What keeps you coming back as judges every season? I was literally on the edge of my seat watching the first challenge. I ma doubtful that I will watch it next season because of the dishonesty and unfairness that I see. I truly believe the real judging is being done by the television network to create what they think is more colorful rather than what is artful. When the first show four seasons ago appeared I was hooked line and sinker. . MasterChef Canada is a cooking competition and considered a game show. Turning up the heat for the Top 24 this season are returning judges Michael Bonacini, Alvin Leung, and Claudio Aprile.

How different can that be going into Season 4? I must however state my feelings for the show in this season four.
Each episode eliminates the non-professional chefs that do not meet the judges food and taste requirements. I was scared to death the first time I showed up on set and saw the magnitude of the set and the number of cameras and the crew. That happens before the contestants even set foot in the MasterChef kitchen. I find that season four puts a very bad taste in my mouth because it is to my mind not at all honest and it has become deceitful in the way some contestants are spotlighted from the beginning. Claudio Aprile: It really set the tone for the next 11 episodes because it was very intense, unpredictable … no one had any idea what was happening until it happened.

The three judges include Claudio Aprile, Michael Bonacini and Alvin Leung.
But there are definitely moments within every episode, every season, where home cooks exceed those expectations. It put the fear of God into me. I believe that some contestants are let go because perhaps personal images on camera while other look beautiful etc. We have a lot of fun. Claudio Aprile: I really enjoy it. Are you still looking for the same high bar from these home cooks? Has that changed in Season 4? Michael Bonacini: I think, as the seasons progress, there is this for me, the next group of home cooks to be that much better than the season before and so on. Even you, as a viewer, think you know the rhythm and the routine.

My wife Ruth was diagnosed with terminal cancer and so I prepare all the meals and I truly enjoy every minute of it, even thought I feel stress in a different way. I found the Canadian show more humane then the American one in that it was more respectful of the feelings of an individual. There are 50 contestants at the beginning of the show, and the first episode eliminates many of the non-professional chefs down to 26 chefs. Once they get there the stress level only increases; this may just be the most dramatic and challenging season. Bell Media is one of the first media companies in North America to commit to producing all new original scripted series in 4K. Nothing else matters to me.
With every respect to the three judges and master chefs themselves:. I truly believe that they feel and think that they are helping to advance in the culinary arts, I truly believe that they are true and fine gentlemen. Returning on Thursday at 9 p. You all have restaurants to manage, so why do it? I am more troubled that three such fine people and great chefs would allow themselves to take part in this way. . .
