MasterChef viewers think they've spotted a NSFW conspiracy in the show

‘It’s a life-changing experience’: Lisa Snowdon crowned winner of Celebrity Masterchef 2022

Forget flat earthers, Area 51 and Bigfoot, because the latest conspiracy theory that taking over TikTok is all about some NSFW set arrangements on MasterChef: The Professionals.

There's a dedicated TikTok account that has been monitoring every time ingredients are arranged to create a phallic shape on the BBC cooking competition, and viewers are convinced there's a "c**k and balls conspiracy theory."

TikTok account @flyzapper went viral after uploading a video on December 1 that showed two eggs and a stalk of rhubarb in a cheeky layout.

"MASTERCHEF PROMOTING C*** AND BALLS CONSPIRACY," the on-screen text read, as eerie music played to echo the suspicious placement.


This video quickly went viral, with over 2.3m views with people enthralled with this new conspiracy theory - and some were already convinced.

One person wrote: "I've seen 2 of these videos and honestly that's more than enough for me to believe it."

"Commenting to stay on MasterChef conspiracy tok," another person said.

Someone else added: "One hundred per cent the prop/set dress team are about to get pulled into a meeting lol"

But it didn't stop there as soon enough the TikToker spotted another set that had questionable positioning - this time a pair of limes and a glass bottle that happen to continue the "c*** and balls theory."

"The MasterChef C*** AND BALLS conspiracy continues," the on-screen text read.

Over 2.8m people viewed the follow-up piece of evidence and it only strengthened their belief.

One person wrote: "Now that’s a proper theory I can get behind."

"Some set intern is having the time of their life rn," another theorised.

Someone else said: "The fact u censored the word MasterChef and not the other two words has me rolling."

Is a third time a coincidence?

Since @flyzappeer was back again with a TikTok, with a new "t*****" conspiracy from the cooking show, with dubiously placed lemons.

This TikTok received 734,000 views, as people continued to share their theories.

One person wrote: "Man is onto something. This might be the single most important conspiracy of our time."

"Plot twist: the owner of the acc works on the set and Is the ones doing it," another person said.

Someone else joked: "You guys are seeing things that aren’t there (MasterChef hired me to say this)."

While another also spotted something else to support the "c*** and balls" theory in the bottom left of the screen.

They said: "Bottom leftish with the tomatoes(?) was definitely another one!"

But ultimately when it came to the MasterChef final, there was a disappointing update that there were no NSFW details in the last show.

Though the TikToker is determined for the MasterChef "c*** and balls" conspiracy theory to reach the masses.

“They were on to us,” they wrote in their recent video. “There are no cock and balls. But clearly this is real. I will not rest until the cock and balls conspiracy is blown wide open."

Viewers will certainly be keeping an eye out for this in the next series.
