Masterchef Australia – Emily Eliminated Quickly And Without Usual Fanfare
None of the contestants can really complain about the elimination challenges as they get three chances to survive in the game. Emily Loo was eliminated last night from Masterchef Australia and she deserved to be. In the three rounds of the elimination challenge her dishes went from average to disaster.
The challenge was to grab ten ingredients from a table and plate up a dish in 30 minutes. She did Sweet and Sour Chicken but she overdosed it with the cloying sauce. The second round which was cook a dish with six ingredients she made a Dry Fried Crab with Honey and Apricot Jam Dressing. Which looked cloyingly sweet. And lastly her brain finally exploded in the last challenge where they had three ingredients and ten minutes. It looked like she was going to make Fried Banana Fritters. But then she fried the banana by itself and then dipped it in condensed milk and rolled it in panko crumbs.
The judges did not even bother calling Sean and Steven back in and she was eliminated on the spot.
It must of been bad as Sean’s dish of Liver and Bacon with Raisins looked bad including the fact he braised some of it and pan fried the other part and then mixed it all together.
Steven finally razzled out a good looking dish, maybe he should only cook with a limited amount of ingredients. He hacked out a piece of John Dory with some Samphire and Peanuts.
The three in the bottom deserved to be there and were probably the weakest cooks on the red team. Sean who looked like he did have some skills is probably not long in the game as this is the second week he has struggled through an elimination challenge. And Steven, well he has no hope of making top ten.
There was some good cooking in the early round but Tracy needs to pull herself together if she has a panic attack over not getting the duck. The first round of the elimination challenge was they could use ten ingredients to cook a dish in 30 minutes. In the end her Beef with Mushrooms was said to be delicious and she was the first to be made safe. As was Ben (he has been quiet for a few episodes) with his Lamb and Cauliflower Couscous. Sam also was safe after the first round along with Emelia.
Emelia was still blaming Georgia for the Pannacotta debacle in the prior episode, she needs to get over it. Her dish that made her safe was Baked Coconut and Lime Custard with Toasted Meringue and Crushed Oreos. And because it looked like Pro Hart on a plate George loved it.
Jamie who is faltering on the show managed to get through on round two if he does not improve his chances of making top ten are shaky.
Props to Emily she has a cooking apprenticeship in Brisbane so seems serious in pursuing her cooking career.
