So, Masterchef AU season 7 started last night just as My Kitchen Rules season ended.
Though it does get more and more produced and dramatized each season I do still like the fact they do (though shorter ) an audition round, that the level of cooking is light years above the American versions and the contestants are real.
i like a few of the cooks a lot already.
The American version (Canadian one as well) so plugs in stereo types
they will always have
The Pretty (somewhat) girl who can cook (somewhat) "they are all going to under estimate me because of my looks"
The nerdy / uncomfortable girl (usually a girl) who does not know how good she is. Always wears glasses even if non RX.
The Southern Guy who cooks like his Mama.
the Armed Forces / First Responder guy.
The usually East Coast speaks her mind person....always fights with Pretty girl.
and the Technique guy who knows more than all of them about food and reminds you all the time (he is usually gone pretty early.)
Anyway I suggest checking it out if you can. If you don't use torrents it should start hitting you tube in a few days.
