Last night’s challenge on MasterChef, where George Calombaris and three of his chef friends dropped by the house unexpectedly and presented the top five with unusual core ingredients to cook with in their house, was dubbed the “Worst Nightmare Challenge.” For Dani, the only holder of an immunity pin, things got even more nightmarish when she found herself in the bottom two with Ellie after she failed to execute her liquorice-based dessert to perfection. George explained to Dani that tonight’s elimination is the last chance she has to use her immunity pin — if she decides to use the pin, it means Alana will automatically face Ellie in the elimination challenge.
When it came to making a decision, Dani said, “I guess I have to weigh up if I think that I deserve to be in the finals week. And I have to weigh up whether the others would use their immunity pin if they were in the same position, and whether I’m ready to fight it out and make it to the end of finals week.” For her part, an upset Alana said, “It’s hard when you think you’ve done a good job and by default you’ve gotta go into elimination.” Unfortunately for Alana that’s the way the game works — what’s the point of having immunity if you don’t use it, especially when it matters most? Do you think Dani will use the pin?
