In a lot of ways, you can argue that MasterChef: Generations episode 5 is what we’ve wanted to see from the beginning. After all, we are getting to the part of the season where the typical challenges are kicking off! That includes the first Mystery Box, plus also an elimination challenge that will include some element of strategy to it.

The generation theme for this season is still going to be important for at least a little while. It remains to be seen if that will be the case forever, but this is an easy way to get to know the contestants a little bit better. Combine this with the challenges, and you have a pretty fun basis to form the rest of the competition.

Want to get some more information now on what’s ahead? Then check out the full MasterChef: Generations episode 5 synopsis below:

The four generations go head-to-head as the top 20 enter the MasterChef kitchen. The chefs are faced with their first mystery box challenge where they are presented with a childhood photo of themselves and tasked with creating a restaurant-worthy dish that highlights their favorite nostalgic comfort foods from their youth. The most impressive dish grants an entire generation immunity from elimination while a chef from the remaining three teams risks going home in the all-new “Back to the Future – Mystery Box” episode of MasterChef: Generations airing Wednesday, June 26 (8:00-9:02 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (MCH-1405) (TV-14 L)

Since we have not even seen the entire field compete against each other yet, it is far too early to be sitting here trying to label any favorites. The only thing we’re confident that we want to see is the competition continue to be intense — and also hopefully, some more twists and turns along the way. This show does suffer at times from following a specific form; why not shake that up here and there?
