The 12 Worst Dishes of 'MasterChef' Season 8

MasterChef is a show for home cooks getting a chance to elevate their dishes and learn from world-renowned chefs. For some it's an opportunity to get into a restaurant, for others it's just a way to perfect their cooking skills.

In the first challenge for the Top 20 on season 8 of MasterChef, the contestants had a grocery bag filled with 12 ingredients any home cook would have on their shopping list, such as chicken, potatoes and ground beef. They could make any dish they wanted with the ingredients, as well as the staple pantry box, and it seems that most relied heavily on that pantry box. So, was there an actual challenge in the mystery box challenge? Could the basic challenge mean the rest of season 8 will be easy for the contestants, or will it get harder for them as ... more Comments
