For their outstanding participation in the repechage gala, Antonio, Estefanía and Nacho returned to the MasterChef Argentina competition (Telefe, Sundays at 22.30 and Monday to Thursday at 23).
"Staying on MasterChef means my dream isn't over. If all goes well, hopefully it will happen what I have dreamed of so much. There is Antonio for a while", celebrated the Salta, who was moved to receive the support of Germán Martitegui, Damián Betular and Donato de Santis.
And he said: "I'm not going to waste this second chance."

"I'm very excited. It's a mixture of emotions... I am very happy, I thank the jury", said, for her part, Estefanía, happy with the new opportunity she won.

These two were chosen by the jury to return to the contest. Instead, Nacho was selected by the vote of his teammates, those who are still in competition.

At the beginning of the day, the jury proposedto the participants that they face the main ingredient of the dish that came out worst and condemned them to elimination. "It's a great second chance night," proposed Wanda Nara, host of the cycle.
And then Betular told them that he had to "evolve and propose something superior to the recipe that left them out", preparing a dish in 60 minutes. "You're going to have to be creative and smart to be able to get back to MasterChef," Martitegui warned them.
Antonio got good reviews for his plate of tortellinis stuffed with shrimp. "I smell it and say 'oops, how strong this is going to be'. But then when I taste it, I feel the filling and everything, it's tasty. The dough makes a neutral part of the dish and is fine. It's not easy to use that paste and it's fine," Betular said. "The paste is subtle, well achieved shape and filling. The tomato almost got in the way, it could have been just the broth," Donato said.

And Estefanía, the other highlight of the day, prepared octopus with salad and baked sweet potato. Betular highlighted the "well cooked" octopus and the "sweet potato". "The flavors are very well mixed," Donato added. And Martitegui also pondered the octopus cooking and presentation. "I like this mess," the demanding judge analyzed.
