Last week, families were flown in for the show to encourage the Top 7 Masterchef contestants. These Top 7 have been away for months. Crazy. Lots of multi- location segments I guess so it has been a long but exciting ordeal.

Unfortunately, nobody showed up for Krissi. Her son, who was in the middle of academic testing, couldn’t travel to the show but recorded a message. Although it was a sweet message, I did feel so sad for Krissi.

For the Mystery Box Challenge, The Top 7 had 60 minutes to cook a dinner inspired by their family members. Nice. The cooks had free rein with this challenge so the stress level was diminished compared to other episodes.

The winner would receive a major advantage in the next round – as yet to be announced!

The Top 3 in this Challenge Test were Natasha, Jessie and Luca, with the winner being Luca with his Risotto dish. That was my favorite as well.

And now the mega-challenge! Everyone, but Luca, had to cook sushi. Oh dear. And since Luca won the Mystery Box Challenge, his goal was to pair the remaining six into teams. Interesting!

Luca wanted Natasha out of the competition so he made life a little more difficult for her. He paired the opinionated Krissi with the equally strong-willedNatasha – I love it! Then he paired James with Jordan and Eddie with Jessie.

In addition, this was also a tag team challenge – one member of the team would cook alone and, when the judges yelled “switch”, the other team member had to continue cooking the same recipe. Now this was fun to watch. There was more yelling and screaming in this segment than a horror movie. Ha!

Surprisingly, Natasha and Krissi were a very strong as a team. Krissi said that Natasha saved her in this challenge. Hmm. Nice humble pie from Krissi. Very nice to see and hear.

The other two teams were pretty much disastrous and so Krissi and Natasha were the clear winners. James and Jordan were second.

In the end, Eddie, Jessie’s teammate, was eliminated because he contributed the least. Too bad. I loved him.

This week, the Top 6 – apparently, from the video below – do not have to cook. Why? Because they are bringing back some contestants who were previously eliminated.

Apparently, these eliminated contestants get a chance to cook their way back into the competition. Ha! Can’t wait to see the sparks fly! How about you?

Catch the exciting episode Wednesday, August 7th at 9:00 PM on FOX.
