    Masterchef 5 Pool

    Masterchef 5
    Season Premiere MON 8/7c MAY 26

    I will be running a pool for the show again this season. It's too early to post pool details yet. 30 contestants have been revealed but I'm not sure how many of them will make it past the first episode. I wanted to get the pool thread started anyway. I'll let you know scoring details, the registration deadline, and the choices for your pool team when the final cast is revealed.

    Heh, I dropped out mid season last time, but now that I see you're running a pool, I just might get back into it.

    I'm sorry I'm running behind on posting pool information. I had thought there was going to be an audition process this season like there was last season but there wasn't. I'm going to extend the registration period so you can see the next episode before having to submit your team. I'll post details later today. I'm also working on a forum banner.

    Re: Masterchef 5 Pool

    I haven't even begun to think about who to choose for my pool team. I didn't see the first episode until Tuesday night and I need to rewatch it.

    I have decided on a team name, though--Hot Fudge Sundae. It just sounds right to me. Maybe it's because I'm craving one!

    If I win the pool, that will be the cherry on top of my sundae.

    Re: Masterchef 5 Pool

    Do we choose a mascot or symbol, like how we had animals with "Survivor"?

    Re: Masterchef 5 Pool

    I was considering doing an avatar theme but couldn't come up with anything so no mascot or symbol required. If there's something specific you want for your pool avatar, just let me know. Otherwise, I'll pick something for you.

    Re: Masterchef 5 Pool

    Hey pikachu - I have never before entered one of your awesome pools, but I think I will dip my toe into the waters for this one. I am going to wait until after tonight's show to make my final choices, but I have narrowed down my team name to either Team Strip Steak (go Philly!) or Team No Filthy Floors (go home Astrid!!). I think I am leaning more towards Team Strip Steak.
