is jacques biscuit still about?
I'm watching it though.
have you watched any My Kitchen Rules?
what a total shower. it was meant to be good, too.
presuming this is good, is that the one with Lorraine Pascale?
the aussie one was pretty good because they were mainly lovely
in the UK one they're all horrible bellends and both judges are shit
seen a few bits of the Saffers and the Kiwi scumlords too. Only a few minutes here and there though.
and I think it's made me jaded
of the past winners of MC, see who the real proper bestest is
Mostly for the cameos from Tim and Squashed John Cusack.
Love that guy.
I saw Tim at Street Feast last year and had to restrain myself from running over and bear-hugging him. Can't wait till his restaurant opens.
not keen on Torode having to cook just so Greg can fawn over it
main problem with last night was irritating Jackie (?) who obviously isn't a vegetarian anymore. I reckpn the really good 21 yr old has had some pro assistance along the way - ONE HANDED QUINELLES!
nice to see all the old champions/finalists again although makes me realise how many years I've been putting the hours into this...
Even more so now that I've remembered she exists.
that 21 year old has DEFINITELY worked in a kitchen. Hope he gets found out and chucked out the competition in a x-factor style scandal. Mainly because I can't stop thinking about his weird hair.
Still watching, though. Not really found anyone to root for yet.
Never thought I'd say it, but I think I miss Kate Spicer????
Maybe he only turns into a prick when he's trying to out-prick other critics?
Love Jay Rayner and the speccy guy though.
are much better when they're the only critic in town.
weird gurning and horrendous puns both seem to be increasing exponentially with each passing episode
That 28 year old yesterday who was quite openly flirting with Gregg ('oooh i'm the eldest sister so I was always naughty *coy look*') just cos she was a pretty shite cook.
Basically any time Gregg talks to a female it unsettles me.
did you see 'gregg wallace supermarket secrets' on bbc1 last week? excellent, excellent footage of gregg bantering with some lad at a sainsbury's baking training day.
and plum dumpling made with mashed potato, LOVED Carl
past winner with a beard has stacked it on...looked like he was struggling to sit down.
The more I think about it
Chilli pork chop territory
shes obv had some work done to her teeth/ mouth or something
But so fuckibg funny at the same time.
vomited laughing at the 'lemon tart' on last night's episode
Somehow it did: http://instagram.com/p/mqW8iysJvK/
inside some weird looking batter with MASHED POTATO
So fast and well paced.
Even if he does remind me of Roose Bolton's bastard.
Love her, she's great.
Just thought you ought to know
but theo more
Far, far too cocky.
This is good, especially the toque bit:
She was okay but fish and fruit... my god. They always go on about that never working and someone always decides to go for it...
PS: why do I watch Masterchef again? It couldn't be more Groundhog. I'm sure there used to be more anticipation for the tasting bit?
presumably because he wanted her to go through so he could 'do a Snowdon' on her...
and it was the plum and mash one luckily. I still can't believe someone made that on masterchef :D
but Masterchef does keep chugging on a bit too much. There always seems to be a series on, it runs pretty much every day when it is on. Maybe I am confusing it with Great British Menu. Things like the test where they get these poor sods to make some obscure dish then pull faces like someone has farted while they inevitably fuck it up - just cut that out I reckon.
especially as it's always an asian type dish, I never cook chinese/thai stuff as I don't like it - think it is just so Torode can show off and mutter about how people can't make pastes
You've got a lot of spices on the bench there Bob!!
Yes Greg, that's because I'm making a curry.
his mystery box make me wish for end of humanity. He all but flutters his eyelashes at him.
Which is all the time
yeah he was really dishing it out. I don't know why they do it, it is not like being talked to like a piece of shit is a great way of inspiring people to greatness.
cos Michel Roux Jr had a funny turn and decided to raise his standards discriminately cos he thought Adam was his son. Kinda glad he didn't win now though.
Went all moody and depressed when he had to cook with that arty Italian chef.
hate seeing him fail
And is just me or do you double take every time the contestants' ages come up - the Masterchef cameras are not kind...
As if that twat with all the ridiculous equipment is 30 years old!
Only just saw wed last night. Why does Greg still wear that cap? I am a big Ping fan, mainly because of her name. Nice to see the young lad (James) utilising his quinelles at a top level.
Dyou see how smug he looked before he presented his undercooked neck.
robot boy's been pushing his luck for a while now. They're blatantly keeping him in the hope he'll stop fucking up. That said that piece of neck looked foul.
Wolverine's the favourite I'd say, despite all the fawning over Ping and teary businesswoman.
but his Tom Hanks In A Crisis face makes me want him to stay so I can watch him implode some more. "I'm 30, no really"s neck looked like an animal / combine harvester accident. Nasty. Greg is clearly contemplating 'turning' for Wolverine, so you're probably right.
what happened to that Greek guy? Thought he was going to be pretty good.
Well, 'lost it' is a bit far, but he didn't do too well under the pressure. That combined with a less than perfect dish in the next section meant he was out.
I liked that he didn't even know the word quenelle but could cook pretty damn well.
Proppa unpretentious grub. Danny would have fackin' loved it.
Seeing that Michel Roux isn't allowed to do it after the potatoes ad thing, I wonder if they'll get someone else. It just won't be the same without him and Monica. I hope it isn't Marcus Wareing.
potato ad thing?
Tell me Roux wil be back. Tell me that now.
Last sentence there "A seventh series of MasterChef: The Professionals will be broadcast in the autumn, with a new presenter."
So it is back. If not Wareing, who else?
The BBC said he had to stop them, or he couldn't come back. He said he's been working with the potato company for years, and his contract with them was more important to him than his contract with the BBC. So no more Roux. And quite possibly no more Monica either, as she's his head chef.
to the core.
but I have a bad feeling...
Presumably Monica's free to do what she likes since she doesn't shill spuds herself.
It just depends to what extent Roux is persona non grata - they'll have to keep mentioning him if they have her.
it just boils down to a commercial issue that they couldn't resolve. Roux isn't persona non grata, he's just unable to be under contract to the BBC as long as he's touting the taters. I'm sure he'd have no problem with Monica stepping up and probably he'd even still be able to come in and be the guest "angry chef judge" on the odd round.
But I don't think he'll be back even as a guest judge:
"MasterChef is sad to announce, after a very happy relationship with Michel Roux Jr as one of the judges on the Professional series, that he will no longer be appearing on the BBC due to a conflict in commercial interests"
What's that about then?
but Micky R could.
The room is heaving with people with endorsements that would contravene the BBC code. Presumably though none of them is paid to turn up to that.
I'd be very surprised to see Roux not turn up to one of them. "Not appearing on the BBC" just means he was involved in a couple of programmes. Come to think of it Food and Drink is going to be (even more) awful now, if they carry on with it. Presumably they'll get Tom Kerridge in to say "Heh heh heh" a lot and then cook chips every week.
Was amusing the first week when he said 'Well they didn't like much of the plate but I think it's great so hey...' but after a few rounds, it gets pretty tiresome.
Playing hmm let's see... a greengrocer?
I have no intention of watching Eastenders to find out.
Why can't everyone be Tim?
she's the best.
of general smugness tonight - glad robot boy is back on form. Ping will win.
Also, what a boring group of people to put together on television. Imagine the only thing you have in common being 'liking history' and just trying to out-fact each other all night 😴
Still don't think any of them are good enough to win tbh.
also, Ping and robot man joint winners
perhaps if they got the food wrong, they would have been beheaded!
Repeat 16 times.
and followed it up with 'and that's a FACT' in a really petulant voice. I wonder if they' been implying he makes up the stuff in his books.
Ping is the sound a microwave makes
where all the food is microwaved
Liked that shot of them through the doors all hugging. Like that bit at the end of 'It could happen to you' when the photographer sees two young lovers through the window.
over the hair gel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They have upped the shabs and bants factor this series.
He is a dick.
EXCEPT on masterchef. weird.
Miraculous improvement fortunate enough to coincide with it being the final round!
