The pressure cooker of the finale brings out the sweat and the spice as our cheftestants wok the streets of Singapore.  

Oct 8, 2010 - The Dish

The night's Quickfire Challenge asked each of the Cheftestants to cook Singapore street food using only a wok. But when Kevin apparently forgot to do his homework and learn how to cook with a wok, Padma wasn't the only one to lay the smack down! "So I guess Kevin probably isn't winning this one," said Danielle. Christine wasn't giving Kevin a break either: "Hell, if I were going to Singapore, I'd know how to use a wok to win $125K." But tweenbeansupreme wasn't worried about woks: "I wish they would just have a macaroni and cheese battle." Shhh tweenbean, don't give away the finale food fight!

It was clear the chefs were under a lot of pressure and the hot weather wasn't helping matters. West Coast vixen Namella Kim lashed out: "Oh hell to the no. No sweat please. Sea salt is cheap, plentiful and hygienic!" Pre-hypertension candidate MattyBravo didn’t seem to mind as he countered, "Nothing wrong with a little sweat, guys! I love me some salty food!"

But in the end, old time pros like TimMerritt6 and the indefatigable Burnt Toast called it when they said, "Ed has this in the bag," and "C'mon Ed!" Fact is, most folks were pleased when Ed pulled out the surprise immunity-winning Quickfire. Shouts of "EDDDDDD," "Good for Ed," "Way to go Ed," and "Woohoo!" from Mimi, Hope, Barbara, and Shelley proved that point.
