Masterchef Australia – No Surprise That Deepali Was Eliminated

Jamie said he loved cooking but life got in the way. I think what he meant was a contraception mishap occurred and a child was born. Good on him for stepping up to the plate as a father and he clearly he is taking it seriously looking pretty serious in most episodes. Anyway Mr Intensity finally cracked a smile when he saw the dish that Shannon Bennett was giving them to make for the elimination challenge.

It was a sophisticated twist on Steak and Chips. It was Steak with Bone Marrow, Jus Gras and Pomme Soufflees with a Parsley Puree. Jamie said this is the thing he likes to cook and eat. For Deepali it was the exact opposite as she has never cooked or eaten beef due to religious reasons.

Jamie has now learnt early in the competition not too listen to the peanut gallery. After listening to Sarah he stuffed up his Jus Gras after she told him to add more stock to his too thick sauce.

Surprisingly Scott who had been sick, wiped out most of his chicken fat for his jus managed to plate up the dish of the day. Rather surprising as he seemed all over the shop and was quite behind most of the time in the two hour challenge. He got lucky or showed skill and managed to get his Pomme Souflee’s done right the first time unlike Nick, Deepali and Jamie.

The steak was meant to be cooked medium rare and Shannon Bennett looked like the mad professor when he was examining the beef. Scott’s was apparently cooked correctly, but it still looked on the rare side. Shannon said Scott’s dish was a good effort particularly as it was by someone who had not heard of a pomme souffle let alone cooked one. Was he calling him a bogan? Or was he just insinuating he would not be the type to eat at his restaurant?

Nick’s was raw or as they politely said blue, but he did like the Jus Gras. At first Deepali’s was deemed to be fine but on closer viewing it was raw. Most of her dish was a fail but did think her jus gras was the best.

Jamie’s steak was deemed to be the best cooked. Gary said it was beautifully rested. It had been sitting there for a couple hours. He was criticised for lack of seasoning.

Scott was the first to be made safe and they were trying to create tension about who was going but it was no surprise that Deepali was eliminated as she has struggled ever since she made the top 24.

Deepali has started selling her home-made chutney’s around the markets at Perth.

Who actually audit how much each restaurant made? The producers can manipulate the result

My favorite is the carpenter guy, I think his name is Steven. He seems like a solid character.

No Uel’s Canons. My comment had nothing to do with yours.
I refer to the fact that the magazine’s make a story out of people not wearing make up.
But I am glad you mentioned it so I could clear that up.

Ooops. I just saw @ 50 and realize my last comment was redundant. Cheers.

5 daisy { 05.13.14 at 9:48 pm }

Oh and did I post about the make thing on the wrong thread.
Apologies for the confusion.

@37 Yes Kira does look like Asher Keddie and

Tracy = Natalie Basingthwaite

Sarah = Natalie Portman.

Some pretty average comments about the eliminated contestant on here. Harsh to make a judgement on someone’s intelligence and skills based on a few minutes of heavily edited TV.

You can’t be in the top 24 in you are a bad cook and you can’t be a dentist if you are dumb.

Writing comments here, however, requires no skill and no brains. So how about you go out and show the world what you are capable of instead of criticising those who try.

If it requires no skill and no brains, why are you writing here and not out showing the world what a miserable excuse for a blogger you are ?

Same idiot, Littlepetal. Too easy to “judge”

10 techhater { 05.14.14 at 10:37 am }

SNAP Littlepetal

11 daisy { 05.14.14 at 11:06 am }

It was obvious. Not at all cunningly disguised.

I guess we aren’t the only ones who need to get a life. The big difference; we’re having fun.

12 Techhater { 05.14.14 at 11:19 am }

And loving it 😈

13 Em { 05.14.14 at 6:48 pm }

Nope, not the same person actually.

14 Em { 05.14.14 at 6:54 pm }

And although I’m not Wotsits, I agree wholeheartedly with what they say. It’s a bit like the kids at school assembly mocking the girl getting up and singing the national anthem – I’d like to see them get up there and give it a go.

15 Rosie { 05.14.14 at 7:56 pm }

Well, Wotsit et al, you have no idea just who we are. Thing is, we have among us quite a few professional, retired in my case, and you have no idea who we are and what we do or have done in life. So who the fuck are you to criticise us?!

16 brain dead dave { 05.14.14 at 8:01 pm }

I didn’t see Deepali called “dumb” , just a bit daft.

For going on a show such as Ma$terchef without having ever cooked beef would make me worried about her sanity and also a visit to her dental clinic.

17 Johnny Brown { 07.28.14 at 11:23 pm }

Let us get one thing clear ABC, Deepali is from the UK, not India. With all due respect, not everyone with brown skin is an Indian so your points are invalid. Otherwise I didn’t think your were offensive, you honestly thought she was Indian.

18 Debanjalee { 09.17.14 at 7:18 am }

It’s almost devastatingly unreal to see no indian ever trying to portray what real indian cooking n cuisine is like on MC. It’s a wide array of regional cuisines vastly n typically different from each other, and all they show you is some common punjabi or madrasi fare. This season,sorry to say, deepali looked like she cannot boil water to save her life; indians should not be given preference just to sell the show in india. Feeling ashamed and wishing i could cook…
