Season 02, Episode 13 – “Kirby’s Speed Shop (Columbus, OH)”
Kirby Smith, 50, was an avid dirt-track racer who had been building cars since he was a teenager, and he could fix almost any engine. He was widely known as a good, generous guy who devoted himself to his family. His son, 21-year-old Dustin, followed closely in his footsteps, always eager to help him at his shop, KirbyÃÂs Speed Shop. KirbyÃÂs older daughter, 26-year-old Heather Brooks, was married and had just had a baby boy. In 1996, Kirby remarried Becky Smith, and the two had a child together. They separated in 2002. In the days around his murder, they were in the midst of a contentious divorce. Kirby had re-entered the dating world and joined Match.com. On March 7, 2004, while working late at his shop, Kirby sat down at his computer to scroll through some potential dates, but no one knows what happened after that. Around 7:30 the next morning, one of his employees found KirbyÃÂs bloody body next to the computer. Kirby had been shot once through the shoulder and once through the back of his head with a High Point 9mm. Sgt. Randy Long is a seasoned investigator whoÃÂs been with the Columbus Police Department for 26 years. HeÃÂs become close to KirbyÃÂs children, Dustin and Heather, and has vowed never to give up trying to bring KirbyÃÂs killer to justice.
Season 09, Episode 11
It’s the last of the semi-finals and the six remaining celebrity cooks continue to battle for the MasterChef title. The celebrities’ initial challenge is a MasterChef first – a relay invention test. Split into two teams of three, both teams must create one dish between them using a chicken and a range of vegetables, herbs and spices. Each team member has 20 minutes to make their contribution to the dish without communicating with one another – so each cook must attempt to decipher what the dish is meant to be from the clues left behind by their teammate, and then carry on. Both teams must play carefully to their strengths. With the first team member being responsible for designing and starting to cook the dish, the second celebrity doing the main body of the dish and the third finishing and presenting it, will the celebrities be able to create something successful?
Next the celebrities have to showcase their own style and flair with pastry. They must each create one savoury and two sweet items for afternoon tea at the Bingham Hotel in Richmond upon Thames. Each celebrity contestant must deliver beautiful looking and tasting treats for the local members of the fearsome WI, who aren’t afraid to say exactly what they think.
Finally it’s back to the MasterChef kitchen to create one exceptional dish inspired by someone close to them. The celebrities must impress John and Gregg by showing that they can put passion into their dishes and have the heart and determination to remain in the competition. The greatest cooks in the world are able to show emotion through their food. Will our final six be able to do the same?
For the two cooks who don’t make the grade, their competition will be over.
