Good day all.
Can you believe it’s finale time for The Biggest Loser already? This season has just flown by. Just to let you know I have stupidly slow internet at the weekends so it may take me some time to get the whole thing up, but I am working on it. The finale aired in two parts – episode # 66 will see Joe and Phil face off and the final 4 be determined and then episode # 67 will see the at home and overall winners crowned
Now I bet you are wondering what on earth you will do tomorrow when you don’t have a daily Australian show to watch aren’t you? Well panic not as this year I will be posting Masterchef Australia which begins airing on Monday and follows a similar format in terms of when and for how long the episodes air. I didn’t post it last year as it was a new show and it would have been a big undertaking – but it proved to be a very popular show in Aus so this year I am going to share!
I look forward to reading all your comments on the finale – enjoy guys!
MasterChef Australia is an Australian competitive cooking game show based on the original British version of MasterChef. It is produced by FremantleMedia Australia and screens on Network Ten. Food critic Matt Preston, chef George Calombaris, and restaurateur and chef Gary Mehigan serve as the show’s hosts and judges.
MasterChef Australia features a different format to that of the original British MasterChef and MasterChef Goes Large formats. Initial rounds consist of a large number of hopeful contestants from across Australia individually “auditioning” by presenting a food dish before the three judges in order to gain one of 50 semi-final places. Contestants must be at least 18 years or over at time of audition, and their main source of income cannot come from preparing and cooking fresh food in a professional environment (such as in restaurants, hotels or canteens).
The semi-finalists then compete in several challenges which test their food knowledge and preparation skills. In Season 1, the top 50 competed until 20 were left, with the final 20 progressing to the main stage of the show. In Season 2, however, 24 contestants will progress. The contestants will then be whittled down through a number of individual and team-based cooking challenges and weekly elimination rounds until a winning MasterChef is crowned. The winner plays for a prize that includes chef training from leading professional chefs, the chance to have their own cookbook published, and AUD$100,000 in cash.
