The contestants are introduced to special culinary guest judge Edward Lee, who reveals the third Mystery Box challenge. Contestants lift their boxes only to find a $20 bill. They each have 5 minutes to shop for ingredients priced in the pantry without spending more than $20. Then they have 45 minutes to prepare four entree dishes to present to the judges. Not only will the winner and the winner's dish be featured in Family Circle magazine, but they also avoid having to participate in the elimination challenge.
