Masterchef Junior semi final round SPOILERS

Firegoat | Dec 10, 201406:18 AM     25

So we're down to four, Samuel, Adaiah, Abby and Logan. It starts out with a salmon filleting competition. The kids go off and get their big fish. Abby said the fish was as big as she was. Was nice to see Samuel offer to help her with it and lift it up onto the bench for her. The kids get 30 minutes to get as many perfect 7 oz. fillets from their fish as they can in order to get an advantage for the elimination challenge. Nothing like watching little kids with sharp knives and giant fish, eh?
ADaiah and Samuel don't seem to be having too many problems. Abby is just painful to watch. Adaiah wins the advantage. For the challenge they have to cook a "stunning dish" with one of their salmon fillets. Adaiah gets to choose between 4 refrigerators, contining 100, 50, 25 and 5 ingredients, then she gets to assign the remaining refrigerators to her competitors. She takes the 50 ingredient fridge, giving abby the 100, Samuel the 25 and Logan the 5. Her strategy being the 100 ingredients would confuse Abby (pretty much right) the 25 were boring ingredients too simple for Samuel.
The kids start cooking..... and...... the two girls are going home.
Lots of crying. Lots and lots of crying. Samuel and Logan move ahead to the finale.
