Adam and Joe once asked the listeners in their ‘Text The Nation’ feature, (you’ll need to download my illustrated guide to the Adam and Joe show to understand this reference, assuming of course, that you give a fuck. Which I doubt.) what people they absolutely hated on the telly and many, many people (including myself) emailed in to complain about Masterchef.
They mostly complained about the way Greg Wallace eats (holding the fork or spoon backwards and then slowly, very slowly pulling it out of his mouth).
But I’ve recently discovered that Monica Galletti’s face-pulling ability (A judge/su-chef on Professional Masterchef – BBC) positively infuriates me. Every single time the camera pans back to her, she has a new and entirely ri-donc-ulous face on.
In fact that largely seems to be her role on the show. Cooking is just an additional bonus. I’m sure the producers tell her to do this because the amount of faces and the sheer range involved can’t be accidental.
This both winds me up and simultaneously fascinates me so much I’ve taken to screen-grabbing every time she makes a face. Each of the images below are totally separate shots.
