Reality shows- aren’t they always under the scanner??
From tales of it being rigged to favourites moving up the ladder- wouldn’t it be great to find some ‘secrets’ about these shows.
Tellychakkar.com decided to get the good-looking Ripudaman Handa, winner of MasterChef India 3, to reveal some of the unknown facts about the cooking reality series.
Ripu, who impressed all with his culinary skills as well as amiable personality, is today one of the most popular chefs across the globe. The dashing guy also participated in Nach Baliye with his girlfriend Shivangi Verma.
Prepped up to read his confessions?
Here we go....
Unlike what’s shown on TV, we do get time to think about the dish we will be preparing.
There is a time lap post we have prepared the dishes to the time it gets tasted by the judges.
Although we see only about a couple of rounds of auditions on TV, there are numerous tests that we have to pass before getting selected. I personally went through six auditions.
Contestants go through a lot of emotional challenges and there are times when one gets quite conscious in front of the camera.
Unlike what’s shown on TV, participants prepare two plates, of the exact quantity, presentation and taste. While one is tasted off camera by judges and other chefs, one is for the actual shoot infront of the camera.
All the contestants get to stay in the same apartment and spend time together. It is a very different experience. We shoot for three days, and then work on the VDs (video diaries) and then chill for the other days.
There are people who are so studious who spend their entire time reading cookery books. But it’s a fun time together.
Woaaah!! Would you have ever known so much about MasterChef India? Well, thank us later!
As reported by us, MasterChef 5 is won by Kirti Bhoutika (read here).
