Masterchef 2009

To be honest, I only started watching it half way through, but this years Masterchef has been the most intense thing I’ve ever seen on telly.

It starts with the two hosts (who have the same voice) shouting “Cooking DOESN’T get tougher than this!” and “Someone who can turn out EXCEPTIONAL food!”. The intesity continues for the next 57 minutes, ever increasing and featuring more dialogue between the hosts at a stupid volume until finally someone gets through to the next round and you can relax with some happy, relieving music.

Seriously, don’t watch it if you have a heart condition, it’s stupidly intense.

The best bit is when they go off to talk about the contestants’ food. It’s obviously bits clipped together because nobody has normal conversation like that. They shout comments in each other’s faces like “It had the flavour AND the texture” (bit of nodding in agreement from the other one, slight pause) “You would EXPECT to see that in a HIGH class restaurant”.

The ident they have for it is daft as well. This red-hot cooking hob with an M in the middle explodes onto the screen (literally on a fireball) with this droning intense music in the background and a sizzling sound. It’s not light entertainment, it’s scary.
