*** By Season 8, Graham and Joe are not in the panel and Christina Tossi and Aarón Sanchez took their places. Aarón is "The Nice" (his comments are mostly constructive and serious without any sign of annoyance), Gordon is "The Mean" (he is the most blunt of the three), and Christina is "In Between" (she can be both sweet and stern when she needs to be). In fact, Gordon takes on "The Mean" role up to the level that in the season 8 finale, Joe,who came back as a guest judge, is now more of the "In Between"!

** Joe himself returns for the finale of Season 8, joining the main three judges.



** Season 8 had a short lived example with Mark, who looked like he didn't care about the competition and even suggested to another competitor to "ignore" whatever advice the judges had. He was the first eliminated.

** Finally averted in the finale of Season 8, in which both Gordon and Joe (who came back as a guest) were intrigued by Dino using molecular gastronomy to create a pseudo-caviar out of espresso.

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Brazilian [=MasterChef=] season 3 had Gleice, an {{Adorkable}} and sweet 20 year old student with a DarkAndTroubledPast. She was loved by the audience, judges and contestants alike, even though she never really stood out during the competition. Her elimination was one of the most emotional moments of the show's run, bringing even the judges to tears. [[spoiler: When she came back, the other participants were chanting her name.]]

* EverybodyLives: In the [[OnceAnEpisode seasonally recurring]] [[EndangeredSouffle souffle pressure test]], the judges will not eliminate anyone who makes a flawless/restaurant quality souffle. Twice, the 14th episode of season 2 and the 17th episode of season 8, all three contestants produced souffles of sufficient quality and the judges declined to eliminate anyone, citing that in light of their accomplishments doing so would be unfair.
** In a similar vein, during the 22nd episode of season 4, all three contestants in the dish replication pressure test successfully replicated the dish and were all spared from elimination.

** A lot of season 5 viewers also seem to dislike "aerial entertainer" Courtney, likely due to her ever-present stripper heels, alarmingly obvious narcissism, and endless supply of overweening cockiness. The most notable example was episode 12, when her team lost the challenge and faced the pressure test, and she was given the choice to save anyone on her team, including herself. She did outright say in a past episode (when Willie was in a similar situation) that she would save herself, but she managed to basically give the finger to her teammates by saying "the reason we did so well was because [[SmallNameBigEgo we had such good leadership]]", and saved herself because she was so proud of herself.

** From U.S. Season 1, Slim in one elimination challenge sent up a terrible passion fruit fondue with lamb that didn't have the fat cut off entirely. It was so terrible that Joe refused to eat it, and trashed it once Ramsay finished his judging.
** From U.S. Season 2, one team challenge had the home cooks make hors d'oeuvres for a private party. One of the blue team's dishes supposed to be Chocolate Profiteroles, but Esther had a lot of problems trying to make the puff batter work out. When she did make a good batch, it was only confounded when Ramsay revealed that their mousse filling was broken. With very little time, the blue team could only scrape up a dainty dessert of chopped berries with cream. A very embarrassed Ramsay not only called it the worst dish of Masterchef so far, but the worst dish to ever leave his own kitchen (they used his West Hollywood kitchen for the challenge).



*** A similar problem would occur later on when Yacheica failed to make three white chocolate truffles, and could only put in a half part of the white truffles.

*** A similar situation happened later on in the Truffle's pressure test where Yacheica had little to no white chocolate truffles with her only one being a half piece that Ramsay asked if she bit into it.
