The newest TV craze "The MasterChef: The Professionals" hold its second eviction booting out chef to the stars Anthony Bantoft.
Fans of the show seemed to have found delight and relief upon Anthony's eliminations. Some viewers commented that Bantoft deserved to go because of his behaviour in the show. Morover, many viewers disagree with his bad attitude towards other contestants.
Anthony served his "seafood five ways" dish, which was discriminated by Marco Pierre White as a "shipwreck". The judges seemed to be overwhelmed by the overly complicated dish that included a crab soufflé cooked in an egg cup.
Chef Anthony will join young cook Matty McKenzie who was first eliminated. Matty thanked the judges for his short time on the show.
But being eliminated from the competition did not shake the talented cook. "I know I'm good at what I do so I can leave with my head held high. Next time I'll remember to cook like an amateur," he joked.
Anthony is a known private chef to the rich and famous, Anthony Bantoft has cooked for the likes of Penelope Cruz, Sean Connery, Tommy Lee Jones and Andre Agassi.
MasterChef: The Professionals debuted on Sunday to 1.165 million viewers, but will face stiff competition next week when Channel 7's cooking hit My Kitchen Rules debuts on Monday.
Last year, My Kitchen Rules, with Pete Evans and Manu Feildel, was a ratings juggernaut, averaging more than 1.8 million viewers per episode.
MasterChef: The Professionals centres on 18 qualified cooks. It will battle against with My Kitchen Rules for the rating which will feature 12 state-based pairs of amateur cooks hosting 'instant restaurant' dinner parties.
According to media analyst Steve Allen, "MasterChef: The Professionals faces a tough test next week but I think it will hold its audience. My Kitchen Rules is a fabulous franchise bit it didn't have a big challenger (like MasterChef: The Professionals) last year. This clash boils down to whether the Aussie public is more interested in watching professional or amateur cooks on television."
