12 questions everyone's pondering about Thursday's Masterchef

Another day, another round of cooking challenges on BBC’s Masterchef. On Thursday food critic Jay Rayner made an appearance and set the amateur cooks a challenge to make a dish using just three ingredients, followed by a dessert that would remind us of childhood.

But, of course, the good people of Twitter had a few questions.

1. Firstly, why could (almost) no one stick to the three ingredients brief.

Rabbit, spinach & mushrooms. He's nailed the three ingredients only brief. Only one so far. #masterchef

2. Why didn’t anyone think of this?

A dish with three ingredients? Easy. Weetabix, milk, sugar. #masterchef

3. With all that waiting your turn to bring your plate up, this is a question that’s been bothering all of us.

I'd love to know if the dishes on #masterchef are hot… Seems like alot of faffing to get it on the plate. Look good tho. #justwhackitout

4. Is that bold moustache a health and safety issue?

If the hipster is going to stay can we at least make him take away the moustache tips? #Masterchef

5. Have we seen Tony somewhere before?

Pretty sure the guy with the glasses and moustache used to play keyboards with The Hold Steady. #MasterChef

6. And why is it impossible to dislike him?

7. Is there something different about Greg?

8. No? Something else? 

Is it me or has Gregg Wallace lost some weight recently? #Masterchef

9. Besides, how does he balance his two very opposing jobs? 

How does greg Wallace cope with masterchef and weightwatchers ? #masterchef

10. Why can’t the challenges be more like this?

Cooking doesn't get tougher than this! Can our Chef's make a pudding out of cement, a ouiji board & a coffin full of mittens? #masterchef

11. Is this the best put down ever?

@jayrayner1 "kind of late career Elvis" what a great description! #Masterchef

12. But most importantly…

Only a half hour episode of #masterchef tonight?? THIS IS AN OUTRAGE
