Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

Not only was lolmanny not the best chef in episode one, he wasnt even the best Firefighter in episode one.

I see a lot of potential in Eric

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

After watching the first 2 episodes I think I'd rank Alejandro as my #1 pick as well.

Eric also looks strong and probably destined for a deep run.

Both guys in my top 5 so thanks for that

He's not the person I wanted but he's the person I need. FiancÚ wasn't thrilled with the pick.

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

Alejandro is the correct pick. I would have taken him over Eric if I had the option.

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

I thik that female judge will be the big wildcard for how things shake out. Her decisionmaking ability seems in question. I've seen two bad decisions from her so far.

I like alejandro a lot as a contestant. As a cook however we'll see. That burger was all over the place. I think the only reason he won was that the other guy's was a mess....and Never EVER use bleu cheese. that seems to be the rule.

I was impressed that he could make turkey burger and cabbage something that's tasty. that stuff has no flavor and is mealy.

So good pick.

Yeah I was really impressed by the dish. He seemed like a nice dude but his actual cooking looked amazing

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

so do people have knowledge of something i don't? our pick got rather a strong reaction when at this point we literally have nothing but their first dish and appearance to go by. (and in several cases we got nothing but a glimpse of them)

Are you guys trying to guess based on typical reality tv tropes of how someone is edited/what their appearance and story is like?

or do you guys know some spoilers or something.

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

Afaik it's impossible to determine spoilers from this show unless you know a contestant personally, but maybe I'm wrong.

I feel like most of the banter ITT is due to common tropes and a little bit of Mastershef meta wrt Manny not having what it takes to go deep

def no spoilers, but i do go by edit.

i remember for a season of survivor i looked at pre-game spoilers for betting purposes but when you have a good idea of what is going to happen it takes all the fun out of watching. never did it again since the minimal financial game wasn't worth losing enjoyment on the show.

there's nothing on the line for this competition other than pride and having people to cheer for. it's not even exciting to cheer for people if you know they are going to win. spoilers are lame.

but ya, looking for a winner's edit is important i think. survivor editors have got better and not making it too obvious who is going to win based on edit. i have no idea how Masterchef editors do it since ive never seen the show before, but I imported by survivor edit knowledge and found Alejandro was edited very favorably and he also seems like a good guy to cheer for.

cool cool

i really don't think this will be a survivor. survivor is so obvious and predictable in what they do at least in who is going home in a particular episode. And it's very different when you have judges.
THis is more like top chef/project runway, etc.

And I do think that other judge will be a factor a lot in who gets eliminated. That said I find it hard to vote for someone I immensely dislike and as you say want to cheer on someone. I can't believe there were like 8 people they didn't even bother showing. Why have 20 chefs if you aren't going to show them?

Re: Masterchef Season 7 Draft

Yeah, I think the last contest in the second episode outlines how the second judge has a fair bit of say

I suspect that when that live lobster got sliced in half, Effen felt a disturbance in the force.
