Paula Deen isn't the only one with problems. New allegations about Masterchef

Which probably will never really come to light due to the contracts that the contestants sign.

And a link to the blog of the woman who made it into the top 100.

Where she talks about how they changed finalist Kathy... even dying her hair and changing her look. (And who knew that Bethy was Greek and hunts her own food with a bow?)

  1. How dreadful....US Masterchef this season I've found particularly offensive just with what's being shown onscreen. But the saving grace is always that hope that the bluster and nastiness is just for the cameras.

    That being said, following all this stuff with Deen, now would be the perfect time to get a settlement from Masterchef if you have a solid claim.

    1.'s new story about the Masterchef sexual harrassment allegations

      1. I don't see how a NDA could be enforced if you are being sexually assaulted or harassed. If these are legit concerns then they should take this to the courts and fight it.

        1. re: ylsf

          I would be interested in reading the contract. It is amazing what rights people will sign away for the chance to become rich and famous. (or get some time on national TV)

        2. "Contestants on MASTERCHEF are treated with the utmost respect and professionalism and we care tremendously about their well being."

          Um, no, not really. Not last week, especially. Howard was brutally humiliated in public for taking a risk with his cooking that didn't pay off.
