- You’re banned for life: MasterChef’s George in ‘sell out’ Twitter spat [The Age] – Journalist and food writer Winsor Dobbin got more than he bargained for after a quick tweet deriding MasterChef’s George Calombaris for pimping Coles. Calombaris phoned him personally to complain, call Dobbin a moron, and ban the food critic for all fo Colambaris’ five restaurants. Seems Calombaris needs to stop reading Twitter. (Or maybe he’s just annoyed that the premiere of Celebrity Masterchef got caned on Twitter in favour of the Hey, Hey Reunion?)
