Masterchef Australia – Has The Daily Telegraph Told Us Who Has Been Eliminated?
The News Limited papers nationwide have run with a story about how Masterchef Australia has turned into Nastychef, but have they accidentally let the cat out of the bad on who has been eliminated. (Thanks Airwalk for the link).
The Daily Telegraph states:
Media experts say this year’s top 10 is filled with arrogant and unlikeable contestants who are whingeing, whining, criticising and crying their way to success.
Only three – Marion Grasby, Adam Liaw, and Peter Kritikides – seem capable of cracking a smile.
It’s a stark contrast to last year, when “sweethearts” Julie Goodwin and Poh Ling Yeow captured hearts and the top two spots.
“The contestants aren’t shining like they did in last year’s series,” media analyst Steve Allen said. “Only the intense contestants are left. Anyone who was a bit lighter of heart and mind has gone.”
Last Sunday’s show was a perfect example of how MasterChef has turned into NastyChef, with judge George Calombaris berating contestants for their poisonous attitude to the return of eliminated people.
Fans have filled the show’s forums with less-than-flattering comments about contestants, particularly Aaron Harvie, Jonathan Daddia and Claire Winton Burn.
I hope this is not ominous for Alvin, Courtney and Jimmy who I thought were all smiley contestants, but were not mentioned in the article.
