Williams in an earlier episodePoker pro David Williams continues to push forward on the latest season of MasterChef. On Wednesday evening’s show on FOX, Williams’ “Blue” team won their challenge.

Each team had to cook a pork dish for 101 farmers, which included picking fresh vegetables from the ground, according to Entertainment Weekly. Williams reportedly helped save the challenge for his team when he had to carefully slice off burned parts of pork.

Williams is competing for the $250,000 grand prize and a cookbook deal.

Despite the drama on the show, Williams told Card Player this summer at the World Series of Poker that “the pressure of poker dwarfs the pressure of MasterChef.”

I have played with David a few times and always found him to be a very nice and cordial guy. But he is coming across as a little bitch on Master Chef. He petulantly bitched and whined when his teammates didn't choose him to sit out elimination cook-off after his team lost miserably in competition that proceeded it. They got crushed and David was captain of the team. IT WASN'T EVEN CLOSE, THEY GOT CRUSHED AND HE THOUGHT HE DESERVED TO BE THE ONE CHOOSEN...GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK AS IF ANYTHING HE SHOULD HAVE REFUSED GOING UPSTAIRS IF HE WAS CHOOSEN WHICH HE DESERVINGLY WASN'T. Then on last episode the DJ from Vegas (ONE OF THE BETTER CONTESTANTS ALONG WITH TERRY and the mom from Kentucky) rightly said he was one of the worst cooks left in competition after being asked by Gordon who he thought were the weakest remaining contestants. Again he acted like a little petulant bitch with his rebuttals. He does have culinary talent but he is among the worst of the remaining contestants and hasn't come close to winning any of the competitions. Last week he escaped elimination by the skin of his teeth. I realize he is very competitive guy and I am sure he is really a good guy overall but based just on his Master Chef appearances he just comes across as a little bitch. Sorry David but that is the way you have come across.

David did help his team win last challenge but had absolutely nothing to do with culinary talent. He masterfully cut off burnt part of meat that was indeed burnt. I do that with toast all the time and I am thinking of applying next year. Just kidding as again I am sure David is really good guy and he needs to quit letting his competitive fire spur petulant behavior.
