SPOILER THREAD: MASTERCHEF AUSTRALIA

Regular commenter Airwalk suggested a spoiler thread so people could put what they think are spoilers on it.

Here is a post to put spoilers that you know about Masterchef Australia Season 2.

As a courtesy try not to bring up what you read here on the other blog posts. As some people love spoilers, other people hate them.

Also just because they are spoilers does not mean they are accurate.

crabtech – I was hoping they’d talk to Adele about she’d been up to as well!. She was one I wish had stayed longer in the competition. Perhaps they did ask most what they were up to, but the editors just picked the people they thought would be popular and interesting.

Anonymous : hmmmm, 400 posts on this spoiler thread when there are about 11 hours before we know the verdict – it’ll take a big effort. So c’mon everyone, start thinking of some spoilers!

So here’s mine : my dog knows a producer’s dog, and his dog says that Callum makes cheese on toast and Adam makes a cheese croquembouche – thanks Jimmy’s relatives for that! (aside – i once made cheese and brandy choux pastry and it was soggy but yum!) The judges decide you shouldn’t take big risks in the finale so Callum wins that round. In the invention test, dog can’t exactly remember the ingredients but knows it contains foods which are no-nos for dogs, so Callum makes his third consecutive chocolate fondant and Adam makes a Japanese style salad with onions, garlic, broccoli, avocado and grapes. Callum wins this easily because the judges won’t eat the salad. So Callum wins.

Read in the paper today. Out of the Top 10 finalists, only Jimmy thinks Callum will win, Claire undecided (that is another story) and the rest think Adam will win.

With Claire, there is another story.

‘Word from the inside of the MC camp is that Claire left the show with few friends. Allegedly, she offended colleagues on set with her puuting tantrums and tears, and barely co-operated with tonight’s finale episode because she was so sour about being kicked off.
“She was such a bad sport” an onset source said. “she was even hiding from the camera when they tried to film the final scenes”
With such a reputation, we can’t see many endorsements coming her way.’

3 littlepetal { 07.25.10 at 1:37 pm }

Another theory about who will win tonight. In Wikipedia, they have started a page for Adam but not Callum. The only other contestant to have a page is Marion. Does this mean Wiki knows something that we don’t?

4 crabtech { 07.25.10 at 1:52 pm }

littlepetal Sorry anyone can start a page on wikipedia as long as you register so that is no help.
Tweet from Donna Hay at 9.46 “Will be heading into Masterchef HQ soon for rehearsals before tonights big finale. Best of luck to both Adam and Callum.”
If she’s truthful then the final part of tonight is being filmed now so it will be hard for spoilers.
Another curious tweet this time from rockpoolgroup, Neil Perry, Rockpool “Adam for Master Chef tonight. Saw all the contestants heading out for a meal last night, hope not to many hangovers today. Not me dry July!”
As for the other contestants Peter was shopping at Slow Food market at the Convent in Collingwood (Abbotsford) so they must have flown them up yesterday afternoon.

5 Fides { 07.25.10 at 1:54 pm }

LP : Knowing what a strategic mind Jimmy has, it’s entirely possible he’s correctly picked Callum as the winner. Wiki page – maybe it’s just no one is interested enough in Callum to bother. Do you know if the quote about Claire’s behaviour is from the cook-off finale, or the one filmed today? Hopefully she’s calmed down a bit – coming third is this circus is not too bad.

6 littlepetal { 07.25.10 at 2:06 pm }

crabtech-If they are filming the finale cooking challenges, they can’t have rehearsal!!! Rehearsal can only be for the announcement of the results .

7 littlepetal { 07.25.10 at 2:06 pm }

Fides-Yes, Jimmy said Callum will share his winnings with him.

8 crabtech { 07.25.10 at 2:18 pm }

LIttle vpetal I mean the annoucement. I think everone has agreed that the cooking has been filmed already possibly 3 weeks ago. All they are filming today will be the scores and the announcements so that might require rehearsals. I wonder if DH was a judge.

9 Fides { 07.25.10 at 2:21 pm }

I’m so curious now! How much rehearsal can they have for the announcement while keeping the reactions after the real announcement looking genuine and, well, not rehearsed?!

10 crabtech { 07.25.10 at 2:22 pm }

any bets what will be on the front page tomorrow? Certainly not the debate.
And if Callum wins that will dominate even more the radio and morning shows

11 littlepetal { 07.25.10 at 2:28 pm }

Of course not the debate. We are only interested in who won MC. I think the winner is already booked in to be on radio and morning shows.

Julia and Abbott can take a back sit. They may get more publicity if they get the winner of MC to campaign for them.

12 PollyB { 07.25.10 at 2:38 pm }

Adding to the post count
I noticed in the promo, shot from above, two white-coated people, one tall, one short with dark hair, with their arm around each other. The tall one had a ‘hugger’ on his left, the short dark haired one had no-one to his right. From that I’m assuming who the winner is. Best of luck to both of them. :)

13 Fides { 07.25.10 at 2:40 pm }

Hmmm, Matt P says he won’t be tweeting congrats to the winner until later tonight (after WA has seen it)… we know Adam has a genuine twitter account, Callum’s looks like a generic/fake one.

14 Anonymous { 07.25.10 at 2:45 pm }

Interesting Polly B….
The bit filming today is only slated in for 40 minutes according to my HDD player…the Masterchef finale goes 7.30-9 then the ‘announcement is 9-940.
Re: Claire…all the post elimination appearances I saw on tele she said hardly anything-7pm Project Matt talked much more than she did and on The Circle she was quiet as a mouse in a house…

PollyB, I thought the promo shots with huggers and lots of glitter was just the one they did from last year? Or has a new ad come out this morning since the official announcement has been made? Last year, I think eagle eyes could spot that Julie won just from that promo and even saw Julia and Chris kissing!

18 PollyB { 07.25.10 at 3:08 pm }

Fides, don’t know about last years, but the two in white coats looked like our boys to me. Couldn’t see real clearly through the glitter though. Certainly didn’t look to be as big as Julie to me. But after posting, and remembering, doh, that final scenes are being filmed as we post, perhaps they filmed that after the actual cooking this year and there is nothing to it. Or CH10 doing normal elimination thing – trying to tempt us down the completely incorrect path. Gee I’ll be glad when this is all over! :)

Yep definitely the same girl they show on the Channel 10 video from few nights ago. Very cute tweets (the English ones, awww). So she’s lives in Tokyo, and Adam’s got no visa so can’t go back to Japan. Awwww -the gossip mags will need to follow up that story!

It’s just as well Claire did not make F2, given they’ve published both the girlfriends’ names in the papers today. I even saw an interview with Callum and his girl. They are cute!

22 crabtech { 07.25.10 at 4:15 pm }

Adam appears to be the stronger cook and he should win. Something else they will have to take into account is avoiding accusation of being biased against asians. Can’t have 2 asian ruuners up two years in row. Although avoiding controversy is something that has not bothered the producers so far.

23 CG { 07.25.10 at 4:43 pm }

Someone twittered about an hour ago that they saw the whole group of MC contestants at a cafe nearby the Alexandria studios where they film. By all accounts, filming of the final announcement is supposed to commence at 5:30pm. So if there are any leaks they will only come out around 7pm or so. Twitter will likely be the best forum for leaks but impossible to tell if they are legitimate unless from a verified contestant account?

24 CG { 07.25.10 at 4:51 pm }

I wonder if Julie Goodwin will be at the finale now that she has defected to Ch9 and Ch9 is promoting that she is going to be on The Today show tomorrow to discuss the outcome?

Will it be like the “Miss Australia/America/Universe” pageant? Will Julie make a final puddle pie, give a little speech about her reign and then take off her tiara and put it on MC 2010?

25 Fides { 07.25.10 at 4:54 pm }

Thanks CG : wow, they are keeping it close to the chest aren’t they! It must be nerve-wracking to be Callum or Adam – the anticipation must be killing them. I do wonder what they do all day for rehearsal though!

26 Anonymous { 07.25.10 at 4:56 pm }

The result should be Adam Masterchef and Callum Masterapprentice

27 littlepetal { 07.25.10 at 5:00 pm }

I have read on the official forum that they have filmed 2/3 of the finale and from 5pm today they will film the remaining 1/3. Does this mean they have done 2 challenges and will do the last challenge today? If this is the case, the finale is can be rigged by the producers. They can chop and change along the way to favour which someone.

28 CG { 07.25.10 at 5:15 pm }

A sign of “rigged” – IMO – is if like last year there are three challenges – each contestant wins one and it comes down to the third one. From the various stories that have circulated in the last few weeks, I get the impression all the challenges have been filmed earlier – including the final pressure test – and all that is being filmed today is the 40 minute announcement of the winner – which will no doubt include lots of dragging things out, walk down memory lane, etc.

If the challenges are what we have heard about: (i) cheese identification; (ii) taste test; and (iii) pressure test – the winner of the first two would be known to all the contestants – only the pressure test would be subjective.

I reckon that during the earlier filming they filmed everything up to and including the judges tasting the pressure test dishes. Therefore what is being filmed this afternoon is the annoucement of the pressure test winner – which will also be the overall winner.

Can’t imagine a scenario where (for example), Adam wins cheese identification and taste test, Callum wins presssure test – and then judges need to make an overall winner decision separate from the results of the three tests??

I think they need to take out these ridiculous “basic skills tests” (identifying nuts, cheeses, etc.) and taste tests once they get to the final 10 or so. All tests after that point should be COOKING and cooking alone.

Iff this year also has contestants tied after cheese test and taste test… just like last year…well, how many seasons can they go with such a stage-managed finale without losing all credibility??

29 Anonymous { 07.25.10 at 5:20 pm }

Yes I agree with most of above but didn’t they award points last year?

30 CG { 07.25.10 at 5:23 pm }

Anon, yes, I think you are right re point system. But either way, IIRC it was “close” between Julie and Poh going in to the taste test…and either contestant could win. Can’t imagine where one contestant has an overwhelming lead going in to pressure test that would require a total breakdown by that person for the other to pull out a win. Could be wrong … and hope I am wrong!

31 Fides { 07.25.10 at 6:25 pm }

Yes I remember it like that too – I thought it was totally rigged last year when Julie and Poh had to do the chicken invention test. I think Julie received much more favourable comments than Poh, but their scores were almost identical. Then when Matt Moran choc tart came along, Julie ran away with it cos Poh had a brain freeze. I think in fact it was better with Celebrity Masterchef when there were 3 in the finale – at least it reduced the chance of a one horse race.

32 littlepetal { 07.25.10 at 6:33 pm }

So the 3 challenges will be 1) something to do with cheese 2) Invention test and 3) Pressure Test (Snow Egg)

33 CG { 07.25.10 at 10:25 pm }

Last chance for a spoiler: all the news outlets will know the winner in advance…will one of them pull the trigger before it is “live” on tv ?

34 littlepetal { 07.25.10 at 10:53 pm }

I am so happy that I was proven wrong. Right decision !!!

35 Anonymous { 07.26.10 at 3:26 am }

Yes thank god Adam won. Didn’t mind the challenges:agree ith RR that Callum should have had points deducted for the hollandaise and cream in his scrambled eggs.(omlette). I found it funny that the 2 contestants who put on the most weight were in the final 2. Thanks RR for the blog and the spoiler thread.
