Gordon Ramsay’s another cooking reality show is down to its top five and tonight, these home cooks will be taking on new challenges as they get closing to becoming the MasterChef. Who will win the challenges and who are in danger of going home?
The top five consists of Christine, Becky, Monti, Frank and Josh. David Martinez has been eliminated last week but he was offered a job in one of Graham Elliot’s restaurants. Even if he didn’t win, he got a job and that’s great, isn’t it?
Anyway, it’s the mystery box challenge and elimination challenge tonight, no team challenge. The task for the mystery box challenge is to create a dish that best represents each of the five remaining home cooks. There will be another game changing twist with this challenge. The one who will make a dish representing who they are will not be themselves, but their fellow contestants in front of them. They must get familiar with the new ingredients and make the dish.
Here’s what they got:
Becky got Josh’s box
Christine got Becky’s box
Monti got Christine’s box
Josh got Frank’s box
Frank got Monti’sbox
Becky will be committing a mistake and that’s forgetting the crispy chicken skin is in the oven. Will that cause her to be eliminated tonight?
Meanwhile, the elimination challenge will be about recreating one of Graham Elliot’s signature dishes. This is the Sashimi dish that he served to President Obama at his restaurant. In a limited amount of time, the contestants must be able to recreate that dish and for the first time, Gorday Ramsay is lost for words because of Christine’s dish, which comes out beautifully and delicious.
Again, the results will be posted. While waiting for it, follow us on Twitter, add us on Google Plus or join us on Facebook. Who gets eliminated on MasterChef’s August 21, 2012 episode? Who wins the challenges? Updates to be here.
Update: Monti was eliminated! Thoughts?
Detail will be posted later! No one was eliminated. It should have been Josh but he was reinstated. Lucky guy, don’t you think?
