The final 24 must learn fast and up their game as they are challenged with cooking from a mystery box of ingredients, cooking the same menu as their competitors and hoping to come out top, and taking part in tasks that are completely outside of their comfort zone.

Eighteen hopefuls received aprons with three votes from the judges, and 13 contestants with one or two "yes" votes have to cook again for the six remaining spots in the competition.
