This year’s season of MasterChef has been filled with delicious flavours, culinary twists, more of Matt Preston’s cravats and a lot of FISH.
On Monday night the two grand finalists for this season were announced, and while fans are all for Sashi’s place in the finale, a lot of viewers have some thoughts about Ben and his passion for seafood.
Many Twitter users were quick to remind others that Ben has had a habit of cooking fish dishes throughout the season, that are very, very similar.
