Round of 5
August 9

Last night, the six found out what it was like to run a Gordon Ramsay kitchen (if only for one night). The Reds were able to handle the kitchen of Patina at the Walt Disney Music Hall in LA, sending the blues to the most daunting Pressure Test. Tracy was given her walking papers on the back of dealing with salmon, but this isn't going to be the end for her. We're down to five... and by the end of Round 7, we'll be down to the final three.

But first, we begin with...


In the box today... the toughest Mystery Box to date - ground meat, celery, carrots, corn, bell peppers, mushrooms, rice, and potatoes. And a bottle of Worcestershire sauce. That is basically a shepherd's pie waiting to happen.

One incredible dish, 60 minutes. The judges will only taste the three best-looking.

- Jennifer Behm: Meatloaf with Roasted Corn & Homemade Ketchup. This is her fourth final table.
- Adrien Nieto: Meatball Trio. This is his fifth final table, the most of any of the players.
- Ben Starr: Shepherd's Pie with Red Wine Reduction. This is his second final table.

Winner gets a distinct advantage going into the Invention Test. That's right. I used the Australian term. The winner... finally won a Mystery Box. BEN STARR! He will control the test, in which he must recreate a signature dish from a world-renowned chef with 12 Michelin stars... one who is called the "Cook King" by the Koreans, truth fact... one who puts the "F" back in food...

ELIMINATION TEST #7: Gordon Ramsay for 90 Minutes

... who were you expecting, Hiroyuki Sakai?

The choices...

- Pan Roasted Filet Halibut with Crab
- Roasted Duck Breast with Honey Glazed Onions
- Roasted Loin of Venison with Red Cabbage

The dish to be recreated.... The VENISON TENDERLOIN. The second advantage: Ben is allowed three questions on the dish. The answers.

1) Red cabbage is the garnish.
2) Cream is used in the puree.
3) The venison was warmed in butter, then seared.

The rest of the recipe... Sorry, you're going to have to go to Fox.com for that.

You will have 90 minutes to become Gordon Ramsay.... And no, you just don't get there by swearing a lot.

- Suzy Singh: Good flavor, slight unevenness on the venison.
- Christian Collins: Puree is split... and a bit piquant.
- Ben Starr: admittedly, he squandered his advantage.
- Jennifer Behm: MILES from the original dish.
- Adrien Nieto: Bastardized.

Needless to say, the bottom three are Adrien, Christian, Jennifer... AND Ben. Yikes.

The winner of this challenge... SUZY. She makes the final four as the winner of this Invention Test.

Jennifer and Christian... are SAFE.

Leaving the MasterKitchen forever...

.... BEN STARR. Heartbreak all around. He's pulling for Adrien to win the whole thing.

One title. Just FOUR cooks. The search for the next MasterChef continues.
