Matt Preston Says Masterchef Is Real Reality TV
Masterchef Australia series five had its launch last night in Melbourne and it appears this season is not only going to be about the cooking but also “humour” for the the full wrap up go to TV Tonight.
In the pre show publicity judge Matt Preston has said they would be going back to basics but it may not be cooking he is talking about.
He told the Daily Telegraph the show is moving away from set-ups and TV constructs and scripts.
The article states:
“TV is no lover of honesty. There is a lot of mealy-mouthed stuff,” he said.
“It should always be about transparency, and honesty, having real people and contestants rather than contriving or scripting what role they are going to play.
“We are moving away from the whole scenario of set-ups like: You will cook this dish, and you will be cooking under water, and you won’t be able to use your hands.
“We want to give the contestants every opportunity to cook good food, just like people do at home.”
“I’ve always said what’s on my mind when it comes to dishes. At home you want to know want the judges really think. We want contestants to grow and we give them full and frank advice,” he said.
