Decent MasterChef podcast but a few things don’t sit right
I listen to this podcast for MasterChef (not Masterchef) as I was wondering if there was anything like this out there and this was the only one I found. I don’t have time to watch Bake Off but I appreciate its existence.
I think it’s a pretty good podcast with hilarious recaps of the recent episodes, and it’s awesome that they get guest ex-contestants every now and then.
I have issues however with the way their criticisms and rants about MasterChef are presented. I know that we have different opinions and I wouldn’t expect the hosts to unanimously praise the show. I also am interested to listen to the criticism and understand why the hosts feel that way. Every so often though, the criticism has started to grate on me.
I am getting really sick of hearing the hosts get annoyed with the judges whenever a contestant succeeds just because they are a Caucasian man (and using unnecessary language to describe it). I’m not sure where they got this idea that the judges are sexist because there have only been two Caucasian male winners out of the ten winners, and only one season had an all male Top 3. The show has also highlighted diversity from the contestants all the time.
I understand that there could be some diversity from the guest chefs that come in, but background and gender barely plays a part in it.
The judges do not have favourite contestants. I know that they sometimes talk in jest about funny things that some contestants do, but something like playing music to celebrate the elimination of a contestant they claimed was a favourite last year was unnecessary.
The same things that have been said over and over too frequently recently and have annoyed my enjoyment of the podcast that I felt like saying something about it.
I love this podcast!!! Lots of laughs and great recaps. Well done guys!
