There are 9 remaining home cooks on MasterChef and tonight, one of them will be leaving the show. But before that, it’s going to be mystery box challenge and elimination test once again for them. Which contestant will win the challenge and which contestants will face the elimination test once again?
It was a double elimination in the show’s previous episode in which the contestants must prepare pizza stone except for Becky who chose deep fryer since she’s the winner of the mystery challenge.
For the mystery box challenge, the amateur chefs will be faced with one of the most intimidating mystery box ingredients, “uni” or search urchin. The contestants must include this culinary delicacy into their dishes. The contestant who makes the most exceptional sea urchin dish will of course, have a significant advantage in the next round.
The chefs must be very careful in breaking the uni down as some of its spines are poisonous. How will Christine fare? It’s more dangerous than a live crab. Isn’t it? But of course, Chef Ramsay will be showing them how to break the uni properly. He tells them not to get intimidated by it. He shows them to nip the top, cut a nice smoothm round hole and take that out very carefully, then scooping the yellow meat.
Meanwhile, for the elimination challenge, the winner of the previous challenge gets to assign each of the remaining contestants one of the eight different types of fish. What will each contestant’s fish be?
Tali is going to sous vide his fish combined with a little bit of bacon fat and mustard sauce while David will make a devlied yellow tail with garlic aioli, potatoes and red cabbage coleslaw. However, the tuna will be completely raw, as cold as the ice in the middle. He chose to complicate the dish that he must hope it won’t take him down today.
Who will be the next amateur cook to leave tonight? While waiting for it, follow us on Twitter, add us on Google Plus or join us on Facebook for the results. Will David be the contestant to get eliminated on MasterChef’s July 9, 2012 episode? We’ll find out tonight.
