Masterchef Australia – The Pressure Test And Another Contestant Goes
When George told Sarah that he was “super surprised to see her standing here” up for elimination she should have retorted “Well you put me here!”. Sarah is impressive and there is no bollocks about her. She just get on with the Alla Tasker Wolf pressure test last night on Masterchef Australia. She saw the complex River’s and Lake’s dish which involved many different elements and barely worked up a sweat.
Whereas Sean and Nick also in the elimination were barely keeping it together.
In fact this year on Masterchef I am hard pressed to find a contestant I don’t like. Sure there is a few that I think who should not be there, but one went last night and I presume Stephen is not long in this competition but do I dislike them? No.
At the beginning of the episode we see Sarah talk to her partner Davinda and her son Phoenix via Skype, as they are in London. She must live there as well but came home for the show.
Nick must be a favourite as Laura, Georgia and Brent decided to make Nick pancakes for breakfast. I note they did not make any for Sean. If there is a Masterchef romance in the house my bet it is between Laura and Brent as they looked pretty cosy on the balcony last night. You heard it here first!
Sean reveals he is a bartender and his dream is to have a place serving degustation menus with matching cocktails. He and Jamie have that cocktail chat in common.
It was good editing by Masterchef as they tried to put some tension into who was going but really once the fish dish was revealed you knew Nick was going to struggle. Savoury is not his forte let alone seafood, where he admits he does not cook or prep it.
It was a dish involved eel, trout, consomme, murray cod and they had two hours to make it. They were under the pump but they all plated up and they all have some highs and lows on their plates.
Sarah’s watercress had turned brown due to too much lemon, Sean’s consomme was cloudy and Nick’s trout skin had no crackle.
Alla Tasker Wolf showed she made a good judge she did not pull any punches with her criticisms. Bring her back.
Nick was flicked and he revealed he was starting a food blog and a catering business involving baked goods.
Masterchef Australia on TEN at 7.30pm tonight.
