His name is Mat, not Matt, and for the love of all things chocolate get over the hair.  wacko.gif

I could not believe what Seamus served up - slices of non cooked fish with a bowl of soy with what?? a ball of ginger or something in it?? My 5yo could do that.  laugh.gif

I don't think I like Andrew??, the one that didn't go home tonight. Not sure why, just don't.

Oh I agree, Mat/Matt/Mattt... wash your hair!!!

Shame Seamus went, thought the other guy would.  At least it was a bit fairer with them all being in the elimination challenge.

I don't like him either, I kept telling DH he creeps me out. He does strange facial expressions and seems so defeated and woe-is-me. That fish dish he served was disgraceful!

I have found Mat's attitude pretty annoying lately too, so many excuses and just a bit meh about everything. Wouldn't mind him leaving soon!

I love Hayden, he seems like such a good guy (and easy on the eye tongue.gif ). I also like the older gentleman who's partner left him just before the show? I like Kate & Danielle, they seem like the quiet achievers!

Does anyone think someone "nice" looking will win? Most if the "nice" looking people from previous seasons have jobs/ads on tv.

Or am I just looking too much into it? ph34r.gif

Hehe, yep I like Kumar too.  I think he's cute. Go figure.

I think the right people are up for elimination tonight and I'm looking forward to seeing what the challenge is and who leaves. I'm hoping for Ellie, I just think she isn't experienced enough all round to be in the competition, but I have a feeling it really could be any of them. None of the three has had heaps of success so far I don't think (correct me if I'm wrong though!).

And the 3-way immunity cook off on Tues should be interesting!

I also agree that the right 3 are up for elimination.  I would like to see Chelsea go.  I think she is a bit of the female equivalent to Alex.  She seems to only like cooking pasta (unsuccessfully!) and braising.......

This - I also think she's very bossy, the coverage of this is getting quite annoying the past few nights.  I do think the squab team also could have qualified for elimination, although I wouldn't want Cleo to go.

I too hope Chelsea leaves. I find her irritating.

After her amazing Bombe Alaska, I think Ellie deserves to stay a bit longer.

I found the challenge last night to be really interesting. I enjoyed it a lot.

This!  There's something about her mouth that irritates me - whenever she's stressed she looks like a ventriloquist's doll.  Very offputting.  I don't think she's an awful cook, but I think she's overrated.

My thoughts exactly.  I actually quite like Ellie, I'd rather she stayed over the other 2. Looking forward to tonight's show!

And what was with all the bling on a night when you're cooking? Seemed a bit over the top to me. Really hope she goes.

MY GOD!!! It was like she was trying to attract attention to her chest with her cleopatra shiny get up!

I'm surprised all the lights didn't reflect off Chelsea's top, she sure had a disco on her neck.

I hope she goes too, enough of the soggy pasta already.

I watched the trifle making over the weekend and can't believe how expensive that would have been to make. 2 bottles of Chandon, can't even count how many punnets of raspberries went in, and a heap of mascapone and gelatin leaves. I'm guessing a $50 trifle.

OOh i love this show.

Hope Ellie and Kate survive tonight. Dont go much on Chelsea.

And i wish Mat would either wash his hair or tye it back if he can biggrin.gif
