We’re not going to lie: Wednesday night’s “MasterChef” episode has a challenge in it that we’d have a much harder time doing than almost any other one out there. While we’re not a vegetarian by any means, there’s something about cooking live animals that is terribly uncomfortable. It takes a certain constitution to be able to do it.
With that, it’s fair to say that we relate to Diamond in the exclusive sneak peek below; she actually is a vegetarian, so this is going to be doubly-difficult for her to be able to go through this challenge. Unfortunately for her, she’s probably going to have to if she wants to stick around in the competition. It’s one of those sort of things that if you’re familiar with the show, you know that they’re probably going to make you do over the course of the season and you have to be prepared for it. It’s certainly why we’ve also advocated for more vegetarian tasks, as well, so that people who are more well-versed in that sort of cuisine can have something that really suits them, as well.
The best thing that someone like Diamond can do in this situation, provided she wants to complete the challenge, is just try not to think about it too much. It sounds in the sneak peek that she doesn’t particularly want to do it at all, but there’s plenty of time in the episode for her to change her mind.
