to Dani….more ROTFL.

Brussellsprout

Yes. Twitter was completely confident Reynold had it in the bag. As was I.
Did NOT expect Dani’s curry to take the pin. Is that the way they are guaranteeing she stays??

Smythe

I knew that they were going to call up Dani as one of the top 4 after raving about her curry and when it came to Dani vs Reynold I thought back to Dani in season 3 and her being awarded a pin (undeservedly) and just had the feeling they would give her the pin. Granted none of us tasted the food but not believable that she got the one and only pin.

Yes, I do think it’s their way of keeping her around longer than she should be there just like in season 3.

Brussellsprout

I can’t help but wonder if the judges’ criteria of “what we would like to eat again and again” was known to the contestants, who were busy cooking their finale dish?

brain dead dave

CH 10 want Dani because she’s a high energy type we’d see on The Price Is Right. Like Smythe , I recall Dani being fitted up with ammunity pins in the past and had the same dread that calm, collected Reynold would get shat on by the producers. Give Dani six ammunity pins, she couldn’y win unless it’s a sweating or ego puffing competition.

“what we would like to eat again and again” ~yeah, that could be anything from Pringles to Tim Tams. Aren’t we learning heaps? Four nines are thirty six.
