Ahh, you missed my gaff on Alan Joyce! But I thought you’d enjoy this picture better!
It’s been a hefty week yet again for reality with the launch of a real kicker; a few makeovers, some spooky premonitions and a whole lot of cooking!
Junior MasterChef began the week with a challenge that saw the contestants head to a farm to cook a three course Australiana meal. They were split into teams with the green team consisting of Lily, Chandler, Marcus and Zac winning the feast.
On Monday, it was their final chance to earn some points and they did so by cooking breakfast and preparing a shrimp delight in front of none other than Luke Nguyen! In the end, Marcus, Harry, Tom, Stephen, Dee, Gracie, Jack and Kieran couldn’t scrape their way into the top 8 and will face elimination on Sunday.
To The X Factor and the performances weren’t good compared to the week before but it was certainly going to be Johnny’s to lose. He found his way into the bottom two facing off with Mitchell Callaway but sending the show into deadlock, the judges ensured Johnny some hope. That hope prevailed as you lot sent Mitchell, undoubtedly the stronger singer, home. Fair to say, their showdown performances were probably their best yet.
The One- Ooooh why do I bother- Maria was eliminated and really, if you believe in all that- watch it!
Beauty And The Geek- now that’s a hoot! This week was a massive 90 minute fiesta complete with a makeover! Johnny, Gilbert, Bendeguz and Julian rounded out the makeover cavalcade and didn’t they look amazing.
But the event was somewhat shown up by the shocking exit of Maddy who left due to undisclosed medical reasons and was replaced by the bubbly Jacelle.
From there, two challenges saw Julian and Jordan and Gilbert and Jacelle safe from elimination where they chose to send Jimmy & Mackenzie and Helen & Troy into elimination- separating the two partnerships forged between Jimmy & Helen and Mackenzie & Troy. From this, the golden couple- the twist of the season, Helen & Troy, were sent home.
Celebrity Apprentice Australia was the massive highlight of the week- as it comes with being a cab off the rank in this industry. Twelve celebrities began earning bucks for charity doing the work of mere mortals. This included working at KFC (would you like some product placement with that family fun bucket?) and a car wash. Pauline got down to some very colourful dacks to impress customers. Poppy- I mean Polly- salvaged whatever celebrity status she had to go against Deni and her brutal ways. Max danced around like an absolute hoon and Warwick pretty much did nothing.
We got straight into it with Bouris not taking any prisoners- eliminating both Polly and Warwick in the debut week. The show has performed well for Nine and is set to become a fast paced hit.
So what happens next week? Well, Junior MasterChef eliminates four more contestants on Sunday before the final 12 head to LA!!! It is sure to be a must see week in a must avoid season as these little kids take on America!
The X Factor and The One will do what they do best with no real standout difference in format. We can expect another elimination from The X Factor and possibly another two from The One.
Beauty & The Geek Australia is now down to five pairs of geeks and beauties as the format returns to its normal façade and the teams compete for that winning prize. What is that winning prize…?
Celebrity Apprentice is now down to ten competitors but by the time the week is up- that number will drop to eight! It’s a cruel world that boardroom!
So that’s the recap for the week and don’t forget- Celebrity Apprentice Australia MONDAY will be uploaded early Tuesday afternoon. I believe it is a challenge episode. Other than that, no other disturbances are expected.
Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!…
