First up Masterchef. Or should I say Professional Masterchef, perhaps not considering how 'professional' these fellas were.
Different format from normal and no shouty John Torode (the real JT) instead being replaced by some mystery woman who apparently works for Micheal Roux Jr. First round the contestants had to spatchcock a chicken and then make a lemon thing in front of the watchful eyes of mystery woman and an more fatter than usual Greg. They pretty much all ballsed it up, one bloke disected the chicken whilst another couple butchered it and not in a good way. They then made the lemon thing with only one managing a decent effort, honourable mention to bloke who is in severe denial about being bald making a complete hash, and not in a good way, of absolutely everything. He was booted out.
Next round and mystery woman was replaced by her boss. The remaining 3 contestants had to make two dishes with a fish, Sea Bream I think. All pretty rubbish again but highlights go to the chef teacher bloke who messed up his ravioli so made a sea bream omlette with pasta. Dear God I feel sorry for people in care homes.
I think it's on again tonight.
Next up was Daredevil, some documentary following a fearless young man who has a penchant for close proximity flying/flying squirrel impersonating thing. Having seen Man on Wire and the documentary about the other french bloke who climbs buildings unaided, sometimes dressing up as spiderman, I was expecting another awe inspiring, self depricating, philosphy quoting wonder of a man doing wonderous things. Nope, this bloke was a complete melt and was nothing more than a spoilt little brat. I was hoping he would get arrested or seriously damage himself but unfortunately that didn't happen though the footage of his friend flying into that bridge was something else. He achieved his goal of close proximity flying down a mountain in Switzerland, the footage was great but he was still a gimper.
