As I said the other day, they want another Andy Allen type winner, they earmarked Ben as the likely one to fit that role.
Yes I thought Shannon was definitely ramping up the "mean" last night, and yes it was absurd the way Sashi was hounded for not having a big enough portion, when all Ben ever plates up is a small piece of fish. And what is with serving a meal with one or if you're lucky two tiny veggies? I like my fish with chips, lettuce, tomato, lemon, at least some kind of salad. But that's not Mastercheffy, is it.Has Shannon been told he's "to nice" and to ramp up the harsh criticisms? He just seemed meaner tonight but maybe it was just me. I was also astounded that Sashi was berated for using only one chicken leg for his dish, insinuating it wasn't generous enough? Sashi looked as confused as I was. One large chicken leg is a generous portion, I thought and would suffice for me? Especially when compared to Ben's paltry offering...the usual tiny portion of fish, carrots and radish with a blob of creamed root vegetable. The way they raved over Ben's dish was nauseating and it was at that moment I knew Ben would take out the Masterchef title without any doubts I'll still watch the Finale but probably won't enjoy it. :/
