“MasterChef: Generations” Season 14: Sunshine eliminated after surprise turns out to be unwelcome

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: ‘MasterChef: Generations’ Season 14 contestant Sunshine Carlos faced elimination after she failed to impress the judges with her Dry Aged Ribeye with Mushroom & Pecorino Gratin and Brussels Sprouts with Aged Pancetta. She was thrilled to cook with aged ingredients and claimed that Native American culture uses many preservation techniques.

However, things started to fall apart for Sunshine when immunity pin winner Rebecka Evans threw a curveball and gave her team, Gen X, the surprise ingredient, 18-month-old “stiletto cheese.” Rebecka called the Gen X “her biggest competition” before dropping the twist. Sunshine was left “overwhelmed” by the setback and had no idea what to do with the bitter cheese.

Sunshine claimed in the confessional, “My dish is already so old. Stilton cheese is the most bitter thing you could ever eat. This is really bad.” She said furiously: “This is a giant expert show.” Sunshine spent most of his time thinking about the use of the cheese and didn’t start cooking until 20 minutes past the clock.

The Fox show judges noticed that Sunshine was a little exhausted and Gordon Ramsay decided to warn her to cook her ribeye. She used the cheese as compound butter which was particularly tasty but her dish lacked balance which cost her apron.
