I’m not liking the excessive focus on the human wreckage that is the second series of MasterChef Australia. It’s nasty stuff, although for some quite compelling TV I’m sure.

Some contestants are keeping their heads down and they’ll emerge later in the series as the real contenders. But how long must we endure the seemingly endless line of pseudo-cooks breaking down every time the slightest pressure is applied? Tread carefully ye producers of MasterChef.
