Masterchef Australia – Top 50 Names Starting To Be Released
With Masterchef Australia kicking off on Sunday some of this years contestants will find their life changed forever, or they may find that it not quite the transformation they expected. However Justine Schofield, like Poh and Julie Goodwin has managed to sustain a successful Masterchef career with her new show Every Day Gourmet, Injera does an hilarious review of it on BlahBlogBlah.
One of the interesting things in the early episodes is trying to pick the contestants who will be the ‘stars’ of the season.
Names of the top fifty NSW contestants names have started to be released, and if this a hint of who will make the top 24 I don’t know or are they just giving a few bit players their time in the Masterchef Australia. Also readers you know the pack drill if you know them I would love to hear from you.
The contestants announced in the Daily Telegraph are:
Greg Andren – 31 from Erskineville who is a barista. He also plays guitar, sings and writes his own music;
Kate Bracks – 36 – a stay-at-home mum with three kids. Was a teacher before having kids. Lives in Orange but was raised in Sydney;
Peter Vickery – 50 – account manager for a Sydney framing company. Went to drama school and has worked as an actor.
The cynic in me wonders if Greg and Peter applied to try and increase their profile with their artistic endeavours. If that is the case good luck to them, however they better be able to cook….
The Queensland people named in the Courier Mail are:
Dive instructor Adam, 30, and fruiterer Michael, 35, are the first two Queensland contestants named in the top 50 of the popular show.
Michael’s nanna burst into tears when she got the news.
“Cooking is something I have enjoyed doing all my life. I used to cook with my nanna when I was younger,” Michael said. “She is a crier at the best of times, but she was very proud and happy that one of her grandkids loves cooking like her.”
Adam, who has owned and run Go Dive Australia since his early-20s, decided to audition for the show to find out if he’d taken the correct path in life.
“I was working at a restaurant as a youngster, but had a bad experience with a head chef,” he said.
Adelaide Now online has not contestants name revealed, however they review the first episode, and reveal what is in the first mystery box, and quite frankly the arrival is more exciting then the ingredients in it. Clearly they are as they say going back to basics. Don’t read the next sentence if you want a surprise on Sunday night, however it is potatoes, mince meat, and lemons. Otherwise known as the inaugural Julie Goodwin mystery box.
