Kumar Pereira Cooks Better Massaman Curry in MasterChef Pressure Test that Sends Andrew Henderson Home

Is Kumar the New Elimination Terminator of MasterChef?

MasterChef contestant Kumar Pereira survived his fourth elimination last night, sending youth worker Andrew Henderson home after they competed in a pressure test where they had to cook the best version of a massaman curry after a flavourless, watery one was presented to them. They were each given eight steps where they could add an ingredient to the badly-cooked original dish, both of them carefully watching the other’s decisions. While they both forgot to add key components like potatoes and peanuts to their dishes — much to the other contestants’ shock — they at least remembered about the coconut milk with their respective final steps, which ended a challenge filled with lots of stress and very different cooking techniques.

When it came to the tasting, judges Gary Mehigan and Matt Preston were split in their decision — Gary preferred Andrew’s while Matt liked Kumar’s better. In the end, the judges agreed that Kumar’s resembled a traditional massaman curry more than Andrews, thus ending Andrew’s dream of winning the MasterChef title. So Kumar dodged another bullet — Hayden has even nicknamed him the “Kumanator” — and it seems like he could be on his way to being this year’s Jonathan Daddia, the contestant who survived eight elimination rounds. Do you think Kumar has what it takes to go all the way?
