Round of 12
July 11

It was all vegetables all the time in the Mystery Box, and that had Christian being beaten (though he wouldn't readily admit it at the time). As bad as that was, Jennie Kelley was sent packing after she failed to duplicate the reigning MasterChef's signature dish. And then there were 12.

TEAM CHALLENGE #3: Hollywood Party

Today's Team Challenge takes place at a Hollywood hotel's restaurant's rooftop. Not just any hotel... and not just any restaurant. "Welcome... to the London West Hollywood." That's right. We're at Gordon's. And they're going to be cooking for a Hollywood party, conceptualizing different hors d'oeuvres. The courses: vegetable, beef, and dessert.

TEAM BEN: Ben, Suzy, Tracy, Jennifer, Esther, Christine
TEAM CHRISTIAN: Christian, Adrien, Alejandra, Derrick, Giuseppe, Erryn

Ben's Angels vs. Alejandra's dudes. Most votes wins, of course.

They have 90 minutes to cater a Hollywood party, 600 hors d'oeuvres in 30 minutes. In Gordon Ramsay's own kitchen. Good freaking luck.

On the blue side, Suzy's delivering gazpacho, Christine has an open-faced Wellington, and Esther has chocolate profiteroles. Ben is running democratically, BUT Christian is all leader, all the time. He has gazpacho, beef tartare, and Italian profiteroles.

Gordon and Graham enter the kitchen to see what the captains are doing. Seems like vegetables and desserts are the same, so someone's going to have to change it. And yet Adrien & Suzy are going ahead with their gazpachos. Adrien is working on a duo for the gazpacho. As for the beef, Christine, if you remember, blazed her way through a filet Pressure Test. Beef Wellies should be no problem. Giuseppe's profiteroles didn't work right, so he's going to a fruit tart. Esther... same thing. And her second go at it... isn't better.

Giuseppe's dessert... better. Esther's... not so much. Will she be third time lucky?

Meanwhile, the Reds are torching their tartares (you supposed to do that?), Esther's profiteroles are FINALLY ready for filling... but their filling is ruined. They need a new dessert and they needed it YESTERDAY. They whip up macerated berries. Good one. Not.

The menus are...

- RED: Duo of Gazpacho
- BLUE: Tomato Mint Gazpacho

... I know Carson Kressley isn't telling me how to eat gazpacho.

- RED: Torched Beef Tartare
- BLUE: Mini-Beef Wellington

- RED: Berry & Mascarpone Tart
- BLUE: Fruit with Whipped Cream

Losers face a Pressure Test. Just a reminder...

WINNER: ... with a count of 53-47... REDS!

PRESSURE TEST #3: Layered Cake

The theme of this Pressure Test... a stunning, delicious, eye-capturing... layered cake, based on textures, taste, and visual impact. The teammates will have two hours to bake a cake with a minimum of six layers of sponge. The worst of the lot will be jettisoned from the MasterKitchen.

- Ben Starr: Pumpkin Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting & Candied Hazelnuts
- Suzy Singh: Ganache & Pecan Cake with Chantilly Cream and Raspberry
- Tracy Kontos: Chiffon Cake with Sweet Basil & Citrus Infused Icing
- Jennifer Behm: Banana Split Cake with Strawberries, Chocolate & Crushed Nuts
- Esther Kang: Lemon Raspberry Cake
- Christine Corley: Apricot Berry Cake with Hazelnut Liqueur

One of these cakes didn't make the cut.

Tracy, Jennifer, and Ben step forward... THEY'RE SAFE. Esther, Christine, and Suzy are the bottom three...

Christine... IS SAFE.


And Suzy is SAFE. FOR NOW.

That leaves us with 11. Next time, we unleash the biggest Mystery Box EVER... and Joe unleashes his biggest threat EVER.
