Masterchef Finale – Media Frenzy
Well it is all Masterchef Australia today in the papers with just about every angle being covered.
But first I will put an open post and I will be “live blogging” well really just making comments with the rest of you.
Also tomorrow I will have my review and critique of Masterchef Australia the second season up on blog. Also later I will discuss the reality shows you can watch to fill the reality show void Masterchef will leave….
I am wondering whether selected people have been told the winner, so we will see by the front cover of TV Week tomorrow.
Also reading in the papers Callum says his signature dish is chocolate fondant, so again gobsmacked why Adam and Claire handed it to him on golden platter. For the record Adam’s signature dish was rum and lemongrass pork belly. Adam also states in this article that chocolate will be his undoing apparently he has not eaten it for 25 years. WTF?

Here are some links and other bits related to Masterchef to whet the appetite for the night.
Interesting leakage from the Masterchef set in relation to Claire Winton Burn. The Sunday Telegraph (scroll down) have a little vignette that says she was not real popular on the set.
- WORD from inside the MasterChef camp is that Claire Winton Burn left the show with
few friends. Allegedly, the flame-haired Melburnian offended colleagues on set with her pouting 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 on-set 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.
Interestingly enough I am searching for some interviews online with Claire but I cannot find them. Are they being very selective who they are choosing to interview her?
Also here is a link to an video interview with Gary Mehigan where he talks about some of his favourite places to eat. I concur with his choice of Cafe Sopra in Sydney.
The Sunday Tele also had a little column by Matt Moran who said this year’s contestants were better then Season 1, and he made a funny comment about Justine saying she had done some work experience for him, and she was a “sweet girl”. So not sure what he was implying about her cooking ability.
You may have already seen this Who Mag article on Callum where he talks about the heartbreak of his dad dying. Which is indeed sad, however I am worried whether this is a hint that he has won tonight?
