Also in Wednesday’s first episode, the winner of the mystery box challenge gets a big advantage, leaving the other home cooks to compete in a pasta-themed elimination challenge.

Then, in the night’s second episode, the top six home cooks are split into two teams for a classic MasterChef challenge—a pop-up restaurant. But this is no ordinary dining experience—the customers are food critics, writers and chefs, and the restaurant is located in a Southern California vineyard!
