Martha Kalifatidis goes full ‘Gordon Ramsay’ in a Celebrity Apprentice kitchen meltdown

Martha Kalifatidis has previously revealed her presence on the set of Celebrity Apprentice Australia led some of her co-stars to complain to producers.

The Married At First Sight star believed their complaint was due to the fact an ‘influencer’ was on a ‘celebrity’ show – but perhaps they were more angry about her constant tirades and petty comments.

She turned full Gordon Ramsay in a Yum Cha cooking challenge on Tuesday’s episode, bossing Australian Ninja Warrior regular Olivia Vivian around like she was just another ingredient in her ego-trip salad.

The challenge pitted Team Momentum up against Team Fun-Raisers to see who could make the most money running Yum Cha at the Cabravale Diggers Club. 

Olivia was elected to be Momentum’s team leader for the challenge, with Australian Idol alum Anthony Callea heading up Team Fun-Raisers.

But the four-time Ninja Warrior star was treated with little respect and couldn’t get a word in over Martha.

So much for that! Olivia (pictured) was elected to be Momentum's team leader for the challenge. But with Martha on the team, Olivia couldn't get a word in

‘Let’s take note that we can’t just make careless mistakes,’ she needlessly reminded Olivia and one of the Veronicas twins before cooking began.

That’s about as condescending as reminding a lollipop lady to ‘hold her stop sign up!’

‘Martha could make a good head chef because she does order people around very easily,’ Olivia told producers in a piece to camera.

Duh! 'Let's take note that we can't just make careless mistakes,' she needlessly reminded Olivia and one of the Veronicas twins before cooking began

Martha agreed: ‘I would make a really good head chef because I’m not afraid to tell people what the f**k to do [and] when the f**k to do it.’

The show cut to the beauty influencer screaming, ‘Olivia get all my ingredients out!’ – a task that a head chef can usually handle themselves.  

Her tantrum became a full-on meltdown after the only real cook in the kitchen – Diggers Club head chef Stevenson Su – asked her where the dumpling pastries were.

Martha agreed: 'I would make a really good head chef because I'm not afraid to tell people what the f**k to do, when the f**k to do it'

Two sides, same coin: The pair agreed Martha would make a good head chef, although their reasoning varied. Olivia said she ‘orders people around easily’. Martha described herself as being ‘unafraid to tell people what the f**k to do [and] when the f**k to do it’

It turned out her teammates Shaynna Blaze and David Genat had forgotten to buy them from the shops.

Naturally Olivia, the Veronica and Martha weren’t in the position to resolve the situation – they were busy preparing the rest of the ingredients.  

Martha’s reaction? ‘We have no pastry! Olivia! You have to do something.’

Her self-appointed personal assistant slunk off to call Shaynna and David, who were at the shops and could simply buy the pastry.  

‘Right now I could make Gordon Ramsay look like a kitten,’ Martha later admitted.

Last week the 32-year-old told Who magazine: ‘They (co-stars) said to me after filming, “I literally said to production if there are any MAFS or reality TV people on this show I don’t want to be involved,”‘

‘When I walked in a lot of people rolled their eyes.’

‘I had to work really hard to change that – I’m not complaining about it, it’s always like that for me and I’m happy to do that.’

The part of the season where Martha ‘works hard’ to change people’s opinions has clearly not yet aired. Don’t hold your breath. 

Surprise! This comes a week after Martha told Who magazine that some co-stars complained and threatened to quit when they found out she was cast. Martha claimed she had to work hard to change their opinions
