Masterchef Australia - I am not the only addict am I? Please someone else come and talk to me about the hysterical theme tune at least.

I have got the theme tune ringing around my head.

I love it. It is far more exciting than the english version imo. The challenges are a lot better.

It's a bit annoying in that in that exasperating 'let's recap what you have just seen in case you have forgotten' sense but it's good fun.

The judges are equally grouchy and matey (I do like a grumpy Australian man).

I don't watch but ALL my australian mates watch. It's like a cult.

PseudoBadger Mon 11-Mar-13 13:57:13

I love it - please don't tell me I've missed a new series?

I always watch it when I see it's on.

I have a secret crush on the short fat Greek one blush

I LOVE the short fat greek chap. He is 90% grouchy bastard, 10% sweetheart. George.

I am less keen on the one who looks like a German opera critic.

I record it - it's on every weekday on Watch, about halfway through.

I love the Masterchef NZ as well. Terrific accent.

My favourite show. <Blows flour at camera>

We love it! My cousin is currently working for George. Front of house in his restaurant as far as I know.

Their junior Masterchef is amazing too. Unbelievable how good they are.

Never got into any of the other ones although a friend of a friend is on the current NZ one.

I really feel sorry for the people doing the elimination challenges where they have all the rest of the shouting instructions from the balcony.

I really hope that at some point someone rounds on them and shouts 'fuck OFF' which is sadly edited out.

I watched one yesterday where they did a 24 hours shift in a canteen serving a goldmine. Really interesting challenges.

There is a strange and tiresome woman on it who keeps going on about coming from Western Australia and 'making WA proud' . Is WA the Aus euquivalent of being a yokel then?

I like Jay (the young lad who looks like a fat Matt Damon). Or Sun (the ginger girl).

PseudoBadger Mon 11-Mar-13 14:04:36

The only one on my Watch at the moment is NZ?

GetOrf Mon 11-Mar-13 14:04:52

Your cousin works for George? <shrieks> grin

I love him. I just want to nestle his head into my bosom.

GetOrf Mon 11-Mar-13 14:05:46

It's on Watch at 7pm nightly.

I like the young lad who looks like Lisbeth Salander as well.

PseudoBadger Mon 11-Mar-13 14:05:52

Ah xp - yes I've seen that series. Thank god I haven't missed a new one <wipes brow>

HobKnob Mon 11-Mar-13 14:05:56

German opera critic- is he the one who wears a bow tie and can never quite fasten his clothes?

HobKnob Mon 11-Mar-13 14:06:13

No no, not bow tie- CRAVAT!

GetOrf Mon 11-Mar-13 14:06:54

DON'T TELL ME WHO WINS!

Yes, bow ties. What is that accent? Posh aus?

PseudoBadger Mon 11-Mar-13 14:07:35

I wouldn't get too fond of the theme tune. I miss it

PseudoBadger Mon 11-Mar-13 14:08:22

Gary and Matt (cravat) are both from England.

GetOrf Mon 11-Mar-13 14:17:18

Are they both English? Gary sounds australian!

PseudoBadger Mon 11-Mar-13 14:18:55
GetOrf Mon 11-Mar-13 14:19:23

lol at Matt Cravat grin

They can't get rid of the theme tune sad

OH and I were so obsessed we had to download the episodes to keep up with Aus. We would have a big binge on Friday night and watch a weeks worth. Am vegetarian ffs, not like I was collecting a useful new repertoire of recipes.

I genuinely lament that the theme tune was replaced with Katy Perry for the later seasons, I still sing the old one. If its still the 'down to the wire' caterwauling for the uk showing then I'm going to have to catch it again on Watch <massive loser>

Sallster Mon 11-Mar-13 14:21:32

Matt was at Kent University with my Auntie. Apparently he came point to pointing with us once?!!

GetOrf Mon 11-Mar-13 14:24:05

Yes to the 'down to the wire' caterwauling, you will have to watch it tonight.

Katy Perry? shock

I would rather have the terrible Home and Away esque theme tune.

I have stopped my son's viewing of Postman Pat to add it to the sky planner.

New theme tune is awkwardly edited version of Hot and Cold. Because, you know, food is hot. And cold. And yes and no too I guess.
