I still don’t get the criticism of the food. Has looked largely amazing for me, especially so early in the competition.

Wanted to absolutely smash the Middle Eastern dish in the bottom 5 cook off. Yum.
There's been some terrific food made already, so I'm with you. The criticism so far is unwarranted. I'm enjoying the series so far. It'll take a little time to get the know the contestants and see their personalities on the screen, but that's the same for the beginning of any new season where they have home cooks and not all stars.

Agreed, the food so far seems to be on par with previous years and a decent amount of talent across different cuisines. The criticism in this thread seems to be about personalities not being interesting, which is hard to show when so many contestants are still there. Also, no stand out ‘hot’ contestant like Billie to get some people’s attention.

I am enjoying it as much as most previous seasons.

I see they got rid of another useless one only a few more till the top 12-14. Think there’s 10 genuine fillers this year
i think they know as well, some of the contestants are not even getting a look in. i don't think i've seen anything that Scott , Jess or Sabina has cooked yet, it's like they are extras or something.

Took a week or so but slowly getting into this season. The initial episodes were a bit too dragged out. So was this Trent guy the first to be eliminated?

Also have they changed the format slightly this season. Have just started watching and looks like elimination is on Sunday night?

Agree on the food there have been some cracking dishes so far,plenty of talent in this group.

Trent was the first out, yes. He couldn't cook for sh*t.

I thought Tommy was very lucky he didn't get eliminated last night. Going by the comments his dish seemed the worst to me. They must've seen more upside in him going forward than the Sri Lankin lady. Nice seeing Poh, Callum, and Reynold though.

The one that went home was a mile worse. Tommy at least had elements that were great such as the broth.

imagine not been able to get the pastry out of the shell, 3 that should have been eliminated straight away for that fail last night
It wasn't pastry, actually, it was tempered white chocolate, and if you don't temper it right you can't get it out of the shell apparently. Jock said so before they started. I would've stuck it in some hot water, let the choccy melt a bit, then gently pull it out. I don't know if anyone tried that cos I didn't watch all of it.

I stopped watching when Tommy's dish was being assessed as I had assumed he was a goner.

The team challenge was interesting. Blue team with the huge comeback. Who went home from the purple team?

Maja went home. Another average to meh contestant so not a surprise. Her and fish girl were the worst two, her one was slightly worse

I've really been noticing this season that poor old Andy doesn't get much screen time when it comes to judging the food. They usually show Mel and or Jock's comments on the food for the majority of the time. It kind of makes Andy's presence superfluous.

I think there's only so many times you can say "that's a cracking dish".

Don't mind this season though, people are actually going home based on the criteria unlike Laura cooking pasta every single week like last season.
