That leaves us with Jake and Lee. Gordon expected to see both of them in the final: "So I'm a little bit pissed, to be honest, that you are both standing there." Imagine how they feel, man. Especially Jake, who's just been summarily dismissed. That leaves us with Lee, who can go back to his lukewarm rivalry with Sharone, and one last opportunity to say goodbye to Jake. "You have been a huge source of inspiration," Gordon tells him. "Stay away from construction, because you are a talented guy." We get a few misty water-colored memories of Graham sticking up for Jake during the auditions show -- "I put my neck out for you, and I would do it again in a second," Graham says -- and just like that Jake is gone, to fume about how much better his burger was than Sharone's.
Next time on MasterChef: Two more people go home! Four people stay right where they are! I'll try to remember to watch this show instead of part one of the Top Chef finale from Singapore!
