MasterChef Recap Episode 12

Episode 12


I'm still yet to see the first half of this, so I'm just going on what I caught last night. 

It was actually a really good pressure test, with a solid group of chefs going up against each other.  Felix was picked not to participate in the test because I don't know why.  Maybe just to protect her.  I think Josh and Becky and Monti are far better than Felix and, above all else, they're all mentally tougher. 

Anyway, eggs are one of the easiest things to screw up.  How many times have you asked for over easy only to get over hard?  It's annoying.  So for the test they needed to cook a soft boiled egg, a poached egg, a sunny side up egg, and a three-egg omelette.  

Monti: Solid as always.  Best of the bunch.

Bitchin' Becky: Ugh. When Graham is complimenting her on her eggs she celebrates like she won the half billion dollar lottery.  I mean, calm down, little girl.  Act like you've been there before.  If you're going to be a Master Chef then you should be able to cook eggs.  Why you're getting all emotional is the sign of a total amateur and.  You also come off as a bitch, no offense.

Josh: His eggs sucked. Plain and simple.

No contest in this one.  Monti was safe from the beginning, Becky's soft boiled egg was raw, but Josh had a ton of mistakes which made him the easy departure. 

Sorry - not many wise-cracks this time around.
