Masterchef Australia – The Drinking Game

masterchef (1)

Masterchef Australia series five starts tonight and this year the judges admit the cooks are not as talented as the previous year and that it will be about their stories.

Of course Masterchef is not Masterchef without its cliches.

Thanks to Reality Raving’s readers and particularly Anna for compiling the list, here is a drinking game to ease the pain when some of the tried and true phases are trotted out.

1. Each time we hear the word journey
2. Dream
3. Waterworks
4. Sweat going into food
5. Licking spoons etc and re using them
6. Eating with open jaw
7. Diving for food as if not eaten in years
8. Salivating
9. Spewing garbage that no one understands (jowlsy)
10 Stating the bleeding obvious
11 Doing it for the family
12 Healthy food (there is a PT in the mix)
13. I have never cooked this before
14. Jowlsy sticking his paws into others plates
15 Every time George or Gary say: “that’s a CRACKING dish”
16. When George says ‘ Cook like you mean it”
17. When George bobs up and down
18.Cook with love
19. Risotto is the death dish on MC
20. You eat with your eyes

32. Integrity
33. Elements
34. Is that going to cook in time?
35. Explosion on the palate.
36. Silky smoothness.
37. If I call your name, please step forward
38. The person going home tonight is….(30 second delay /still life of Jowl$y)
39. Do you think you’ve done enough to stay in the competition?
40. Do you think you’re frying under the radar in this competition ?
41. There was something wrong with the oven I was given
42. I’m not used to cooking outdoors
43. This is the first time this dish hasn’t worked for me
44. I’m not ready to go home yet w/ I really need to be here and from now on I’ll give it 110%
45. I have to nail it tonight
46. I might not have anything to put on the plate.
47. I could be going home tonight.
48. I am going to bring my A game
49. There is too much/not enough seasoning
50. “my mother’s cooking”. (Take a bonus shot if it comes from George)

If you are going to play it drink responsibly.

Also keep the cliches coming in and I will add them.

“I want a beautiful dish!”
Do they still say that..? My 5yo kept saying that after one of the last seasons before dinner. He knows better now..

2 Jules { 06.04.13 at 6:47 am }

Lol, my 5 yr old niece took to marking each meal made for her out of ten. She was a tough judge too.

3 Anna { 06.04.13 at 7:59 am }

Emma, can you please add Double dipping to that list … Each double they double dip – means 4 shots…

4 Moonstruck { 06.04.13 at 8:36 am }

Can we add to list
I’m salivating.
One of the female contestants said it.
Obviously she has been watching.

5 Anna { 06.04.13 at 9:07 am }

6 Moonstruck { 06.04.13 at 9:10 am }

Thread necromancy! Actually I was just wondering if anyone managed to survive this season (which is now in the final week) using the drinking game? ;p

8 Lisa { 08.27.13 at 2:12 pm }

Been watching from the USA with my roommate! Every Friday night we watch the whole week’s episodes and drink with a list of our ten favorites… and ten has proved to be more than enough. xP
