  • The chefs enter the MasterChef kitchen for the first time and take part in a Mystery Box challenge. The winner picks the main ingredient for the Invention test. The remaining 14 chefs prepare for their first team challenge: feeding hundreds of Marines at Camp Pendleton. The team that wins is safe from elimination, while the team that loses returns to the kitchen to compete in the first pressure test.

    • Joe : Chocolate is the devil in the box. It'll tempt you and take you down the wrong path.
      Gordon : Ok, first off, my scariest dish: Jenna's. She's doing a sandwich, you do a sandwich with leftover pork. Graham : Yeah I heard her say she's doing a 'ham' sandwich, but there's no ham anywhere in there, just because it's pork, it's not ham.
      Faruq : Watch out, watch out, cuz Whitney's coming!
