Someone posted a thread in the UK forum, but most people missed that, so there are few posts there. It's better here, and this is the right place for it.

The Miss Know-it-all is very annoying.

Annoying? Astonishing more like. Had it entirely escaped her notice that she is the last to cook? Is she really that clueless? I smell payback.

Sometimes I wonder if people are doing it for a bet. Hard to believe anyone can be that dense. Sadly, if they are they'll learn nothing from the experience. Should be fun to watch though.

Karma, anyone?

Karma indeed.

She appears to be quite clueless as well. I have never eaten lamb shank so undercooked like that.

Thing was the others didn't have to be catty with her or deliberately under mark her at all - she completely cocked up her main course and shot herself in the foot.

I found her rudeness towards everyone else's efforts totally unacceptable, and as you say you can get way with that sort of thing if you have cooked and been scored first, but to behave like that when you go last is just suicidal!

Oh dear Carolyn. I'm sure she's got lots of friends who think she's lovely and kind and generous but honestly ... I have a suspicion she's OD'd on Jilly Cooper but hasn't been able to get to grips with the charm, wit, and warmth.

Lokking at Twitter - it appears this whole week was a stitch up for the producers - it was all a big act by the contestants ..... reading the tweets - they decided that Carolyn was going to look bad deliberately... but Im not sure that badly cooked lamb was deliberate.....

I'm rubbish at Twitter - can't find anything about a stitch up. I did find Katy saying she called Carolyn "the wicked witch of the west" but they cut it! https://twitter.com/IAMMRSSPENCE/sta...95888344043520

Can you give a link or two to the stitch up comments? Thanks!!

Google on Carolyn Whiley and you get her Twitter coming up - she and adie actually seem the best of pals, Katy's twitter shows a couple of interesting photos too!

There are also some interesting comments on the CDWM Facebook page with Sylwia saying don't believe all you see!

I expect the producers convinced her she'd be the "interesting one" and "star" by being hyper critical. Apart from her criticising everyone's food they did seem to get along ok so I don't find it hard to believe they have become friends of some sort. There didn't seem to be the awkward silences and tension that some weeks have!!

But if she thought a clip of her insulting a dinner someone prepared for her wasn't going to make her a target for viewers she's pretty naive!! (And if she was doing it because she had been 'asked' to by the producers she must have know there was a good chance it will be included in the final edit.)

And she can't blame her rubbish cooking on the producers!

I often think that people give the producers of shows like this WAY too much credit for stitching up contestants. Many people are well able to stitch themselves up and make fools of themselves without any help whatsoever. You'd have to be incredibly stupid to believe that you're going to gain anything by behaving like a tw*t on TV, and despite not knowing how lamb shanks should be cooked, Carolyn didn't strike me as being dumb as a box of rocks.

Oh I agree. And I generally don't buy much into the 'stitch up' theories. I was trying (and failing!) to make the point that even if she was encouraged by the producers she doesn't come out of it well!

First time I've watched the show in nearly a year, and I remember why I stopped watching. Annoying adults trying their hardest to be children. It's hasn't been about the dining for a long time, and all the 'personalities' are stereotypes. Too boring.

A rather generally good group of people this week I think, no one really objectionable. Seems to remember more the breasts than the cooking - the wobbling breasts of the zumba teacher, and the guy who seems to have a bigger chest than some of the girls.

I guess the guy is a bit incompetent, the guests however came across worse and disagreeable, but most of all I'd like to punch the blonde in the face.

Whatever has the poor guy done to make all the women so patronising and unpleasant to him? The blonde is the worst but none of them are coming out of it well. He might not be a good cook but how does that justify sneering at the things he enjoys? Imagine what they'd all say if he behaved like that towards them! Grrrrr.

It's one thing to criticise his cooking, but making snide remarks and funny looks about the guy's ambition or personal belongs is just a bit cheap. I hope for their sake they didn't come up with the idea of praying for good food (let's be charitable and say that it's the producer's idea), it made them looked like they are ganging up against that person. The blonde however was just being gratuitously rude with her facial expressions, and she is supposed to be one who knows how not to be rude (rolleyes).

Last week the people in the show seem to be OK, we had a group who can get along well and banter with good humour, this week most of them seem to be on the side of unpleasant (the guy, however incompetent he may be as a cook, seems to be the most innocuous one). I think I would like to see how they behave later in the week to decide if they are nasty or not. Not a great advert for the people of Aberdeen so far.

I agree they are a particularly horrible bunch this week, that blonde woman is particular;y awful. The scores were just mean, I know his cooking was abysmal, but nobody deserves a 2! I felt a bit sorry for him

I want to see the stuck up blonde bint crash and burn on her evening - she is such a cow, and the other women are just as bad.

And don't get me started on the chauvinistic Kiwi.....

Apart from the actor lad the really are an unpleasant bunch this week
