‘She put WHAT in the chicken?’ Celebrity MasterChef viewers are left in stitches as Strictly star Oti Mabuse mispronounces ‘cumin’

  • Strictly star Oti Mabuse, 29, was cratering a dish with Dame Sandra Rhodes 
  • Marinating a chicken dish for London Zoo workers on BBC’s Master Chef
  • Pronounced ‘cumin’ the wrong way and many thought it sounded rude

Celebrity MasterChef viewers were left in stitches last night as Strictly star Oti Mabuse mispronounced ‘cumin’.

The dancer, 29, was teamed up with fellow contestant Dame Sandra Rhodes at London Zoo on the BBC show last night. As part of their challenge she was marinating a chicken dish for the zookeepers, when she made the slip-up.

When explaining what spices she’d had added to the chicken she said she’d used ‘cumin’ – but she pronounced it in the wrong way – and many thought it sounded rude. 

Hundreds of fans of the show took to Twitter to comment on the way she said the word, with one even joking, ‘I think I’ll avoid the chicken.’

It was the second night for the celebrity wannabe chefs – as they took to professional kitchens and worked in teams of two to provide food for staff at London Zoo.

Oti and Sandra decided on a chicken dish and you see her add in spices and marinate the chicken, before she turned to the camera and said: ‘I’ve kind of used a lot of spices so we want to make it feel really full of flavours.

‘So I’ve put some cumin, I’ve put some Thai sauces, and I’ve put tumeric.

‘I put salt, I put pepper, and a lot of oil just to keep the moisture in so that it doesn’t dry.’

However Oti pronounced the spice the American way – calling it ‘c**-in’. The correct way to say it in the UK pronunciation is “cue-min”. 

Fans of the show found it hilarious, with saying: ‘She say cummin? She meant cumin, yh?

One more said: ‘I beg your pardon @OtiMabuse – you put what in the chicken?’

While another said that they were going with another choice of food: ‘Unfortunate choice of filling for the chicken Oti….I’m going for the Thai curry now.’ 

Fans of the show found it hilarious, joking that they may not eat her chicken with her ‘different’ sort of spice 

Despite the mishap the chicken went down well with the zoo keepers, with one calling it ‘spot on’ when it was served with cous cous and salad

While one thought that her special spices may be a bit too much: ‘Think I’ll skip Oti’s special spices on her chicken this time round if that’s okay. Thanks!’ 

Despite the mishap the chicken went down well with the zoo keepers, with one calling it ‘spot on’ when it was served with cous cous and salad. 

While the judges even said they were impressed with their ‘batch cooking skills’ and said that the ‘flavours were superb.’
