Masterchef USA airs in the UK somewhere in the dark recesses of our cable TV, although not on a station available on my package.
One of my regular supermarkets publishes a weekly magazine, usually stuffed with adverts for whatever it is plugging that week. But there’s always some lifestyle sort of articles, including in this week’s a plug for the show, as follows:
“Masterchef USA is so insanely loud and brash (the whooping, the weeping, the fist pumping), it makes Gregg Wallace look like a school librarian. Gordon Ramsay is at his most boastful (I’m the man behind a billion dollar empire) and bullying - bawling like a demented sergeant major. At the end of each challenge he orders the cooks to “put your hands in the air” like they’ve been raided by a SWAT team. Also what exactly are grits? Does anyone know?”
Please don’t blame the messenger if you disagree with this analysis.
(PS: Gregg Wallace is one of the presenters of the UK version)
