Master Chef season 5, episode 3: Top 20 Compete airs tonight on Fox.
It’s the ultimate culinary war when the remaining 20 home cooks compete in the biggest field challenge in Master Chef history: feeding an army of 500 servicemen and women on a desert Army base. In their first team challenge, the contestants will split into two teams — the red team and the blue team — to create a hearty meal including one protein and two side dishes. Tempers flare as both teams struggle with consistency, and every dish counts as the troops will vote for their favorite dish and determine the winning team. Later, the losing team will face an intense pressure test featuring the all-American classic, blueberry pie. Find out whose dessert will prove to be a victory and who will be sent home.
Famed chef Gordon Ramsay is back. Along with returning judges Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot, the trio will put the contestants through a series of exciting elimination rounds and turn one amateur cook into a culinary master. The series will feature people from all walks of life who want to follow their dream of becoming a culinary legend. As a surprise for the amateur cooks, the first-ever Master Chef winner, Whitney Miller, will return to show off her skills and let the contestants in on the secret to winning the title and walking away with the $250,000 grand prize.
Master Chef season 5, episode 3 airs June 9 at 8 p.m. EDT on Fox. Preview below:
