I admit it. I was a devotee of Masterchef from the beginning. I became addicted to watching it, attached to the contestants (though not all) and understand the strange 'thing' that women viewers seem to have about the cravat wearing, guitarface pulling, witty, heart of marshmallow Matt 'Man Mountain' Preston.
Marieke Hardy was the first to proudly express her crush in print (but then she had that strange crush on Bob Ellis). Then Miranda Devine jumped on the bandwagon and now everywhere you look women are expressing their admiration for Matt or as the blogger Not Quite Nigella http://www.notquitenigella.com/2009/07/04/waking-up-with-gordon-ramsay-the-masterchef-boys-the-good-food-wine-show/ calls him, Everyone's favourite Sexy Beast. Then I came across this cartoon on the crikey website. Here's a link if you can't read it. http://www.crikey.com.au/2009/07/15/first-dog-on-the-moon-357/
And of course well done Julie.
