Anyone else see the intruders on sunrise this morning?  

The 2 from the ads were on and it turns out there with be 3 teams of intruders up against 3 original teams in a new round.  I wondered why they only had close up shots of the 2 and not the whole table, I guess now I know why!

I was about to say, in yesterdays paper it showed another team of intruders - two ladies. One is the daughter of a fashion designer or something. (sorry, mind has gone blank! lol)

What's the point of intruders? To drag on the drama and season? Get to the kitchen studio!!!

I am not interested in the intruders at all - I prefer it to be just the two sets of teams!

Maybe they go head to head with the next 3 bottom teams (after the two bottom teams, the Spite Girls and Candice&Lisa) have been eliminated?

Or maybe they're so good they go against the top 3 teams?

Three is an odd number bring in given their were only two teams. I'm confused. I don't think I like this very much.

So, tonight we see the Cupcake Girls cook, then the elimination - is it tonight we meet the gatecrashers? Or first thing in tomorrow's episode? Nope, not liking this at all.

Arrrgghghghghghhg instant elimination!

ROFL! Yes, she did!

Her tears are going to get very old very quickly if she can't control them once in MKR HQ!

This next round should be interesting, but also potentially rather painful viewing  glare.gif

I think Jenna got her shows mixed up. Maybe she thought she was on Masterchef, with all the bloody crying. Jeeze, I can't stand crying, especially not on national television.

Cupcake & Co did quite well tonight.  

So glad that the horrid WA girls are gone.   I had to lol this morning, WD are running an article where they are complaining of the other contestants voting so that they would be eliminated.  

Well Dur!   When you are b**chy and sore losers what do you expect.

I seriously hope the new uber b**chy NSW* team goes the same way.



*oops.  thanks sydblue original.gif

I can't either. But you can bet your boots if you were that stressed and under pressure, you would probably be in tears to.

I think the really nasty ones are from NSW. Cabramatta or something.

I've been enjoying the show, but am losing interest with people being b**chy just for the sake of it..of course you are going to be eliminated!

I'm sitting here wondering about the intruders..It's putting me off..If they are going to put intruders in to make it more interesting, at least find some intruders that are interesting, this lot look boring! (yay let's be b**chy)

And I agree with Manu..sausages looked great, (even though I don't eat pork), but they need a sauce! But over all looked very nice

No, I can promise you, I would NOT cry. If I thought there was a chance that I would cry on national television, I wouldn't go on national television.And it's a cooking competition, of course there'll be pressure and stress, that's what competitions do to you. So why sign up for it if you'll dissolve into tears the moment your eggs won't whip?

I couldn't believe what she did last night......placed the egg mix on the hot plate, then squeals that its cooked the eggs, then tipped the strawberry mixture into the cooked eggs, then tipped the whole lot in the bin. Did she think adding strawberries to cooked eggs would uncook them?

To be honest, I thought she was completely useless in the kitchen and really didn't contribute much to the meal, especially after talking herself up so much. The dark haired girl though, she can cook!

it makes me think that the 'best' cooks are actually the intruders, cause if they cant cook, then WTF are they doing on the show.

TOTALLY CRAZY move there.  And one thing that drives me mad is people not making 'enough' of something in case of error!!

Couldn't agree more.  Jenna certainly had the other two meals way organised and basically all on her own!!

This bit actually made we wonder whether it was staged to crate drama. Why had the hot plate been on? Is it possible that they are told to stuff something up? Or am I now sounding like the bitter WA ladies? wink.gif

I agree with this completely.  She seemed to really have it under control and her food came out great.  the only thing Jenna did towards the entree/main was the mash really, and it was the one thing that wasn't praised as being outstanding.  She could go far from this if she does well.

The dark haired girl, Joanna(?), was the dark horse in this . Throughout this group, I thought she was the sidekick to Jenna but turns out *she* was the real cook under pressure. It was  so funny how she candidly said she thought her coiled sausages looked like dog poo.  laugh.gif She should act, her facial expressions are just classic. I didn't think Jenna cried so much as was hinted at in the promos, it didn't seem like an act for a sympathy vote. The WA girl, Candice, definitely looked close to tears when the judges were critiquing their food so I don't know where she gets off picking on others for it. Jenna's dessert did look beautiful.

totally agree.  The thing is she probably cooks under pressure every night because she has small kids and is running around doing a hundred other things as well!

Surely the original teams will be able to beat the intruders.  They have already had one go at it and they must have learnt something from the experience.  Well at least you would hope so.  They have listened to Pete and Manu tell everyone what they like so they should have an advantage.  Food cooked with love that has sauce on it!

I agree.

she really annoyed me. so useless! I am pretty hopless in the kitchen but that was extrodinary.

I am glad it all came together in the end but WOW. I dont think someone should need that much proping up.

I thought the dark haired woman was awesome actually. She was cooking fabulously. Her stupid friend was falling apart (essentially she had 2 tasks - the desert and to mash potatoes). Dark haired woman did everything else and had to 'life coach' her friend through her 2 tasks. she is a champ!

I thought the blonde was too rediculous. Even Manu needed to support her (which he did like a lovely guy!).  But she was falling apart even as the desert all came together and looked brilliant. rolleyes.gif

#24 miriams

Yeah, the mum in Joanna definitely shone through last night with her calm demeanour. "You know what, cry *after* your dessert hasn't set"  laugh.gif Can see her saying something like that to her kids if they get stressed out about something before it happens. Prior to last night, she didn't seem especially like a mother of two.

eta: Didn't think Jenna was hopeless though ...

I was thinking the exact same thing as she did it. Especially as I wasn't sure how many more strawberries she had. I think she just panicked basically. Maybe she thought whisking it and adding the cool puree would stop the cooking process enough to fix it or something.

How sweet was Manu when he came in and gave her a cuddle and calmed her down when she was having her meltdown over the dacquoise base.
