What did everyone think of the first ep?

I can see a few teams are going to drive me mad, and I think there a couple of quiet achievers amongst the group.

I was wondering if anyone was going to start a MKR thread.  I thought the Vic team did really well last night.  It would be terrible being the first ones.  The NSW and QLD teams are already annoying, Manu is as lovely as ever and I think Pete is getting better looking.

NSW "spice girls" are driving me nuts already - I mean who goes on a cooking show with such a limited palate. I love the Tassie guys - can't wait till they cook tonight. Those "activated almonds" have sure worked for Pete - looking very taunt and trim

I loved it.  Spent the first hour drooling over that red Kitchen Aid they kept showing.  Also had serious walk-in pantry envy, though the rest of their kitchen was a bit small, with the exception of the massive oven.  

Has Pete had some work done?  He look quite different in the face, at the least he looks like he's had a chemical peel or something.

I agree the Tassie father and son seem to be really nice and I am looking forward to seeing how they go tonight.

I thought it was terrible how a certain team gave a really low score last night just because they didn't personally like the vegetables used in the dish - just because you don't eat vegetables doesn't make it a bad dish!!!

I wish the 'spice girls' were gone already. You cannot judge fairly when you don't eat half the food and call it yuck.

What was with the 'game on moll' comment from that prissy little ballet guy.

There was an article in the papers over the weekend with Pete saying he had done a cleanse or detox to prepare for eating all the food on the show and that in the first few episodes he looks gaunt as a result

I have been waiting for the tennis to be over this series to start biggrin.gif

SlinkyMailinki - i too was drooling over the kitchen aid. i am envious of anyone who has one....

minxy07 - i could not agree more with your post. I am looking forward to see the 'Tassie' team cook tonight. Im sure that the 'spice girls' will find something that displeases them.

I knew the spice girls were going to annoy me... and omg brush your hair!



#13 protart roflcoptor

I thought Pete actually looked ill, too skinny now.

Those stupid spicce girls are so annoying. How can they be 'foodies' if they don't eat such a wide selection of foods? They just sound so immature and ditzy.

The guy from the WA team looks just like an actor who played a creepy stalking serial killer on Bones last season, it was really disconcerting.  I expect everyone to end up with food poisoning after his round  roll2.gif

It's so interesting to see the range of people they put on the show, I'm sure all of them (or at least one member of each team) can cook but the personalities seem to be put together just to cause conflict.

#15 Z-girls rock

Posted 29 January 2013 - 01:13 PM

ugh... I fell asleep for the judging. I hope I can watch just the judging again because I dont want to see the whole thing again.

spice girls are annoying. Last year the "princess' woman annoyed me but then I ended up liking her because she could cook REALLY WELL... I am not sure the spice girls will redeem themselves.

we'll see.

#16 ~sydblue~

Posted 29 January 2013 - 01:26 PM

I would laugh if the spice girls cooked dishes that the others all deemed too spicey to even try, or they said they were only going to try a small amount because they didn't eat Indian food.

#17 Z-girls rock

Posted 29 January 2013 - 01:29 PM

just watched the judging.

those 'Spice girls' are shocking. what fools.

At least the QLD brother and sister team who I think are also a bit foolish scored fairly.

as for the menu - I would have loved the entree, mostly because I am vegetarian - yum!
The wallaby I would have been like cry1.gif about (since when to we eat little wallabies??). But it seems that they did it well. So it should have been scored fairly.

But the dessert. I HATE chocolate and orange. So a jaffa cake would make me vom. blergh.

Anyway I think those spice girls sound like people who ONLY cook and eat very few things! I hope they do those things well or they wont last long. I dont understand how they will do challenges later in the comp when you cant always choose the ingredients or theme.

That was very harsh, hopefully it was edited to look a lot worse than it actually was, because that came out really bad and made him look horrible.

Looking forward to tonight's ep, yay for having MKR back  biggrin.gif

I reckon that was edited to make it look worse than it was. I bet they all laughed afterwards, and it just wasn't shown. If it had been serious, the other contestants would've looked all shocked and you can guarantee the producers would have kept footage of that in!!

Who even says 'game on mole"??? I saw it on an ad for Prisoner but that show is 40 years old! lol

#24 cward

Posted 29 January 2013 - 08:28 PM

I loved the Tassie guys, the dad was just so proud of what his son did it was so lovely.  I'm always amazed how different the contestants say things are to what the judges say, I mean surely Manu and Pete know more them then right.  Even Pete at one stage tonight just looked at one guy like he wanted to say "you have got to be kidding that was a fantastic dish"

If these Tassie guys dont win i will throw something through my TV.

They are amazing..

Geez there are some witches on here..ballet boy included..
WTF is with the scores ?? Seriously !! They did great, should have been WAY higher.
