Mir Yeshiva Bochur on Master Chef

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
more frum people on reality TV... after the Gat Brothers success on Israel's reality Hakochav Haba, Ofir Ben Shitrit on The Voice, Fishel and Malki Berkowitz on The Biggest Loser and probably others I do not remember offhand.. now we have a yeshiva bochur from the Mir Yeshiva in Yerushalayim auditioning for a spot on the new season of cooking reality TV show Master Chef..
this guy has spunk, attitude, humor and confidence.. I like him.
Of course this raises, once again, the discussion of whether it is appropriate or not for haredim or generally frum people to participate in these shows, and especially the question of whether it is a kiddush hashem or not.
I still think the participation in these shows, on its own, does not constitute a kiddush hashem or a chilul hashem. If the contestant behaves properly, respectfully, in a way that sheds a good light on torah and religious people, then he can use that medium to make a kiddush hashem, just like he can by acting properly in any setting. And if, chalila, he should act improperly, and behave poorly, shedding a bad light on Torah and religion, then he can use that medium to create a chilul hashem.
