Masterchef returns with new judge

Masterchef returned last night with Christina Tosi taking the place of former judge Joe Bastianich.

Sadly show still isn't going to be a Masterchef Australia or New Zealand, looks like the usual cast of pretty stereotyped characters for cooks. I didn't think Christina did too bad for her first night. Altho several times I thought she was really copying Ramsay's long.... delays.... in.... dragging... out.... comments.... for... drama.

Format was changed up a little this year for the beginning auditions which I thought was a nice change, altho not sure how fair (but really, how fair is any "reality" cooking show?)

Hell's Kitchen starts again tonight-does anyone care?

Well he was pretty to look at. But not missing him or Allison, because all I could do is wonder how she kept her eye makeup from running in a hot kitchen.

Meghan, Milly or T could win and I'd have no complaints. Altho I;m kind of routing for Meghan who hasn't gotten a win in a team punishment/reward contest for like 7 times now

Oo I watched that season of the Taste and liked him. I can see some resemblances. I admit I like the chef who has an odd "kick to their gallop"

I like both Josh and Randy. But judging from what the editing monkeys let us see, Josh was a much bigger screw up than Randy.... BUT, and here's a big but...... Ramsay always has a soft spot for people who do well on his taste test challenge, and Josh rocked that. Sad to see Randy go, because I liked his personality and straight forward attitude, But there was no way he could send Michelle home over Josh, and he's not going to boot his taste test star. (my opinion, obviously.) I still think Meghan has this, she's much better than her closest competitors. I predict a Meghan/Josh finale, 2nd choice would be T or Milly taking Josh's spot. Meghan to win.

RIP Josh Ozersky

Never cared for him or his writing, but sad to see someone die that young.

I don't know. I've also wanted to set this up and try it myself with friends. because it looks easy but you know it isn't.

Agreed. I expect a power play between t and Josh and the red team losing. If the blue team works with Meghan they can coast a week with no losses. Also seems like we are about ready for the double elimination, plus the blind fold palate taste test. Which I admit, is one of my favorite.

Well Josh does make good eye candy, and he's a little wackadoodle with all the talking to himself, so makes for good TV. I'm surprised Michelle has lasted this long. I wonder if her dish on the exotic meat challenge was really as good as all the judges said.

Watched last night's episode. This is about the time the season gets more interesting (to me at least), the chaff and slackers have been weeded out and you actually get to know more of the personality of the remaining chefs. I wasn't too impressed early on this season, but it seems like they have some pretty good chefs left standing. I've even looked up a few online to see that they really are legit trained/educated chefs. I now think this is Meghan's to lose, but Randy with his military background is really starting to grow on me. T is right up there as well.

Top Chef Season 13 Is Heading To...

all I can say is top chef Canada introduced me to Jesse Vergen who could probably be one of the best top chefs of all time if he'd come to the U.S.. Hilarious to watch, cooks fabulously.

Top Chef Season 13 Is Heading To...

I liked Doug and Katsuji. The rest really don't stick out for me from Boston.

I'd like them to do a city that's a little less mainstream. Yes. Pick us. The flyover states. We have food, too!

Apparently more to the story... allegations an assistant was the problem, not Giada.

Okay well great. Thanks for playing along. I think Meghan is the front runner now. Would your show give her a cute spandex outfit if she wins?

Watched last night's episode. They've finally weeded out enough people that I'm finding it interesting again.

Servers who ask if you need change...

See and that's why they should ask. I'd assume I'd get change unless I let the server know. No one knows what the other person is thinking. Just saying. It doesn't offend me. Ask me straight up, no confusion.

Servers who ask if you need change...

Agree with ctscorp completely. I'm not their only table, and it's nice that they ask. Who knows, that may even be their restaurant policy, so to punish a server for doing what they're told is ridiculous.

Agree with you on Monique (and the dead weight). The other gal that was up at least occasionally showed some good cooking skills. but I'll be surprised if she makes it to the end.

Restaurant Birthday Party- You're Invited But You Have to Pay

My opinion is simply, give me a heads up ahead of time so I know what I'm in for and what I can afford. Other than that, proceed however you would like.

I agree. I like how she handles herself on the show. Read an article on her and looks like she has real cooking chops/experience. On the men's team, I think Bret has talent, if he gets over being a cry baby. And... completely unrelated, Josh is easy on the eyes.....

I watched last night's episode. I have to say, there are a few chefs on here that are pretty interesting, more so in say the last 4 seasons.

Masterchef AU.

Finished 2 episodes of master chef jUNIOR australia.
That was fabulous. The weren't pulling crap. They showed you the recipes they gave the kids, and the judges and guests went right in and helped out. It was ... refreshing.
