Last week’s show was tons of fun – from the judges taking on a geriatric fashion look to the terrifying release of alligators, turtles and snakes and all that fun stuff scurrying around the MasterChef Kitchen.

However, it set the tone for both segments of the show – one focusing on the Mystery Box Challenge and the other on the Elimination Test.

During the Mystery Box Challenge, #GrandpaGordon revealed that the mini-chefs would be working with ingredients that get better with age. They were presented with aged steak, ham, salmon, preserved lemon, aged vinegar and bleu cheese.

Chef Gordon Ramsay also told them that they would have an advantage in that they could Skype their favorite old person for advice via a Microsoft Surface. You see? This is why I love this show. Surprises galore!

During the Elimination Test, the kids were faced with a menu involving alligator meat. I don’t know about you but I don’t think I could ever eat this stuff. Alligator? (Shivers).

The kids cooked impressively well but, in the end, Mia and Kyler were eliminated from the competition . Good work though! They are to be congratulated for their fine achievement thus far! Bravo!!

Below, you will find the names of the remaining contestants:

MasterChef continues to tempt you with great food and entertainment on Tuesday, January 27th 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.

Finally, as I mentioned last week, the extremely gifted and resourceful Logan Guleff, who won the MasterChef Junior crown in Season 2, has been busy as a beaver on social media. If you want to stay in touch with “all things Logan” you can follow him on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and OrderUpWithLogan.

Enjoy the Sushi Trailer below. Riley’s pat on Gordon’s cheek will warm your heart.
