Which 'MasterChef' Contestant Was Eliminated Right Before the Finale? (VIDEO)

'MasterChef'It was down to the final four going into the finale week of 'MasterChef' (Mon., 9PM ET on FOX). On Monday, one was sent home, with the three remaining contestants competing tomorrow in the finale. Coming off of a win last week, Suzy was given the opportunity to pick the teams, which should have given her an edge.


She chose to work with Christian on the Red Team, creating a Blue Team of Adrien and Jennifer. Unfortunately, the chemistry wasn't there in the kitchen between her and Christian, which doesn't come as a real surprise considering who we're dealing with here.

The Red Team impressed with a Thanksgiving dinner, though judge Joe Bastianich felt it was a disrespectful theme for an international panel of judges; the show had brought in judges from 'MasterChef' formats around the world to enjoy an American-themed challenge. When Christian blamed Suzy for their selection, Bastianich lit into him for their team's lack of unity and support.

The Blue Team wasn't as strong with their prawns and lobster dish, but Gordon Ramsay praised their teamwork and ultimately they were declared the winners. That left Christian and Suzy to battle it out for the last slot in the finale with a lemon meringue pie. Is that more American than apple pie? Well, it is more challenging to make, so we'll give them a pass on this one.

Both pies were praised for their taste, though Ramsay gave that edge to Suzy. But her presentation was lacking, as Bastianich proved by holding it up and watching it fall apart. Ramsay felt Christian's meringue was too light and broken, disintegrating in your mouth, but it looked better than Suzy's on the plate.

Despite Christian taking on a "villain" role this season, or maybe because of it, the judges went with presentation over taste, and Suzy was sent packing. Now Christian joins Adrien and Jennifer in the finale, where he can blame whichever one of them beats him for his loss. Who will win 'MasterChef'? Could Christian actually take the title?

I love watching Master chef just as much as the next guy, sure Gordan is tough and blunt, Joe scares the crap out of me with his sullen stare, I have watched the show since the beginning and I of course have my favorites, I have loved Adrian from the start cause he was a regular guy trying to get a foot in the door, and gain ground in the world of food. He did me proud! I wish it was him of course I feel as if he got robbed but it is not my show...congratulations Jennifer, Sorry Adrian!

If you watch Masterchef: The Professionals do you know who was the most recent winner and the name of the pudding he made, and if possible the recipe.
