MasterChef Australia – Flapping Fish and Delightful Delicacies
Finally some action from Hong Kong with the MasterChef contestant’s having to wrestle a fish to kill it. Julie had particular trouble. “It’s in a tub this big, I should be able to catch it,” she said. After having a bit of a sniffle she finally found her inner Grizzly Adams and butchered it.
George Calombaris was effusive in his praise “You should be proud of yourself”. She at this point was probably also anxious that a PETA protest was going to turn up on set and she would have to contend with nude people running around calling her a killer. George and Gary would love the distraction of a few naked women running around, but alas they had to satisfy themselves with Justine’s breast, which they perved on as they asked her how she was going in the challenge.
Tonight the five contestants were split up into two challenges, Andre, Julie and Justine were on the Rainbow fish challenge, and Chris and Sam were sent to the Langham Hotel to make high tea.
The twist which was not a surprise was Julia and Lucas were back. The producers had obviously thought it would be totally unfair if they missed the overseas trip, therefore they were back in the show for one episode only.
Julia was up against Sam and Chris. They had to make Key Lime Meringue Pie, Lavender Creme Brulee, and Raspberry and Chocolate Mille Feille. The prize for Sam and Chris if they won would be to be in beat the chef challenge, and for Julia just the satisfaction that winning against Pete Evans was no fluke.
Julia did show she was at a disadvantage of being ‘taken out’ of the competition so early, when she was in tears because she was not used to the pressure of the time restraint, this will go against her in the final week.
Matt Preston who lasciviously licked his fingers was judge with show host Sarah Wilson. For a moment I thought Sam was starting to peak at the right time of the competition, but was pipped at the post byJulia.
Lucas who was out wrestling fishes and not the guest chinese chef Jackie Chan, was not able to stop Julie from beating him. Which was just as well, because if Lucas had won there would have been no episode tomorrow night as there would have been no one to beat the chef or as it appears to be the chef’s favourite pupil.
Again I thought Lucas and Julia were given shrift they were barely able to down a glass of champagne before they were hustled out of the hotel room. Hopefully after the huggy farewell shots were taken they were allowed back in to socialise. And yes I had noticed Justine had perched herself beside Lucas who was looking like he had put on weight.
