Masterchef – Brisbane and Perth Auditions
Tomorrow is the last night of auditions on Masterchef Australia, and that is probably a good thing, otherwise viewer audition fatigue could set in.
I know it is a reality tv show but in Perth when that 18 year old boy cut off the top of his finger did they really have to do a close up and then find the chopped off skin. Some of us were actually eating dinner.
He did cook a nice clam dish which impressed the judges and he did get through to Sydney. Eagle-eyed Make Me A Supermodel fans would have spotted third placed Courtney Chircop, you know the one who was on with Billy, greeting him when he came out with the white apron.
Tonight the auditions were set in Perth and Brisbane, and from the footage shown it would appear you had a better chance of getting through if you were a good looking female see Sarah Merino the spanish and half american cook who made the gnocchi, or the lady from Tweed Heads who cooked the passionfruit mango crumble, and the young law student from Perth.
Or have a hard luck story like the labourer from Mission Beach, who had driven 1500 kms, and had a deceased partner. Even though he killed (both literally and metaphorically), a magnificent piece of fish with strawberries they were always going to let him through.
Unfortunately they are not putting through much tottie for the female viewer. They had the opportunity to let through Zach whose sister got through with her tortellini. But maybe because he named his dish from some suburban chinese restaurant, his duck and gobble gobble sauce did not draw much praise from the judges.
One thing the judges do need to work on is some repartee between them, at the moment it is either being edited out or it is not happening.
Best dish- Bug and Sage Tortellini and Passionfruit mango apple crumble (because I love desserts)
Worst dish – Fish with strawberry and lime
