Not sure yet how I feel about the new show Master Chef on Fox 5, featuring chef Gordon Ramsey. Sort of an American Idol for foodies. I start watching the show and comment to Mr. Cheese how I wish I’d heard about it during auditions because I am totally perfect to be a contestant. I watch some of the folks cook for the judges with confidence while some of them flail around. All the while wishing I could jump through the screen, give Graham Elliot a hug and snag his glasses. I grew bored after 10 minutes and had to change the channel because I could not deal with the looooong, duh duh duh draaaaaawn out draaaaaaaama of what Chef Ramsey was going to say about a dish being disgusting or someone getting an apron or not. I spent more time literally hanging off the edge of my couch waiting for the commercials to end, than I did enjoying the show. I think I’ll tune in again once the auditions are done, to see if the ‘catch the viewer’ strategy has changed, any.
