MasterChef Australia – Kate Falls On Her Sword
Did Kate do the honourable thing by falling her sword and eliminating herself from MasterChef? I actually give her props for doing it. She said “I don’t want to take someone else’s dream away from them. I’m going to go home.”.
If I had been in Kate’s position I would have had no hesitation about voting for Sandra and probably would have derived some pleasure from it, but then maybe I have seen far to many seasons of Survivor.
Also when are the contestant’s going to wise up and start voting off the stronger contenders. Kate was never going to win the title so keep her on and vote off Sam or Tom. The excuse as why they were the weakest in the challenge could have been Sam tried to take over the leadership role so caused confusion or for Tom that he did all the shopping before coming back to drop off the ingredients hence shortening the amount of prep time the team had.
The mystery of the risotto was confusing Sam and Kate were implying 50 portions were unable to be sold, whereas Sandra said they were for sale. Did it matter the risotto was not up to scratch? I am sure it would have been fine for the crowd at the Royal Easter Show who would have been full of trans fat from their dagwood dogs.
Also who was the culprit who did not produce the dessert they had planned? That would have impacted on the amount of dollars the blue team raked in.
After making the decision, Kate said: “I think I stopped believing that I could win this and that I deserve to be here.”
Sam who has now lost one of his ally’s said: “I’m sorry to see her go. She’s young. She has huge potential but she is at peace with her decision and I’m proud of her.”
Back at home, Kate now plans to enrol in an international pastry school and is looking at Corden Bleu in Paris.
Finally as pointed out by commenters CG and RetroGirl on yesterday’s MasterChef Australia’s post there did appear to be a hickey or as we used to say love bite, on Sam’s neck. Isn’t he a bit old to have one I thought only 14 year olds gave and received them. If it was his wife is not going to be happy, but he should have been smart enough to wear a polo neck or cover up with foundation.
