Top 50 Masterchef Contestants Unmasked
Obviously different contestants will appeal to different people. Daniel Vaughan has caught my interest, but he is an accessories designer so he must have creative flair.
However as usual there are more attractive women then men. George and Gary must have some sort of hot chick clause in the contract. That they must make up 25 per cent of the contestants.
But before that maybe check out this interesting article in the SMH which outlines the audition process and an interview with the producer who talks about the changes for this year and how casting takes place.
Also here is an article in the Herald Sun which states there will be no taste test eliminations, and that the cook offs may not be against celebrity chefs, but a solid home cook. I predict former Masterchef contestants may appear in this.
Anyway go and check the top 50 out and tell me what you think, I have spotted the two food bloggers Mathew Beyer from Cooking With Goths also here is his twitter account, from and Billy Law from Table for Two. They are also saying you can support him with the hastag on twitter #teambilly. Also here is his twitter account, but as expect no tweets.
Also there is another foodblogger from Sydney Tanja Bingelli whose blog is I Heart My Food. She can also be found on twitter here. She is tweeting so I don’t think that bodes well for her longevity in the show….
Names are also coming out as well here are links to articles that reveal the contestants names:
- Previous blog post with names from NSW and Qld.
- Paul Lombadi a Perth fighter pilot is covered in Perth Now.
- Jessica Nicholls who is UK/Australian and is taking a year off from Edinburgh Uni to be on the show. (Source: Gold Coast Bulletin)
There is probably more articles out there and I will drill down on the top 50 later.
