If you spend enough time on the Internet, you may have definitely seen the video of a Pakistani contestant bringing biryani from a local eatery for judges on the Pakistan cooking show 'The Kitchen Master'. Interestingly, it is known that one has to cook and bring their own food on the show but somehow that seems to have eluded the contestant's understanding but at least managed to get many laughs. While it is debatable about the whole scene being staged, the judges were visibly shocked. Even then, the clip shows that the woman doesn’t budge and believes she should definitely get a chance, especially after all the effort she has put into bringing it on the show.
