Round of 11
July 18

Ben took a "Starr" turn when he turned a disastrous Hollywood party at Gordon's restaurant into a winning performance of a layer cake in the Pressure Test. Unfortunately, Esther couldn't take the cake and is left with the bad taste of defeat in her mouth. Now only 11 remain as a new round is set to begin.


There are TWO Mystery Boxes today... One in front of each cook, and one in front of the judges. In the cook's box... nothing but vegetables, bacon, spices, pasta, and butter. This is not a repeat. In the large Mystery Box... the largest in MasterChef history.... LIVE FOUR-POUND LOBSTERS! And you're going to have to grab it yourselves.

Seventy-five minutes to make a beautiful sumptuous lobster dish.... STARTING NOW!

Selection of the top three will be based on presentation.

And Christian... is causing mayhem. His dish is imploding, and he is begging for new ingredients. He has some thanks to his competitors, and now he has five minutes to think of something.

The top three...

- Derrick Prince: Butter Poached Lobster with Potato Puree and Tomato Mango Salad (this is Derrick's first final table)
- Alejandra Schraeder: Thai Style Grilled Lobster with Red Curry & Mango Salsa (Alejandra's third final table)
- Jennifer Behm: Baked Lobster with Roasted Fennel and Mashed Potatoes (Jennifer's second final table)

Christian thought he should've been in the final three... But he cooks angry. You cook angry, you make angry food. Sorry. And it looks like Christian's not even paying attention to Jennifer's critique. And Joe calls him on it, saying that if he's going to show no respect to his competitors, he's going to personally come over there and throw him out of the kitchen. He's bald. He means business.

And speaking of business.... Jennifer won the last Mystery Box. Will she win again? The winner of these... Mystery Boxes... JENNIFER! Two in a row! Her advantage... Jennifer will control the main ingredients of food in...

ELIMINATION TEST #4: Aphrodisiacs

Notice the evil laughter in Jennifer's voice. She will have to choose amongst...

- oysters...
- artichokes...
- truffles...

Jennifer's choice.... the most amazing... $500 black perigold truffle. EACH.

And Jennifer gets another advantage... she... doesn't have to cook today IF she doesn't want to. She could go up to the gallery with a bottle of Moet and go crazy. OR... she could stay and cook knowing that she may be eliminated if she loses. A phrase we at GSNN love to throw around... SHE'S GOING FOR IT!

One hour... one romantic sensual... sexy.... dish. TIME FOR SEXY TIME!

Plug the knife, Graham... for money. Okay, let's see some dishes.

- Tracy Kontos: Truffle & Sweet Corn Soup ("light & ethereal... and supersexy")
- Christian Collins: Pan-Seared Filet with Truffle-Infused Custard
- Giuseppe Morisco: Spinach, Pancetta & Truffle Taglioini
- Adrien Nieto: Seared Filet Mignon on Truffle Mash (flavor-wise, it is "disappointing" and a "categorical abomination")... He must like it rough.
- Erryn Cobb: Truffle Steak and Truffle Vegetable. Nothing about that dish worked.
- Alejandra Schraeder: Veal Cutlets with Truffle, Leek & Marsala Sauce (slimy)
- Jennifer Behm: Coddled Eggs & Truffles (under-coddled)

The top two today.... TRACY and GIUSEPPE. They will be captains tomorrow.

In the bottom three... ERRYN, ADRIEN, and ... JENNIFER! Should've taken the out.

JENNIFER... is saved by a worse dish. ...

... and that dish belonged.. by his own admission.... to ERRYN.

That leaves ten on station for tomorrow's Field Team Challenge... and it promises to be the mother of all challenges.
