‘MasterChef’ Episode Guide (Sept. 13): Home Cooks Face Skills Tests

“Something Fishy/The Semi-Finals” (09/13/17) – In this week’s mystery box challenge, the Top 6 get a special treat as their family members join them in the “MasterChef” kitchen. The contestants will then have to cook a dish inspired by their families before competing in an elimination test that will send one or more of them home.

Then, the remaining home cooks will face a series of skills tests that will determine who will make it to the finale in an all-new, two-hour episode of “MasterChef” airing Wednesday, Sept. 13 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Season Eight of the hit cooking competition series “MasterChef” premieres Wednesday, May 31 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. This season, award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay and renowned pastry chef Christina Tosi will be joined by celebrated chef and restaurateur Aarón Sánchez on the judges’ panel, as they put the Top Forty contestants through a series of challenges and elimination rounds, in order to turn one home cook into a culinary master.

This season on “MasterChef,” the home cooks will learn how to prepare live crawfish, cook for and serve 50 VIP guests to celebrate Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel and Casino’s 50th anniversary and create a Nutella dish inspired by their childhood, as well as take on the infamous “MasterChef” tag team and restaurant takeover challenges. The winner will claim the title of “MasterChef,” a cookbook deal and the $250,000 grand prize.

“MasterChef” is produced by Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato, and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam and Endemol Shine. Robin Ashbrook, Elisabeth Murdoch, Eden Gaha, Georgie Hurford-Jones, Gordon Ramsay, Yasmin Shackleton, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler serve as executive producers.
