While the last elimination challenge might have plucked a cook from Team Arrington, Next Level Chef episode 5 takes on a dish that might be even more controversial than poultry. Who will create the Next Level Burger?
According to FOX, Next Level Chef episode 5, “The Next Level Burger” features the following:
"Gordon Ramsay, Nyesha Arrington and Richard Blais challenge their teams to create all types of burgers! Each team is randomly assigned to a kitchen where they will need to prove that they can create magic in any environment, even when the odds are stacked against them. The best dish will keep one entire team safe from elimination, but one contestant will be sent home with their dreams up in flames in the all-new “The Next Level Burger” episode of NEXT LEVEL CHEF airing Wednesday, Jan. 26 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX."
A burger challenge might have the cooks running scared. While the top kitchen might have a plethora of ingredients, the best choices might clutter the cooks’ minds. If a person doesn’t normally cook with high end ingredients, it could cause a huge downfall.
At the same time, being stuck with no ingredients could be a huge hinderance. The cooks in the basement might need to create something out of nothing. Meat and a bun is not a next level burger.
Still, the twist element in this challenge might have a huge impact. While last episode’s twist of a green element may not have impacted too many dishes, a twist with a big flavor or texture could be a game changer.
Overall, the twist hasn’t had many cooks having to adapt tremendously. For the most part, they were able to muddle the ingredient into the mix. Maybe this challenge is the one that will have everyone on edge.
While Next Level Chef episode 5 will showcase these cooks impeccable burgers, everyone can join in the Next Level Burger challenge. As seen on TikTok, both Gordon Ramsay and Richard Blais have showcased their contenders. Many others have stacked high, smothered and grilled to perfection their version of that great burger. Just don’t scroll hungry.
Which burger will impress the judges and which chef will be sent packing? Be sure to watch Next Level Chef episode 5 on FOX Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST.
