The remaining six home cooks compete in a high-pressure team challenge at Hatfield’s, one of the most talked about restaurants in Hollywood. The contestants will split into two teams and replicate the award-winning restaurant’s signature dishes.

Later, the contestants facing elimination will have to prepare steak three different ways. Find out whose dishes will prove to be a job well done and who will be cut from the competition.
The judges challenge the remaining seven amateur cooks to use their imagination in the next mystery box challenge, which features shrimp. The hopefuls will have a very limited pantry and little time to create a standout dish that will impress the judges. The winner of the mystery box challenge will determine which savory ingredient the remaining hopefuls must incorporate into a dessert dish in the elimination round. Find out whose savory treat will please the judges and who will be on the chopping block.
The Top Six finalists are in for a big surprise when the eight previously eliminated contestants return to the MasterChef kitchen to compete for a chance to earn a spot back in the competition. The eager hopefuls will each select one ingredient to make up a mystery box, and they will be required to use all of the items to create a stunning dish that will prove that they deserve a second chance. After the contestants are whittled down, only two amateur cooks will compete head to head for a chance to win back their aprons and continue on the journey to become the next MasterChef.
