Masterchef Australia Has Started Filming And They Would Be Feeling The Pressure
Masterchef Australia has started filming in Melbourne and there will be a different mood on set from previous years. This year for one of the first years since it started they will not be filming as the top reality cooking show on our screens.
In fact there is a lot of pressure not helped that Masterchef Professionals did not rate as well as they hoped. To be fair the Professionals series was good television most of the time, but was up against My Kitchen Rules that was pumping out the drama.
George Calombaris talks about the pressure in today’s Daily Telegraph.
It will be interesting to see if the producers of Masterchef will try and amp up the drama, the back stories and the inter-contestant dynamics or if they will focus on the cooking.
One of things I hope they get rid of this year were the immunity pin challenges where the person could win a pin off the back of other peoples good cooking. That never made sense to me. I would also like to see George, Gary and Matt Preston intespersed with more guest judges like Dan Hong, Chris Mansfield, Donovan Cooke and other established stars of the culinary scene.
