    We've been far too hard on Larissa lately, I have decided. Far from being a lazy dessert cook who only makes panna cottas, tonight you will see her really put herself out of her comfort zone and take a huge risk by making...a parfait. 🙄 So glad it didn't pay off and Tessa won instead. Derek seems to be losing the plot a bit. In what universe did it seem a good idea to add raw meat to native yams (which, by the way, are rather an obscene-looking vegetable, or is that just my filthy mind acting up again? 😂)

    Here's an article about the dreaded panna cottas!

    Back again. I've been wondering how to explain to overseas viewers what Vegemite is like, or even why Milo is so truly awesome and was an absolute gift in that challenge because as far as I am concerned, any dessert with Milo in it would be awesome! Fellow Aussies, do you have any ideas?

    Wow, the "tasting" innuendo was off the charts tonight. Matt: "We'd now like to taste...Derek!" Nicole, who is obviously missing her significant other: "I haven't been tasted in SOOO long!" 😂

    Today on the FB page, MC AU apologised to Maggie Beer for saying her verjuice has added sugar when it doesn't. So much for that guidance! 😂 They did do that in the past. Then they let Elise parfait her way into the top 4 (!) a couple of seasons ago. Oh, noooooo! Don't do it! 😂

    Wow...the Facebook page isn't a nice place. Someone commented under the thread about Sandeep leaving that it should have been "coke boy" Simon who went. And I don't think they were referring to soda. 😖

    Snap, @misgabi13!

    It seems all is right in the Sportsbet universe again because the most likely candidate to leave was Sandeep and so it proved. He was definitely going to struggle from here on if he was unwilling to venture out of his Indian comfort zone so it was the right decision, I think. I wonder if his Indian dishes were really the best the judges have ever had from any contestant, even Sashi? Maybe it's the pernicious influence of his "girlfriend" Larissa? 🤣

    You definitely need to save some side eye up for Larissa. I am starting to think she is the new Elise! I don't think they have had tonight's "cook identical dishes whilst separated by a wall" challenge for a couple of seasons. I don't know that it really tests cooking skills so much as testing the rapport contestants have with one another. Which is why Team Blonde (sorry, the Red Team) did well, because Nicole and Christina are friends, roommates in the house and often cook stuff together. And I think the ONLY reason Larissa and Ben were safe was purely because everyone else did worse. Ben is top 10. *facepalm* According to Sportsbet

    I did my usual express watch of the immunity episode after work tonight. It was pretty obvious from the get go that Tim was going to be the one chosen for round 2, which I then didn't watch but given what he usually likes to cook, he was never going to beat that guest chef. Meanwhile, here's a cute story about Steph's elimination (you might need to avert your eyes, @Myriad!) And guess what? Croissant lady auditioned for season 1 of MC AU - and she didn't get in!

    I think I would butcher those words too, and that is after learning French at school for five years several decades ago. 😂 Is it something like "meal foy"?

    And if you feel that way, @misgabi13, how are @Myriad and @xchouchoutex going to react to the French butchering? Must say, though, I REALLY could use a chocolate "qua-son" right about now. Man, that looked SO delicious! I quite liked the guest chef, too. Interesting career path to go from aerospace engineering to making croissants! Simon did a great job and very calmly worked his way through the steps. Derek, as he tends to do, went like a bull at a gate and made a crucial error early on and I think it knocked his confidence. He's just lucky that Steph stuffed up worse than he did. But the Sportsbet markets got this one right because Steph was a long way behind both Derek and Simon in the market order. Maybe the Abbey anomaly was just that?

    I have to say, I'm particularly pleased that nobody had to get out that damn liquid nitrogen at all tonight!

    I am wondering exactly when we entered a parallel MC AU universe where Ben ends up in an immunity challenge two weeks running. That's even more unlikely than Abbey's elimination the other night . Heston seemed a lot happier than last time he was on the show. Maybe he was glad to get away with only doing one episode! As for the elimination, let's see if Sportsbet are closer to the mark this time.

    Wow, I didn't see that coming at all! This might be the first year in a long time that the Sportsbet markets fail because Abbey was running in around fifth or sixth spot. Not to mention she's always been a judges' favourite, if not a viewers' favourite. I'm not as glad to see her go as I thought I'd be, however, because she certainly cooks better than quite a few who have managed to squeak by somehow (yes, I'm looking at you, Ben) so on that basis she should have had another couple of weeks at least.
