We are back with another Mystery Box Challenge on MasterChef 2015 tonight and it looks like we are going to have bacon and TV dinners in the works! The judges on MasterChef Season 6 will be testing the home cooks with making TV dinners, which seems like an odd challenge and I am very intrigued to see this one plays out. It looks like Graham Elliot is going to give them a lesson on how to do it, but check out a sneak peek of the Week 6 challenges below in our MasterChef 2015 spoilers!
For tonight’s new episode, the Top 16 on Master Chef Season 6 will be back for another Mystery Box Challenge and Elimination Test! Here is the official synopsis from FOX:
“In the next challenge, it’s proven that Breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day when the home cooks are each tasked to create an elevated breakfast dish in 45 minutes. Not only will the winner have immunity in the next mystery box challenge, but they will also receive two additional advantages. Later, in the mystery box challenge, contestants must create TV dinners. Find out who will go home and who will bring it home in the all-new ‘Bring Home the Bacon’ episode of MASTERCHEF.”
The pressure will be on for these Top 16 home cooks and the judges are not giving them any slack! Check out some photos from the challenges here:

My desire to highlight all the ingredients was really stumped by the mystery box at first. I had extremely pungent ingredients such as balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, blue cheese, mustard, and Kosher dill pickles. Bringing these flavors out to the same plate and have them not fight each other is no easy task. Drunk Quebecois food and a refreshing Thai salad to balance the weight of the blue cheese gravy made so much sense! I went all out and got intoxicated to test the recipes!
Larb with an international profile
Instead of the traditional fermented fish and lime elements, I used soy sauce, mustard, pickles, and balsamic vinegar. Rice, beef, nuts and the overall flavor profile remain true to the traditional dish that is both Laotian and Northern Thai. Bright and deep in umami, satisfying and flavorful!
Poutine with blue cheese
Poutine is a specialty of Quebec, typically served as fries with cheese curds and brown gravy. I used blue cheese curds, soy sauce, and beef broth to make mine. It was not surprisingly phenomenal when sober and divine when intoxicated.
Go to my blog for the detailed instructions to execute this great plate — bon appetit, have fun and stay tuned for the next challenge!
Meet the awesome Amanda Saab. A few weeks ago, an acquaintance of mine was gushing about how excited he was that there was a Lebanese candidate on this season’s Masterchef, which airs on FOX every Wednesday in the US. On that episode, Amanda Saab had done a fusion cuisine dish, based on our very own Lebanese pride and joy: it was kefta with sumac aioli and jalapeño-dusted potatoes. Her favorite…
Lifetime is aiming for the younger set and hoping to build on the success of other kids competition shows with Project Runway Junior, a new series showcasing designers ages 14-17. It’s slated to premiere this fall. The network also renewed Project Runway All Stars for debut in early 2016. The 14th season of flagship series Project Runway premieres August 6.
Tim Gunn will co-host Project Runway Junior with supermodel Hannah Davis. Judges include fashion designer Christian Siriano — 2007 winner of Project Runway — and Aya Kanai, executive fashion editor at Cosmopolitan and Seventeen. Production is set to begin this summer in New York. Competition shows for kids have been very successful, such as Gordon Ramsay’s cooking competition series MasterChef Junior on Fox and La Voz Kids on Telemundo.
Project Runway Junior is produced by The Weinstein Company, Sara Rea Productions and Full Picture. Bob and Harvey Weinstein are exec producing with Patrick Reardon, Barbara Schneeweiss, Sara Rea, Jane Cha, Desiree Gruber, Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue, David Hillman and Gunn.

Harvey and Bob Weinstein exec produce with Patrick Reardon, Barbara Schneeweiss, Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Rob Bagshaw, Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and David Hillman.
Over on Fox, MasterChef (4.6 mil/1.4) and Bullseye (2.8 mil/0.9) each dipped a tenth in the demo, while ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap (3.1 mil/0.9) ticked up a tenth. NBC’s America’s Got Talent recap episode (5.9 mil/1.3) was broadcast’s No. 2-watched program.
Greg Gayne / FOX MasterChef does this typical reality competition show thing, which is to focus on only a few specific contestants an episode. In a way, this makes sense, because it’s hard to spend equal time on everyone when there are a lot of people to worry about. It’s understandable, but it can also be frustrating when you don’t really see anything from the people you like the most (in my…
