Tay mentioned that he’s making a crab ravioli dish. Anne told Joe & Nancy about her dish. They gave her some advice.
Abe told Gordon and Aaron he’s making a ravioli dish. They gave him some advice. Aaron told him, “Don’t be afraid to get the excess water off.”
Alejandro told Joe & Nancy about his dish. Joe told Alejandro, “Your fettuccine is super thin , and you have a very low margin of error with that. Good luck.”
The judges talked among each other ,and they said that Miles dish seemed very complicated.
When the competition was over, Miles explained how he had to remake his pesto because the first serving was extremely bitter. Michael seemed somewhat confident in his dish. He said, “We’ll see if it’s good enough.”
The judges walked around and took a look at the dishes. Gordon told Miles, “You burnt your pine nuts twice. This isn’t Masterchef junior.”
Next, they revealed that Anne, Autumn, Kelsey and Lexy had the top 4 dishes of this round. Anne presented her pappardelle dish. She added pancetta, asparagus, peas and cream sauce to it. Gordon said, “It’s cooked beautifully.” Nancy said, “I respect the simplicity of it.” Aaron said, “It kept my palate engaged.” Joe said, “It’s done well in an excessive way.”
Autumn presented a lemon ricotta dish. She added beet tortellini, white wine, leek sauce, beets and pea tendrils to it. Joe said, “The structure of the tortellini is perfect.” Aaron said, “It taste as good as it looks.” Nancy said, “It’s perfect.” Gordon said, “I would be happy to serve it in my restaurant. It’s that good.”
Kelsey presented a tagliatelle dish. She added lobster, peas and tarragon cream sauce to it. Joe said, “The lobster steals the show.” Aaron said, “You cooked it great.” Nancy said, “It’s great. It’s seasoned correctly.” Gordon said, “Well done. It seems more like a dish that would be served when we got down to the top 5 contestants instead of the top 10 .”
Lexy presented her lasagna dish. She added Italian sausage and ricotta to it. Gordon said, “It looks delicious.” Nancy said, “It’s everything I want in lasagna.” Gordon said, “Well done.” Aaron said, “I liked the vegetables.” Joe said, “Great job.”

The bottom 3 dishes belonged to: Miles, Alejandro and Michael. Miles presented his pesto fettuccine dish. He added beef and pork ragu to it. Gordon said, “It looks bizarre. You overshot it. It screamed out of control.” Nancy said, “It’s a sign of a young chef trying to do too much.” Aaron said, “This is really disappointing.” Joe said, “This isn’t a dish. It’s a series of your mistakes plated for us to eat.”
Alejandro presented a tagliatelle pomodoro dish. He added grilled octopus to it. Gordon said, “You overcomplicated this dish.” Aaron said, “It’s just not right.” Joe said, “It taste like something heated in a microwave.” Nancy said, “If it was an octopus competition, you would’ve won it. It’s unfortunate.”
Michael presented a gnocchi dish. He added poached lobster, crispy pancetta, peas and butter sauce to it. Joe said, “There was a major technical error with the butter.” Gordon said, “It’s insufficiently cooked.” Nancy said, “It’s very one note in its flavor.” Aaron said, “The lobster is cooked well.” Joe said, “There were technical problems, but it’s not entirely bad.”
After all of that, the judges announced that Miles had the worst dish of this round, and he’s unfortunately eliminated. In his closing words, Miles said, “It’s been an amazing experience. I’m sorry I couldn’t serve you something better. This, for sure, isn’t the last you’ll see of me on my culinary journey.”
