      i love watching Masterchef. I very much like watching Masterchef the Professionals. What an honour for all the chefs on the show to be working with Marco Pierre White. Could you imagine how great that would look on your resume when looking for a new restaurant to work at.
      I hope all the professionals do well. I do like Michael, and hope he does well. He deserves to win after that epic jinner challenge he had with Cameron. Cameron was the only chef that went to shake Marco and Matts hand and exchange a few words before leaving the show. He is young and he will do well.
      All the best to the Top 10, but hope Michael wins. Do Victoria proud, after all we are the state wih the best restaurants and the best food.
