Anyone watching MasterChef?

I love watching the cooking competition shows, but I can't say that I'd ever want to be on one. I can't imagine standing there for an hour and a half peeling and slicing apples -- And Gordon would probably have a stroke if I asked for a stool! LOL

I love, love, love cooking shows and am watching Master Chef. I was really hoping that the "aligator" guy would have made it through. I don't have a favorite yet. I think it's to early. Although I do like the guy who wore the pumpkin apron and hat.

Yeah, alligator guy was the one I was really interested in seeing go on, too. He just tickled my funnybone and I like people that have a good sense of humor.

As someone living in Cajun Country, I can tell you, my heart nearly stopped when he said he was going to prepare gumbo in that time! It's one of the few times I actually was talking to the TV, trying to get him to change his mind... like he could hear me! LOL

Yep, I remembered that you're a Gordon Ramsey fan, too! :smileywink:

Hells Kitchen is my favorite of the two shows, plus I like Kitchen Nightmares, too. But you kind of get to see a little more of his softer side on this one;

Oh man... in the 18 down to 16 episode, Max and Suzy both were both showing enormous egos and hating on each other! LOL It's kind of like seeing one persona in both genders; they're more alike than I think they realize.

And the 16 Compete episode, where they had to cook in teams for the office workers... neither of them lived up to their own opinions of themselves. Suzy pushed for a lasagna while admitting she'd never cooked it. Really?? Who is gonna wait to try out a new dish in the dead middle of a competition! Then to have the gall to say they should have changed dishes -- come on, everyone can see through that!

And Max... sheesh, he was the one putting burgers on unclean cookie sheets, causing them to be tossed in the trash, yet he blames Tony for making the burgers too big and causing them to run out? Wanting Tony to cut down the buns to make sliders was a kind of stupid request, IMO; Gordon would have gone ballistic over that kind of presentation, don't you think? Plus, he really dissed on Giuseppe about the pizza... I have a really problem rooting for someone who always blames someone else, especially in a team challenge they lead! LOL

Who would have thought that part of the competition would have come down to the dessert? Fresh fruit and whipped cream vs chocolate chip cookie! LOL

In the pressure test, I hated that Tony lost (and seeing Max smile about it really raised my hackles), but I love that Gordon encouraged him to continue to pursue his love of cooking.

LOL...ok, finished with my rant now!

Wow I thought I was the only one totally annoyed with Max and Suzy.
