Two candidates trying to deceive the jury
During the trompe-l’oeil audition, two candidates tried to play the jury members. While the trompe l’oeil doesn’t quite look like the original potato, they decided to dip it in the dye to visually bring it closer to the pastry. Unfortunately for them, Chef Cyril Lignac randomly wanted to taste the potatoes and quickly exposed the deception. “This is the real potato?”asked Cyril Lignac, visibly surprised. Both candidates agreed immediately. “In fact, I wanted to cheat.”The pastry chef continued, causing all the candidates to laugh.
Apparently some netizens on Twitter did not appreciate this deception attempt: “They tricked the potato team a little by dipping the real team in the dye,” “I’m not for potatoes, they cheated by covering real potatoes with snow, I find that a shame and a bit of a cheat”Isn’t it cheating to modify the original item to look like a fake?we can read on the social network. This violation of the rules would finally have exhausted the judges, who did not punish the candidates for the attempt, But they were not satisfied with their realization.
