OPEN POST: MasterChef Australia – It’s Christmas Time


1 TDK { 07.05.09 at 8:47 pm }

Andre – “I believe in my sausage..”


2 TDK { 07.05.09 at 8:48 pm }

Sam’s presentation is shit.

3 TDK { 07.05.09 at 8:50 pm }

Chris’s sausage looks like a dog pile of shit.

4 CG { 07.05.09 at 8:53 pm }

Did you see Gary’s attempt at giving Poh some ‘seductive eyes’ when he bit into her suasage? and a round of applause from him and George (and very reluctantly, Matt) afterwards…give it a break guys.

5 CG { 07.05.09 at 8:54 pm }

and yes, one would surmise Sam does have a little sausage…lets ask Kate!

6 CG { 07.05.09 at 8:55 pm }

and the winner of the weiner challenge is… surprise surprise…POH-O-Coaster! GMAFB.

7 TDK { 07.05.09 at 8:56 pm }

Not sure if it’s the same one, but I saw Garry’s eye glancing Poh whilst he tasted her sausage – and I thought do we need to see that? What was the point in him doing that and use seeing him doing that?

8 CG { 07.05.09 at 8:57 pm }

While I understand Poh partnering Chris with Sam in hopes Chris will lose… If Poh were smart she would have paired Chris and Justine…because if they lost one of them would go. If Chris/Sam loses the chances are Sam will go…

9 CG { 07.05.09 at 8:59 pm } distracted…can anyone let me know what third set of ingredients were ?

10 TDK { 07.05.09 at 9:01 pm }

Good point regarding strategy CG.

Poh’s laugh is a little over the top; she puts all her energy into pulling her face as tight as it can stretch. LOL

11 TDK { 07.05.09 at 9:02 pm }

LOL – I got distracted too.

12 CG { 07.05.09 at 9:03 pm }

Well clearly th teams had times to think about what they were going to cook even though it wasn’t meant to look that way..Chris said, “Sam and I were organised, went into the pantry and crossed things off our list…” Whomever is editing the show needs to be replaced next season. Between giving away future eliminations, shooting what are supposed to be single Maserclass sessions with people in different clothes, etc. the editing is really amateur.

13 CG { 07.05.09 at 9:04 pm }

….arghhh…come here my little whench…let me taste your juicy sausage…were is sourkraut when you need him/her?

14 CG { 07.05.09 at 9:13 pm }

I am not sure J&J’s salmon is properly cooked… and I hope P&A lose due to Andre’s lasagne…and the Poh-O-Coaster comes off the rails tomorrow night…

15 Jacqui { 07.05.09 at 9:14 pm }

It was pretty obvious that poh would win the challenge. I think Chris should have for presentation!

16 TDK { 07.05.09 at 9:16 pm }

They have to stop working to actually tell them what they’re doing.
I the viewer don’t really care for judges asking contestants what they’re doing – narrate over it.
A minute may actually be a big cost when they’re needing every seconds they can find.

17 CG { 07.05.09 at 9:21 pm }

ooops, was wrong…Chris’ salmon was undercooked!

18 TDK { 07.05.09 at 9:25 pm }

Poh – nice, two nice dish in a roll.

19 CG { 07.05.09 at 9:25 pm }

So no one else tastes the crappy lasagne and will Poh-ster make it thru based on her chestnut balls?

Two teams to the pressure test…not just one team competing against each ohter! If two teams has to be C&S and P&A.

20 CG { 07.05.09 at 9:27 pm }

TDK: yes, two winning dishes in a row for Poh: a sausage and balls. was she told to bring the sexy-act as a condition of her gaining reentry to the competition?

21 TDK { 07.05.09 at 9:27 pm }

CG – now that you put them together.. LMAO

22 CG { 07.05.09 at 9:35 pm }

so will one or two go in pressure test tomorrow? if next week is finals week they need to eliminate quite a few this week otherwise final is going to be a joke.

23 TDK { 07.05.09 at 9:37 pm }

They said just one will go.

24 NC { 07.05.09 at 9:40 pm }

wonder how they’re gonna eliminate so many this week. it MUST be time for Sam to go home, right? Please, even HE’s sick of being in elimination

25 TDK { 07.05.09 at 9:42 pm }

I think he’s mentally given up too.

26 TDK { 07.05.09 at 9:44 pm }

Elimination on steroids.
One per day.

27 Kyvyny { 07.05.09 at 9:52 pm }

Watching Justine and Julie giving their talk to cameras about feeling out of it, they should really mix it in with the other contestants otherwise they always keep playing the same hand.

If they’re not talking to the camera about how they feel like they’re in the bottom lot, then they are in the bottom lot.

28 melissa rayne { 07.05.09 at 9:53 pm }

What shame Tom was eliminated because of bad luck not guessing an ingredient in last weeks ‘s ‘smell off’. What a rip when Sam got to stay. He just isn’t up to the standard of the others.

29 Injera { 07.05.09 at 9:53 pm }

So… difficult…

I really want Sam to go, but would love to see the last of Poh. At this stage, I’m with whoever suggested a Sam win, just to complete the mockery that this has turned into!

30 Jacqui { 07.05.09 at 10:08 pm }

Carrie made fun of George just now on Rove!

31 Wurstsemmel { 07.05.09 at 10:11 pm }

Of course, it could be wurst, Poh could have won. This show should be renamed Mastersleaze… From Sam’s poor lickle sausage to Gary’s suggestive tasting of the Pohsage and the Poh affair is back on… George could hardly contain himself….thank goodness he did, this being family viewing and all – I’m sure Sourkraut will have plenty to say on that.

Notice how Chris is such a poor loser?

32 Injera { 07.05.09 at 10:22 pm }

The editing is alienating. All the ridiculous post-challenge “in the moment” commentary is truly grating.

The applause for Poh was particularly bizarre… Nice way to maintain your objectiveness, judges.

33 Wurstsemmel { 07.05.09 at 10:25 pm }

With all the sleaziness going on someone had to get the clap

34 Injera { 07.05.09 at 10:30 pm }

Wurstsemmel – brilliant!

35 Injera { 07.05.09 at 10:31 pm }

Hadn’t occurred to me before now that the mystery box wurst challenge would be close to your heart, Wurstsemmel! What – ahem – sausauge would you have like to see?

36 sourkraut { 07.05.09 at 10:40 pm }

Mrs kraut told me she would make Lorena Bobbitt look like a saint if i made any phallic sausage jokes tonight

37 sourkraut { 07.05.09 at 10:42 pm }

Kell Day-Knight come back, all is forgiven. Yes that’s noice yes unususal

38 Injera { 07.05.09 at 10:42 pm }

sourkraut – those sausages would give a rabbi nightmares.

39 sourkraut { 07.05.09 at 10:52 pm }

What happens if they explode?
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAArrrrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhh Mrs K put down that knife, help help…..there will be a slight delay in transmissions while running restorations are carried out with Chris’ sausage skewers
See you at the later blog , but probably in a higher pitched voice

40 Wurstsemmel { 07.05.09 at 11:04 pm }

I think tonight might just have about killed any lust for wurst, Injera… Seeing Chris and Andre blowing the intestine nearly resulted in my involuntarily replicating Andre’s lasagne. Yes, I had salmon for dinner

41 Kyvyny { 07.05.09 at 11:38 pm }

Does anyone else pop their snags? Or do you all manage to cook them without them bursting. Then again, popping them while they’re on the cook gives them that bit of oozing of fat into the pan.

42 VTY { 07.05.09 at 11:41 pm }

Melissa, the judges never interest in taking back Tom and Poh. The re-entry was mainly set up for Justine to come back.

Gary and George fell in love with Justine, and channel ten need her popularity ratings.

43 Reality Raver { 07.06.09 at 12:09 am }

These comments are hilarious. Recap coming sorry for delay. Wurstsemmel – with all that sleaze someone has to get the clap is fantastic.

44 Wurstsemmel { 07.06.09 at 12:27 am }

you know I was just thinking there might just be a career opening for Sam post Masterfarce. The Australian Medical Institute would just love to work with the ‘little sausage’

45 sourkraut { 07.06.09 at 1:02 am }

I just wrote a page hit submit and it disappearted into the ether. has ch10 or Geo got an automatic filter going that censors this site?

Justine burnt the toast Is this an IRONIC preview of the winner?

Snag making, you have to mince it fine!!
Chris you disappointed me i thought you could cook. Why not make a nice bock wurst or weiss wurst or best of all a Kurry wurst? (anyone that has been to the Oktoberfest will know wot i mean YUM YUM YUM)
Y not grill the snags?
How many of the dummies pricked them b4 cooking Stops them bursting on my bbq
And the winner is…not sam.
pohs snag looked raw with lumps inside and burnt outside and her 2nd snag which was burst in the fry pan (poor editing 10, but just seen 4 a millisec) was turned burst side down on the plate so PRESENTATION DUZ COUNT SAURKRAUT.
How come Julie’s snag didnt win when it looked good and Geo gave it arave review (eventho the other judges gave no comment)
Xmas BAH HUmbug
Who has salmon cooked for xmas. Understandably the rhubarb probably put even Poh off so the Turkey was eliminated, But surely the ham would have been nicer.
Anyway i cant be bothered repeating my rave.
Suffice to say how come poh who was eliminated earlier went home and practiced cooking meringues? coincidence? i don think so. In fact its no longer a “mystery” how she won the hot snag contest. Its all in the script, then there just happens to be ingredients for meringues in the invention test! Yeah!

Justice is dun J & J win. Dont worry poh Chris will be eliminated next I reckon. Anyhoo come SAM. i want to see you win and then beat Poh again in an eliminator. Yeah that’ll happen good onya 10
Well the gorilla won last night.

46 Reality Raver { 07.06.09 at 11:02 am }

Sourkraut – love your comments, however what could they have done with the ham. Yes christmasy but does not showcase your cooking skills.
Also turkey would take to long to cook would have to chop it up to roast etc. I definitely would have picked salmon.
Your right about Poh going off and practicing the meringues they must have been given a few days notice. I want Sam out next, it is becoming a farce with him there.
Agree I think they under rate Julie who puts out consistent tasty food, it is just not flash. More Donna Hay, than Neil Perry. But who sells the most cookbooks? Yeah?

47 Injera { 07.06.09 at 3:54 pm }

I think if Poh had chosen the turkey, the time limit would have been increased. That happened once before (was it a lamb roast?) so they’d have time to actually cook it properly.

Although I don’t think doughnuts are at all festive, I’ve got a hankering for one and some lovely options downstairs, so off I go!

48 sourkraut { 07.06.09 at 7:15 pm }

Reality raver
Yes a whole turkey would have taken too long, but with dear old uncle Chen’s trusty cleaver the Turkey could have been cut down to cookable size pieces. I woz thinking a really nice madras style curry turkey which does not appear in the Indian cookbooks probably because turkey is expensive, but an INVENTIVE chef would be able to make something like that quite sensational especially as it was to be a WINTER xmas dish. Pity there is no INDIAN contestant then perhaps there would have been a proper curry YUM YUM YUM YUM (my fave in case you hadn’t guessed by now) in the contests.
As to the Rhubarb I guess one could always sit on it?
You are not allowed to get donuts with sprinkles on. My son tells me only the Sergeant behind the desk at the cop shop is allowed those. (the others get plain ones)
