The high-pressure task tested the mettle of both groups of budding chefs, with one team facing an elimination challenge if they fell short on the day.
In the end, the green team lost the challenge - and fans took to Twitter to blame it on a long-running MasterChef 'curse of the green aprons'.

Early in the show, one astute MasterChef fan took to Twitter to alert viewers to the so-called curse.
'Stephanie deSousa hopefully you can break the curse of the Green aprons. It's been a thing for years,' they tweeted.
Stephanie was on team 'green apron' on Wednesday night's episode.
