It’s post exams time and I’m catching up with my life. Otherwise known as TV.
So we’re back in the kitchen with the micro chefs. There’s a recap of last week, when Molly and Tommy got axed. I’m sure they’ll have some company soon. And a preview of the ep, cooking beef Wellington! The preview suggests at least one person messes up badly.
So the Masterchef symbol appears and the micros swarm into the kitchen. They’re excited about getting into the top 10, the usual Masterchef hyperbole. – slightly more forgivable as they’re kids though.
But now something new – the top three micros from last weeks elimination round(Gavin, Alexander and Kaylen) are getting a new contest to see who gets the advantage in the next challenge. That’s a complex way of saying the budget for this show isn’t as big as regular Masterchef.
Anyway they’re going to have to whip cream. Alexander is tipped as a hot favorite as he is ‘the pastry king and probably whips cream in his sleep’. I’m not touching that one with a barge pole.
Hail to the Pastry King! He’ll never live that down
They’re whipping cream to get it to a stiff peak. Pretty much just a race of whisking power, but there is a knack to it. It seems like this is a challenge designed to introduce as much mess as possible. The micros cheer them on from the sidelines, especially Sarah. I think at one point she even yells ‘Whip it, whip like a man’. I might have misheard that.
Short but slightly scary
Roens prediction about Alexander seems true, he does know what he’s doing and calls that his is whipped. The micros all have to stop now, and are going to hold the bowls over the judges heads, for comedy effect. Alexander is up first, and TG is safe – he has stiff peaks. Gavin’s falls out on Bastage.
It tastes better than it looks
Gordy gets an even worse treatment, and can’t help letting a swear word slip out.
