We have the cringe-worthy, yet funny, Come Dine With Me. A show that's only saving quality is in the form of narrator Dave Lamb. It's fairly fun and easy to make fun of people who take themselves too seriously.
|The glories of Come Dine With Me|
We had the overly-serious, 'THIS IS FOOD, YOU TREAT IT LIKE LIFE OR DEATH, YOU USELESS ARSEHOLES" attitude of the original UK Masterchef. A constant air of failure, tension and pressure. A bit unpleasant to be frank.
|"We are foodies and you will never be as superlatively AMAZING as us! Pttooey!"|
Then we have the much-loved, and much-improved Masterchef Australia: a marathon competition combining natural talent and development of skills, along with George's rocking heels and Matt Preston's cravat. Also serious, but with a positive and helpful vibe.
Then... oh bless, we were introduced to Masterchef South Africa. Just a week ago. Episode two tonight. Despite good production and a good mechanic, thanks to MC Aus, the desperate attempt to take themselves too seriously has already played against the resident judges. I think I'll leave it there.
|Haaaaa... I actually can't even.|
So in this whirlwind of the same but different cooking competitions, a solution was needed.
I'm delighted to introduce to you a REAL South African cooking show.
A cooking show that brings the best out of our Saffa disposition, and our local cuisine!
Oh! The pressure!
Ooh - the RAWNESS!
Oo - just watch "Half-Arsed-A Chef: The Boerie Tower Challenge" mkay?
Let me know what you think ;)
