What happens every weekend in one of the realities most viewed in Colombia, MasterChef Celebrity, continues to be a recurring topic of discussion on social networks.
This Sunday, viewers witnessed a ‘field challenge’ held in the city of Cali. There the red teams faced each other (led by Catalina Maya) and Verde (led by Viña Machado), who had the captaincy for having previously won immunity.
During this challenge, the teams had to cook three types of fried foods: empanadas, marranitas and aborrajados, with their respective sauces and chili peppers.

Tensioning was the moment between Liss and Catalina in which they did not manage to prepare the 15 empanadas that were asked of them in the challenge.
Liss Pereira, another of the competitors, even commented that their pots had been turned off while others were about to burn, and that it was not known how so many were happening calamities on your computer.
“This is a game and we have to save ourselves; and, of course, if the other team won, we would save all 4”Maya confessed before the cameras.
This strategy outraged many on social media, who commented: “You have to be very rotten in the head not to understand the difference between a strategy and playing dirty”, Ensuring that the way Catalina and her friends played was not legitimate.
“Too bad that a family program supports the lack of morals and values that have done so much harm to our country with actions like the ones it did tonight,” said a user on Twitter, referring to Catalina Maya.

Other viewers, on the other hand, considered that this was a good strategy for the game and that criticizing it was ‘double standards’.
Catalina, is the representation of the day to day in Colombia, corruption, lack of ethics, unfair competition, sabotage of those who make an effort and give everything to not let them arrive. #MasterChefCelebrityCo
