as far as masterchef canada goes, i like the english judge and the other dark haired guy, but the asian dude is annoying. he sort if sounds like an asian elmer fudd that has a chip on his shoulder. it's difficult to take that seriously.
we have gordon ramsay for that part, but for some reason it feels ok to be told to f off by a guy with a strong english accent, lol. like it's still sort of polite.

but it's also the production values that are kinda weird with m-chef canada. oddly quick cuts, bad lighting and strangely timed close ups mixed in with an otherwise enjoyable show.
" for some reason it feels ok to be told to f off by a guy with a strong english accent, lol. like it's still sort of polite." It might be prevalent on television but I can assure you that it is considered far from polite in real life in the UK.

Oddly enough, we tend to think that it's acceptable in the USA - probably due to the widespread use of it in films.

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
