Just watched it. They tried to build suspense but it just wasn't there.
I was left wondering about a lot of things - such as how they decided on their dishes. For example: Why would anyone choose monkfish when there's a choice of so many other things? And how would a supposed home cook even have a clue about monkfish no less have enough experience with it to choose it for such a crucial meal?
That great thing about cooking competitions is that choosing a winner is so subjective. I don't care if the assignment was to make a bowl of cheerios. We could imagine vacuous criticism like this:
"You put the milk in too early. Now they're too soggy." "You didn't add salt to the cheerios." "Those cheerios are the worst dish that's ever been prepared in Masterchef."
Similarly meaningless compliments could be:
"Great cook on those cheerios." "I would serve those cheerios in any of my restaurants." "The milk could have overpowered the dish but you made the cheerios the star."
The point is, any judge could say any of these things and there'd be no way to argue. Because so much is subjective when it comes to cooking and taste.
That said, Luca is going to win. As I mentioned previously, Natasha has an unpleasant personality and has said too many terrible things. Luca is going to win even if he accidentally burns his cheerios tonight. 😏
