Sweden’s master chef is back with a resounding, exciting and sweaty season where amateur chefs from all over the country get the chance to compete in what they love most of all – cooking. The season will literally be lined with blood, sweat and tears.
This year the jury consists of Mischa Billing, Tom Sjöstedt and Tommy Myllymäki.
All three are widely celebrated in their fields of food and wine, so it is perhaps not so strange that many of the contestants get a little shaky on the hand when the jury passes by the competition kitchen and looks down into the participants’ pans. However, this is something that the viewers have become very upset about as they believe that the jury exposes the amateur chefs to unnecessary stress.
Some of the comments have included:
“Why do they have to go ahead and disturb when they know the stress is total?”
“Shame on the jury’s way of behaving towards the participants”
“Can’t they just let them cook?”
The participant Hugo jokingly wrote on Instagram “Find a worse timing” during a clip of when the jury arrives and “disrupts”. The juror Mischa Billing then chose to enter and answer:
“Was the best I think”.
However, the jury has previously said that it is all a deliberate strategy to see how well the participants can withstand stress.
Therefore, the viewers recognize Fredrik Britz
Many viewers have now begun to rub their brains as they think that the participant Fredrik Britz feels familiar. Fredrik is 31 years old and works as a restaurant manager. But he has actually been seen in the box before, which the viewers were quick to sneak out.
He has been part of Hela Sweden bakes in 2017.
But now we see him struggle through the stages of Sweden’s master chef, and so far we can truly say that we are impressed.
