Where else will you find an alligator on a cooking reality show? Only on MasterChef Junior – the show that loves to entertain you like no other! 60 minutes of absolute fun, with escapades galore and jaw-dropping surprises after every commercial.
I have to give the Producers, Videographers and Script Writers credit – their creative ideas and formulas are boundless and elevates this show to a unique and innovative level. No copycat approach here. Just pure genius.
And the Mini Chefs are a delight this season, as they have been in Seasons One and Two. How these kiddies support one another is something to behold. It is beautiful and inspiring.
Here is what happened last week courtesy of MasterChef Junior’s Wikipedia Page
Since Andrew, Jimmy, and Ryan Kate had the best dishes from the previous challenge, they participated in this challenge, while the other contestants sat out. Andrew, Ryan Kate, and Jimmy had to whip up enough meringue for 12 lemon meringue pies. The first person to finish not only gets an advantage in the next challenge, but the winner gets to throw their pie with the most meringue either on Gordon, Graham, or Joe’s face. Andrew was competing for Gordon; Jimmy for Graham; and Ryan Kate for Joe. In the end, Jimmy wins and gets to throw his pie onto Graham’s face. But since there were still 11 pies left on Jimmy’s chef station, the contestants who sat out got to throw one of the pies on either Gordon, Graham, or Joe. Even Andrew and Ryan Kate got to throw as well.
After Jimmy won the challenge, the other contestants and himself had to compete in a team challenge. The challenge was to make sausages and prepare a sausage dish for the judges. Since Jimmy won the previous challenge, he got to choose the teams and his own teammate. The teams consisted of Jimmy and Kyler, Mia and Jenna, Ayla and Riley, Jack and Nathan, Ryan Kate and Kayla, Andrew and Cory, and Micah and Alexis. Mia and Jenna end up winning the challenge, with their Pork and Chorizo Sausage with Sauerkraut and Roasted Potatoes. The bottom two teams were Andrew/Cory and Micah/Alexis. In the end, the judges eliminated teary-eyed Alexis and Micah.
MasterChef is ready to tempt you with great food and entertainment on Tuesday, January 20th at 8:00 PM on Fox.
Also, if anyone wants to lend a pen in hand in providing a culinary analysis of this show on a weekly basis, please let me know. I am a pretty good cook but certainly not the best by any stretch of the imagination so a culinary expert would be most welcome on the MasterClassLady.Com Community.
