‘MasterChef’ preview: Josh gets emotional as the top 3 face off

We’ve seen some big showdowns on “MasterChef” so far this season, but none of them have been bigger than what is going to be coming up on Tuesday night’s penultimate episode. Only two people are going to square off for the ultimate title, and all three of the people remaining are worthy. We have the comeback king in Josh, the consistent contender in Becky, and the inspirational story in Christine.

So what’s the fist challenge of Tuesday night’s episode going to be? Based on what the preview video below suggests, we are going to have the opportunity to see all three of the remaining home cooks face off in what is the final mystery box challenge of the season. What’s under the box this time? Cookbooks — or at least what their cookbooks could look like if any of these three ends up winning the show. Gordon Ramsay quickly asks all of the contestants who has inspired them the most over the course of their lives when it comes to their cooking. Unsurprisingly, every single one of them ends up saying their parents. (You also see Josh tearing up in the video.)

We are wondering whether this challenge involves the home cooks seeing some of their family members and getting some inspiration from them, or cooking something that they know that their loved ones would like and then having them taste it. Whoever ends up winning this challenge is going to have an enormous advantage in the final elimination challenge of the whole season, and this is where the final two will be named.

Who are you looking for to win this season, and what do you think is going on with the mystery box challenge? If you want to check out our recent interview with contestant Monti Carlo, be sure to head on over to this link.
