This week's Quickfire Challenge asked the chefs to prepare four Godiva-style truffles representing golden moments that summarize their lives. Talk Bubble chocolate lovers like @LynnNChicago shouted out their approval. "Top Chef Just Desserts - Godiva Chocolate – Heaven!" she beamed. Amen, @LynnNChicago.
Not only did the chefs have to dig deep into their own memories, but they had to do it in just two hours! "They have to move fast but be super careful in their techniques," said show host and hair god @Johnny_Iuzzini.
Talk Bubbler @noresbo even learned a thing or two from the Quickfire Challenge. "I really need to start emulsifying all my ganaches," said the Talk Bubbler who, by the looks of their Twitter avatar, is around four years old. Don't worry, @noresbo! Most people don't learn the importance of emulsification until at least 4 1/2.
When Morgan included green tea in his dessert, Twitterer @eyelineronacat was ready for her serving. "Green tea ganache... GIMME!" Can you at least say please?
Talk Bubbler @000lll000 was thrilled with the Quickfire decision. "Go Morgan!" they tweeted. "Take *that* Yigit!" And perennial Bubbler @TalkingTV also approved of the decision tweeting what turned out to be an Elimination premonition. "Whew for a second I thought that Danielle was going to beat Morgan in a Quickfire!"
It was on to the Elimination Challenge and Talk Bubbler @parksidecandy was pumped: "The truffle combinations sounded delicious. Can't wait to see how the anniversary cakes turn out!"
That's right, for the night's Elimination Challenge each contestant had to bake a cake for Sylvia and Ben's 61st wedding anniversary. While most everyone was excited to dine with the cute couple, bubbler @JeffHouck wisecracked, "If I get to 61st anniversary, the last thing I want is a cake. At that point, I'll just want to be changed." Wait a minute, that wasn't cake in your diaper? Ew.
But @baseballchickie captured the general sentiment of the Bubble when she tweeted, "Aww....I want to be married for 61 years!" That's sweet, but save it for the Craigslist personal, chickie!
When Morgan finished the Elimination Challenge early, show host @Johnny_Iuzzini wasn't necessarily impressed, asking, "Morgan finished early again. Is there nothing else he could do?" Remain expressionless, perhaps?
Then there was Fan Favorite in waiting Yigit about whom cleverly-named bubbler @CleverName24 said, "I think that maybe Yigit has hit his breaking point. That's too bad :("
But most Bubblers were worried about Zac as the judges mulled their elimination decision. Twitterer @JeffHouck said, "Is it possible that Zac's hair has thinned between the start of the Quickfire and the judge's decision?" Don't worry, a little disco dust will thicken it right up!
And in the end, their concerns were justified when the judges sent Zac packing. "Top Chef #JustDesserts, I am breaking up with you!" cried Bubbler @onnawufei. You'll be back, @onnawufei. If only for a drunk dial!
After that a flood of cries for Zac poured into the Bubble like former cheftestant @ericwolitzky who said, in his Zen way "Love you Zac!" and @seacoastrunner who shouted "Your personality just sparkles... and you're a kick-ass chef!"
As Zac packed his tools and went, Talk Bubble Host @Bravotv couldn't wait to get in a shameless plug by tweeting "Did you check out last week's TCJD Talk Bubble recap - it's a laugh riot!" Well, did ya? If not, we forgive you. At least you read this one!
Don't forget to join us again next week for the Talk Bubble Finale. There will be cliffhangers, double-crosses and probably some cake!
DANIELLE - ARE YOU A "TEAM DIVA WANNA BE?" or are you really auditioning?
I got so tired of TEAM DIVA....don't you know that when you group up, and turn against others and give off that aura of imperialism, IT NEVER WORKS...I learned that in grade school!!!
With only 4 chefs left, and only watched the first 15 minutes, I had to turn it off!! I can't believe how Zach (however, I do love you!) took all the deco bags!! Come on, you are better than that...You know the reason you guys do that is because Morgan is a threat!! He has surprised me.....and Morgan, I felt so bad when you said you were lonely and missed your son...I feel for you...All the negate talk within the show from other contestants about you, I have seen them eat their words many times!! You never cease to amaze me.....SO..Keep your head up! You are fully confident with who you are, and I would hate to see you change that! All the times you have been unsure of a quick fire, or challenge, and your art pieces that emerge after such comments, are like WOW (x 1 mill) wow's......
Another thing that gets under my skin.....DANIELLE!!!! The chef on the sidelines throughout team diva, falling towards Morgan for support, and now she has turned her back on stability!!! R u Kidding me!! Danielle, you do know that your team diva dreams won't be accomplished!
I can't believe the back stabbing that goes on, and although we don't know the actions behind closed doors, I can only comment on what I see... As I had to laugh when I saw the preview of whats happening later on in the show (of which I've only watched 15 min of)....when shows Morgan with all the bags....like he's teaching the children a lesson....
My last comment...each and every chef I know is fabulous! I'm only commenting on what issues we the viewers see....Not attacking anyones character off camera as I'm sure even I would be different in a fast-paced competition...
I wish Zac had not left with such a nasty last private chat..that was really beneath you my dear...I know you were stresses but what you said about Danielle was beyond un-kind! And if Morgan doesn't re-act 9or not) the way you think he should, is that really your byisness? No my dear, it's not. Stay focused my love, it will reflect in your work..good luck to you in the future.
BRAVO to BRAVO for another creative cooking show. Having watched the whole 1st Season of Just Deserts I'm ready for another. It was fun and inspired me to do a little sweet experimental cooking myself. I was pleased to see that Yigit won. Zack stayed true to himself wnd went out with an over the top creation. I was also glad to see Danielle in the finals. Morgan is obviously a loving father as well as a very talented chef. I do however hope that his homophobic attitude does not spill over to his son. Calling a homosexual a little girl and a fairy is not only disrespectful and hate filled sentiments that are bad enough when used by children, but adults and parents should know better. And to make such hateful comments on National television worse. Shame on you Morgan! Your own son my one day be gay. Karma can be a bitch.
