MasterChef episode 8 2021 – UK: Five more hopefuls get their first chance to win an apron by cooking their signature dish – something that tells judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace who they are as a cook. After tasting all five plates, John and Gregg pick their two favourite dishes, awarding their cooks a place in the next round.
The remaining three contestants then cook off in a new test, the Favourite Ingredient Challenge. Gifted with their chosen favourite ingredient, they must create one exceptional dish that showcases it. The stakes are high, as one cook will be sent home at the end of the round.
The four remaining cooks now compete for a place in the quarter-finals. They must cook two courses that will excite not just John and Gregg, but also MasterChef champion Steven Wallis and 2006 finalist Dean Edwards. With just two quarter-final places up for grabs, they need to be good to survive.
MasterChef episode 8 2021 – UK
MasterChef is a competitive cooking show television format created by Franc Roddam, which originated with the UK version in July 1990. The format was revived and updated for the BBC in February 2005 by executive producers Roddam and John Silver with series producer Karen Ross.
The revived format is sold internationally by Banijay. Its first international adaptation was MasterChef Australia, which began in 2009, and then the adaptation was executed within several other countries of the world.
The show’s format has been exported around the world under the same MasterChef logo, and is now produced in more than 40 countries and airs in over 200 territories.
The format has appeared most often in four major versions: the main MasterChef series, MasterChef: The Professionals for professional working chefs, Celebrity MasterChef featuring well known celebrities as the contestants and Junior MasterChef, a version created and adapted for children, which was first developed in 1994 and has also expanded to other countries in recent years.
Despite the four major versions, in 2012, Australia created the fifth version called MasterChef All-Stars, for former contestants to raise money for charity. In 2018, Ukraine created MasterChef Teens, for teenage contestants. Brazil created MasterChef: Para Tudo (MasterChef: Stop Everything), a TV show featuring interviews with judges and former contestants, plus recipes and memes, presented by Ana Paula Padrão.
