Masterchef Australia – Dani Is Not The Only One With Math Issues
Ok I apologise to Dani about bagging her out about her maths yesterday about her not creating a recipe that fit into the 90 minute time frame. This disease must be contagious on the Masterchef set as tonight’s challenge the judges and producers set the final four a challenge that was not achieveable in the time frame.
If Shine Australia is looking at what they need to fix for next year’s series one issue they need to consider is giving the contestants a sensible time to cook the dish. Tonight again they should have been given an extra ten minutes to ensure they had a shot of actually plating up a cooked dish, and it would have still created the tension of them rushing to finish it.
Even Matt Preston looked pissed off about it. When talking about Kate’s dish he said he had seen the amount of work in the dish and was really disappointed for Kate. “With so much work in it I find it quite upsetting,” Matt said.
Not one of them dished up a fully cooked terrine, and I don’t think it was their fault at all. Gary Mehigan tried to justify the time frame given by saying the terrine was tested fifteen times and the timeframe was appropriate. It was like they knew the online forums would be debating this issue.
The other stupid thing tonight was the scene where Michael was trying to trick them into thinking that it was an Adriano Zumbo challenge. That plot line was unnecessary.
Kate’s terrine was first to be judged and it was the most undercooked. Gary said he was not going to eat it. They thought the condiments were good.
Maggie was impressed by Alana’s cool. The problem for Alana is this is final’s week, and I just don’t think I know her as she has been so restrained throughout the competition. For someone who has trained as an actress you would think she would come across as more dynamic. Again undercooked terrine and good condiments.
Dani apparently had made the best figs. However she did not serve up walnut bread as she forgot to put walnuts in it. Her terrine was under cooked. She had not turned up the oven temperature, if she had she may just have had a cooked terrine.
Michael managed to get his cooked more then the others, but it was still underdone, it was the best of a undercooked lot.
The judges pontificated and then put all four in the elimination challenge. I thought this was wrong, they judges should have picked two and if I was pointing the finger it would be Kate because her terrine was so undercooked, and Dani for not plating up the walnut bread.
