MasterChef August 28, 2019 Eliminated Micah Yaroch (Recap)
Hey “MasterChef” fans. Tonight, August 28, 2019, another elimination show aired with judges: Gordon Ramsay, Aarón Sanchez and Joe Bastianich, and one unlucky chef was sent packing at the end of it.
Tonight’s episode actually featured a heavily edited immunity challenge and elimination challenge combined into one hour. They, of course, started off with the immunity challenge. Family members of the final 7 contestants were on hand to watch the immunity challenge after they made a surprise visit.
During the immunity challenge, the contestants were given 60 minutes to make a family-inspired dish. At the end of it, 3 contestants were awarded immunity.
During the immunity challenge, Micah told Gordon he was making a lamb chop dish. Gordon gave him some encouraging words. Noah told Joe and Aaron he was making a sea bass dish. Dorian told Gordon she was making a collard greens, corn bread and pork chops dish.
Sarah told Joe and Aaron she was making a cajun style salmon dish. Shari told Gordon she was making a dish that featured five different proteins.
Subha told Gordon he was making a Moroccan style dish. Nick told Joe he was making a butter poached lobster dish.
After their 60 seconds were up ,it was time to taste the dishes. Nick was up first with his butter poached lobster dish. Aaron said, “I’m struggling to find clarity with this dish.” Gordon said, “I want you working with half the ingredients you have.”
Noah presented a crispy skin striped sea bass dish. Aaron said, “The flavors are there.” Joe said, ” You should’ve left the tomatoes off the plate.” Gordon said, “Stop adding things.”
Sarah presented her cajun style salmon dish. Gordon said, “The salmon is cooked beautifully.” Joe said, “Great job, Sarah.”
Subha presented a Morrocan chicken dish. Gordon said, “You need to elevate it.” Shari presented a bass dish. Gordon said, “Congratulations. Well done.”
Dorian presented a herb crusted pork chop dish. Joe said, “It’s you on a plate, but I want you to be more like me.” Gordon said, “I disagree. The pork chops are nailed beautifully. Well done.”
Micah presented his lamb chop dish. Joe said, “It’s raw.” Then he corrected himself and said it’s rare. Gordon said, “You’ve risen. It shows your confidence.”
Next, the family members left after giving hugs. Then it was revealed that Shari, Dorian and Sarah were awarded immunity for this challenge.
That meant Micah,Subha, Noah and Nick had to compete in a elimination challenge. During this elimination challenge, they had to cook the exact same dish as Gordon.
Gordon said this dish was the dish that got him a 3 Michelin star badge. The dish is a potato crusted sea bass with clams dish.
They had to cook alongside Gordon and keep up with him every step of the way. Gordon said he is the clock in this challenge. When he’s done, they’ll need to be done.
During the challenge, Gordon gave them instructions, and they had to keep up. If one of them had a misstep, they were done. Subha was the first one who looked like he may have problems.
Subha continued to show problems deeper into the challenge, especially during the flambe portion of the challenge. Subha was lifting the pan up to his face while it was on fire. Gordon shouted at him, “You have to keep the pan down. It’s on fire!”
Noah literally fell down at one point. Micah cut himself and had to get a medic to cover up the cut.
Micah ran into issues with the fish flip. After Gordon was done, they were given 60 more seconds to complete the dish. At the end, Micah said he was not happy with his dish.
Nick presented his dish first. Gordon said, “You absolutely followed the instructions. That’s a really good effort. It’s cooked beautifully. You’re 90 percent of the way there.” Joe said, “It’s a 90 plus. I actually want to eat it.”
Noah was up next. Gordon said, “Visually, I love the glistening of the veggies. The potatoes are cooked well. The fish is seasoned beautifully.” Aaron said, “You cooked the fish expertly.”
During Subha’s presentation, Gordon said, “Visually, we have beauty and the beast.” Aaron said,”This plate is a mess.” Gordon said, “The puree is way to thick. It doesn’t work with the fish.” Joe said, “There are some bright points. The fish is cooked well.” Aaron said, “The fish is cooked properly, and it’s well seasoned.”
During Micah’s presentation, Gordon said, “The fish was about two minutes away from being fully cooked. The minestrone is good.” Aaron said, “The fish is raw. However, you did the best job with the minestrone.”
After all of that, the judges immediately told Nick and Noah they were safe. That meant Micah and Subha were the bottom two.
Ultimately, they decided to eliminate Micah in the end over Subha. It appears that the undercooked meat will always get you sent home. I’m pretty sure if Micah had fully cooked the fish, he would’ve stayed over Subha.
Gordon did give Micah very encouraging words. Gordon told Micah, “I would like to set up a meeting to guide you in this business.”
