MasterChef US Season 3 Episode 10

Uploaded by OneAndTwoPotato on 19.08.2012

Last night on Masterchef...
Here they come. Here they come.
Let's do this.
The food truck challenge
put Stacey front and center. Red Team all the way.
As her plan to get rid of Monti was on course.
Or is David gonna freak the out?
Such a child.
This day keeps getting better.
But when Monti passed the pressure test
with flying colors...
Those were incredible. Thank you so much.
Anna was the one eliminated.
Anna, please put your apron on your station.
Tonight, a mystery box with a mystery guest...
Go get him, Graham. That's bad ass.
As the contestants cook
alongside a Michelin star chef.
He's one of the most talented chefs on the planet.
And when the home cooks face a new challenge...
Disaster strikes.
Look at the mess.
You see this?
And after one elimination,
there is a shocking twist.
They're gonna cut two people?
Sync and corrected by dr.jackson for
Good morning.
It's down to 11,
and we are the best home cooks of America.
Welcome. Welcome. Welcome. Welcome.
Sometimes I look at these mystery boxes and wonder,
"what would a true Masterchef do with those ingredients?"
My gosh.
Well, today we're going to find out.
No way, dude. That's awesome.
We have invited a Michelin starred chef,
a true visionary in the world of food,
to cook alongside of you all.
Go get him, Graham.
Please welcome all the way from Chicago,
a legend of modern cuisine,
Masterchef Graham Elliot.
That a boy.
Do we know what we're in for with this guy?
He's one of the most talented chefs on the planet.
Don't worry.
You guys aren't competing against me.
That would be totally unfair.
We just wanted to give you an amazing opportunity
to see what a true professional chef could do in one hour
without any advantage of any preparation.
And, no, for the record, I don't know what's in the boxes.
And, remember, the person with the best dish
will get a huge advantage in the next challenge.
That's bad ass, man.
Chef Elliot, please take your station.
Are you ready to see what's under those amazing boxes?
Yes. Yes, chef.
One, two...
I couldn't believe my eyes.
I see what looks like a roadkill.
You have the most amazing rabbit.
A rabbit. Cape gooseberries,
purple brussels sprouts,
maitake mushrooms, ramps.
Forbidden rice,
chorizo, ginger.
And a heavy whipping cream.
In addition, you have access
to the staple box for other ingredients.
I'm definitely going to be in the top three,
and I'm feeling very confident now,
just knowing that I have a rabbit in front of me
and I could do it three, four, five ways.
You've got 60 minutes to create
a stunning dish.
And your time starts...
Going into this mystery box challenge,
the person to beat is still Becky,
because she's been in the top three
of all the mystery box challenges.
And if I can kick Becky's ass,
then that means I'm that much better.
Do you think a lot of them have used rabbit before?
Probably not.
Butchering is very difficult.
It's very small, very delicate.
Overcook it, dry.
A lot of jeopardy here. What do I do?
I would make a really nice rabbit pot pie.
I would make an incredible frittata
and roast the whole rabbit
around the frittata, like... Yeah.
A porchetta stuffed with eggs.
The whole idea of putting Graham in the kitchen with us,
cooking side by side, is really to show us
how a real chef thinks.
It's intimidating.
Graham can possibly put something up
that just makes us look stupid.
Right, Graham.
Yes, chef. How are you feeling?
Amazing. I can't wait to see
what you are going to be cooking over the next 55 minutes
in comparison to what they're doing.
Nothing crazy. Literally. I mean, it's a mystery box.
It's being able to, you know, utilize these ingredients
to the best that they...
Just kidding.
Just trying to scare you guys.
So what's the difference
between the way you run your station
and some of these amateur cooks?
Like, what do you do differently?
Why are you more efficient?
I think the biggest thing
is to constantly clean, wipe down.
I like to have my knife right here exactly where I can use it
all the time, for being able to just grab and go.
Good luck. Thank you.
Thank you.
I'm a little intimidated. I've never butchered a rabbit.
I don't know what the best way is to cook it.
So I'm kind of trying two different ways,
hoping that one of them is the right way.
Josh? Chef.
What are you doing? I'm doing a rabbit paella.
Rabbit paella. And where is the rice?
The rice is right here,
and I don't even know what forbidden rice is.
God. How am I going to make this black rice work?
It's going to turn everything else black,
the carrots, the chorizo, the ramps.
Just ruin the colors that I planned for my dish.
That's why I wanted to just talk to you about the rice first.
Good luck.
Right now, I'm getting the stock reduced.
I'm going to make a sauce with this.
I'm going to either stuff the leg,
or I'm just going to sear off the loins,
so I'm going to do two different things
and see which one tastes the best.
40 minutes gone, 20 minutes to go.
All right, Mike, how are you doing?
Good, chef.
My grandmother used to cook rabbit stew all the time,
so I've got that going right now.
Good. Backup plan
is I'm going to pan-sear a leg,
finish it off, serve it with rice.
You sit in the middle.
When am I going to see you break through?
Today, chef.
Good luck. Thank you, chef.
Nice and tasty.
It's so nice to see Graham.
Obviously using the carrots.
So he's doing a carrot puree.
Beautiful. It looks like he's utilizing
every cut of that rabbit.
I mean, that's really what a true chef
looks like in the kitchen.
58 minutes gone. 2 minutes to go, guys.
Finish those dishes.
Let's go. This is it, guys.
Come on. Put it on the plate.
Man, I do not know how to plate at all.
Clarity and vision.
Come on.
What is he doing?
Graham, he has nothing on the plate yet.
Last 60 seconds.
Graham, if this dish is not completed,
you are leaving the Masterchef kitchen.
Graham, where are you going?
Graham? What's he doing?
Last 60 seconds.
He has nothing on the plate yet.
Graham, where are you going?
He's going?
Graham, do not give up. Come on.
With the clock ticking down, our home cooks
and Masterchef Graham Elliot are racing
to complete their dishes before time runs out.
He got something out of the fridge.
What is that? He's done a desert.
Oh, my God. 90 seconds, nothing.
Then all of a sudden he comes out with a bloody desert,
and now look at it.
Ten, nine, eight,
seven, six, five,
four, three, two,
one, and stop.
Hands in the air, Graham Elliot.
Well done.
They look incredible.
It smells fantastic.
Chef Graham, please come up with your dishes.
It looks beautiful.
Thank you, chef.
I mean, it looks like a dish
that could be planted
in any three-Michelin-star restaurant
anywhere in the world. It looks stunning.
I appreciate that.
I would like all of you to come down
and have a look at this, please.
You've got to.
My goodness.
Did a carrot puree
and a salad of different shaved, marinated pickled carrots,
and utilized all the parts of the rabbit,
so I've got the loin, the rack, the kidney,
the bacon or the belly flap, and some of the liver.
I also did a fennel panna cotta with a little bit
of candied fennel branch,
fennel fronds, and cape gooseberries.
I'm looking at Graham's dish,
and it's just beautiful.
All the colors are popping.
It's really like art on a plate.
Well done, chef.
Great. Back to your stations.
Once the contestants have tasted Graham's dish,
our Masterchef judges now take one final look
at the home cooks dishes before deciding
on tonight's top three.
Please, please, please, please.
The winner of the mystery box will receive
a major advantage in the next round.
The first dish we'll be tasting had great plating,
a really nice execution,
had that wow factor, and it looks amazing.
That dish belongs to...
Frank. Well done.
Really well done.
I look at Frankie's dish,
and it looks rustic as hell.
There's, like, a bunch of lines on a plate
and a bunch of the same colors.
There's no diversity.
Talk us through it, please.
Okay, so, you have the tenderloins
that I crusted with caraway seeds,
lemon zest, some ginger, and I just hand-roasted them.
The leg was deboned, pounded out,
and then I stuffed it with the top of the ramps,
a little bit of chorizo.
Pounding out the leg
and stuffing them, now that's a bold move.
It looks great, it tastes great, and everything works.
Delicious. Really good job.
Well done.
Now, you look at a sauce, you can just tell by looking at it
that it's got the right balance, it's not over-reduced,
it's not extracted, it doesn't have a skin on it.
It smelled great.
It's really, really good. Thanks, Joe.
It might take you to the top.
I think the coolest thing on this plate
is the fact that you did that leg.
Cool. Good job.
Thanks, man. It's really good.
Really good. Well done.
Thank you.
The second home cook who made it into the top three,
they used the rabbit legs, they used the forbidden rice,
and the cook on the rabbit looks really perfect.
It really impressed us.
That person is...
Cowboy Mike.
Bring it up. You're kidding me.
Holy crap.
Yee-haw! Top three, baby.
There's a first time for everything, chef.
What do you have here?
I did the rice in a little bit of rabbit stock.
I started with the idea that I was going to do a stew.
I knew, about 20, 30 minutes into it,
that wasn't going to work,
so I incorporated a little bit of chorizo,
a little bit of ramp into rice, sauteed that for a minute,
and then cooked it off with the rabbit.
What we love about this dish is the caramelization.
And when I cut it open, it should be
like this kind of very perfect white,
but there should still be able to see
the moisture in the rabbit leg.
Right. Think you got it?
I hope so.
That's worth the price of admission right there.
Really good. Thank you, sir.
One of your best dishes. Congratulations.
Very good. Thank you.
Moist? Yeah, very good.
It's glistening to us and shining.
Cowboy Mike. It feels good to be here, chef.
I hope so.
You absolutely cooked the leg beautifully,
which is the hardest cut to do.
You really nailed it.
Thank you, chef. Good job.
Thank you. Great job, Mike.
Thank you.
We're going to be tasting one more dish.
This dish was put together with finesse.
It was oozing professionalism.
Well done.
My God. Becky?
I am so sick of hearing Becky's name.
It's so annoying,
and I'm actually sick and tired of, like, Becky.
Welcome back to the top three.
Thank you chef.
You've never won a mystery box yet.
After I butchered it, I took the saddle
and the two tenderloins and the upper arms,
and I put those in the pressure cooker with a little bit
of chicken stock and some of the rendered chorizo.
Nice sear on the rabbit.
Thank you. Cooked to perfection.
Glistening. Moist.
But the glaze was the one that got us,
because it was almost like it'd been cooking
for three or four hours.
I mean, it's delicious. I mean, it really is.
My God. Thank you.
It's restaurant quality without a shadow of doubt.
Thank you, chef. My God.
When you cut into this, I mean, you can see how juicy this is.
Yeah. Does that make you happy?
Very happy. Me too.
This might be your lucky rabbit's foot.
I hope so.
How about the flavor of those carrots and ramps?
I couldn't believe the leg.
You guys are amateurs, and today you cooked like pros.
It's the best feeling in the world to have these guys
who make dishes like Graham did,
tell you this is impressive, this is an amazing dish.
The winner has a huge advantage
in the next stage of this competition.
I'm a bit of an underdog.
I think I kind of woke
everybody up a little bit,
and they realized that cowboy can cook.
The dish that stood out...
To all three of us...
This is my third time being in the top three.
Hopefully, they can see how much I want this
and how much this means to me.
Well done.
Congratulations goes to...
The winner has a huge advantage
in the next stage of this competition.
In today's mystery box challenge,
the top three dishes have already been tasted...
Frank's seared loin and stuffed rabbit leg,
Mike's pan-seared rabbit legs with rice,
and Becky's braised rabbit leg with chorizo.
Congratulations goes to...
Good job, Becky.
Yes, finally.
I win.
Third time lucky.
Third time's the charm.
Well done. Thank you.
Thank you all so much.
Great finesse. The balance.
We were struggling to fault anything.
Are you ready...
I am so ready.
To take on board your huge advantage?
Yes. Let's go.
Congratulations. Okay.
Well done. Thank you.
Great job. Let's go. Thank you so much.
I really wanted to win, you know what I mean? My God.
She's jumping up and down and screamin' and hollerin'
and pumpin' her fist and all that stuff,
and, you know, it was ridiculous.
My God. I can't believe it.
It looks amazing, dude.
I know.
It's really good.
I'm really shocked you weren't out there for real.
Unfound territory for you.
As the winner of the mystery box challenge,
Becky is now in control of the elimination test.
The theme of the challenge
has been selected by the judges.
At the end of this elimination test,
at least one home cook will be leaving the Masterchef kitchen.
Today's challenge is all about tools of the trade.
The first piece of equipment is Italian,
and it's rock hard.
It is the pizza stone.
So, if you don't have a pizza oven
that goes to 900 degrees,
you really should have a pizza stone.
Because it retains heat and moisture,
it can deliver you a crispy-crust pizza
in your home kitchen.
The second piece of equipment
comes from China.
It's used for frying, poaching,
searing, smoking, and so much more.
A wok.
Awesome. Okay.
And the last piece of kitchen equipment
is used to make some of the world's most favorite foods...
French fries, onion rings, calamari, tempura.
It is...
An incredible fryer.
Now, Becky, you have no immunity today.
You will be participating in this challenge.
But here comes the good news.
First of all, you get to choose which piece of equipment
you'd like to use, and then you decide
on which piece of equipment your opponents will use.
This advantage is not something that comes easily,
so I need to choose something that I'm going
to be familiar with, that I'm going to be able
to create a great dish with.
What's the piece of equipment
that you think you can excel with?
I'm going to choose for myself...
The deep fryer.
The deep fryer.
For your fellow competitors, what are you giving them?
I'm choosing this device, because it's going to create
maybe some more issues for some of the chefs
that they haven't dealt with before,
and for that, I'm choosing...
Back to your station.
Here we are.
A Masterchef must be able to master
every piece of equipment there is.
We showed Becky three kitchen tools.
Since she does not have immunity today,
her advantage was choosing which piece of equipment
she'll be working with and which one the rest of you will use.
So today I picked for myself the deep fat fryer.
And here's what Becky picked for the rest of you.
A pizza stone.
What am I going to do with a pizza stone in under an hour?
I'm pretty sure Becky wants me out of the competition.
Becky wants everybody out of the competition.
You have 60 minutes to make one amazing dish
utilizing the pizza stone,
and, for at least one of you,
it'll be the last dish you ever cook
in the Masterchef kitchen.
Your time starts now.
We have 60 minutes to create something
using the pizza stone. It does not have to be pizza.
You can just cook on it.
I still can't find the stupid olives.
Since I can't remember my recipe for a damn pizza dough,
I'm scrapping the pizza. I'm cooking lobster.
Interesting what happened.
I think that Becky made a very aggressive
and strategic move in choosing the pizza stone for everybody.
Certainly she's going to set herself apart from the rest.
Yeah. The first thing now
is getting that dough on.
Activating the yeast and getting that dough working.
I would make a stunning pizza.
I would roll that dough so thin.
I'd put it through the machine almost like a pasta...
So it literally crisps and bubbles
and keep that nice crisp edge to the pizza.
All right, Becky. Hello, chef.
What are you doing?
I'm doing a tempura-style shrimp
with a Thai coconut broth.
Were down to 11, yeah? My God.
Who's leaving the Masterchef kitchen next?
I think cowboy Mike. Cowboy Mike?
Yeah. Why?
I just don't know if he has that passion
to be a Masterchef.
I know that he loves cooking,
and I know he has a passion for food,
but being a Masterchef is so much more than that.
Good luck. Thank you, chef.
Cowboy Mike, what's going on? How are you, chef?
How are you guys? You're going to make lobster?
Roasted lobster tails with a...
You're going to roast a lobster tail on this?
I'm gonna start it in a little bit of water
and then throw it in there with a little garlic and butter
and then make a puree for it.
So there's 11 of you here.
Who's going home today?
David Martinez
is going home today. David Martinez.
Great, thanks, Mike. Thank you, guys.
Something's burning in the oven, guys.
What is that?
It's a... I made a smoker.
You made a smoker? Looks like you made a mess.
So no pizza? No pizza.
That's where my mind was.
I just said I don't want to make a pizza.
Taste that.
Monti, where's your dough?
My dough is in the oven already.
Really? What are you making?
I'm making a soda bread.
I make it for my son all the time.
A soda bread?
I'm gonna make a pureed carrot soup
with a touch of ginger and lemon zest.
Soup and soda bread?
Yeah. Good luck.
All right. Thank you. Thank you.
15 minutes to go.
Tanya. Yes, chef.
We are all over the place.
What are you doing?
I have this roasted vegetable dish,
seared off my lamb, finished it in the oven.
The lamb?
It's still raw in the middle.
Yes, chef. And then you're gonna fry it in a pan?
Anything you've got in terms of flavor from that stone...
Yes, chef. Is gone.
55 minutes gone. 5 minutes to go.
Wait till you see David Martinez's dish.
Yeah. He's making a sauce
out of 150 juniper berries in a broth.
Cowboy Mike, I think, like Martinez, is all over the place.
I think he's in a complete panic.
I think that he didn't know how to make a pizza dough.
No. Very nervous for him.
Monti threw the carrots on there.
And she's now roasting the carrots
and blending them into a carrot soup.
I mean, completely all over the place.
I'm definitely...
What was that?
What the hell was that?
This thing.
Did you put water in the oven?
What is in there?
(Joe) Uh-oh, what happened?
You burned the bread?
Monti just burned her bread.
If she can salvage it, she'll be good,
but she looks like she's in trouble.
Five minutes to go.
I'm not going home today!
(Joe) Uh-oh, what happened?
You burned the bread?
Go slow, go slow, go slow, go slow.
Holy freak out, Batman!
This is my main dish.
I can't just present them a bowl of soup.
For God's sake.
90 seconds to go.
Tali, where we at?
I've got my pizza in the oven.
Hopefully, it can, like, start cooking fast enough.
Okay. Why don't you try to clean your station?
I know, I know.
All right, come on! Clean up, clean up.
Everyone wants to make the top ten.
The pressure is definitely on.
Hurry up, guys!
Ten, nine, eight,
seven, six, five,
four, three, two, one,
and stop!
Hands in the air. Well done!
That was a fascinating 60 minutes.
Right, let's start.
Mike, please come forward.
I'm not proud of my dish, but I hope that I've done enough
with the pizza stone that I can kinda just skimp by on this one.
I would have loved to have given you a pizza.
If you told me to guess what piece of equipment
you were given to cook with, I think we'd be here
for hours before I ever got to the idea of a pizza stone.
I wish that I could remember my dough ratios
for pizza because I-I would have done a pizza.
The lobster, when it flakes like that,
I mean, it's like you found a way to make it
like, dehydrated.
I mean, you know someone's leaving today, right?
Yup, I do. I just blanked out.
All right.
Sorry, chef.
How can a stone beat you?
No excuse. It just did, chef.
This is your worst performance.
You didn't remember a dough recipe of any kind?
I just drew a blank.
Yeast, flour, salt, water.
It's pretty simple, right?
You drew a blank.
Hope there's not a blank space
at your cooking station tomorrow.
I hope not too.
Hell, yeah, I'm nervous.
Good job, Becky!
You know, but what can I do?
You know, my only hope at this point
is that somebody else screwed up worse than I did.
Next up, the girl who had a huge advantage
coming into this challenge.
Becky, lets go.
Hello, judges.
The only person in the competition
who had a deep fryer. Right, what is that?
I did a tempura-style fried shrimp topped with yuca chips
and then a curry and shrimp stock-infused broth.
It's delicious. The shrimp you've nailed.
It's fresh, and it's got that kind of sort of lightness to it,
which is not generally associated to a fryer.
Good job. Thank you, guys. Thank you.
All right. Next up, please, Christine.
I decided to go with an Indian-inspired flatbread.
I topped it with some chicken that I rubbed
with curry powder and topped it with a fried egg.
The idea that if it grows together, it goes together,
all of these flavors are found in the same parts of the world.
I think it's a very well conceived and constructed dish.
Thank you.
Next is Monti.
I know that Monti is a single mother
and she does raise her kid and all this stuff, but this isn't,
like, the best budget cooking mom show, you know?
She's not a Masterchef.
How do you make soup on a pizza stone?
I roasted carrots on a pizza stone and I pureed them.
I made soda bread on the pizza stone as well.
I thought about what I would cook
for my son and I on a rainy day.
And I would cook soda bread with a soup.
I love the soda bread.
Thank you, sir.
It has a depth of flavor.
Every ingredient makes sense,
and I would like to, on a rainy day, eat that whole bowl.
Dude, thank you.
The soup's delicious, but...
The bread is phenomenal. Great job.
Thank you.
I mean, are you really doing this because you know it,
or is it a fluke?
It's not... I'm not a fluke, sir.
Well done. Thank you, sir.
Really well done.
Thank you, guys.
It feels amazing obviously.
And I really wish my son Danger was here
so I could try to make him eat some carrot soup.
All right. Next up, please, David.
Let's go, David.
What did you make?
I roasted the potatoes in the pizza stone,
I did the bacon on the pizza stone,
and I did the lobster on the pizza stone as well.
This looks...
Really bad.
It almost looks like some kind of soup,
and then you got, like, this big old long piece of bacon
that look like it just fell in it
from someone's breakfast plate.
Yeah, it's a mess.
Come on, Dave.
I'm supposed to eat this, really?
You know, watching you cook this
was just a letdown.
We're gonna go from 11 down to 10,
and this is what you bring?
This is the most important dish of your life, guys.
You see this?
This is [Bleep].
Just got real.
This is not good.
Holy [Bleep], I am going home today.
We're gonna go from 11 down to 10,
and this is what you bring?
This is the most important dish of your life, guys.
You see this?
This is [Bleep].
Dave Martinez is, like, the biggest joke.
As a matter of fact, I mean, why is he even here?
David, you've had some pretty monumental dishes,
and you just fell a thousand foot with nothing underneath it.
Great shame.
You know, sometimes planes crash, and that's what happens.
Stay there for a minute.
Just... just step back.
Look at the mess.
I decided to put it all in one space.
It's not in one space.
It's from there all the way down
and all over the place.
Look at the cupboards. I don't...
Let me tell you one more thing. Okay.
If you were in any of our kitchens...
Yes, chef.
You'd have been fired six months ago.
Yes, chef.
That is a disaster!
Tali, bring it up.
All right.
What is that?
It's a flatbread with duck
and three cheeses of provolone and mozzarella.
I made a sauce out of creme fraiche,
chives, onion powder, garlic powder, and...
And it's served on a bed of raw flour, right?
That was not my intention.
My intention was to roll... Roll out my flat bread
and get it into the oven.
I mean, here's the thing.
You work in a mess, you produce a mess.
I'm struggling to identify what the hell you' doing.
I really am.
And the last dish, Tanya, please.
Hi, chef. Hi. What is it?
I wanted to do something mediterranean,
so I did an olive cumin seed flatbread,
roasted lamb lollipops, a roasted vegetable combination,
and a roasted garlic yogurt.
The dough is still doughy and very raw.
You can't be happy with that.
I'm lost for words.
That's dreadful.
The eggplant is raw.
Bitter? And the lamb is dry.
If anything, she shoved it in a pan.
These are raw, whole garlic cloves in here?
Yeah, it's raw.
When you go out to eat, they give you
whole cloves of raw garlic to eat?
No, chef, they don't.
Are you kidding?
We're here to judge a contest.
We're not here to eat raw flour or raw garlic.
When you give us crap like that to eat,
it gets to be almost kind of personally offensive.
Do you understand that? Yes, chef.
Not only am I advising you to step up your cooking game,
most of all, I advise you to have a little respect.
With all the dishes tasted, the judges must choose
tonight's three worst dishes.
From these, at least one home cook
will leave the Masterchef kitchen.
Man, that was a disaster.
I mean, honestly.
Tanya, Tali, Mike. Who would have thought
that that would have been so hard?
Pizza stone.
I got my ass kicked on this one.
I mean, straight up from the beginning.
Well, I didn't try to give no excuses.
I just screwed up,
and I probably deserve to go home for it.
God, they were harsh on you, man.
I wish I hadn't have done this dish.
So the bread was way undercooked?
What'd you roll it with?
I didn't.
Tanya, Tanya.
But yours didn't go in the trash.
Damn near close.
I just feel bad for Tali, man.
They tore him up.
Me too.
Man, Becky, picked a good one to screw us over on.
That was not our best performance in a challenge.
But there were some highlights.
One great dish that stood out for all the right reasons,
that dish belongs to...
Well done, Monti.
Thank you.
If you think I'm a fluke, I am gonna laugh my way
all the way to the Masterchef crown.
Now to the worst dishes of the night.
The first dish...
Please step forward...
I don't want to go home.
I want to make the top 10.
The next disastrous dish...
David, please step forward.
I think I will be walking out of the doors here
in T-minus ten seconds.
And the third terrible dish...
Tali's had a lot of chances,
and I feel like his nine lives are pretty much up.
Please God, pick Tali.
Please step forward...
Cowboy Mike.
I'm not gonna give up hope at this point, but I know that,
you know, there's a good chance that I'm possibly going home.
Tanya, David, and Mike, you know those dishes were bad.
Yes, chef. Yes, chef.
Mike, step forward, please.
You entered this competition on a horse,
but your food made the real impact on us.
Blew us away.
And we were expecting you to continue that climb
and outsmart your competition, but that pizza stone was abused.
It's time for you...
To head back...
Mike, step forward, please.
A 40-year-old father from Georgia that has a big heart,
but that pizza stone was abused.
It's time for you...
To head back...
To Georgia.
Your time is done in Masterchef.
Thank you. Thank you.
You keep that food dream burning high.
Thank you very much for the opportunity.
Well done. Thank you.
You did your sister proud too.
All right? Thank you very much.
I know it's a big deal.
All right? You did great.
Thank you. Thank you.
Before you leave,
who's gonna win Masterchef?
Without a doubt, chef, this woman cooks better
with no sight than all we do with vision,
so I'm saying Christine. Christine.
Thanks, Mike.
I can't wait to buy your book, babe.
To make it this far is a huge accomplishment for me.
I lost my sister in September,
and I was doing this in her name.
I'm very proud, I know she's proud,
and I know my family at home is... is extremely proud,
and they're gonna welcome me with open arms.
I know they'll be glad to see me.
Okay, one, two, three,
four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten.
The top ten best amateur cooks in the country.
Come on!
How did I make it through this?
How does that feel? Really great.
Well, that ten is about to become the top nine.
Double elimination?
What... what?
Tanya, you are the youngest in the competition,
and sometimes you cook like you're one of the most mature,
but that pizza stone threw you way off.
Yes, chef.
David... Passionate,
but it was just puzzling watching you cook.
It was just a mess!
The person leaving Masterchef...
And heading back home...
Dave Martinez has to go.
He has to.
Your time is done in Masterchef.
Trust me, you may not have your hands
on the title, but what you have got is a future in food.
Thank you so much.
You're bubbly, you're exciting,
you're very young.
Continue on that journey, 'cause you connect with food.
Thank you. Well done, my darling.
Thank you so much.
It's been great having you.
My God, I cannot believe I made it.
This has been a crazy journey.
Before Masterchef, I was so scared to acknowledge
what I wanted in life, and coming here just shows me that,
you take big risks, you get big rewards,
and the fact that I made it this far, until the top 10,
it's massive.
I'm so proud of myself.
Next time on Masterchef...
My God!
An ominous sea urchin
makes its Masterchef debut.
My God, I hope that's not your brain.
And the catch of the day
sends a tidal wave through the kitchen.
I'm definitely swimming with sharks right now.
Everyone can go home as far as I'm concerned.
As another home cook is sunk.
[Bleep] Hell.
It's Masterchef. Not masturbate.
I hope that fish doesn't take you down today.
