Only three home cooks have made it to the Season 8 finale of MasterChef. There’s Brooklyn born Dino, who’s known for his ballet dancing (see link below). There’s Eboni aka Twerking Chef who’s also known for dancing (check her out twerking in her living room). And there’s Jason Newton. We haven’t seen Jason dance but we have seen him create dishes that are more like works of art than typical meals. And yes, presentation does count.
Jason is a fan favorite to win MasterChef. And while it is a talent competition, popularity plays a part on the show too. When fans of Jason describe him, the most often used word is “humble.” When MasterChef fans voice their opinions of Eboni, the most often used word is “arrogant.” (At least that’s what an informal survey turns up.) MasterChef airs Tuesdays at 8pm on FOX.
