Usually, MasterChef exaggerates: most extreme pressure test ever, or biggest cooking competition in the world!" but this finale was super real.

Families and bull balls make for an interesting challenge this week. First, everyone gets a loved one to show up -- Christian's fiance, Leslie's wife, Courtney's little bro. And they have to make a fancy version of their favorite home dishes.

I know it's good TV, but it's irritating. It does, at least, send a message that girls aren't the only ones who catfight. When Gordon tells you to stop measuring your genitals and cook, you do it.

I hate tag team challenges -- it gives me Leslie-like stress. But we can start at the beginning. The contestants al get letters from home that make them cry and then they have to cook a savory apple dish. No sweets. Courtney, smug little thang, wins, though I was feeling Christian's stuffed chop.

For this week's Mystery Box challenge, there's a fancy box and a cheap box. I would have totally chosen the cheap box, because there ain't nothing wrong with processed cheese dip.

So tonight was all about romance and two teams -- with Ahran and Elizabeth at the helms -- had to cook for a bunch of couples. And Gordon Ramsey's wife, who was wearing delectable yellow heels that made even Courtney gape in awe.

Let me tell you one thing, MasterChef fans: cooking on a line is no joke. I thought I was going to be a little bummed at the fact that there was not a lot of "master chef-ing" this week except for the pressure test, but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

Here comes the drama. This week the chefs had another team challenge of cooking for a beach wedding. Simple task of making an appetizer involving scallops and an entree of sea bass. Simple, right?

Tonight we got the first mystery box filled with ingredients for a dessert. Overall, it was a lot of drama. Elizabeth and Leslie yelled at each other for almost no reason at all, until Gordon had to come tell him to act like a grown up (since he's the only one on the show).
