‘MasterChef’ Episode Guide (Aug. 4): Chefs Choose Between Two Mystery Boxes

“Top 11 Compete” (08/04/14) – In the next mystery box challenge, the remaining home cooks will be faced with a challenge unlike any other. For the first time in “MasterChef” history, the home cooks will get to choose between two mystery boxes.

One box is filled with everyday ingredients, while the second contains high-end ingredients. The winner of the mystery box challenge will not only win immunity and advance to the Top 10, but will also choose which type of stuffed pasta the remaining home cooks will create in the elimination challenge. Find out who rises to the top and who gets sent home in an all-new episode of “MasterChef” airing Monday, Aug. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur Joe Bastianich and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot return for Season Five of the culinary smash hit “MasterChef,” airing Monday nights at 8PM EST on FOX.

More hopefuls than ever before auditioned at “MasterChef’s” open casting calls in Chicago, IL; Columbus, OH; Denver, CO; Houston, TX; Kansas City, MO; Los Angeles, CA; New Orleans, LA; New York, NY; Orlando, FL; Philadelphia, PA; and Phoenix, AZ to prove they have what it takes to make a mark on the culinary world. Only one talented home cook will join Season Four winner Luca Manfe; Season Three winner Christine Ha, the first-ever blind contestant; Season Two winner Jennifer Behm; and Season One winner Whitney Miller in the elite group of “MasterChef” titleholders.

This season will feature 30 contestants representing 14 states from all walks of life – including an advertising executive, a petroleum landman, a stay-at-home-dad, an admissions counselor, a high school student and a church music director – all with the hopes of turning their culinary dreams into reality.
