Last night on MasterChef…well, there was another fucking mystery box. I figured with only 5 left, they’d not be doing this. But they are. So that’s pretty crazy, right? The mystery box this time is three types of ground meats, which is a very challenging mystery box due to the sheer simplicity. The contestants get an hour to make something “grown up” with ground meat. The cooks go all over the place, with chili, meatloaf, meatballs, and shepherd’s pie. Well, there are two shepherd’s pies. One of them wins the challenge. Thankfully, it’s not the obnoxious, talky one.
So the elimination challenge is…to recreate one of Mr Gordon Ramsay’s signature dishes. The winner from the last challenge gets to choose the one, taste it first, and ask Gordie three questions. Do those questions pay off? Well, you’ll have to come back for the real deal to find out. Out of the 5 left, only one was able to come even close to Gordie’s dish…and it was the one I wanted to see fail the most. UUUUUUUUGH. I fear that she’s learned her lessons, sadly, and since no one knocked her out when she was fucking everything up, she may very well end up winning it all. Sigh.
