So Bri never ever taste tests her meat/fish/poultry dishes?
She is a vegetarian. If she is tasting it then she is cheating.
That was a hell of a lot of eggs in the pantry. And i loved their reaction to it.
my feelings exactly
the last 2 years I used to rush home from work to make sure I didn't miss a thing
but this season, I haven't even watched the last 4 episodes
they ruined a really great show
I only started watching last season. But lately I've really gotten into the show. I hadn't planned on watching it Wednesday night since it was already late, but when I realized that it was the show with contestants that got kicked off, I ended up watching it and being up past midnight.
Maybe I should watch one of the earlier seasons for comparison. But I really like this season.
Personally though you would have to pay me a boatload of guaranteed money to ever consider being on any of these reality shows.
I am interested in the MasterChef Junior promo that ran during the show. Thing 4 would have loved to try out.
did anyone else think nasty judge kinda gave it away with his comment about the asparagus?
'whoever cooked this asparagus really knew what they were doing"
Being totally NOT a kid person, I have no interest in the kiddie version. But I hope it's enjoyable for those who decide to tune in.
I don't plan on watching the MC jr show, but I will still set up an SP for it. So if I am in the mood to check it out, at least it will be there.
I'm fed up with the manufactured drama on this show(and other reality shows) though I keep watching BBC America's Masterchef has drama that simply comes from will the chef mess up, will Michel Roux and Monica like the food? No phony interference from producers.
Just finished watching MC:The Professionals 2012 season and loved it. Now watching the 2011 season. Love the show. Fabulous food.
I'm watching Masterchef UK: The Professionals on BBCA, whatever season is currently airing on BBCA, and it is a very good show. No drama between contestants (at least not in the four episodes I've seen). There is very little interaction between contestants. Of course, there is no Gordon Ramsey, and it isn't on Fox in the US. It is about cooking, not artificial drama.
I wonder how different it will be from the adults version - for starters, will they have an opening episode where kids are told how bad their cooking is?
Trying to make the kids' version of American Idol a "friendly" show is one of the things that ruined it - not only did they not show any "bad" kids' singers (the first episode was pretty much a montage of rehearsals, stage mothers complaining that the producers don't know talent, and even one scene where they show a car being stopped in the parking lot and told that they have reached their limit for the day, only for one of the parents to turn to the child and say, "Start singing! This is your only chance to be heard on TV!"), but once they got to the final 10, rather than eliminate one singer a week, they took the singer with the most votes, put him/her "into the group" (there were five winners, who would perform as a group, although they rarely did before they broke up), and continued with the remaining contestants the following week, so they would not have to put any of the kids through having to be "that week's loser".
I've watched the 2012 season and am just about to finish the 2011 version; it is, indeed a fantastic show. I lovel Michel and Monica - just serious enough but still with pleasant and engaging personalities. Gregg Wallace is a big ol' marshmallow who loves everything, but he knows his food too, and he's hilarious.
Also watching Celebrity MasterChef UK 2013 via magical means with Gregg and John Torode. Not nearly as serious but still loads of fun. Both make MasterChef USA look absolutely ridiculous (but I still watch, what can I say?).
Isn't "MasterChef Professionals" basically "Hell's Kitchen"??
I'm not a cook at all, but it sure seemed like a bunch of the eggs that *passed* didn't look very good. I mean, they always spaz about presentation, and many of them just looked bad -- yolk not in the 'center' of the white, etc. (I think the presentation of food is relatively unimportant, I care about how it TASTES. e.g. mix a bunch of different Chinese food together, and it looks gross.. but often tastes great!)
FTR: It's not Masterchef Professionals, it's just Masterchef.
Also, the challenge was to make a perfectly cooked egg, not necessarily a 'picture perfect' egg. I doubt ANY professional chef could get the yolk in the center of every egg s/he cooked, let alone the home cooks in this show.
The rejected eggs were disqualified not because the yolk was in the wrong place, but because they were under or over cooked, too high a heat, etc.
The UK has three versions: MasterChef, MasterChef: The Professionals, and Celebrity MasterChef.
I know that, but mattack was specifically talking about the US version, which is what my comment was aimed at.
Say what you will about Krissy, but she hasn't let the fact that she is perceived as white trash intimidate her in any way- she just keeps on going.
Whether she is just that confident or is simply putting up a great front is debatable- I don't know her so think it could go either way.
I have to say that I admire her "don't give a shoot" attitude toward the other more refined contestants. All the scorn could have easily derailed a more tender soul. I'm not saying I like her but she doesn't offend me on a personal level like, say Omarosa.
At any rate, I haven't laughed that hard at a TV show since the cheese wheels went rolling down the hill on The Amazing Race. Krissy's pure glee during her attempts to screw over the others was hilarious- like a wicked witch cackling up there.
And I'm making that potato dish of hers this weekend!.
Yeah, but my point is that with the U.S. versions, Hell's Kitchen is professionals and Masterchef is home cooks.. I can't think of examples off the top of my head, but I swear they sometimes have similar challenges too.
