watch Chopped Season 33 Episode 5 online,In each episode, four chefs compete in a three-round contest, attempting to incorporate unusual combinations of ingredients into dishes that are evaluated by a panel of three judges.At the beginning of each round (“Appetizer”, “Entrée”, and “Dessert”), the chefs are each given a basket containing three to five mystery ingredients and are expected to use all of them in some way. Although failing to use an ingredient is not an automatic disqualification, the judges do take such omissions into account when making their decisions. The ingredients are often not commonly prepared together. For example, in the episode “Yucca, Watermelon, Tortillas,” the Appetizer ingredients consisted of watermelon, canned sardines, pepper jack cheese, and zucchini. The competitors are given access to a pantry and refrigerator stocked with a wide variety of other ingredients.
Each round has a time limit, typically 20 minutes for Appetizer, and 30 minutes each for Entrée and Dessert. These limits have been extended on occasion for special-format episodes and for rounds in which one or more mystery ingredients require additional preparation/cooking time. The chefs must cook their dishes and complete four platings (three for the judges and one “beauty plate”) before time runs out.Once time has expired, the judges critique the dishes based on presentation, taste and creativity and select one chef to be “chopped” – eliminated from the competition with no winnings. Ted reveals the judges’ decision by lifting a cloche on their table to show the losing chef’s dish, and one of the judges comments on the reason for their choice to the eliminated chef. In the Dessert round, the judges consider not only on the dishes created by the two chefs during that round, but also their overall performance throughout the competition. The winner receives $10,000.
