Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

I wonder if anybody has strong #1 implications after seeing the first episode.

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

Funny about David Williams since I watched ep 1 and then a few days later watched the Negreanu netflix doc KidPoker and he's in it too. Haven't seen him elsewhere since like 2008

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

Was I the only one who though David made the weaker dish in episode 1?

Based on judge reactions it seemed like he made the way stronger dish.

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

David Pros: Doesn't care about the winning prizes so he will be there with no pressure, just doing something he loves.

David Cons: Doesn't care about the winning prizes so he will get lazy and complacent as the show progresses.

He is on my top10 list at the moment.

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

If nobody minds I'll be drafting with Mrs Stuck as normally we do 1v1 drafts and this time we'd like to actually collaborate.

Anyone else welcome to team up I suppose

And yes we'll start the draft tomorrow night and run through till next Tuesday I suppose. Think we should hard cap at 5 teams since there's only gonna be 20 or so contestants

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

if there is more of us maybe we could do a "submit your team" type of thing

we all pick X number of contestants and than get scored accordingly

obv we'd organise so nobody could know who picked who in advance.

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

I only entered this so I would have a reson to watch a kitchen show

Did you already watch the first ep? I can pm you my preferences and we just take it from there.
I will only be able to watch the second ep about 24h after it airs, so you can take the lead on the first picks

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

I don't think we'll be in a huge rush to draft after tomorrow seeing as a few us don't watch live and it's weekly

plus drafting 20 total chefs shouldn't take long

In my example A represents forward order while B represents backwards order. So writing it out the long way, our options would be this:

ABCDE EDCBA ABCDE EDCBA ABCDE
or
ABCDE EDCBA ABCDE ABCDE ABCDE

I've seen both styles run on POG

You'll need to watch the second one to get an idea of all 20 contestants.

We'll rand the order after the ep airs tomorrow, but I'm sure we can be pretty lax about picks for the first 48 hours after it airs

I'm still confused by your order as you have 10 orders. Given that it's 20 contestants, 5 players, 4 each, there only needs to be 4 orders, and standard snake of

ABCDE EDCBA ABCDE EDCBA

makes most sense to me.

Yeah this is a good idea. I rarely watch live and will want to scroll through the first episode again.

FOX has luckily changed their On Demand service (as I didn't dvr the first). Before, fast forward was completely disabled. Now, you can fast forward during the program but FF is disabled during the commercials.

My cable box is kind of stupid. If I start something on on demand there is no guarantee that it will pick up where it leaves off, so for things like ABC shows, which disables FF completely, if I stop with 15 minutes left in an episode and it restarts I would have to sit through 45 minutes of **** I've already seen which is ridiculous
