Incontrovertible proof that dads are the best at unscrewing lids, a father of a MasterChef Brazil contestant stepped in to help out with a particularly tricky jar in dramatic fashion this wek.

Everything about this video is wonderful, from the daughter's sheer panic over the receptacle to the look of surprise and awe on other audience members' faces as the dad removes the lid and calmly hands the jar back.

His save came in the dying seconds of the MasterChef heat, and his heroic actions attracted over 300,000 views on YouTube in 24 hours.

Someone really needs to commission a primetime dad-based contest, with events including bleeding radiators, checking the thermostat and hauling Christmas trees.
