Alright, guys, we’re making some pretty good progress towards determining the next MasterChef. Last episode saw Anna go home, so at least now there’s one less uninteresting player in the field. If only someone would do something about Tanya. Maybe today’s the day.
The minis are paraded into the MasterChef kitchen, and no time is wasted. I mean, there’s no build up at all…it’s like everyone is just like “yeah, yeah, it’s time for another mystery box, we get it…”
Bastage tells them that sometimes he looks at the mystery box and asks himself “what would a TRUE MasterChef do with these ingredients?” He tells them that, today, they’ll get to find out. They’ve brought in a michelin rated chef took along side the minis. Gordie sends TG out to get the mystery chef, and tells us that the guy has come all the way from Chicago to be here. Who is it? The anticipation is killing me!
Oh, what a ripoff.
How funny would it be if TG’s dish got shat all over by Gordie and Bastage?
So, it turns out they’re not competing against him (as Teddy puts it, that would be totally unfair). Teddy ALSO tells them that, for the record, the question on his mind is
“WHAT’S IN THE FUCKIN’ BOX?!?!?”
Well, as AAliens put it… “I can’t believe my eyes…I see what looks like roadkill..” He then follows it up with “I’m definitely going to be in the top three…just knowing that I have a rabbit and I can do it two, three, four ways.”
So…if I’m understanding him right, all he needed was for Gordie to tell him that it was a rabbit, and now he’s good to go? Seriously, what makes him so confident about this challenge….could it be…?
I’m not saying it’s Aliens….but it’s Aliens…
So time starts and everyone gets moving. Stace-aholic tells us the person to beat in this competition is still…Becky. She says Becky has been in the top 3 of every mystery box.
Gordie and Bastage have a brief pow-wow about what they’d do. Gordie says he’d make a rabbit pot pie. Bastage would roast the whole rabbit and make a frittata. They also wonder how many of these guys will actually use the rabbit, because most of them probably don’t know how to butcher a rabbit properly.
They stop by TG’s station, and are super excited to see what he’s got in store for them. They keep talking to him, and suddenly “OUCH!!!”
Oh, Teddy. You silly rabbit. They wish him luck and move on.
Becky tells us she’s a bit intimidated, because she’s never butchered a rabbit…and she’s cooking it two different ways, hoping that one way is the right way. Clever girl…
Gordie stops by Josh’s station, and Josh tells him he’s making a rabbit paella. Gordie asks him where his rice is. He grabs the bag of forbidden rice that he was provided with in the mystery box, and tells Gordie he doesn’t even know what forbidden rice is. He opens it up, and…
Forbidden rice is black. Josh tells us it’s it’s going to turn everything else black as well. There’s a joke in here somewhere. I know there is.
Midnight Cowboy tells us his mom used to make rabbit stew all the time, so he’s doing that, and then cooking a leg just in case.
Bastage and Gordie keep fawning over Teddy and how he looks like a real chef in the kitchen. It’s a good thing…that’d be pretty rough if he looked lost and made shitty food, right?
Well, then, with 60 seconds left, Teddy still has nothing on his plate! WTF! Is he gonna blow it?!? Gordie tells him if his dish isn’t completed, he’s leaving the MasterChef kitchen. HAH! He runs into the back, and comes out with…something…a dessert? Did he make that earlier? Well, time is up. First called to the front, not surprisingly, is Teddy.
It looks like a real chef cooked this!!
