MasterChef’s Tessa Boersma breaks down in tears as she’s sent home after her Indian-inspired tacos fail to excite judges – after claims the show’s challenges were ‘stacked against her’

Tessa Boersma delivered Indian-inspired tacos on Sunday’s episode of MasterChef Australia: Back To Win, but her dish disappointed the judges and saw her eliminated from the competition.

The 28-year old was filling a challenge brief which called for something completely new that the judges had never seen before. 

She whipped up chapatti, which she said is like a wholemeal Indian roti, with tandoori flathead, asafoetida and mint raita, a pineapple and coriander salsa and a smoked Kashmiri chilli hot sauce.

However the judges felt the fish was overwhelmed by the hot sauce, and the citrus flavours, which left the dish ultimately tasting Mexican. 

Upon leaving, Tessa told the judges:  ‘I did as best as I could. It was, like… I couldn’t beat Reynold. You know, his mind is so incredible. But, yeah, like, I’m bummed, but I’m really happy.’ 

She then broke down in tears as she wished all her fellow contestants a sad farewell, particularity to fellow competitor Reynold Poernomo.

Oh no! The judges felt her fish tacos were overwhelmed by the hot sauce, and the citrus flavours, which left the dish ultimately tasting Mexican

‘See ya later. Well done, mate. You’re amazing. You gotta win it. Thanks so much. Sorry, I’m a crying mess,’ she said. 

Fans were disappointed with the outcome, with many feeling that Tessa didn’t have a fair chance against Reynold. 

One fan Tweeted: ‘Hearing Tessa say “I could never win against Reynold” is so heartbreaking like no honey you’re better than him in so many ways’.
