MasterChef August 15, 2019 Eliminated Jamie Hough (Recap)
Hey, “MasterChef” fans. Tonight, August 15, 2019, another elimination episode did indeed air with judges: Gordon Ramsay, Aarón Sanchez, and Joe Bastianich. Tonight’s episode kicked off by revealing that Nick DiGiovanni was safe from elimination after winning last night’s immunity challenge.
After that, they brought on a special guest pig named Marley. This was to reveal that the contestants would have to whip up a tasty sausage meal for this elimination challenge.
Everyone but Micah said they never made sausages before. Aaron demonstrated how to make them correctly. After that,Aaron told them they had 60 minutes to whip up their sausage dish.
Early on, Jamie already started having problems. Sarah told Aaron and Joe she was making a sausage dish that included cabbage and a lot of other things. Joe said, “It sounds authentic and good if you can execute it.”
Jamie told Gordon he was making a cajun green onion sausage with rice, red beans and other things. Joe said Subha looks really behind at around 39 minutes left to go.
Noah told Joe and Aaron he was making lamb and pork sausage with corn, carrots, onions and other things. Noah was really confident and said, “I have zero chance of going home tonight.”
Shari told Gordon she was making black beans and apple salsa to go with her sausage. At around 30 minutes to go, the judges still worried about Subha. Gordon told him to hurry up.
Bri told Gordon she was making handmade pasta with garlic flavored sausage. Gordon told her, “I want rich flavors from your sausage.”
Subha told Aaron and Joe what he was making, and they gave him some advice. At this point, Jamie told Joe and Aaron that he felt good about his sausages. However, they expressed that they were worried for him. So, he was clearly on a much different page.
Micah told Gordon he was making smoked wild boar and elk sausage. Gordon said,”Get yourself in the top 8.”
Dorian told Joe and Aaron she was making beans, tomatoes and okra, and that she was putting cayenne and garlic in her sausage.
Subha’s sausages were starting to explode at around 5 minutes to go, but he didn’t seemed to worried about it. Joe and Aaron definitely ran over to say something about it though. They were quite concerned. Subha seemed very confident when the time ran out. He said, “I’m gonna be in the top 8.”
At this point, it was time for the contestants to present their dishes. Sarah was up first. She presented a wild boar mustard, green apple and goat cheese sausage with braised red cabbage, butternut squash, and apple puree.
Gordon said, “It was a really good effort. Well done.” Joe said, “The sausage had the right consistency. It’s a good dish.” Aaron said it was good.
Next, Subha presented a Lamb and pork sausage with korma and basmati coconut rice. Aaron said, “The sausage was off putting to look at, but it’s tasty and well seasoned.” Joe said, “The rice is overcooked. The sausage is ok. It has good flavors.” Gordon said,”It’s delicious, but it’s an ugly dish to look at.” So, once again, Subha had trouble with his presentation.
Bri was up next. She presented a pork and garlic sausage with tagliatelle pasta and beurre monte sauce. Gordon said, “It’s too light. There’s more pasta than sausage, and the sausage is bland.” Aaron said, “Everything is executed properly, but it’s boring. The sausage is not interesting.”
Joe said, “The sausage and pasta are too safe.” They really criticized Bri about not making enough sausage just like last week when she didn’t add enough truffle when truffle was supposed to be one of the main parts of the dish. Bri was even trying to talk back to them a little bit. She needs to get her act together and listen.
Next, Dorian presented wild boar, fennel and apple sausage with cannellini beans. Gordon said, “It looks hearty, and it taste delicious.” Aaron said, “It was done in a refined manner.” Joe said, “The toast cheapens the dish. It tastes good. The sausage has wonderful texture. It’s a complete dish.”
Micah presented his dish next. It was a elk and wild boar sausage with carrot, celery root puree, roasted mushrooms and carrots dish.
Joe said, “I’m not a fan of the plating used. The meat is very gamey and has a nice balance.” Aaron said, “I love the decision of the pork. It works.” Gordon said, “It’s the best I’ve ever tasted. You’re incredible at just 19 years of age. Good job.”
Next,Shari presented wild boar sausage with black beans, apple salsa, and chili lime crema. Aaron said, “It’s a little tough to look at. It taste good. I don’t like how it was composed.” Gordon said, “The contrast was right. It’s delicious and done with flare.” Joe said, “It’s very interesting. I like it.”
Jamie presented a cajun sausage with fried okra, red beans and rice dish. Gordon immediately said, “It looks a mess. Everything is dry. I’m searching for texture and moisture.” Aaron said, “It looks a mess. This is not it.” Joe said, “The sausage is dry, terrible and unbalanced. It’s far off the mark.” Ouch!
Lastly, a very confident Noah presented his dish. It was a lamb and pork sausage with carrot succotash, mashed potatoes, and Guinness brown gravy dish. Gordon said, “It’s delicious. It’s hearty and earthy.” Aaron said, “It’s really amazing.” Joe said, “I love it. It’s got sophisticated flavors. It’s spot on.”
After that, the judges just immediately told Jamie he was eliminated tonight, and he pretty much knew it anyways.
Bri got real lucky that Jamie totally screwed up. So, she escaped elimination again. She really needs to get her stuff together, or she’ll be gone soon.
