Although she put in a great effort, Chrissie fell victim to Gordon Ramsay’s two-part elimination challenge, which involved cooking eggs and bacon.
“I think I’ve had a very full MasterChef experience,” Chrissie said as she left the kitchen.
“All the panic, the things going wrong and all of it, I’ve had a bit of everything … it’s been fabulous.”
Sunday night’s dessert challenge got the better of Dami, with her Sweet Potato Basque Cheesecake failing to get her over the line.
“I was really scared because dessert is definitely not my strength, so having to do that for an elimination was just so scary,” she told 10Play following her elimination.
“I was not used to having that much pressure on me, because when I’m cooking normally, that’s when I really relax and have fun and get away from all the stress, from everything else,” she admitted.
Matt Le Nevez
Actor Matt Le Nevez became the third celebrity booted off Celebrity MasterChef after a blindfolded taste testing challenge.
"I never had any desire to be on reality television at all, but to me, MasterChef isn't that, it's a show that highlights and exemplifies cooking," he said of his experience.
"Families revolve around the kitchen and I want my family to have the greatest experience they can in the kitchen."
You'll be missed, Matt!
Thorpey became the next celebrity to farewell the MasterChef kitchen.
In a challenge that forced the contestants to choose between more time and coveted ingredients, with four different pantries revealing more and more food at different points of the precious 90 minutes they had to cook, a struggle with meringue saw Thorpey sadly remove his apron.
He chose to do MasterChef for his love of cooking, however, the time pressures of the show led him to realise that his preferred style of cooking doesn't really suit the show.
“I like cooking things that take hours! Things that take six hours in the oven or slow-cooked lamb, really robust flavours,” he said.
“I’m the kind of person who likes to be left alone in the kitchen. I’m like, there’s the wine. Pour yourself a glass and get out of my kitchen!”
In a challenge that introduced the ‘secret ingredient’ of wattleseed, Archie Thompson was left stumped.
“I had just never even heard of that before,” Archie told 10Play after his elimination.
“I wouldn’t even know what that would taste good in.”
Although he plated up a stunning first course that really impressed the judges, it was the lack of wattleseed that eventually sent him packing.
“You can kind of see afterwards, I was just spent. I was emotionally spent. I just knew that was probably my ride and it was time to get off. I felt a lot more out of my depth in that challenge,” he admitted.
Archie shared his elimination on Instagram this morning, writing “The words I didn’t want to hear but the support was so beautiful to see from everyone.”
Beloved Aussie actress Rebecca Gibney was given 90 minutes to cook whatever she fancied, but still fell victim to a double-elimination, sent home alongside Dilruk Jayasinha. She seemed to take the elimination well, writing about how much she enjoyed the experience on Instagram.
"Honestly I had the most extraordinary time on @masterchefau. From the moment I walked through those iconic doors to the day I skipped out arm and arm with the wonderful @dilrukj I laughed, I cried, I hugged - A LOT and I made friends for life."
Funny man Dilruk Jayasinha also left the show last night, and also took to Instagram to reflect on his experience, which he took on with great spirit despite his lack of cooking experience.
"And that's a wrap on my cooking adventures on Celebrity #Masterchefau. Of course, I'm gutted I just missed out on the grand finale after coming so close, but when I think of the context of how far I came with so little experience, you can understand why I'm still a beaming, smiling goofball."
