Materchef contestant Lisa Diep has admitted the real reason she broke down before her shock elimination on Monday night's episode.
Speaking to Popsugar, Diep admitted she was dealing with an unaired injury.
The 32-year-old said, 'I actually burnt my hand holding the pot at the end of the cook, so I was in a bit of pain.'
'I was also emotional because how much I wanted to be in the competition actually dawned on me, and it was just overwhelming,' she added.
Despite Lisa's best efforts, the judges decided her time in the competition was over.
Lisa's ultimate dream is one to one day publish her own Vietnamese cookbook and is currently working on recipes to include.
The cook was also asked who she believes will take home the title of Masterchef, revealing she believes Sashi and Reece.
'They have the immunity pins and have done so well for the past couple of weeks, as well as the pair challenge.'
