Round of 10: Burgers
Iron Chef versus MasterChef. Iron Chef
won. Faruq lost... he lost BIG. Now only 10 remain.
Today, the cooks are cooking for the
backbone of America. They'll have to cook for "100 hungry-ass truck
drivers". And they'll be cooking the ultimate truck stop dish...
Burgers. They will have to pick and choose from the meat available AND
grind it themselves.
Jake won the Invention Test, so he'll
choose the teams.
BLUE: Jake, Tracy, Whitney, Lee, Tony
RED: Sharone, Mike, Slim, David, Sheetal
Each trucker will have a blue burger and
a red burger. Whosever burger gets the bill the best is safe.
They have 30 minutes to prep and select
their meat, buns, and toppings. Then the truckers arrive, hungry.
The Blues have a 100% beef burger with
loin and chuck, and to go on top, an old-fashioned coleslaw.
The Red will also go with a beef burger,
but they will have an eclectic group of fixings with bacon, blue cheese,
Swiss cheese, and a chipotle barbecue sauce. The judges think that
they've fallen prey to "the celebrity chef burger". The Blues remain
calm and collected. The Reds... 86 the blue cheese, as it melts through
the patties and ends up on the grill. They're going to have to redo
it...and quickly, because HERE COME THE TRUCKERS!
The first team to 51 votes will win the
The first votes to come in go to the red
on the back of Sharone's sauce. After 34 truckers, we're tied. In a bold
move to break the tie, Sharone decides to marinate everything in that
bacon grease. That may be a gamechanger, as the Blue Team gets a taste
of what's being served at the Red Team.
And by a score of 51-39... the RED TEAM
Identify 25 ingredients by sight alone.
Least ingredients is going home.
Lee: 10 (SAFE)
Whitney: 10 (SAFE)
Tracy needs 10 to stay alive... She gets
9... She picks out the red meat. "This is... Filet mignon." CORRECT!
That means that Tony is going home on "MasterChef" tonight.
We're down to nine chefs, and things are
about to get romantic. Who'll leave with a broken heart?
