Elba Rodríguez, the winner of the 2014 edition of MasterChef Argentina, assured that, suffered a kind of injustice, for not having read the fine print of the contract which he signed with Telefe. It is that the cook revealed that she never received a weight from the book that her was carried forward with her recipes, and even carries her name and photo.
The revelation was released while they were discussing on the show There to See, the situation of Samanta Casais, the current finalist of Bake Off, who lied to the production by showing herself as an amateur, when she had extensive experience in the field. At that time, José María Listorti asked him if Telefe could prosecute the young pastry chef.
“Yes, sure,” Elba replied, and then added: “It happened to me with Telefe that one of the awards was the book edition. Both Planeta (the publisher) and the channel helped me a lot in editing. And I said, ‘Well, when it goes on sale, I’m going to receive at least a commission.’ ” However, that did not happen.
There was a question that Elba had not taken into account: “That was not specified in the contract. So, although the book has my photo and my name, I didn’t receive anything ”.
“It’s in the oven with fries”
Meanwhile, on the situation in Samanta, Elba said that the reality show confectioner participant “is in the oven with fries.”
“I think this girl is in the oven with fries. I just saw the video and the truth is that it is impressive … So it seems strange to me that this has escaped production, “she said.
Despite that, the MasterChef winner made reference to the fact that the definition of professional in pastry is not entirely clear.
Lastly, the cook commented that for her it would be a point in favor of Telefe, and in case everything that is said about Samanta is real, acknowledge the error and somehow gratify the participants. “I hope that the participants who were present will give some kind of a mime for the time that was invested and with respect to the followers, they should apologize for the mistake that was made as it was very evident.”
