Tammy Wood narrowly missed elimination in the last MasterChef Canada episode.

Agassiz chef Tammy Wood lands in bottom two but makes it through in MasterChef Canada latest episode

Wood now in the top 13 for this nationally-broadcast series. Stay tuned next Sunday for another challenge, another elimination.

After a high-stakes day under the iconic Cirque du Soleil blue-and-yellow Big Top, the Masterchef Canada Season 2 home cooks returned to the kitchen for the first Pressure Test of the season, which ended with judges Michael Bonacini, Alvin Leung, and Claudio Aprile eliminating Debra Pangestu, a Public Relations Officer from Richmond, B.C. from the competition. With 13 home cooks remaining, Masterchef Canada continues this Sunday, March 8 at 7 p.m. on CTV, with an Elimination Challenge inspired by Season 1 winner Eric Chong.

After dividing into two teams on the stage of Cirque du Soleil’s show Kurios: A Cabinet of Curiosities, the Red Team, led by Andrew Al-Khouri, and the Blue Team, led by Line Pelletier, prepared a buffet meal for the show’s acrobats, performers, and crew. As tension and conflict brewed under Line’s authoritative military leadership, the Red Team’s cooperative team spirit led them to victory – and earned them immunity from elimination.

Once back in the Masterchef Canada kitchen, the Blue Team faced the season’s first Pressure Test which came with two twists. First, the winning Red Team was given the option to save one member of the Blue Team from elimination, and they decided to save Jennifer Innis. The second twist gave Line the opportunity to save one member of her team from elimination, and in a dramatic and surprising turn, she decided to save herself. Once safe in the gallery, Line had a shocking collapse and following medical attention, it was determined she was dehydrated and would recover. With Line in the hands of paramedics, the five remaining home cooks faced the Pressure Test featuring a Québécois favourite; tourtière. After a tension-filled cook and judging, Christopher Siu, Michael Motamedi, and Sabrina Poirier all moved to the next step of the competition, while the bottom two home cooks were Tammy Wood and Debra Pangestu, with Debra heading home.

In the next new episode of Masterchef Canada, Wood and the other home cooks face their second Mystery Box Challenge and this time, victory rests on an iconic Italian favourite. The home cook who most impresses the judges selects the ingredient everyone else cooks with in an Elimination Challenge inspired by the journey of Masterchef Canada Season 1 winner, Eric Chong.
