Reality TV shows have been the talk of the town for ages. If you are wondering, these shows started back in 1940s-1950s.
Some of the successful reality TV shows are Fear Factors, The Amazing Race, Survivor, Wife Swap, America's Next Top Model, COPS etc.
The Amazing Race and Survivor used to be on my watchlist. The one I hate most is Big Brother. No way I am going to spend even one minute watching it. I am glad that the station took it off air. What sort of reality TV series do you watch there?
Has anyone been watching Masterchef? Never heard of it? I watched 1 of Masterchef UK's 9 seasons a while back. I have to say this is by far the best reality TV series.
At least from Masterchef you learn some very useful tips from those celebrity chefs. A bit different from the UK format though. I have to say it is better, unlike Gordon Ramsey who would just swear all the time in "Hell's Kitchen". I don't find that entertaining.
One of the simple things learnt was, to cook anything that grows below the ground you start with cold water and hot water for anything that grows above ground. That is, boil the potatoes from cold water to start with. We all do that subconsciously, don't we?
▲ I tried to make some "potato gnocchi with sautéed prawns in a burnt butter sage" the other day. It turned out absolutely perfect! It tasted so flavoursome compared to those I bought from the supermarket. There are tonnes of recipes at Masterchef's website.
Are you the type of person who will try something you see on TV?
