It’s the boys vs. the girls on tonight’s episode of MasterChef when the six remaining home cooks are divided by sex for a one-of-a-kind Chef’s Table team challenge. That means Alejandro, Abe and Michael face off against Suu, Kelsey and Autumn.
The Chef’s Table will consist of a Michelin Star lineup of Val Cantu, Jonathan Yao, Sherry Yard and Tanya Holland, who will judge a two-course menu from each team.

In this exclusive video, team captain Alejandro’s blue team needs to pull it together because time is running out, and when Gordon Ramsay goes to check on the status of their steaks, he finds them to be ice cold, not piping hot as they claim.
“Give me a snout and a tail and I will stick them back in the field,” Gordon shouts at them. “Now get the pans on and get them basted!”
“I am frustrated with my teammates,” Alejandro says. “As the captain, I have to figure out how to make this done in the time we have remaining. Otherwise, we are going to lose this challenge.”
