TORONTO, April 15, 2014 /CNW/ - At the conclusion of last night's episode of CTV's MASTERCHEF CANADA featuring an emotional family reunion for the home cooks, Mike Green, a journalist from Winnipeg, was eliminated from the culinary competition series.

Mondays at 8 p.m. continues to be the home of the MASTERCHEF franchise as MASTERCHEF returns to CTV for its Season 5 premiere on Monday, May 19 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, featuring resident judge Joe Bastianich. But first, the noted American restaurateur visits the MASTERCHEF CANADA kitchen next week to judge a special Mystery Box Challenge that pits the home cooks' expertise with Italian cuisine against the clock.

Episode 13 Recap
The home cooks are told that their challenge will revolve around family-style dishes, and better still, they'll be cooking for their actual families! The emotional reunion sees the Top 5 home cooks reunited with their partners, parents, and children. As the winner of the last Pressure Test, Marida gets the choice of one or two partners for the challenge, and picks Tammara to join her. The duo comes out on top, leaving Eric, Kaila, and Mike to the Pressure Test - a 60-minute challenge to prepare a perfect, medium-rare Steak Frites and Béarnaise Sauce. Kaila wins, and Mike, with an undercooked blue steak, is sent home.

MASTERCHEF CANADA airs Mondays at 8 p.m./7 p.m. CT on CTV and CTV GO (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times). Last night's episode is now available on demand at CTV.ca and the CTV GO app.

Viewers can also catch Mike live on CANADA AM and CP24 BREAKFAST on Tuesday, April 15 as he dishes on his elimination from MASTERCHEF CANADA. Mike will also perform a live cooking demonstration on the MASTERCHEF CANADA 'Redemption Round', this morning on THE MARILYN DENIS SHOW on CTV.

Coming up on the all-new penultimate episode of MASTERCHEF CANADA (Monday, April 21), it's the most challenging Mystery Box of the season when the four finalists face the tough love of American MASTERCHEF judge Joe Bastianich, and create a dish using his favourite Italian ingredients.
