EXCLUSIVE: The secret deal Masterchef tried to hide

  EXCLUSIVE: The secret deal Masterchef tried to hide MasterChef has been plagued with rumours of infighting and short tempers this season, and it seems things are about to explode between its cooks! The MasterChef kitchen has been plagued with rumours of infighting, searing tensions and short tempers this season, and in the show's final weeks on air, it seems things are about to explode between its most competitive cooks! Woman's Day hears the talented final contestants have been pitted against each other in a bid for lucrative TV offers, cookbook deals and future media jobs, and it's causing more than a little friction behind the scenes.

Reynold Poernomo won his second Immunity Challenge and the first spot in the top five on tonight's MasterChef.

The top three contestants from Monday's Rubik's Cube Mystery Box, Laura Sharrad, Poh Ling Yeow and Reynold, were met with a sea of cloches when they arrived in the kitchen. They had to choose two, each containing just one ingredient. Featuring a different ingredient in each, the contestants had to cook one sweet and one savoury dish in 90 minutes.

While they could choose to swap out one of their ingredients and pick a new cloche, but would have to use whatever they found beneath.

  Is that really fair? MasterChef star Reynold Poernomo's secret advantage is revealed as it emerges his brother is a JUDGE on the show in Indonesia A 24-year-old man has been arrested after a shooting at a routine traffic stop in Auckland, New Zealand.

The best way to regain confidence is to remind yourself of your capabilities, address the obstacles that keep you from feeling confident , and work Try eating a healthy dinner a bit later in the evening. If your stomach is truly growling before bed, try a protein-based snack like a hard-boiled egg or a slice

Serving up a grit-filled chunk of under-cooked meat that he cut against the grain of the slab, sealed his fate.

Reynold walked into the kitchen feeling good, and excited to be presented with something he had never seen on MasterChef before. The first person to pick his cloches, he uncovered first madeira and then fennel, but, as a "betting man", chose to give up his fennel and take a chance on getting the citrus fruit he wanted instead. While he thought he could smell citrus in the air, what actually lay under the cloche he picked were dates.

Reynold made Mushrooms With Date Puree and Brown Butter Foam and a Chocolate Brownie With Madeira Gelato and a Madeira Veil. While he'd intended to serve quail with his mushroom and date dish, he overcooked it, and decided not to serve it up, and to instead rely on the other flavours on the dish. He reasoned that the quail, if anything, might subtract from the dates as the "hero" of the dish and that at this stage in the competition overcooked quail wouldn't cut it. It was disappointing news for Jock Zonfrillo during judging, but it obviously paid off in the end. He gushed that his madeira gelato was the best he'd made so far in the competition, but at the end almost forgot his veil, remembering in the very last moments of the cook.

Is this the end of Reynold Poernomo? MasterChef fans threaten to boycott the show after new promo suggests 'dessert king' will go home on Sunday after messing up a sponge cake

  Is this the end of Reynold Poernomo? MasterChef fans threaten to boycott the show after new promo suggests 'dessert king' will go home on Sunday after messing up a sponge cake Things are set to heat up in the MasterChef kitchen on Sunday and it's not looking good for Reynold Poernomo.Channel 10 released a new promo for this week's elimination episode to social media on Wednesday, which sent viewers into a frenzy.

'I can't see him anywhere! MasterChef appears to suffer another editing fail as viewers are quick to notice Reynold Poernomo MISSING from final scenes.

Well, the lessons from tonight ’ s cook are in. Dani starts crying when talking about being a mum of two kids - she says you end up cooking the same things all the time, and the MasterChef kitchen is an intimidating jump back in for her. Hayden is up first with his single raviolo.

Laura's technique for picking her cloches was to spin through them and pick randomly, then feel for a "good vibe", and she ended up with red miso and vanilla — two solid picks. She stuck with them, making a Barbecued Pork dish with her red miso, and Sfogliatella With Vanilla Custard, which was unfortunately overpowered by molasses flavours despite the amount of vanilla elements she incorporated into the dessert, even though Jock warned her about this possibility.

Poh was very disappointed by her two choices, bergamot and ruby grapefruit, and chose to pick again, ending up with olives instead of the bergamot when she spun to choose a different cloche at the last second. She made a Quail and Olive Ragout Stuffed Gnocchi and Chocolate Hazelnut Pastry with Fresh Grapefruit, but quickly found that time was getting away from her before she'd even started on her dessert — she'd chosen to put too much of her time into the complex ragout instead of dicing and incorporating the grapefruit into her sweet.

Tessa Was the Latest Person to Leave MasterChef Thanks to Unbalanced But Creative Flavours

  Tessa Was the Latest Person to Leave MasterChef Thanks to Unbalanced But Creative Flavours Tessa Boersma was eliminated from MasterChef in a two-round first classic then creative cook, just shy of the top six. In round one, the contestants had varying amounts of time to recreate a classic dish perfectly, like Tessa Boersma making fish and chips with tartare sauce, Callum Hann a chocolate souffle and Poh Ling Yeow and Reece Hignell creme caramel in just an hour. Reynold Poernomo, making Bombe Alaska in 90 minutes, along with Emelia Jackson, was panicked about his lack of classical training, and how his style of creative cooking didn't suit the challenge. Talking to the judges, he realised that his dish didn't include a vital component — a sponge.

Laura won her first immunity securing her place in the Top 6 in MasterChef Australia Back to Win . As Reece had already secured his place on the gantry last week, he was safe from the monstrous challenge that had, in fact, kicked him out the last time around - the dreaded one-inch cube challenge.

He was awarded a second immunity pin after outscoring QT's Andy Harmer. In what is a MasterChef Australia first, Sashi Cheliah has become the first ever in the Aussie series’ After Sashi outscored QT Melbourne’s Andy Harmer in tonight ’ s immunity challenge, the South Australian prison officer gained

The winner was between Reynold and Laura for immunity, after Poh was taken out of the running for her "clumsy" and overly large gnocchi, and "rushed" pastry.

Andy commented that Reynold's savoury dish was beautiful but did feel like it was missing quail, adding, "At his stage we wanted a little bit more from you." Meanwhile his dessert was "singing of madeira", truly featuring the ingredient — so much so that Melissa Leong even danced while eating it. Meanwhile Laura's pork was delicious, but her Sfogliatella wasn't vanilla-y enough.

Having almost held his breath as Andy Allen talked through his and Laura's dishes, Reynold breathed out and doubled over with elation when he was declared the winner for best meeting the brief. Reynold said that he was "speechless" about his win, but pleased to see that his "rough patch" was over: "To finally cook something today that I was really happy with, I feel so much better now."

Congratulations Reynold!

POPSUGAR Australia: You called yourself a betting man at the start of the episode, and, considering you won immunity, your bet did pay off. Do you regret your gamble at all?

It Looked a Lot Like Reynold Had a Hickey on MasterChef This Week & the Internet Lost It

  It Looked a Lot Like Reynold Had a Hickey on MasterChef This Week & the Internet Lost It People are convinced that Reynold Poernomo has been sporting a hickey for the last two episodes of MasterChef. On Monday's Mystery Box challenge, Reynold was inspired by the green on a Rubik's Cube to make a version of the Moss dessert from his KOI Dessert Bar, combining elements like matcha gelato, dulce cremeux and lime curd. The dessert landed him in last night's Immunity Challenge. There, he was tasked with featuring dates in one dish, and madeira in another, one savoury, one sweet.

His numbers slowly improved after that and he went on to win a second term as president. He has had trouble delivering in areas where he' s needed to navigate the corridors of Congress, despite controlling both chambers until Democrats regained the House at the start of January.

Reynold: Oh, of course I don't regret my gamble — it was honestly one of the most challenging two ingredients to highlight! Both such sweet ingredients!

But I was able to stretch my creativity and made an epically delicious mushroom dish and one of the best-tasting desserts that I've ever done.

PS: What would you have done if you needed to use fennel? What was your dream citrus dish?

Reynold: I guess I'd quarter the fennel, braise it in butter, give it a nice char on the outside, topped with smoked pine nuts, mixed with some crisped jamon and whipped mascarpone, light dressing with a champagne vinaigrette and fennel top oil — so a vegetarian dish.

For the citrus, I would have loved to use bergamot. Make a sorbet out of the juice, a jam made with the whole bergamot, and hollow out a whole bergamot and fill everything inside the bergamot shell.

PS: What was your reasoning behind leaving your overcooked quail off your dish? Did you worry at all that your mushrooms and date puree might not be able to stand on their own?

Reynold: Well, the quail was actually not part of the dish idea — it was only if I had time to do it. In the end it actually didn't need it. It's based off a mushroom course I ate at Noma 2.0 back in November 2019.

Also why put on something that isn't perfect? You only get judged on the plate of food you serve — I'd probably lose if I had kept on the overcooked quail.

MasterChef contestants' tribute to Poh

  MasterChef contestants' tribute to Poh The MasterChef contestants have paid tribute to Poh Ling Yeow following her show elimination on Sunday night's Back To Win season.But on Sunday night there was an outpouring of sadness from viewers, the show's judges and Poh's fellow contestants, as the 47-year-old cook was finally eliminated, narrowly missing out a spot in the top 5.

PS: How did it feel to have Jock tell you how much he wanted to try your quail, and not have any to serve him? Did you feel embarrassed to have overcooked quail in the top six of the competition?

Reynold: Too bad! And there's definitely nothing to be embarrassed about!

The competition isn't easy and we all make mistakes, no one is a perfect cook/chef, especially in the MasterChef kitchen. The dish was still incredibly tasty without it.

PS: Were you confident that your mushrooms and date puree and your chocolate brownie with madeira gelato did enough to "hero" the dates and madeira?

Reynold: It wasn't easy to feature the dates in the savoury. It easily could have been done in a dessert. I was struggling with which one of the ingredients I should use in the dessert or savoury.

The madeira gelato ended up being one of the best gelatos I've ever tasted/made. I was more worried about the dates not being prominent enough, although I knew it was a really tasty dish.

PS: What's motivating you going into the top five?

Reynold: There are better dishes I'm still itching to do on MasterChef. The dry spell went on too long and I truly lost my confidence as a chef. Then, during the last elimination, I remember promising the judges that if I make it through I will never put up another bad plate of food in this competition.
