Masterchef - Entire Season Thread - Spoilers for aired episodes only.

Well, there probably isn't enough interest to start a new thread each week, so here's a whole season thread.

There are already some rivalries starting up. Is there ANYONE that Krissie doesn't hate?

It's too early to form opinions of who I'd like to see win just yet, but there's certainly an interesting mix - as usual.

Interesting to see people being sent home before they'd even finished cooking their lamb dishes. I'm sure it's prettu easy for the judges to form an opinion of the level of competence from watching their technique to that point.

Natasha seems like a B, but maybe she is just very competitive.

I think she should've chosen the cheese, that seemed to be a harder item based on how they described it.

Hopefully pottie mouth Krissie makes an early exit. If this program decays to the usual Ramsay cussing contest, I'm out. They used to find some very intelligent, talented cooks who would greatly benefit from this experience. As stated before, the screamers will never rise above the pizza dough line. The puffers corner will signal my exit from this.

I found it funny that Krissie didnt understand how Natasha could hate her without knowing her but Krissie can hate Howard.

Didn't Krissie say she hated Natasha too? Drama, drama, drama....

Krissie started hating Howard after he was talking SugarHoneyIceTea about her to the Chefs.

Ugh - I'm with you on the Krissi drama. I'd like to see her out of there next but I have a feeling that her drama will keep her there for a while. She nauseates me.

I guess they have to have one asshat there every season.

ITA that she should have chosen the cheese. I kept saying that during the scene and was surprised she chose, probably, the easiest one.

I thought they were kind of hard on the guy who made the salad with the langostines plopped on top. The critiques could have easily gone the other way, praising him for making the main ingredient "the star".

I like Gordon Ramsey on this show. He seems toned down. I gave up on Hell's Kitchen last year as it seemed they weren't even really trying to cast good chefs anymore. They just want people who will scream and fight. Not interested.

yeah
this show is so much better

hopefully they (the producers) will keep it going this way and not go for the "reality" of bickering, backstabbing, betrayal that's on so many other shows

Natasha bothers me more than Krissi. She kept saying how beautiful she was. Ugh.

Haven't seen the second hour from 5/29 yet but a few of the comments in this thread worry me... the mean girl/gossipy/talking head stuff.
This show should stay above manufactured drama- that's what elevated it and made it classy.
If it sinks into typical reality show edit monkey hell IMO it won't be nearly as good as the first three seasons.

Didn't he have some stupid nickname for himself that no one else used? Like "The Quiet Storm" or something like that?

He was "The Tool" at our house. Natasha is very annoying, but Krissi is right there. I hope they don't overplay the drama BS. Yeah right.

Oh yeah, Ryan. blech!

Methinks that this Krissi woman is going to give him a run for his money in terms of jerkwadishness.

I, too, hope this show doesn't get taken over with the drama. That is what seems to sell, however, so I am concerned that that is exactly where it's headed.

My wife and I caught these two episodes. We got mildly excited but I'm wondering if this show will/does turn into yet another line cook for a catering business show? It bugs me to no end how much shows like Top Chef focus on creating a meal for half of the state of california in 2 hours or the like. Does this show tend to do that or does it stick more closely to one dish for 3 judges?

IIRC, there are some 'team' challenges now and then where the cooks have to cater to a large group of people who end up voting for the 'team' with the best tasting menu. The members of the losing team are the only ones considered for elimination, usually.

I like the way Gordon Ramsay treats the contestants. The abusive language that he uses to state contestants make to watch Masterchef.

I liked at the school kids lunch challenge: Joe, when trying to decide which team had the better meal, says "...it could be one...or the other." Really? LOL

I'm glad the guy (still don't know everyone's names yet) kicked butt with the cupcakes sans mixer and Luca even gave him kudos.

Something about this season is off-putting for me. Haven't quiet put my finger on it. Maybe it's the obligatory villain (Krissi) or Joe's faux anger. But for the most part I still in.

Never thought cupcakes would be so challenging! But I did feel Luca was right in choosing Jordan. But he did pull it off.
