Fox’s MasterChef Doctored Crowd Shots To Boost Numbers
You can’t make this stuff up, and you can’t exactly get away with it either:
Fox’s MasterChef cooked up a hilarious blunder by doctoring a scene that shows hordes of people trying out for the show.click through to see the photo and full story.
In the opening sequence of Gordon Ramsay’s latest cooking competition, there’s an American Idol-style shot of an excited crowd waiting to audition. The voiceover claims “thousands upon thousands lined up” to try out for the show’s second season.
Except if you look closely, producers replicated portions of the crowd to make the group appear larger than it really was. Here’s a screen shot and an exclusive response from the producers, below. Notice the circled areas show the same clusters of people used twice (including a very obvious woman in a bright orange hoodie)
Fox admits that the photo was “enhanced” in post-production.
