It's back, beginning on 15th September on WATCH. This year should be interesting as apparently they have made changes to the format that didn't' go down too well with viewers. Anyway I'm looking forward to spending time with George, Gary and Matt for the next few months.

Just caught up whilst suffering with heartburn on the sofa. I like it - hated most of the first episode though!

Kelty has such a smug, slappable face.

PseudoBadger Thu 19-Sep-13 06:51:45

Oh yes. And that macho twat Michael - is that perhaps John Culshaw moonlighting in MC Oz grin

I just want to reassure you that the girl boy thing doesn't go on for more than a week or so.

How come we got a Masterclass just 3 episodes in ?

Kittenkatzen Thu 19-Sep-13 08:38:40

Oooh oooh can I join too? Love MC Oz, by far the best Masterchef series and I'll be counting on it getting through some long nights when dc1 finally decides to put in an appearance grin

YY to macho nobber Michael needing to go - "live by the sword, die by the sword", wtf?!

Kelty also v annoying and a bit rubbish, although I did have to sympathise over the offal fiasco....brains bleucccchhhhhhh.

Felt bad for poor Dan being kicked off first, don't think he deserved it really.

Thanks! Hadn't realised it was back. All excited about it now. I've managed to find last night's is on at one o'clock today so I'll be able to catch up.
My Aussie accent has vastly improved from watching previous series! grin

I think they must've changed the start night or master class night. Or decided to just jam a master class in the middle of the week.

yeah Michael is in elimination ! Now we just need to add Kelty ... Where does Lucy come from in UK ?

I will be sitting here, on elimination night, with a voodoo dolly of angry-face-sweary-Michael and lots of pins!!

I do think that whoever made the boys' sour cream pastry ought to be in the elimination - I can't remember who it was, so I am not sure. But it was clear from the get-go that it was not, and was never going to be pastry, and if they had made a fresh batch there and then, they would have been able to make their tart. I'm glad they didn't though, since it landed Michael in elimination.

Did you see the bit where he said he didn't accept that his mistake was what blew it for his team the arrogant fucker??

Davros England Sat 21-Sep-13 22:52:09

I'm on episode 2. God, where did they get some if these "cooks"?!

LIZS Sun 22-Sep-13 08:12:03

I know, some of them can barely cook the basics or recognise ingredients! How one earth did they whittle it down to these ?

Sunnymeg Sun 22-Sep-13 14:07:38

Michael appears to be the most opinionated awkward contestant ever. I wonder if he is having a bad edit, or whether he really is that bad. Don't think much of Noeleene either!

Davros England Sun 22-Sep-13 16:22:35

They usually show a bit of how they got to the ones who are in the MC house but they didn't this time or I missed it. Michael is horrible and Kelty is an idiot, he seems to think he's Irish! I also don't like the really skinny, bossy woman who only cooks Italian food. Loving every minute though grin

Wolfcub Sun 22-Sep-13 19:57:16

if lazy Nicky is in the elimination I'm going to be torn between him and smug Michael

Wolfcub Mon 23-Sep-13 19:11:42

clarissa has to go shock

Woo hoo - I am a happy woman tonight!! Can I say why, or is there anyone who hasn't seen tonight's episode yet? grin

Davros England Mon 23-Sep-13 23:37:09

I'm still behind.... I won't read any more until I've caught up. Hope its Michael though

Think god he's gone. Raw chicken?! I mean, who actually would be crazy enough to put raw chicken on a plate?

Typical BBQ chef - thinks he knows how to burn a few sausages and he's the next Marco Pierre White

Clarissa is getting exceedingly annoying too - she is next on my to-leave wishlist. I am a trained singer too, and there is no way I would do all that showy-off-y operatic singing. You can tell it is irritating the hell out of the other contestants too - I wonder if anyone will tell her?

She is vair vair irritating. All those questions would have fucked me right off too.

I also find the Aussie woo-hoo shorty cheerleader really irritating. Brit Lucy looks a bit like a fish out of water when they get going grin

I am annoyed. Usually they start with good cooks. Those who wouldn't dream of serving raw chicken for example. This lot aren't good. They're not even enthusiastic. Not happy.

Having said that I did enjoy watching them do their 12 min rotation challenge.

Especially what's her face and her detailed instructions written in mustard on the counter top. Which might have been useful if she had bothered to tell the next person what the mustard hieroglyphs were all about, so they could pass the info on.

FacebookWanker Tue 24-Sep-13 22:36:22

I love MCA...these lot are pretty useless though...

PseudoBadger Tue 24-Sep-13 22:47:52

I guess that the main big unpopular change to the format was to ditch the 'top 50" that they used to do. Therefore they've ended up with some rubbish people.
