Round of 8
August 1

Last week, one pig led to Alejandra's ouster. Tonight, it's all about 200 more pigs... and one souffle.

TEAM CHALLENGE #5: Block Party

Each team will be cooking sliders and sides for 200 very hungry children. The catch: you will not be using beef OR potatoes. So you're not going to be making burgers and fries.

TEAM CHRISTIAN (blue): Adrien, Derrick, Jennifer
TEAM CHRISTINE (red): Tracy, Ben, Suzy

Two hours to prep, and one to serve.

Blues are going with turkey, but Christian hasn't taken anyone's suggestions to heart. So what could be flavorful and bursting with epicness is just going to be a plain and simple turkey burger. The side: apple sticks with caramel sauce. Christian has a clear approach to the challenge, even as the rest of the team isn't really on board.

The Reds are united with a breaded chicken nugget sandwich with corn fritters. Simple enough. Also simple enough to scare the crap out of him. It's more or less junk food city. As unhealthy as this is, they're going at it together. Meanwhile, Tracy is concerned that frying chicken will not be ready in time, so we go to grilling.

The Blue caramel is crystallizing, so we switch heat sources. Rule of thumb: never stir. That won't stop Christian from serving it. The Red menu is dry all around; Joe calls it the Sahara Desert.

And now, here come the kids! The blues have an efficient serving system, while the reds are falling behind. And the kids are letting them know about it. The Red burgers are dry and slow coming. While they play catch up, the blues are starting to revolt. They don't like ketchup or mustard. Both teams have won fans, but only the majority will decide who wins.

Everyone's a winner at this party, as the kids are all going home with cooking kits courtesy of MasterChef and Kidsline.

And now... LET'S VOTE! By a score of 133-67... the winning team... THE RED TEAM!


The cooks are going to take on the scourge of any chef... a cheese soufflé. You have 90 minutes to make as many cheese soufflés as they want, but you can only present one. You can present within the 90 minutes, but the judges will look for texture, proper rise of the dough, and flavor.

The hardest part... the roux, a mixture of flour and butter which will form the core of the soufflé. The second phase... the egg white. That will make the soufflé rise. Mix the two together... and then pray to the deity of your choice.

Christian is serving a first soufflé, while Derrick is perfecting a second batch.

- Christian Collins: Cheddar & Parmesan.
- Adrien Nieto: Gruyere & Cheddar.
- Jennifer Behm: Cheddar & Parmesan
- Derrick Prince: Gruyere with Parmesan... with seconds to go.

On the back of those soufflés... It was a close one. Jennifer... did the eggs justice. She's SAFE. Derrick... made a second batch. Second attempt.. success. He's SAFE. Adrien... is SAFE.

That leaves Christian.... who is ALSO safe. NO ONE goes home tonight on the backs of four amazing soufflés, leaving us with eight to compete again tomorrow.
