Most of the contestants tried their best to handle the situation, but ‘Tatán’ Mejía did not hesitate to express his discontent and concern when he saw his greatest fear come true.

“I kept it to myself because not even my wife knew, but now the whole world knows. This is costing me a lot of work. I am dealing with a feeling that I have never faced before,” Mejía said with obvious displeasure.

Later, in the middle of preparing his dish, ‘Tatán’ Mejía expressed his frustration at the challenge. “I don’t know how to put this pod in a ‘gourmet’ dish. I don’t think I’ll make it because I feel like I can’t get over my fear.”

Despite his fears, the contestant fulfilled the mission but was not called to the lectern, so it is unknown how his food turned out. “The judges were afraid to try my worm,” he said.
