The Taste Needs New Judges
15 February 2014 | by mssdm43See all my reviews

Now that we have almost suffered through a second season of The Taste, I do hope they will find new judges for next year. I have had all of Ludo's arrogant attitude I can stand. In two seasons I have yet to understand a word he has said. He is a pompous, arrogant jerk. Nigella is a witch. She hovers over the contestant's shoulder and will not allow them to be the cook she expected they would be when she chose them. I would have walked out just like her last contestant did. The only one I think is worth keeping is Anthony. Another problem: They have never explained just how they can somehow push a button and a contestant's name pops up on the screen. If they don't know who made which dish, how can they select which one they are voting for? I have never felt a judge should be both mentor and judge. That is kind of like playing both sides of the fence. Like a conflict of interests. Just not believable.
