I have to imagine that no one wants the frog legs. DareDevil goes with the chicken legs. The look on Becky’s face tells me she was somehow hoping for them to fall to her. That’s kinda silly. Josh tells them he doesn’t think Becky has ever cooked frog legs before so he’s gonna take the leg of lamb and see if he can’t eliminate her with the frog legs.
It turns out she’s never cooked, nor eaten, frog legs. The minis get 10 minutes to peruse the pantry before they go and start cooking. Josh tells us that this is their last competition before the finale, and it is definitely not time to be fuckin’ around with frog legs.
“I agree…think maybe I could get a re-do?”
Gordie tells them he has a surprise for them waiting in the MasterChef kitchen. Ha! It’s like when someone is throwing you a surprise party, so all of a sudden they plan a day of running errands with like two weeks in advance…I’m kidding, no one ever throws me a surprise party, so I don’t know if it actually works like that or not…
In case you hadn’t figured it out, it’s the other 15 minis. The judges quiz a few of them on who the winner will be. WannaHooch says DareDevil. Frank the Toaster says Becky. Flava Elevata says Josh.
So now the minis get an hour. All three of the minis tell us why they’re gonna be the one who wins.
The judges have their usual pow-wow about who’s in what position, and who would’ve taken which leg. Funny, they each say they’d have chosen the one they unveiled (and presumably chose to have as a part of this competition). They also point out that the pressure is really on the Beckster right now…
Becky tells us that Josh was trying to trip her up, for sure…or, Becky…MAYBE Josh doesn’t fucking know how to cook frog legs, either. Maybe he didn’t want them because he doesn’t want to lose and go home.
Gordie stops by DareDevil’s station first. She’s doing a southern style fried chicken. Gordie asks what she’s gonna do to make it good enough for master chef. She says she’s gonna fry it to perfection and serve it with some creamed kale.
HEY! That sounds AWFULLY familiar!!!
Unless I misremember, Whitney won with southern-style fried chicken and creamed collards. But it’s not like DareDevil WATCHED that happen, right?
So, as usual, one of the contestants is attempting to do something that’s more CRAZY than car dealer clearance sales. He’s trying to braise a leg of lamb (which, in his words, takes 7 hours) in 1 hour in a pressure cooker. Man, these things seem like gorram magic. I apparently must buy one.
Gordie stops by Becky’s station to give her some pointers about frog legs – namely that they can be overcooked super easily.
