Probably a good pick for her. For one, Becky and her have worked together pretty well i the past. And then there’s the part where Josh is pissed at Frank for not saving him. Josh is just the kind of crybaby who quite possibly would WANT to lose this team event so he has a chance to knock Frank out. You know who else wants that to happen? The ratings.
They should’ve titled this episode “Josh wants redemption for something that only he thinks he should be angry about.”
The challenge is to prepare a three-course meal for these six judges. They get 90 minutes to knock this out.
Bastage considers Becky and DareDevil the Dream Team. DareDevil has the palate, and and Becky can plate with finesse. What about the actual cooking part? They both seem to be good at that, too.
Right out of the gates, Beckster and DareDevil are on the same page, while Frankie and Josh…
Looks like it’s going well, right?
Becky and DareDevil are doing an Asian menu. Playing to DareDevil’s strengths, I suppose..and Becky has shown that she can handle that, too. Gordie tells them not to disappoint him.
Josh and Frank are doing a spring vegetable terrine. Gordie expresses some concerns, which is never a good thing on this show. They’re doing a lamb saddle for the entree, at which point Gordie asks where Josh is on the menu. He’s handling the dessert – a white chocolate mousse. Gordie & Co are terrified of the vegetable terrine.
Of course, somehow there are 15 minutes left, and for some reason the three guest judges are still en route to the MasterChef dining hall. In LA traffic?!? Are they crazy?!?
The judges talk it out, and decide that Frank/Josh’s menu is perhaps a bit more favorable to the guest judges than Becky/DareDevil’s…provided they pull it off. And, provided the spring vegetable terrine doesn’t ruin everything, like they seem to think it will.
And, of course, right on time, the special VIP judges arrive. Everyone turns around to watch as they walk in the front door and strike an intimidating pose.
TG puts on his best “sexy lip-bite.”
They re-introduce the judges again, in case we’d already forgotten them. Teddy snaps everyone back into action.
Time ticks down, and everyone polishes off their dishes at the same time, yet again. The MasterChef Waiters come and take everything away. Becky is certain to instruct the waiters to put the kettle of broth for her app on the right side, since they’ll be pouring it from the right. Unless they’re a lefty, that is.
So the apps are served, and the 6 judges sit down to their first course. Becky/DareDevil’s app is served first. I don’t understand french, but it sounds like they’re saying the broth lacks seasoning. One judge really likes the delicacy of the dish, though. The veggie terrine, on the other hand, seams a little heavy-handed, and there’s too much gelatin.
