* One mystery box challenge had the chefs make a dish using live crab. Sheetal, who was of Hindu faith, almost had a full blown panic attack over killing the crab. Ramasy, noticing this, offered to do kill the crab for her but she managed to do so and was named top 3 of that challenge. Still, it really shows that Ramsay cares about the contestant's well-being, and would never force one to do something they aren't comfortable with.

* Reba's elimination. She took it well, and Ramsay said there is so much respect for her with her {{Determinator}} attitude (she started working at the age of 15), and Reba herself thanked the judges and her fellow home cooks for this experience.

* A small one, but in the Auditions, David Martinez explains to the judges that he learned how to cook because he couldn't afford to take his wife out to the restaurants where they wanted to go, so he instead learned to cook her favorite dishes.

* On the third day of auditions, Stacey was first up and cooked them a steak with vegetables. Gordon and Joe was unimpressed and while the latter noted that she has the ambition to become a chef, he will not reward it. Like he did with Jake from Season 1, Graham (pissed at both of them) and dragged them back to re-taste the dish while pointing out all of the highlights. While it's unknown if Gordon changed his mind, Joe did and rewarded Stacey with an apron. It's both a mixture of heartwarming, as Gordon and Joe very, very rarely go back on their decisions, and awesome.

* In episode 6, Joe asks Monti why she lacks confidence despite producing great dishes. When Monti says it's due to her recent divorce, Joe remarked: "Well he's missing out on some great food then."

** The contestants had to make an apple pie. Christine, who is blind, was plagued with doubt on how her pie turned out and was convinced it was a mess. Chef Ramsay proceeded to describe to her how beautiful her pie was, scraping the top so she could hear how good the crust turned out, and confirmed her pie tasted delicious. He told Christine to stop doubting herself and be bold, and congratulated her on a job well done.

Episode 5]]: 5 had two:
** The blue team were undergoing a pressure test because they lost to
the red team. When team captain Frank is told he can pick any member of the team to escape the pressure test, Gordon adds the fact that he can pick himself. Frank immediately says no because he was responsible for the outcome and it was partly his fault they lost to begin with. Then when he tries to pick Felix, who's idea had been better than Frank's, she too refuses. This happens again with Scott, another contestant, and the opportunity is finally picked up by Stacey, but you can tell how she hates herself for doing it as she accepts while on the verge of tears. It might be HonourBeforeReason, but damn if it isn't incredible to watch.

* Joel, a US army soldier, entered the competition to win the money to open a restaurant. He wanted to name the restaurant after his son, who drowned when coming home from Military School. Tearing up as he told his story to the three judges, noting that he must be destined to do this despite surviving being shot at and an exploding truck, he was awarded with an apron. In the commentary he notes that he hopes his son is proud.* The episode with Paula Deen had this crossing over with TearJerker.

* Masterchef Asia, Season 1, Episode 9: Before the challenge, each of the contestants is given a dish at random which they must replicate. A problem arises when Jasbir and Priya, who are both Hindus, receive dishes with beef in them, hence, they cannot taste them as they cook. Sandrian and Blanche, who received dishes without any beef in them, were asked by the judges if they were willing to swap dishes with either Jasbir or Priya. Blanche obliges, swapping with a grateful Jasbir, even though it costs her later, [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished when she ends up in the bottom three]] (but survives elimination). (Incidentally, in a case of LaserGuidedKarma, Sandrian, who refused to swap dishes, made the worst dish and was eliminated.)

!!! Masterchef Junior
* In episode 4, Gordon decided to help Sofia and gave her a pep talk when she was having trouble with her cake batter. [[spoiler:Even though she got eliminated that episode, she did complete the challenge.]]
* During the same episode's mystery box challenge, after learning that Dara was making a souffle and seeing her anxiously watching the oven, Gordon stopped by her station to join her in offering up a prayer to the "god of souffle" that her souffle would set up properly. [[spoiler:It didn't, but the judges commended her for her ambition, commenting that they'd never seen anyone try to make a souffle for a challenge if they didn't ''have'' to.]]
* Season 3 Episode 5 of Masterchef Junior, Jenna starts panicking when her sauce breaks. Andrew stops what he's doing and helps her fix it. Gordon comments that they've never seen something like that before.

* In the first challenge of the season, Nathan was ripped to shreds by guest judge Wolfgang Puck and barely avoided elimination, with Puck stating that he "had a lot to learn". Gordon also signalled that he was perhaps too immature to compete in the competition, which Nathan took to heart, having been bullied as a child for being so. In the second challenge, Nathan completely redeems himself and begins crying over having the best dish of the challenge, leading judge Christina to say: "If Wolfgang Puck was here now, he'd be as proud of you as we are."
* Like with Tyler in Season 5, the group are unanimously heartbroken when Andrea is disqualified in episode 10 for serving her dish three seconds too late, especially considering she had been a strong contender to win the competition.

** Nathan ended up being eliminated that episode, but he proclaims he has learnt not to be ashamed of who he is. Gordon tells him he'll "never have to take any crap from anyone ever again" and everyone is in tears because of just how damn likeable the kid is. Nobody has a bad thing to say of him.
