MasterChef season 9 episode 7 preview: Alexi Lalas stopping by

MasterChef season 9What’s coming up on MasterChef season 9 episode 7? Tonight’s episode was one of the most predictable of the season but moving forward, there could be a little more creativity.

Not only will there be a Mystery Box challenge featuring some sort of difficult ingredient, but the elimination challenge will feature none other than a soccer legend in Alexi Lalas! Given that we’re currently in the World Cup, it makes some sense for the producers to bring in a soccer great — even if there is no American team over in Russia competing at the moment. It’s a chance to give the kitchen a little bit of star power and this is probably not the only occasion in which we’re going to see that over the course of this season. It’s something that we do often get a chance to see a few times over!

We should note that the preview highlighted a somewhat-shocking ending / elimination … but can there be a shocking conclusion at this point? That’s a good question, largely due to the fact that we don’t know all that many people as of yet. It’s hard to really differentiate some of the people who struggle from some who succeed right now. (Rest assured that once we get a little bit later in the season, we’ll highlight more of our favorites within this particular space!)

At least, at the moment, we would say that this is a show with a pretty good cast and, apparently, a penchant for starting some conflict with one another. That’s exciting at least from the vantage point of drama. We have a feeling that the squabbling between the contestants is far from over…
