MasterChef Australia, Season 4, Episode 69 Recap - Final Four: Signature Dishes
It’s the second last day of MasterChef 2012! It’s a bit different this year. Instead of two in the finale, there’ll be three.
The deserted house echoes with the footsteps of the top four contestants. Each of them express what winning would mean.
MasterChef Australia, Season 4, Episode 68 Recap - Final Five: High Steaks
We open with Bandy having eggs together whilst gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes.
Gary welcomes the final five to the kitchen saying, “There’s a bit of electricity in the air.”. Bandy glance at each other, then realise he’s talking about how close the contestants are to the finish line.
Today’s challenge is a two-parter, all about beef. In Round 1, they will need to make the perfect steak sauce. They get twenty minutes.
MasterChef Australia, Season 4, Episode 67 Recap - Finals Week: It’s Bennelong Day
In the house, Bandy are discussing being the last two men standing. Taco Boy says that at one point he’ll need to kick Andy’s arse. That one’s too easy, I won’t even dignify it with a homoerotic retort.
As a small reward, the final six find chef whites with their names embroided onto them. It’s the little things…
It’s a gorgeous day as our cooks arrive at the Sydney Opera House. The morning light shimmers across Sydney Harbour and casts its rays against the giant struts of the Harbour Bridge. If there ever was a programme that showcased Sydney tourism to the world, this is it, given it’s syndicated in 36 countries.
MasterChef Australia, Season 4, Episode 65 - Elimination: Family Favourites
The gastronomes arrive at the MasterChef Kitchen. Cupcake Barbie tells us that it’s an elimination and one person is going home. Thanks for explaining the complex inner workings of eliminations to us.
The judges ask her if the competition has changed her. She says she’s “still just as stubborn”. That’s putting it nicely.
Preston says they’ve met some amazing, inspiring chefs on their journey. Now they want to bring in the people that’ve inspired them the most. It’s family day! Everyone’s family has come to visit and there ain’t a dry eye in the house. Preston wipes a tear from George’s eye. He claims he wasn’t crying but they did look a little watery.
MasterChef Australia, Season 4, Episode 64 - Team Challenge: Creme de la Careme
Team challenges always kill me to write. There’s always just so much going on that it’s hard to keep up. This episode calls on the most elaborate pastry skills of the season. I’ll try to keep up as best I can.
Kylie and Cupcake Barbie are packing their bags for this overnight challenge. Both of them have no idea what’s in store ahead. Kylie also packs a load of cookbooks. They seriously need to allow something like iPads or Kindles to hold their recipe books. It’s ridiculous how much weight they’d save.
MasterChef Australia, Season 4, Episode 63 - Elimination: Chinese Connection
Let me preface by stating I cannot stand Kylie Kwong. I think she’s a big fake. She did a show where she explored her “roots” in China and says she’s all about embracing her Chinese heritage. The only thing is, she doesn’t appear to have made any effort to learn Chinese whatsoever. Even Kevin Rudd speaks Mandarin! It was embarrassing to watch her on that show walking through China and not even using basic Chinese phrases. I’m also not a fan of her stupid wizard sleeve jackets.
Okay, end of rant.
MasterChef Australia, Season 4, Episode 62 - Pressure Test: Snap Out Of It
Will she or won’t she? That’s the question for tonight’s Pressure Test. Hipster Alice must decide whether she’ll relinquish her Immunity Pin. It’s the last week she can. It would mean Beau would take her place. Alice received several letters from her students saying how proud of her they are. She feels she needs to teach her kids another lesson. This time about integrity, so she won’t play it. She does a double chest pound peace symbol out to her homie, Beau. Respect.
