Alex and Chelsea Creating A Masterchef Fireball

Well I have to hand it to Scott Ellis of the Sun herald he tweeted that he thought something was going on between masterchef contestants Alex and Chelsea as they were always standing together.

Well today in the Daily Telegraph they write that Alex had moved to Melbourne to be with retail manager Chelsea.

This raises a few issues:
1. Is this why Alex was bounced back into the competition so if ratings were down the publicists would have romance rumours to generate publicity? His cooking was pretty dodgy.

2. Is this why Chelsea has been getting so much airtime as well so we would know who she was when this story broke?

Or am I just too cynical that this story broke one day after Alex was eliminated. Chelsea did look teary when it was jay and Ellie walking back into the house.

Will put links in when I get to a computer I am on the fly today so writing blog post on iPhone for the first time.

Think you are just being cynical RR. Producers would have kept Alex in otherwise as obviously it would create more interest if he was still in the show. With him gone, the story dies.

By the way, be careful of the I-Phone auto correct !!!!!!!

recipe that Alex isn’t stuffing up for a change – Chelsea Buns

you’re not too cynical.

Producers have ‘story arch’ boards for reality TV shows too – they sometimes try and help things along with the way they create situations and keep following it if it develops from there, but if it doesn’t pick another one to push… It’s an old Big Brother tactic.

I am cynical too. I thought Chelsea was very happy to see Ellie in the elimination challenge.

Is just another way to get publicity for Masterchef.

when I saw the contestants particularly, but not only Alex and Haydyn I thought there would be romances this year on MasterChef, so not surprising

Blah! Ma$tersoap.

If I was Alex I’d have been hitting on Arena .

Alex could have shifted here.There’s a place called Lobethal.

7 Izobel2 { 05.18.11 at 12:51 pm }

Nice one BDD!! And wouldn’t he be able to work his magic at Xmas time hanging some 3000 Watt decorations off his lobes!

8 brain dead dave { 05.18.11 at 1:01 pm }

Alex could have been romantic and bought Chelsea some flowers.

Lobelias would be perfect.

9 Chunks { 05.18.11 at 1:29 pm }

Chelsea is still on the show so in fact there is plenty of mileage yet to made from this little romance.

10 Susan { 05.18.11 at 1:51 pm }

When Alex got the boot and scuttled back home – didn’t he walk in his door and give a little blonde and nice smacker on the lips?

11 Chunks { 05.18.11 at 2:03 pm }

The dirty rotten scoundrel. That’s probably tomorrow’s headline.

12 sourkraut { 05.18.11 at 2:26 pm }

Gotta have some headlines to distract from the po$t royal wedding $tories and Joolya’s up coming matrimony
I like Lobethal. Why inflict Alex on it? Rather get him a LOBE- otomy

13 Culinary Boner { 05.18.11 at 3:15 pm }

Lobellias —awww—–Alex could hold his very own Chelsea Flower Show

14 brain dead dave { 05.18.11 at 3:29 pm }

It’s an oldie but

Q. How does Chelsea hold her liquor?

A. By the ears.

Re the drinking /violence discussion on the Amazing Race blog ,I heard that the establishment where tonight’s Boys V Girls Ma$terchef challenge is being staged has a reputation for drunkeness and violence. Is that true?

15 Shelsta78 { 05.18.11 at 3:34 pm }

@BDD – They were named ages ago in the crackdown:

It’s one of the places out near new home developments and massive corporate offices of Woolworths + many others so a regular for Friday after work drinks.

16 Culinary Boner { 05.18.11 at 3:36 pm }

BDD, re the pub for the challenge. According to this media report even dogs having a sniff around the premises are not safe from sexual assault –

17 brain dead dave { 05.18.11 at 3:45 pm }

Shelsta and Boner….Thanks for the prompt replies,I get the picture.

You go to dine out and up being served a knuckle sandwich. The Mean Piddler.

18 smauge { 05.18.11 at 4:40 pm }

Who’s Chelsea? Is she the one that keeps accidentally pat wring up with other contestants?

19 brain dead dave { 05.18.11 at 5:18 pm }

That’s right,smauge.

She and Alex were partners for the dropped cake incident.

20 davsimp { 05.18.11 at 5:29 pm }

Laughing my arse off here at the lobe gags.

Chelsea is the one who keeps lifting everyone else’s food, and then, upon realising she has lifted some else’s food, continues to use it anyway rather than retrieve her own.

There are still too many in the competition. Hope this challenge gets rid of a few more.

21 brain dead dave { 05.18.11 at 7:29 pm }

Alex could croon “You Are The Sunshine Of My Lobe” to Chels…..or “Crazy Little Thing Called Lobe”.

22 davsimp { 05.18.11 at 7:55 pm }

That’s right BDD, or take the ‘L’ out of Lober and it’s Ober.

23 Pollywaffle { 05.18.11 at 8:10 pm }

…What’s lobe got to do, got to do with it …who needs pasta when pasta can be stolen…..eerie

24 brain dead dave { 05.18.11 at 10:10 pm }

Lovin’ your work Pollywaffle and davsimp.

You’ve Lost That Lobin’ Feeling.

Stretchers In The Night.

25 brain dead dave { 05.18.11 at 10:32 pm }

I’m All Out Of Lobe.

26 brain dead dave { 05.18.11 at 10:37 pm }

I Want To Know What Lobe Is.

Where Did Our Lobe Go?

27 Pollywaffle { 05.18.11 at 10:52 pm }

And they call it puffy lobe

Lobe hurts

28 Sooty { 05.18.11 at 10:57 pm }

So Lobes is stepping out with the Pastry Thief?! Low standards all round.

29 davsimp { 05.18.11 at 11:44 pm }

Next line for BDD
Stretchers in the night,
exchanging earrings, stretchers in the night…..

And one more quick one:
Now that you’re gone, all that’s left is a lobe of gold,
All that’s left of the earring I hold,
is a lobe of gold.
