Me, too, and also on the 'worst case scenario'.

What's the worst that can happen to you?

You loose 2 days worth of pay from your job.

You may have to spend 2 months away from home.

Anything else?

Worth it?

I'd say yes. You wouldn't have applied and posted here if you didn't want to do it.

A sydney friend and I had a chance to audition for ready steady cook a couple of years back in Sydney. In the end I couldn't make it in the times they gave, but just for the experience I would say go for it!

I'd LOVE to see you on it though!!! I'd suggest learning any of the basics that you don't already know. Filleting a fish, handmaking pasta and pastry, deboning a chicken, and some dessert basics (that's where I'd fall down - puddings).

I couldn't agree more, I don't have a sweet tooth so never experiment with deserts

Simkin. I like the idea of doing it, but I have a very serious fear of failing (in life in general), which usually kicks in just before I start something, I tend to quit so that I can't fail. It is often when fairly close to success. I almost became a professional opera singer, but stopped just before as I could not face the fear of failure. Same goes for this. At the moment I think I have the courage for the audition, but not sure I could take getting my hopes up if I got any further.
I have accepted the audition invite, i probably will go, but won't let myself try and believe it will be more than that.

I can relate Moggy (although certainly not to being a great cook, an IT specialist or an opera singer) to not wanting to do things because of a fear of failure.

It's making yourself take one more step when you're not sure you can that's really difficult. I don't know the answer, as sometimes I've done it, sometimes I haven't. Admittedly, the times I've stepped forward, it has been successful. But that to me just means shorter odds of of failure in future, so it's harder and harder to do as time goes by.

Ask yourself 'how much will I regret not giving this a try?' You don't want to pass up a chance at something special. You never know where it could lead.

Even if it doesn't, what have you got to lose?

45 hectares between Whangarei and Paparoa
Herd of Registered Dexter cattle
New Hampshire Red poultry & Dorking poultry and Sicilian Buttercup poultry
Pilgrim Geese, Appleyard Ducks.
Polled Wiltshire Sheep, both black and white
An old Heading Dog called Lad and a cat called Pusscat,

The thing with failure is that its perfectly ok!! .. especially when you have nothing to lose, especially in a case like this :) There is no way you can come out of this without having learned something new. So try to look at the advantages.

You go for it!!! Just being chosen to go for the auditions means you can't have 'failed' (don't like that word........). How many haven't even got that far!

12 dogs, 6 cats, 1 x Hereford cross /Cassie/Casserole, 7 girlie sheep and of course Rambo and IggyPop! and chooks!

did you see the closeup bit on the coming MC NZ? they had the 3 judges and grilled them as to what they would be looking for. One is the winner of a masterchef competition 15 years ago.

Applications close oct 16, so still time to enter if others want a go :D
