MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 40 Review: Unexpected Farewell

MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 40 is an Elimination Challenge. Except for Tommy, the rest of the contestants will be a part of the challenge and give their best to stay in the competition. Judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo announce that the challenge is divided into two rounds.

In the first rounds, two cooks will be pitted against each other. Whoever wins will be safe, and whoever doesn’t will go in the next round. MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 40 is called Cooking Duel Elimination Challenge. The cooks will get 90 minutes overall for both rounds. They have to divide these 90 minutes wisely for both rounds if they want to stay in the competition.

The cooks who will pit against each other are Kishwar and Sabina, Depinder and Maja, Justin and Scott, Brent and Minoli, Elise and Pete, Linda and Aaron. All the contestants decide that they will try to complete their cook in 45 minutes to have enough time to cook the next dish if they get into the second round.

In the first round, Kishwar, Depinder, Minoli, Elise and Linda impress the judges with their dishes. Kishwar cooks Fish curry, Depinder makes Prawn Moilee with Coriander rice and Peanut Salsa, and Minoli serves Jackfruit Curry and Crispy rice that win MasterChef Australia Season 13 judges’ hearts.

The other dishes that impress Andy, Jock and Melissa are Elise’s Handmade Orecchiette Con Broccoli, Linda’s Steamed Scallops with an Asian dressing and Justin’s Bang Bang Cauliflower. So the contestants who get into the second round of MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 40 Elimination Challenge are Brent, Sabina, Pete, Maja and Scott.

However, Brent raises his hand and tells the judges that he doesn’t want to cook anymore. The judges and the contestants are shocked to hear this. Jock Zonfrillo takes Brent aside and asks him what’s the matter. Brent tells Jock that his mental health is not okay and he can’t continue in the competition. He is unable to cook and wants to go back to his family.

Brent’s decision makes everyone in the MasterChef Australia Season 13 kitchen cry. Jock gives him his stress beads and says that the competition will be poorer without him. They also respect Brent’s decision to discontinue and applaud him for being vocal about his mental health. The episode is a real tear-jerker, but Brent has shown us all that it is okay to not be okay.

As Brent decided to walk out of the competition, there was no second round and no elimination. The episode ended on an emotional note as everyone had to say an unexpected and emotional goodbye to Brent.
