The culinary reality show has entered its final stretch and every day the tests are more demanding for the finalists of the competition, something that has been demonstrated in the last week in which the celebrities have had to test their creativity, agility and culinary skills .
The challenge they had to face on this occasion was to make a croquembouche, a French cake or dessert, which is made with a pyramid of dough chocolates filled with cream, which are known as profiteroles. In the end, they must have a candy coating. This last component was precisely the Achilles heel of the participants, since several suffered burns during their preparation.

The test had an additional condition, since the tower had to have a height of at least 30 centimeters. To achieve this measurement, they had to prepare a sufficient amount of caramel to allow consistency when assembling the structure.
The working pairs were made up as follows: Adrián Parada and Daniela Tapia, red team. Nela González and el Negrito, green team W. Martha Isabel and Natalia Sanint blue team. The actress Carolina Acevedo was left without a partner, but the production gave her the option to choose a team, so she decided to join the red team, which was the winner.
The kitchen stoves in the cooking reality show burn brighter and brighter. The difficulty of the tests rises to a higher level and puts the contestants against the wall. This is precisely what happened to Daniela Tapia and Adrián Parada, who put their red team at risk.
During the night several celebrities were injured by burns in the middle of making the candy. One of them was the Cuban actress, who at the end of the test did not realize that the candy was still hot, she could not stand the heat of a tray and dropped it, leaving her group without enough profiteroles to assemble the base of the pyramid.
With the dough chocolates on the floor, Daniela helped Adrián to try to save most of them, rescuing them from the kitchen floor. It is at this exact moment that Nicolás gave them the warning in a strong and imposing tone. “I trust it is the more than 25 cameras we have, be careful, if they use at least one of those profiteroles, they would be disqualified. The rules are clear and we have them very well observed,” warned the competition judge.
Daniela Tapia, Adrián Parada and Carolina Acevedo answered the call and against the clock they used their agility, creativity and talent to complete the test, while the other contestants struggled to achieve the minimum height that the croquembouche should have.
After deliberating, the chefs decide to save the red team, which had the most time and which they managed to conquer with their preparation, moving to the Top 6 of the competition. The other celebrities must prepare for the elimination challenge.
