MasterChef: Back to Win episode 7: Who was eliminated tonight? (July 13)

The latest episode of MasterChef: Back to Win was all about healthy meals and vegan dishes. MasterChef: Back to Win episode 7, titled “Gordon Ramsay Loves Vegans!,” featured some tasty recipes. Well…let me rephrase that, tasty for vegans. I’ll be honest, I’m not vegan so I can’t say I was craving any of the dishes this week. I’m used to craving every meal I see on MasterChef, but tonight’s dishes? Hard pass. Still, watching the competition is always so fun!

Tonight’s episode began with Gordon Ramsay showing off his skills by transforming his famous beef wellington into a vegan meal made out of beets. Hey, leave it to Ramsay to create a masterpiece for the tastebuds out of literally anything.

After demonstrating his flawless skills, the challenge commenced! To impress the chefs, need to be knowledgable about flavors to come up with a winning technique. Who created the best vegan dish? Who was eliminated? Spoilers ahead if you have not watched the episode.

Who was eliminated on MasterChef tonight?

The bottom three were Fred, Shelly, and Samantha. The chef who was eliminated in this vegan episode was…Samantha! And, honestly, it was the most heartbreaking elimination yet. Samantha seemed so sad and disappointed. But someone had to go home at the end of the day, and this was one tough challenge. We wish Samantha the best!

Who did you think would be sent home? My money was on Shelly, so I was so surprised to hear Samantha’s name. Was Samantha your favorite? If so, who are you cheering for now? Or who have you been rooting for since the beginning?

MasterChef: Back to Win returns with episode 8, “Southern Fusion with Guest Chef Tiffany Derry,” on July 20. Don’t forget to stay tuned for a new episode of So You Think You Can Dance next, only on FOX.
