The Many Faces of Monica Galetti

What is this face?? Seriously? What is this?

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.

  1. I really enjoy the faces, ridonculous or not, they make the show fun, lighten-up her serious poker face, and it makes me chuckle every time! I disagree with you about the producers encouraging this because she works at such a high level and standard of food prep that she surely finds the contestants’ poorly displayed basic skills laughable or cringe-worthy. But it’s a ratings booster (probably more people find her amusing than not), so the producers must be pleased. She’s a hard egg to crack, but it’s great fun to see her gush about anything. I think she is also fair in her ability to point out all the pros and cons of each performance. (If I could, I would widely open my eyes, stretch my lips in horror, and then smile in response to her).

    Thanks for your funny post!
