I remember last year or the year before I had to start this thread too. Is anyone watching this season? The contestants are really really clueless when it comes to cooking (I think Matt Preston mentioned this before the premiere aired). Despite the quality of the contestants the show is still great and FAR superior to Masterchef US. It also seems like the contestants this season (no clue about others) know exactly what they will cook beforehand. For example, in the July 1 episode for the immunity challenge the contestant wore a shirt with a duck for the occasion. Have to cook something by surprise is far harder...and that is how it seemed last season.
Who do you think should be cut now and who do you think will make top three? I think the granny should be the first to do then the young Indian girl, followed by the Middle Eastern woman (dont get me know I love that type of food and they seem like nice people but dont have what it takes). The guy who left for medical reasons was definitely next up to be eliminated. I have a feeling one of three guys will win (sorry I dont know their names) the Asian 22 year old student (Totom?), the man who was in the immunity challenged (starts with V), and the stay at home dad (even though he isn't very good).
It isnt nice to saw but Im a bit biased against the Tiger Mom and it might be because of her strange jaw/teeth.
Also, anyone else sick how in the personal stories everyone says I'm cooking this for my dead mother/father/handicapped sister... blah I dont really care...am I an ass or is this completely overdone?
