Round of 8 Redux
August 2

Last week, a few kids, a few burgers, and one big party led four cooks to the nightmare of having to prepare... one... perfect... soufflé. We didn't see one perfect soufflé, though... We saw FOUR, and on the back of that, no one gets cut from the roster.

But it's a new day in the MasterKitchen, and time to impress is running dangerously short.


Inside the big brown square as Graham calls it... meat, meat, and MORE meat! It's Surf & Turf Day! We have jumbo prawns, Alaskan king crab, crawfish, buffalo rib eye, porterhouse steak, and short ribs. You have full access to the pantry, unlike previous MBs.

Forty-five minutes... ONE dish. That's right, 15 less minutes than previous. This is going to be a test.

Adrien has won two Boxes, as has Jennifer. Both are in fear of each other.

After the time lapses, we get to the top three...

- Adrien Nieto: Short Ribs & Crab Salad with Black Garlic (this is Adrien's fourth final table)
- Suzy Singh: Prawn Bisque & Bison with Pan Gravy (this is Suzy's second final table... the first was #1)
- Jennifer Behm: Risotto with Short Ribs & Crabs (this is Jennifer's third final table)

Christian tastes the risotto after being called out on his bland potatoes... "Very good. I've had better." And Gordon gives him what for right then and there for shutting down.

Truth is... He has had better. But some things you just don't say.

Winner of this Mystery Box... JENNIFER! I believe you know where the pantry is...  

ELIMINATION TEST #6: Childhood Favorites

Joe, Graham, and Gordon will present their three favorite childhood dishes. Jennifer gets to pick which one everyone will cook. Joe grew up on pizza in NYC. Graham loved mac'n'cheese. So did Gordon, but he's giving it to the fat guy so he can present something distinctly Scottish... Tomato soup with grilled cheese.

The theme is... Gordon's tomato soup with grilled cheese. BUT you're going to have 45 minutes to create a grown-and-sexy version. Make sure you deliver the goods, because someone WILL go home today.

And to help you along, framed embarrassment! Speaking of embarrassment, Suzy cuts herself and has to start from scratch with 15 minutes to go.

Now to serve...

- Suzy Singh: Grilled Cheese with Red Pepper & Tomato Soup
- Adrien Nieto: Creamy Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese with Foie Gras & Honey... which was over the top
- Christian Collins: Lobster & Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese with Foie Gras & Prosciutto
- Ben Starr: Roasted Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese with Bacon & Onion. One of his worst performances in MasterChef.
- Tracy Kontos: Tomato Soup with Pancetta & Fontina Grilled Cheese
- Jennifer Behm: Roasted Tomato Soup with Lobster Grilled Cheese
- Derrick Prince: Gorgonzola Tomato Soup with Tomato & Bacon Grilled Cheese. Missed the boat.
- Christine Corley: Heirloom Tomato Group with Goat & Provolone Grilled Cheese. The combination doesn't work.

The best two tomato/grilled cheeses... belong to TRACY and SUZY!

The worst three... Christine, Derrick, and Ben.

Ben... is SAFE.

Leaving MasterChef today...


... and DERRICK. But Joe does invite him to New York for an espresso and a chat.

And then there were six to compete in the team challenge next time. Carlos & Olivia's kid signing off.
