Master Chef Season 4 premieres tonight.. this and Top Chef are two of my favorite cooking shows on TV; always fun, goofy and interesting.   Plus, I still fawn over the winner from Mississippi years ago.. :)

Ah, Whitney. She was a memorable Southern belle.

 

I'm looking forward to the new season, though I can do without some of the flakes and loudmouths at the open auditions - not to mention the jinned-up drama and cuts to commercial during every split vote.

I really don't think these are "open" auditions we are seeing. I do believe all have been screened and invited. Some for their skill of course, but others for their flakiness and lack of skill. How else would they have film crews in a contestants parents car or at the house of someone who got an invite to compete if they all weren't prescreened. Pretty much the same way Idol works I would surmise. Anyway, I'm looking forward to it too.

They say out of the thousands that submitted, only 100 were selected to attend this audition so I assume that's correct.

Going to miss the first episodes due to DVR conflicts, will pick it up next week when it really gets going.

 

This is one of the few Ramsay shows I enjoy, looking forward to it.

 

Pretty much agree with Matt, this and Top Chef are the best cooking shows out there. Once in a while watch Chopped, and a few PBS shows, but most of Food Network is pretty lousy, and filled with repeats that are 3-4 or more years old.

Ramsay is clearly getting paid per pregnant pause this season. "The person....who cooked a dish....that is not up.....to MasterChef standards.....and is now.....going to take off his apron......and leave......the MasterChef kitchen......right now.......is.......

 

They could cut the show to an hour if it didn't take him five minutes to finish a sentence.

 

Otherwise, good opening competition show. They have their villains for the season and their underdogs to root for already in place.

You have to watch this with a DVR remote handy.   It helps.   But some of it is great fun.

I love this show and Ramsay.

 

Joe gets to be the "villain" on this one, while Gordon is sometimes wincing in the background.  (Then the next night, I get to see Gordon in his ranting and raving mode on "HK".)  It's hard for me to believe that some of the home chefs somehow whip up an excellent cheesecake or entree when they say it's something they've never cooked before.  Baking, in particular, is very unforgiving.

 

The whole bit last night with Luka and Jordan and the cupcakes was great.

 

If only we could taste some of these amazing dishes -- unlike singing or dancing, we have to take the chefs' words on it.

Why did they rerun last week's show this week? I thought the point of summer TV was to avoid reruns!

You read my mind

So glad to see Bri finally stand up to Kryssi last night. I'm really, really tired of her bullying and I hope she is the next one out the door.

 

Still hard to pick a winner this season but I would not be surprised if Eddie got it. There's a nice publicity tie-in with a former NFL player becoming a Master Chef.

Yeah. I pretty well despise Kryssi. So annoying.

Have to retract my earlier comment. I'm burned out on Ramsay shows so this quickly dropped off my viewing list.

 

Joe Bastianich really ruins it for me. Ramsay is somewhat toned down from his usual attitude, but I just don't care anymore.

Joe does tend to overdo the steely-eyed stare. That's why I loved last season, when it had no effect on Christine for obvious reasons.

Yeah.   And his commentary is not very helpful, very snarky.   I think part of my enjoyment of this series in the past has been a few great home cooks.. Whitney and last year I really rooted for Christine (who didn't?!?) but this year I don't have anyone I'm really rooting for just yet, just a few I'm rooting against.

3 observations on tonight's episode:

 

1. Luca's line about Linn not have eggs for breakfast tomorrow made me laugh more than anything this season thus far.

 

2. Glad that Bri is getting a second shot - and I hope she outlasts Kryssi.

 

3. Jessi looked amazing in that pink dress. Wowza.

The MasterChef Juniors advertisement makes me wonder what kind of challenges they are going to have. Should be interesting.

Gordon's son trying to pick up Jessie, and Gordon high-fiving the effort - priceless.

 

I think it's going to be either Jessie or Luca.

 

Enjoyed seeing Paula Deen, away from all the mess her life has become over a lawsuit that was ultimately dismissed.

I'm really glad Luca won. He playedthe game fairly and was never mean spirited. He actually helped others. I hope he has great success.

Agreed Mark. Luca really pulled it together over the last few weeks.
