Although Top Chef Chile is already off and running with a wildly popular inaugural episode, not everything is going so well in the Master Chef Chile camp. After a long, final casting Sunday morning in Santiago, Twitter exploded with comments that the casting had been fixed. Bio Bio reports that one of the cast members, Maria Jesus Matthei, who was also Miss Chile 2013, was given the chance to compete on the show after she cooked a dish of crepes. Other competitors are saying the dish is just too simple to give Miss Chile a chance to compete.
Are we already witnessing a #GigiGate before the show even begins? Let’s not forget that Master Chef is based on amateur cooking skills, and is, at the end of the day, a television show. We’ll keep you posted with more drama. Check out the scandalous Tweets over at Bio Bio.
