I'm thinking he will. Cutter has just gotten lucky the last couple of challenges and I don't see him going all the way to the end. I was sorry to see Ahran go, as I thought she might be at the end also but those prawns got her.

Leslie, Elizabeth and Courtney should be in the final 3. But it all depends on who the judges would like to represent the show.

Elizabeth is the safe choice but she lacks characters.

Courtney and Leslie both rub people the wrong way. But let's say if they winner will be on the next Masterchef cruise, which one Courtney or Leslie, will draw more people to the cruise? That'll be the winner.

Leslie was one sly fox to pair up with Elizabeth tonight. But that's what it takes to win a competition.

I really wish I could have seen Cutter try to make that souffle.

LOL.

The previews seemed to indicate the take-turns 'teams' next week.
Aren't there 7 people left?

I think next week the first part will be the mystery box challenge and one winner goes upstairs leaving 6 for the tag team.

I think I saw, Leslie, Jamie, Elizabeth, Christian, Cutter and Big Willie in the tag team challenge from the preview. Does it mean Courtney is going to win the mystery box and name the teams?

Maybe. I am still surprised that Cutter is still in the game though. That boy has been on a lucky streak.

Yeah Cutter even with his frown upon "fork technique" for the raviolis.. Screamed "YES" when I saw Cutter screw up the poached egg, but sad when he won the next one..

They almost send Jaimee home, I think Daniel forgot he put parmesan and added more salt to it.

IDK Jaimee looked delicious I wanted a bite..

I couldn't stop looking at those Courtney legs up there in the balcony, the judges had a better view though.. mmm

I don't know why Courtney keeps reminding people that she danced at a strip club before. I admire her honesty but find it little strange.

To each his own.


But, seriously, does Jaimee have a speech impediment or hearing issue? Was it mentioned before? I didn't watch the first episodes.

From her FB page:

Hi friends! Before tonight's episode I want to clear the air. I've had a lot of people ask about my voice issue and awkward movements. It just so happens that I am a healthy young lady who was recently diagnosed with dystonia, a neurological disorder. It breaks in to two types. I have spasmodic dysphonia which causes my voice to break, sound weak, and even be painful to speak. The other one is still to be determined, but is the culprit to my constant muscle contractions, achy joints, and clumsiness! GOOD NEWS though! Treatment is underway, and it looks promising

I hope the treatments help. She's an extremely talented cook and one of my favorites this season.

Yeah "clumsieness" could sent her home, what if she drops a plate while running to place it to the judges? BTW this has never happened right? someone losing the dish on the floor? specially people wearing high heels and flip-flops

Cutter survived another week to create more drama with Leslie next week. Someone please tell me this show is not scripted.

And from the preview of the verbal spat and disfunctionality between Cutter and Leslie next week, this team is likely the winning team. It means Cutter will likely survive another week and either Christian, Courtney or Jamie will go next week. Hell will freeze over if the judges let Courtney go so it'll be either be Jamie or Christian that'll go next week.

My son and I were saying last night "Finally! Cutter is going to go!". Sadly no such luck . At this rate I will be surprised if he's NOT in the final .

When they announced the 2 worst teams, I was pretty sure they will take Cutter out... no such luck, but Willie was as bad, maybe not as bad as Cutter.

Really disappointed on Elizabeth's performance, Christian's also..

Man "Legs" keeps winning and winning, those loose dresses are on purpose up there in the balcony, but the camera didn't show much.

This show has nothing to do about cooking. Also looks like some of the poster's are on to it, and all anyone talks about is personalities.

These are just my opinions.

Thanks for posting that. I always wondered what caused her voice to sound that way. I'm truly impressed that she hasn't let it stand in the way of her career.

Yeah, although I must admit, and I only say this in the warmest way and with nothing but respect and admiration, the strangest hour of radio I've listened to in my life was when Fred Rogers a.k.a. Mr. Rogers appeared as a guest on her show. Hard to fully describe the effect of their combined vocalization styles and pacing. Kind of hallucinogenic after awhile.

Since Big Willy's gone now, I hope he'll lose the "Big" part of his moniker. Carrying his weight at only 25 will cause health issues down the road.

I hope so too. Having BTDT myself I know the weight struggle well and all of the ill-effects that go with it.

Will any of the lingering few (none of which really impress me this year) get the offer of
an internship/whatnot from Gordon or Graham this year?

The preview gave away the result of tonight's restaurant takeover. The team that's appearing in limbo almost always wins in the end. That means, yes, Cutter survived another week.

Yup, Jaimee was offered a job in any of Gordon's NY restaurants...

Man they just can't get rid of Cutter!, next week it seems nobody is immune from elimination (it's about time), I think the mystery box winner will have an advantage, perhaps choosing which organ he/she cooks

I hated to see Jaimee go. Unfortunately, the way this show is setup using team challenges, lesser cooks (Cutter) are allowed to hang around longer than better ones. I bet Cutter wouldn't be top 5 on Hell's Kitchen, yet here he is in the top 5 of Masterchef. SMH

Cutter has been very lucky lately and I am surprised he's still there. Please let next week be his downfall!

Isn't Hell's Kicthen professionals? With the contestants being in the food industry. While Master Chef has amateur cooks? So you can't really compare Cutter to being in Hell's Kitchen. Which I see starts up again next week with a two hour premiere.
