Cooking Masterclass For MasterChef Season Five Top 5: It’s All About Family


This show is addicting! And it is not only the food that tickles my cravings but also the storyline depicted throughout each episode.

This week, under a great big box, the Top 5 receive a surprise in the form of their family members.

Pictured above is Top 5 Finalist, Leslie, with his wife. They look like such an endearing couple, don’t they?

At this point, I have no idea who is going to win this thing. Last year, I felt the competition leaning toward Luca Manfe – and justifiably so! He had the talent, the charisma, the personality and work ethic.

This year, the lines are blurred. Tempers have flared and major cooking mistakes have been made so it will be interesting to watch this show play out over the next few weeks.

This week, the show offers a two-hour special. How do you like that food groupies? Two hours of fun, entertainment and cooking! Oh – and drama. You can bet on the drama!

Here is what to expect – straight from Chef Gordon Ramsay’s FaceBook page:

“In tonight’s all-new episode of MasterChef, the remaining home cooks are surprised with a few VIP guests in the kitchen and each home cook will create a dish inspired by one of their loved ones. The home cook with the best dish will be safe from elimination and move on in the competition, while the remaining home cooks must go with their guts as they prepare rare protein dishes and battle for a spot in the Top Four. Later, the judges announce a final team challenge that will determine who will advance to the Top Three. “

The special two-hour MasterChef episode airs on Monday, September 8th on Fox at 8:00 PM.

Have a look at the video below and watch the contestants’ reactions when their family members are revealed under the huge Mystery Box. Fun!
