Marion Grasby Despite Being The Favourite Reckons Jonathan Will Win
Masterchef Australia golden girl Marion Grasby has opened up about how exhausted she is in and how upset she was with producers for giving three eliminated contestants another shot at the competition.
In the Sunday Telegraph today she said:
“I was just disappointed because I knew that this was going to take a lot longer than I thought,” she said.
“I certainly wasn’t angry at the contestants themselves. It is really hard to be away from your friends and obviously my partner Tim [Althaus] – we live together. “Just losing that contact with everyone else is really hard.”
Marion said she had underestimated how tough being a reality contestant was, despite having worked as a television reporter for the ABC in Adelaide.
“I have done TV before so I know things take a long time, but I never really thought how much being tired and sustaining energy over a long period of time, months and months … how difficult that would be,” she said.
She also said the judges were not playing favourites:
“I don’t see why the judges would go out on a limb for a TV show contestant like me or anybody else. If we thought that something was going on, we wouldn’t be on the show.
“Well, I wouldn’t be, because that is certainly not fair.”
She also thinks Jonathan Daddia will win because of his technique.
The article also confirmed that Claire and Aaron were unable to hide their emotions and did not take part in the “celebratory drinks” for the eliminated contestants before the cameras in the Masterchef house.
