Masterchef Australia – Dom Lifts The Lid On Other Illusions From The Series
Dom who was eliminated last night because of an underwhelming black forest cake has also revealed that the replating of the the dessert in the celebrity challenge is not the only thing that occurs behind the scenes on the show.
He reveals to the Daily Telegraph that it can sometimes be hours between completing the dish and the tasting of them. This is not new as this was in an article earlier this year in the Masterchef Australia magazine supplement in the Sunday Telegraph. In that article they stated they already had an idea on how they would taste as they go around tasting as the dishes are being prepared.
The Sydney software expert admits that hours can pass between plating up and judging, with the show’s three experts often feigning enjoyment when tasting dishes that have been kept warm all day.
“You do understand the gap between us finishing and them tasting is hours sometimes, so by the time the judges taste it it’s totally different,” Corrigan told Confidential yesterday.
“And the judges taste it and go, ‘Mmmm’. I wouldn’t put that in my mouth let alone look happy about it.”
He also revealed that there is not constant tears in the Masterchef house either.
“But I certainly didn’t get the feeling, live, that people were falling apart and crying all the time. But obviously they’ve had a production bias towards that to create the emotion on the show.”
He has tipped Marion Grasby to win this year’sMasterChef crown.
