TV is one of my escapes. I would really like it to be good. Bus since it rarely is during the summer, I've found myself turning to the Food channel. I'm now watching shows like Chopped, Iron Chef, Top Chef Canada and my personal summer favourite, MasterChef (not on the Food Channel). As you can probably see, I like the competition aspect of it. It's just really fascinating to watch people who are really good at something take on a challenge and kick its ass. I like watching them create something from nothing. Plus there's the added bonus of it being food and looking delicious.
Tonight was the beginning of MasterChef. Joe Bastianich still makes me want to slap him upside the head. I'm sure he's delightful in person, but he beats my death glare and that can't be tolerated. The Paula of the group... I think his name is Graham, I can never remember, amuses me. He's really nice and it's Paula-esque, but I suppose when you sit next to Gordon Ramsey you need a Paula. Oddly enough that leaves Gordon Ramsey in the position of Randy. And that's about as far into the American Idol comparison as I'm willing to go. So you know, I'm aware that there's been an Ellen, a JLo and a Tyler but there are only three judges on MasterChef. In any case, there's already one contestant on MasterChef that I can't want to see disappear. With my luck he'll be around all season. Because that's how "reality TV" works.
Tonight was also the end of Top Chef Canada. I'm sad for two reasons. First and foremost, no more weekly fix of Lisa Ray. Seriously. Sad face.
Other than that, I have to say, I wasn't on Team Carl. I was very much rooting for Trevor... from the beginning might I add. So, yet another sad face. If not him, I would have liked Jonathan to win but he was third I'm guessing. Yes, there was a surprise twist. One of the contestants who'd been kicked off came back! It was David. I thought it was funny that he won yet another kick ass prize. I think he cleared out the prize department pretty good.
