What’s better than televised competition shows? YouTubers competing on them, of course!
Everyone knows that us Brits love some good TV. We bow to the gods of Bake Off and cower from Cowell on BGT. Well, get ready to press Series Link because Celebrity MasterChef is about to get a familiar face, someone we have a *slight* obsession with…
Who is this familiar face, you ask? Well, none other than our fav, Marcus Butler! Yes, the Marky Butt Butt will be grabbing an apron and competing against pop stars, television personalities, and former athletes for the title of Celebrity MasterChef Champion, a title we’re sure he’ll win.
Have your doubts? Well, let us prove to you that Marcus has what it takes to be the next winner. Trust us, we know what we’re talking about.
1. He launched his own healthy subscription box
Last December, Marcus launched SourcedBox with Niomi Smart with the aim of incorporating healthy snacks into the busy lives of their viewers. Both he and Niomi hand-pick the delicious snacks that go into the boxes, which means we can trust Marcus to pick the right ingredients for his meals and wow the judges, who’ll be speechless.
2. He’s BFFs with Margaret
Don’t deny it, you totally wish you had a BFF as cool and talented as Margaret.
As this video shows, Margaret is quite the talented cook, so obviously, she’ll be able to offer Marcus some tips before he heads into the MasterChef ring. Look at her whisking skills, the way she decorates. With Margaret on his side, how could Marcus possibly lose!
3. Jamie Oliver’s got his back
Well, you can’t spend a day with someone like Jamie Oliver without some of his talent rubbing off you. Marcus, channel your inner Jamie Oliver and you’re sure to win. Not sure how? Just be sure to describe your food in the most loving (and slightly hilarious) way possible.
While we’re here, can we request a FoodTube collab? We think it’d be dashing! (Get it? “Dash” is a cooking term and we said “dashing”… No? Okay…)
4. He’s got presentation swag
We all know that half the battle of cooking is getting the presentation just right and, if you look at Marcus’s Instagram, you know he’s a natural talent! Doesn’t that yoghurt and avocado toast look simply delicious?
Hey, if his food doesn’t end up tasting good, at least it’ll look nice!
5. He’s tried food from around the world
Step aside Yorkshire puddings and fish-and-chips. You’ve got nothing on the dishes Marcus will be bringing to the table. Just take one look at his channel and you’ll see loads of Trying [Insert Country Here] Food videos – and we mean a lot.
Having tried such a variety of food, Marcus has the knowledge to make the most exotic dishes. We’re telling you, the judges have no idea what they’re in for!
6. He knows how to make healthy taste good
You know what’s better than eating tasty food? Eating tasty food that’s actually healthy for you! As we all know, Marcus is big into the healthy food scene and has become a master at making veggies and other healthy foods taste good (who knew it was possible?!).
So not only will he be wowing the judges with how exotic his dishes are, he’ll also receive marks for how healthy they are!
Can’t take the anticipation?
Ugh, us neither! Why can’t it be June already? We seriously can’t wait to support Marcus and show the mainstream world that YouTubers got skillz, bro. While you wait, why don’t you check out our other articles:
