Scallops! Every week! I've never even HAD them...

It's the Masterchef finals next week. I can get a bit overexcited about this, and may be prone to some over-long blog posts.

But it's so good! There were mumblings in the media last week along the lines of who are John 'cuddly bear' Torode and Gregg 'pudding me' Wallace are to go about being critics of other people's food.

But they are so nice! This programme is ace not just because of the food pron*, but because they treat participants so well in the edit; if someone screws up, it's balanced with good compliments. If someone has a good dish, the voiceover questions if it has been enough. The judges always say the decision is a difficult one to make and how these are "EXCEPTIONAL" amateur cooks.

It's nice! More niceness on telly, please.

None of this matters because the real star of the show is India Fisher, whose breathy and sultry tones are served up as the delectable voiceover.

One week, just once, I'm waiting for her to get it wrong...

"IT'S LITTLE CHEF... AND THIS WEEK OUR FINALISTS MUST FEED AFRICA TO A BACKGROUND TECHNO BEAT"

(Incidentally, my money is on Comeback Contestant Andy).

Slice and chop on.

This comment could change my life.

Can't help but wonder what the bloody hell Andy has been doing this last year. If he's so "passionate" about food, surely he could have gone to college/got a job in a kitchen and he'd be well on his way to fulfilling his dream by now. Instead he seems to have sat on his backside waiting for a second go on the telly.

He's going to win - by some distance.

Hi Malc!

There is something suspiciously military about Andy. It wouldn't surprise me if he was really a spy infiltrating the programme as part of an elaborate cover. He's like robot.

As a super Doctor Who geek, Masterchef scares me because I want India to say things like "Sooo-Doh-Kooo" and "Doctor!" all the time.
