Matt Preston Says MasterChef Australia Not Rigged
Matt Preston is responding to claims by MasterChef contestant Geni Papacostas that because of her age she would not have had any hope of winning the MasterChef Australia competition.
In an article in News.com.au based on a TV Week article states:
But Preston says the competition is fair and contestants are only judged on their cooking merits.
“George, Gary and I aren’t going to let anyone progress who can’t cook,” Preston told TV Week.
“It doesn’t matter about their age or cultural background is, or which state they come from.
“The only thing that stands in their way of winning is whether they can cook, and whether they have a clear vision of what they want to do after the show.”
The above quote of knowing what they want to do after the show would indicate that Chris Badenoch must be a red hot favourite to win as he has consistently said he wants to open a beer mason’s restaurant. But does this mean if you are the best cook and you are not really sure where you want to go with it you won’t win Season 1 of MasterChef Australia? That smells to me that a bit of rigging is going on.
