Well, this flew by. Gordie is counting down, and everyone is scrambling because the “scramble” indicator light came on, and now it’s time for the judges to taste all three dishes.
Josh is called up first. Becky claps…awkwardly. He made curried cornish hen with basmati rice. He nailed it. Gordie loves it. Teddy loves it. Bastage tells him that it shows the best of who he is as a person.
Second up is DareDevil. She made a Vietnamese style stir fry dish with scallops and rice noodles. All three judges love her dish, too. Gordie tells her there’s only two things he wished he could change. He wishes her mom could be here to taste it, and he wishes she could see the dish…
Oh, Gordie, you’re so sweet. You always remember that I’m blind!
Becky is up last, and she made a Loup de Mer soup. Bastage immediately points out that the portions are too small for an entree. I’m not keen on the idea of a fish soup, honestly. All three judges basically say “X is pretty good, but ultimately it’s not good.” Becky gets really sad and tells them that she grew up eating unsophisticated food so maybe she’s trying too hard or something and she wants to -
Bitch, I’m from dagum Mississippi! We can’t even SPELL sophisticated down there! Hell, we probably can’t even spell “Mississippi!”
The judges are pretty disappointed with Becky, and don’t care much for her excuses. I’m still confused as shit as to why she didn’t go back to whatever brilliant dish she was going to make in her last mystery box.
The order of the finish is, from worst to best….Becky….then Josh….and DareDevil won. She says she’d have been pissed off if this f….sucker won. Josh laughs it off. I don’t think anyone can be mad that they lost to DareDevil.
Becky knows she’s in trouble, and tells the camera that she has to redeem herself. She’s now worrying too much, and will crack under the pressure. I can feel it coming. Both of my ponies out in back-to-back weeks.
So, the advantage of winning the mystery box is that you get first choice of the three ingredients they have set out for the elimination test. So DareDevil gets first pick, then Josh, and Becky is basically the nerd at a frat party – stuck with the leftovers.
The theme of the elimination challenge is…LEGS! Sexy time in the MasterChef kitchen!
The first legs are….leg of lamb.
Yeah, that’s pretty my face when I see some nice legs, too…
The next legs are…chicken legs. Man, if Whit was here, fried drumsticks somehow classied up and bam, winner on the spot. I think Josh is hoping for a shot at the chicken, too, judging by his face…
The last legs…are….frog legs. Alright, so it’s time to pick the ingredients. Don’t jump the gun, but it’s time for DareDevil to hop to it…
No, but seriously folks…Rrrrrrribbbiiiiitt….it’s time to pick
