02x15 Top 7 Compete
Eight chefs begin this episode with a mystery box challenge. In this challenge the chefs are asked to cook surf and turf. They have a choice between fresh live shrimp, crab or crawfish and New York strip, ribeye, or short ribs. They must cook their entree in forty five minutes. The judges pick a winner and then go to the pantry where the winner is shown the childhood favorite dishes of the three judges, pizza, mac n cheese, and tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwich. The winner of the mystery box challenge chooses one from the three choices and the chefs are given forty five minutes to complete the elimination challenge. Two chefs are sent home.
