MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 29 spiced up everything in the kitchen. It was an immunity challenge and the one for which contestants weren’t ready. In the Mystery Box Challenge, Dan, Elise, Kishwar, Pete and Linda impressed the judges with their cook. Hence, they will get another chance to give their best to save themselves from the upcoming elimination.
MasterChef Australia judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo announced that it would be a Chili Immunity Challenge. The contestants have to prepare a dish using a chilli from the eight hottest chillis in the world. Melissa and Jock are pretty excited, and Andy is worried as his spice tolerance isn’t that great. Everyone starts laughing, seeing how Andy is already sweating.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 29 also had a twist. The contestants won’t get a chance to select their choice of chillis. Instead, they have to pick a card from a bag, and whichever number is shown on it, they will get the chilli placed in that order. Dan gets orange bhut jolokia, Pete picks up hurt berry, Elise is excited as she gets lemon blast. Linda and Kishwar get the god stopper and chocolate trinidad scorpion chilli, respectively. Before starting the cook, the contestants taste their respective chilli to understand the spice level.
To win the immunity, these four MasterChef Australia Season 13 contestants have to cook a hot dish in which the chilli shines but doesn’t overpower. They get 75 minutes to complete their cook. Pete, Elise, Linda and Kishwar decide to cook a savoury dish, whereas Dan decides to cook a sweet dish. Guess what he chose to make as his sweet dish – ICE CREAM! It’s high time viewers get a dollar every time a contestant chooses to make weird flavoured ice cream in the competition. This season will mainly be remembered for so many ice cream dishes.
Anyway, Pete and Elise use their hurt berry and lemon blast to make pasta dishes. Pete cooks Scampi Rundown, and Elise makes Prawn Pappardelle with Lemon Blast Chilli Oil. Judges can taste the chillis in both the dishes and loved their cook. Kishwar’s signature crab curry dish with chocolate trinidad scorpion chilli leaves the judges sweating their heads off. Dan’s Chilli choc ice cream also impresses the judges. But the MasterChef dish that leaves Andy, Melissa and Jock’s mouth on fire belonged to Linda.
Linda cooked Kohlrabi salad with eye fillet and God stopper dressing. She added the god stopper chilli in every element of her dish. Andy says that her dish is very spicy but also delicious. Among the five best dishes served in the MasterChef Australia’s Chili Immunity Challenge this week, Linda’s was the best. Hence, she wins the immunity and is safe from the elimination challenge. The episode not only turned the heat up but made me laugh, thanks to Andy’s reactions.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 29: What’s next?
Except for Linda, the rest of the MasterChef contestants will have to make an excellent dish to avoid elimination. But one of them will have to say goodbye.
