Next week on MasterChef season 12 episode 11, prepare for a blast from the past courtesy of Christine Ha.
Is Christine the most famous winner in the history of the franchise? We’d argue so, as she cooked some absolutely incredible food while also being an inspiration to many due to her visual impairment. She’s also gone on to open multiple restaurants since the show — in other words, she is precisely who a lot of the current contestants should aspire to be once they get done with this season.

So how is she going to be involved in this upcoming episode? Let’s just say that it is tied to the next Mystery Box Challenge. For more on that, be sure to check out the full MasterChef season 12 episode 11 synopsis:
The remaining chefs are challenged with a “Winner’s Mystery Box,” curated by the Season 3 champion, Christine Ha. The contestants are tasked with creating a Michelin-starred Vietnamese dish, but there’s a catch—they must use every ingredient given to them.
To put it mildly, this is not going to be an easy challenge for all of the remaining contestants. It’s one thing to be required to use a few ingredients … but all of them? This could be especially hard for the remaining chefs who don’t have any experience cooking with some of these ingredients. That’s where a basic understanding of food comes into play, plus also the ability to be creative and think outside of the box. If your specialty is outside of Vietnamese cooking, why not find a way to combine some of these ingredients into something more familiar? There are, after all, about a trillion different fusion-themed restaurants all over the globe; this is easily something to be considered here.
In the end, we’re just stoked to see what everyone comes up with!
