Loosely food based drama crap
21 June 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

If you want to watch a show for culinary purposes this is not the show to watch! You should take a look at Masterchef Australia, which is leagues above this drama loaded TV crap in terms of actually taking time to teach dishes and the contestants are actually able to make restaurant style dishes. But if your looking for a show that is loosely based around food and has the typical American high school type drama then this is the show for you. This is by far the worst Masterchef. The contestants are disrespectful and are only bullying each other, covered by the usual dramatic background music. The judges acting like big bullies and beasts. The money from FOX can not buy the standards of Masterchef UK, Australia, New Zealand or Ireland!
