Goodbye MasterChef, hello NZ's Got TalentBRIDGET JONES
This is a week of reality TV show beginnings and endings. It's like The Lion King's circle of life all over again, just without the wildebeest stampede.
New Zealand's favourite cooking competition (Come Dine with Me is obviously excluded due to its international status) MasterChef is winding things up on Tuesday.
And what a season it has been - there have been voluntary drop-outs, cheating, narking, some serious spunks, and of course some rather impressive cooking.
Now all there is to decide is who gets the fame, the glory and the prize money. Will it be the constantly stressed, but always consistent Ana Schwarz, who has missed seeing her baby's first birthday and first steps for a shot at culinary glory? Or will Chelsea Winter, the even more stressed, but rather likeable local, come from behind to be the victorious underdog?
Or should it really be someone else entirely? If you listen to the talk on the street (yip, MasterChef is a hot topic) surely the wonderfully laidback Brenton Thornton and "King Nark" Tony Price should be there rather than two Cheaty-McCheatersons. Swapping ingredients and all they got was a slap on the hand - that doesn't seem fair does it? So many questions, so much drama.
Personally, I reckon Winter should take it out. She may not have been a stand-out all season, but she's obviously got skills, she seems like she would be a natural for those Countdown ads on the telly and well, I just like her. At least it's only a few days until all is revealed, because the suspense is killing me.
So that's the goodbye, but this afternoon Auckland can say hello to New Zealand's Got Talent.
Auditions for our newest reality show kick off at Epsom Girls Grammar at 4pm today and the mind boggles as to who, or what, will turn up. Maybe there be some hidden gems that should have been famous ages ago or perhaps it will just be those horribly awkward types who (wrongly) think they have what it takes to be a star.
Either way, you know it's going to be good telly and surely that's all that matters.
I'm going to head down and check out the, ah, talent (check back here later on today to see what we find) but I think it's safe to say I will be leaving my recorder and sheet music to My Heart Will Go On at home. It would be wrong to steal the spotlight when I just do it for the love, right?
