It is still hard to believe that all the major shows ended last week during Finale Week, but now it is time for the summer shows to take over and one of our guilty pleasures, MasterChef 2014, returns tonight on FOX! MasterChef Season 5 looks like it will be a good one, as Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and a much skinnier Graham Elliot return to find the next best home cook! The winner of MasterChef 2014 Season 5 will not only win their own cookbook deal, but they also take home the big prize of $250,000! How do I audition? Check it out with us tonight during our MasterChef 2014 Recap and see who moves on!

MasterChef 2014 Spoilers - Season 5 Premiere

For tonight’s episode, it looks like the MasterChef judges 2014 will be bringing in 30 of the best home cooks to prepare their signature dishes. Why only 30? They normally bring in a slew of contestants, but now we only have 30? Maybe that means we will have some amazing chefs and none that can’t cook that well and are a joke of an audition! We know FOX likes to air the crazy ones during the auditions, but we may bypass that this season!

Here we go…the Top 30 on MasterChef 2014 have arrived in the MasterChef Kitchen and are excited for this opportunity. They are all pretty confident, but will they get that white apron tonight? The judges have arrived and this is real life!

CHALLENGE: They will be given one hour to create their signature dish. To win an apron, they have to put themselves on a plate. Create a dish that speaks them. They have access to the pantry. The judges will be watching the Top 30 during the next hour and some of them will be pulled immediately if they don’t like what they see!

The home cooks head into the pantry and start cooking their dishes. No real issues yet, as they are all moving along and no problems. Elise wants to leave the cubicle behind and cook for a living. We see the judges going around and not liking some of the tastes early on and we see some issues start arising in the kitchen. The judges call timeout and say one of them will be leaving right now! Gavin Edmondson was forgetting the most important ingredient in all his dishes and he is not a MasterChef, so the judges send him home right now and the other home cooks continue cooking!

Another walkthrough by the judges and they seem to be doing well, but with some errors in the mix. Ten minutes remain and the judges ask them to put down their knives! Natanya Spears’ sauce is a disaster and they tell her to turn off the gas and she is headed home! The time runs out and the judges have been observing the cooks, but now go through and taste all the dishes and see if they deserve a white apron on MasterChef 2014!

CHALLENGE #2: Nine home cooks do not receive a white apron and the others all do! They are asked to step in front of the judges. They are not done yet, as they will have one more challenge! They have a fridge with signature ingredients, like potato, chicken, bacon and eggs, and will have an hour to create a winning dish. They will cook alongside Gordon Ramsay and fight for a white apron on MasterChef Season 5.

The nine home cooks get started and Chef Ramsay gets started ten minutes into it. Astrid Lavenia has food and scraps all over her floor and Joe Bastianich notices them and said he is not going to tolerate it and it is not sanitary! He only gives her a warning this time and she gets back to cooking! The time runs out and time for Joe and Graham to taste the dishes!

Chef Ramsay: Graham said that should be the standard the home cooks strive to be.

Corey, Leslie & Gordon: Graham said Gordon’s dish is tasty and you want more of it. Joe said it is a huge portion from Leslie, but delicious food. Chef Ramsay told Corey never to play with a souffle and he thought the dish was broken a long time ago. Gordon and Leslie get a white apron and Corey is eliminated.

Astrid, Amy & Michael: Chef Ramsay said the overall flavor is there for Astrid. Graham said he likes the shrimp, but fish is dry for Amy. Joe has Michael try the dish and it is too salty! Astrid gets a white apron and the other home cooks are headed home!

Elise, Chandis & Francis: Graham said the pasta is great and the shrimp is delicious for Francis, but not sure about the sauce. Joe said the shrimp is cooked fine, but she served raw potatoes! Chef Ramsay said it does taste good, but it is a pot pie. It may look a mess, but there is something there. Francis and Elise get a white apron and Chandis is sent home!

In the end, we have 22 home cooks that have made it through tonight’s challenges and one of them will be the winner of MasterChef Season 5!
