Jordan Roots is a homecook from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and the 7th placer of MasterChef Season 4 after failing to impress the judges in the Elimination Test with the Quail that was given to him by the Mystery Box Winner Krissi Biasiello in Episode 19.
Jordan presented his dish to Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot, and Joe Bastianich. He prepared Ancho Chile Tostada with Cilantro Mint Aioli. After the judges tasted and evaluated the dish, he gained the approvals of all the three judges, with Graham noting that the dish was exploding with flavor and that he was disappointed to see that there wasn't a plate for each of them. He then received a white apron from Joe, moving him to the next stage of the competition.
