Round of 10
July 19

Last night on Gordon Ramsay's OTHER show, the biggest Mystery Box ever unleashed Christian's dark side, prompting Joe to take his ass to school. In the Elimination Test, Jennifer could've chosen a bottle of Moet and a balcony seat over a $500 truffle and her station. It was a decision that she was THIS CLOSE to regretting, as Erryn took her bullet. The competition now continues with 10.

TEAM CHALLENGE #4: Lunch with Mom

The top 10 converge on the grounds of the Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa in Pasadena for lunch with three VIP guests...

First, the pick...

TEAM TRACY (blue): Tracy, Adrien, Christian, Jennifer, Christine
TEAM GIUSEPPE (red): Giuseppe, Alejandra, Ben, Suzy, Derrick

And now... the guest judges... The judges' mothers. And allow me to have a foodie-gasm here. Joe's mother is Lidia Bastianich, the queen of Italian cuisine in America...... I'M NOT WORTHY! I'M NOT WORTHY! I'M NOT WORTHY! The other two lovely ladies: Helen Ramsay and Kate Bowles.

The captains will have a few minutes with the mothers to see what they like and dislike. Gordon's mum doesn't like fish. She does like pasta. She doesn't like tarts, but the other two moms do.

Now the teams have an hour to plan and cook a three-course lunch with appetizer, entree, and dessert. Best two out of three courses wins.

And the polenta cakes are falling apart on Giuseppe's side. We have no pans, no plans, and no time. Over on the blues, Christian has no problems voicing his opinions.

Time to serve.

- BLUE: Carrot Ginger Soup
- RED: Mixed Green Salad with Crispy Polenta
WINNER: RED (RED lead, 1-0)

The rest of the team has 10 minutes to perfect the entree. Giuseppe is using store-bought pasta for the carbonara. In front of Lidia Bastianich. REALLY? And Christian is taking a gamble in front of Helen with...

- BLUE: Pan Seared Turbot with Caramelized Fennel
- RED: Spaghetti Carbonara
WINNER: BLUE (Tied at 1)

Helen thought the pasta was dry. She DID like the fish, though. Convert! BAck in the kitchen, though, Christian is at it again with presentation that doesn't look like dessert.

- BLUE: Poached Pear
- RED: Apple Pie

And the winner.... BLUE TEAM! Red team had too much dough in their pie.

PRESSURE TEST #4: Eggs Benedict

Christine's probably ear to ear that she doesn't have to do this Pressure Test.

Meanwhile Giuseppe learns a hard lesson... do not DARE insult Gordon Ramsay's mamma. Or Graham's. Or Lidia Bastianich.

The theme for today's Pressure Test... Eggs Benedict. "YES!" Ben, you're excited, we get that. You have to create the poached egg/ham/English muffins and Hollandaise sauce from scratch. And you have 30 minutes to do it.

- Ben Starr: ... technically correct from an observer's point of view, but nothing from the judges.
- Giuseppe Morisco: A whole yolk is plated on his dish, having escaped from the white. And the other egg is raw.
- Suzy Singh: Beautiful
- Derrick Prince: no sauce
- Alejandra Schraeder: eggs overcooked

Ben... is safe... as is Suzy. ... and Alejandra.

Bottom two left. Leaving the MasterKitchen tonight...



GIUSEPPE. One of the biggest hearts ever to grace the kitchen is leaving tonight.

Nine are left, but any one of them can be next next time. For now, a moment for our friend... Buona fortuna mio amico.
