As for the elimination challenge - I think Tre and CJ nailed it. Watching what these guys are doing - you realize that everybody else is just standing around. Those two had it down. It seemed like the other teams didn't really figure out what the challenge was. As for Hung and Joey -watching those two kind of battle it out, I was surprised to see Joey get sent home. I really was, I thought the cheesemaker Sarah would get the boot. That was what my prediction was. In this particular competition, I never really thought that either dish was successful. So it comes down to -- which one is worse? It's very interesting watching Howie when he is on the chopping block. He's very aggressive and vocal, he doesn't handle the stress well.
Hung said he had it figured out, but then he didn't apply his knowledge -- that's how I look at it. It was obviously going to happen - if you cook your pasta and put the sauce around it, what do you think is going to happen when it's steaming and hot and you put it in the freezer? It's going to be a mess. I'm surprised it wasn't worse. All in all, a good episode, and I have to get back into the kitchen. See you next week.
