A 'sweet sixteen' party, now they are dragging the barrel out to find new ideas. And that party planner needed a serious slap, he's not the first one they have used nut he is most definately the most annoying. i also thought the mother looked like a stuck up moo half the time, although when she put down the planner for the lack of silver plates she went up a notch in my estimation - from terrible to simply awful.
I still find it amazing that one of this lot will get such a cool job at the end. Gordon looks like he mayhave bitten off more than he can chew as no-one seems to be able to find even a half decent balance of cooking skills, general attitude and leadership potential.
I did feel a little sorry for the chefs during the challenge, or more specifically the tasting, when the soon to be 16 year old announced she had never eaten shrimp or indeed had tried a variety of fish. i had to check the program hadn't been relocated to a central region, or the girl was a closet vege...but no I had heard correctly, Living by the seas and probably stuck to Burgers for a diet. Who's to blame I wonder?
the less said about the service the better, probably because it was so uneventful. Fish and Meat fell over at the crucial moments, and Bobby taking over Matts station, with Matt simply giving up, were they only highlights. No other highs or lows were worth noting....simply boring!!!!
Even the eviction lacked spirit, this despite Matt finally airing his grievances about lack of team work. Well if he stood up for himself it would help instead of being a walking sulking depression. Hopefully his move to the Reds will wake him up - and shake up the whole show.
My final thoughts:
Poor, very poor compared to most days. Who's to blame for this bunch and how much input does Gordon have in planning the challenge rewards (which again was almost passed over) or the 'alternate dining' services, this one in particular seeming forced!
