So last night the 3rd episode of MasterchefSA aired and the judges narrowed down the kitchen gimps from 25 hopefuls to the Top 18 contestants who will go to Nederberg Wine estate to compete for the title of best tv chef in SA.
I’ll be honest i did not watch the show, but i heard lots of talk about one of the judges who’s jacket didn’t fit properly as well as people on social networks saying the show is trying to hard to copy the international versions.
I recognise none of the top 18 contestants apart from one, Ilse Fourie who i’ve known for decades. Back when her name was still Ilse Nel and i hope she wins the whole damn thing. She knows the how to use oil effectively.
Nicely done meisie.
Here’s the rest of the Top 18.

Ya…they coulda at least thrown in some token folks that people recognise hey. Maybe a celebrity MasterchefSA woulda been a better option.
Kinda like the NoMU online spoof series Half Arsed-a-Chef. Contestants include Liezel Van der Westhuizen, Richard Hardiman and some other legends. Hey even yours truly made an appearance along with some words from Helen Zille. Last week’s episode had the contestants make a boerewors tower and this week sees them create a tomoto puree made by squishing fresh tomotoes in gumboots with extra points handed out for a well choreographed routine. Check it.
Props to the judges for drinking that mess.
