I saw that bit ( don't like it) but didn't realise they got the scores too

Raahh Fri 15-Feb-13 19:38:57

I do like Roland Rivron, from when he used to be in 'Raw Sex' on french and saundersblush

Raahh Fri 15-Feb-13 19:40:20

I do think it is wrong- will they feel obliged not to ditch Aiden for the 4th timegrin

Bilbobagginstummy Fri 15-Feb-13 19:42:21

Aiden does have the better menu though...

Raahh Fri 15-Feb-13 19:44:00

He does- and has been more consistent. But i feel Pru is rooting for mary Ellen.

Oodsigma Fri 15-Feb-13 19:45:10

It's fairly close but Aiden tips it so if he goes through its ok with me

Raahh Fri 15-Feb-13 19:45:45

It's not funny, though...grin

Oodsigma Fri 15-Feb-13 19:53:20

Only funny ones so far were the chicken crossing the road and the bean bath.

Raahh Fri 15-Feb-13 19:54:38

I think it might end up being close- the judges seem quite divided. And Aiden's burger was not great yesterday.

Raahh Fri 15-Feb-13 19:55:33

I like the presentation of this- but a pineapple burger?

Oodsigma Fri 15-Feb-13 19:55:53

It looks better today, want pineapple now.

Oodsigma Fri 15-Feb-13 19:56:09

And trifle.

Raahh Fri 15-Feb-13 19:58:51

I really would like some Dover sole...the swordfish I had yesterday has spoiled megrin

Well done, Aiden. He doesn't have to bother next year nowgrin

Oodsigma Fri 15-Feb-13 20:44:12

grin

Mary Ellens goat dish went down better than I thought it would.

I do wonder who pays for the props. The fancy boxes, plates and such things. Do the chefs pay, the BBC, or does it come out of comic relief money?

It's the north-east tonight with judge Jason Atherton. The chefs are Colin McCurran, Charlie Lakin and Stephanie Moon - I think Stephanie is the one that went a bit crazy with the brief last year with snorkels and stuff.

Raahh Mon 18-Feb-13 16:58:28

Oh yes- Poor Stephanie. iirc, Nigel Haworth was the judge, and he was really nice to her about her monumental disastergrin

I wonder who pays for the props too- especially for 80+ people. maybe theydo a 'Challenge Anneka' stylee looting job?

Bilbobagginstummy Mon 18-Feb-13 18:16:52

Maybe they have a budget for food and props together?

Raahh Mon 18-Feb-13 19:38:54

hasn't someone already done the chicken joke?

Oodsigma Mon 18-Feb-13 19:41:06

Yes the first week I think. He had a road on slate plate

Raahh Mon 18-Feb-13 19:45:28

I'm already worried for Steph.

Now that is just stupid. What is funny about dog poo on a plate?

Raahh, I don't think they know what the others have done.

Raahh Mon 18-Feb-13 19:56:14

I had to pause and am a bit behind...
Dog poo?!

Raahh Mon 18-Feb-13 19:57:14

cat - no, probably not.

the poo is just wrong.
