Auditions 2
June 5

The search for America's next MasterChef continues, as the top 100 - including the show's first blind contestant - strive to succeed where countless others have failed.

Day 2 begins with Felix (24, food runner from Hollywood, CA), who is going to prove herself on the plate rather than with a sob story. She makes a Crispy Risotto with Steak Tartare and Quail Egg. The tartare's underseasoned. The risotto's a bit burned. She doesn't deliver on her promise, but it's all on Graham now. She... gets an apron.

Next up, it's Luca (30, restaurant manager originally from Italy, now living in Astoria), who learned how to cook from his mother, who secretly flew in from Italy to support her son. He's making Fegato alla Veneziana, calf liver Venetian style, with parmesan polenta. Joe says yes, even if the liver's a little over. That sets it back for Graham. Gordon... sends him home. But he will be back next year.

Meanwhile, we get more aprons going out of the door.

Hiza (24, artist originally from Brazil, now living in ) has a Chocolate Custard with Raspberry Center in a Cashew Crust. Visually stunning. And it tastes great. Now to get the apron.

Nine aprons out today. Next is a posse of cowboys - Bear, El Bronco, and Al. Only El Bronco scores. What about Mike (40, contractor from Powder Springs, GA), who's doing this for his sister who was killed in a wreck six months ago. His plan... ride up on a horse. He's got a Pan Seared Venison with Creamed Potato and Haricots Verts. Meanwhile, the horse has decided to go number one. The judges give him three and an apron to go with it.

Next up, married to the kitchen and to each other, here are Anna & AJ (Boston). First up is AJ with a New England Dirty Lobster. Anna follows with White Clam Pizza. Who's the best cook? Right now, AJ. Anna? Will get a shot at besting him!

Now, the judges go on the road, each armed with their own food truck to look for America's best to bring back for judgment. We have chocolate cardamom tarts, squirrel pie, and porcupine balls. So far, no good, but what will Bubba (40, musician from Blackshear, GA) bring? He's bringing a Venison Wrapped in Bacon with Pureed Rutabaga and Greens. The venison is overcooked and underseasoned. The judges split, 2-1 for... YES!

Craig (43, call center assistant from Santa Monica, CA) wants an apron like a fat kid wants cake. He makes an Eggplant Rollatini with Truffle Ricotta & Linguini. Everything came together on that dish. It's all on Graham... and he says no.

Next up, it's time for the gun show. And everyone fires blanks. How about Frank (28, stock broker from Long Island) with a Guanciale Ravioli with Brown Butter Sauce & Romanesco? He didn't even bother to taste it. That's a no out of principle from Gordon. The other two... say yes.

Finally, we have Joel (37, soldier originally from Jamaica, now living in Miramar, FL) getting his marching order. He has a Rice & Peas with Chicken & Vegetables in a Sweet Pepper Scotch Bonnet Sauce. He's turned the dish "posh". He wants to own a restaurant named after his son who drowned on Joel's way from military school. Joe says no. Graham says yes. Gordon... says yes!

Next week, we finish the auditions and then head to boot camp to come up with your finalists.
