It was high drama on a recent episode of MasterChef Brazil when one contestant found herself unable to open a jar she needed to complete her dish. In a panic, and facing certain elimination, she remembered a very important rule of thumb when it comes to cooking: if there's one thing all fathers are good for in any kitchen, it's opening stuck jars. Fortunately for this wannabe master chef, hers was standing several feet away in the viewing gallery. She raced over to him with the stuck jar, which dad was able to open with one quick turn, saving the day and creating a fantastic father/daughter television moment.
It was a pretty sweet scene. Though, as someone who's watched plenty of MasterChef, I'm left wondering what she could've been cooking that required a jar of any kind? Was it part of the Pantry Challenge? Was she making PB&Js? If this was the American version of the show and she presented Gordon Ramsay with food prepared with ingredients from a jar, he would've smashed the dish against the nearest wall while dropping a few F-bombs.
I'm pretty she would've also been called out for cheating and disqualified.
