The final five MasterChef contestants were given the task of cooking a dinner for actors at the historic Bristol Old Vic - with the help of maverick Michelin star holder Michael O'Hare.
Jack, Jane, Stuart, Juanita and Billy were over the moon at the prospect of working with such an interesting chef, but the "complex" was just too much for many MasterChef viewers.
Stuart had to prepare a "pre-dessert", a hot and cold soup with a Chilean lemon sorbet at the centre. So many questions...
How can a soup be both hot and cold? And since when was there such a thing as a pre-dessert?
The "pre-dessert". Isn't that what normal people call dinner? #Masterchef

I very much enjoy the concept of a pre-dessert #masterchef

The only lesson I'm taking from this is that pre-dessert is a legitimate thing. Quite proud as I've been doing that since 2006. #Masterchef

Jack had the task of making a milk chocolate, lavender and honey mousse, and beetroot puffed potatoes with violet ice-cream. Which kind of looked like something else...

It was topped with custard made out of baked potatoes. Yes really.

"an unusual custard made from baked potatoes and cream." BURN THE ABOMINATION. #masterchef

How do you like your eggs?
Made from lactose powder.
And your custard?
Got to be made from potato.

Meanwhile, Billy made barbecued rib of beef with edible egg shells - and used a hairdryer.
Contestant on #masterchef is drying some balloons he's pegged to a washing line with a hairdryer. Looking forward to downloading the recipe.

Life really is too short to make edible eggshells with balloons and a hairdryer. I can hardly believe I typed that ?#masterchef

When they tried to mess with a classic, it was all a step too far...

can't just have fish & chips can you. It's got to be drizzled in a jus of molten lava & served on a bed of sautéed jelly beans #Masterchef

expensive dishes hours of work so how does it taste?... just like fish & chips #masterchef

But for many, prawn brain juice on Jane's roasted prawn dish was a real low point.
Might watch the prawn brain squeeze on a loop I ever fancy a diet. #masterchef
