Masterchef Australia – What Is Finals Week Going To Involve?

mc finals week

Next week is finals week with Rishi, Christina, Lynton, Emma and Samira battling it out for this year’s title.

Here is what they will have to do:

This is it, finals week begins. Rishi, Christina, Samira, Emma and Lynton battle it out in a do or die contest for a place in the finale. They will be facing some of the toughest challenges yet, so who will perform best under pressure?

Sunday, August 25, 7.30pm

It’s finals week of MasterChef Australia as the top five contestants reach the pointy end of the competition. Tonight the contestants will compete in two rounds. In the mystery box challenge, they are given 10 ingredients, five chosen by the contestants and the other five by the judges. The top five have 60 minutes to cook one delicious meal. The contestant with the winning dish will be given an advantage in round two.

The winner of round one will get to choose which protein all five contestants will cook with in the invention test. The winner of round two will get a huge advantage in tomorrow’s elimination challenge.

 Monday, August 26, 7.30pm

In tonight’s elimination challenge, Rishi, Christina, Samira, Emma and Lynton have been matched with a chef who has a style and expertise to match their culinary ambitions. They have 90 minutes to cook any dish they like and for the first 15 minutes they must work with their mentor chef to plan what they will cook. The contestant with the least impressive dish will leave the competition, leaving four contestants to battle it out for the top prize.

Tuesday, August 27, 7.30pm

In what promises to be the most difficult service challenge yet, the four remaining contestants arrive at Donovan Cooke’s acclaimed restaurant, The Atlantic. Each contestant will be cooking a two-course meal chosen by Donovan for VIP Atlantic customers. The contestant who impresses the most will win an advantage in tomorrow’s elimination challenge.

Wednesday, August 28, 7.30pm

Tonight, the stakes are high as the four contestants fight for a place in the finale and the chance of winning the coveted prize.

The contestants face off in a culinary duel over three rounds. In each round, they have just 30 minutes and an open pantry to create their winning dishes. In round one, the winner of last night’s service challenge gets to pick who they will cook against, plus they get to decide the cuisine and protein both contestants will be cooking with.

The winners of round one and two will secure a place in the top three, with the losers of the first two rounds competing against each other in round three. The losing contestant in round three will leave the MasterChef Australia kitchen and the top three go into the finale on Sunday night.

Thursday, August 29, 7.30pm

Tonight, all our contestants from MasterChef Australia 2013 reunite to take part in the final MasterClass of the season. The tables are turned as they set a mystery box challenge for George and Gary. Our guest chefs are last year’s MasterChef Australia winner Andy Allen, and his mate, former contestant Ben Milbourne.

I’ve said before that there are as many germs in the human mouth as there are people on earth. I actually feel sorry for the little mofos living in Samira’s .

It’s not okay that Samira done what George done with the skewer just ‘cos he done it. It wasn’t very alagent when she done it, eiver.

The judges crawled up Samira’s arse. How they done that wifout a miner’s light is a miracle.

I fink I seen some smoke and mirrors wif Emma’s plating up , too, Littlepetal.

This is so stupid. If Lynton made the same dish Samira made, everyone would be saying he was amazing and so ceative pickling veges. If he placed that metal rod onto his lip and back into the fish, everyone would say “omg I wish I was that fish bla bla”.. At the end of the day, Samira’s dishes are better then the rest of them on that day. As much as I didn’t like her in the beginning, she actually tries to cook well.
I feel sorry for her and maybe it’s the way she’s been edited that has made everyone dislike her. At least she cooks more then a caesar salad and beef tartare. She has actually progressed from cooking mounds of ricey crap to something quite pretty.

Thanks, Socs. :) Dammit, he must have been waiting for me, and here I was too crook to go out. I live quite near South Bank.

Lily, much as I adore the beateous Lynton, if he had put the skewer back into the fish after being in his mouth, I’d be saying eww, ick! Bad Lynton!
It’s the behaviour we are criticizing in this instance, not the person. I am the first to admit that my darling Lynton is not the best cook there (Rishi is at present). I am just hoping he (L) will somehow transform himself in some way this week. 😀

Wouldn’t matter to me who put that skewer on their lips, it would still be gross, yucky and unsanitary.

There were so many innovative things that could have been done with the barramundi. When it came down to it, none of the dishes were inventive/creative. Samira grilled the fish and added some veg just like several of the others did, although she supposedly cooked it well.

How do you know where about in Melbourne there gonna be?

You know what just before Samira did that somebody else (i dont remember the person, maybe Rishi) also did the same thing using a knife. He was also checking the fish like that.

7 Littlepetal { 08.27.13 at 5:59 am }

There is nothing wrong with checking if the fish is cooked with the knife. It is touching the lips with the knife or skewer and then poking the the fish again.
