Micah’s food has too much cream, but then again that rises to the top sometimes. Lizzie’s salmon is self-described as horrible. Eliza’s carrots are dragging the elk down like a .375 cartridge on the tundra.
Chris Pratt is a very funny guy. Loved the Bachelorette thing.
Danyele’s boar is not the favorite. Josh’s big boy delight is not seasoned well.
Josie’s dish lacked contrast. So far this quartet is out of tune. But then Tesar’s chowder kills it. It’s revered and held on high.
Overall everything seemed so much better than the last challenge. SO MUCH BETTER.
Off to the judging table. John, Kristen, Brooke and Sheldon are first and they are obviously tops. Winner is Brooke with an impeccable squid stuffed with lamb, a dish people really were still talking about the next day. It was apparently amazeballs good. It’s a good day for her with twin wins.
Bottoms are Eliza, Josh, Stefan, and Danyele for not-so-good dishes. Padma skools Josh on self-promotion. You want to be known as the “good pork” guy, not the “can’t cook pork” guy. Gail wants to analyze Danyele. Gail Simmons, therapist of reality TV. Tom joins in on this advisory counsel. You’ll be fine, Danyele.
Eliza is outta here. With class too. You go Southern girl. We’ll catch a WSP show sometime soon.
Sorry, Hugh, but we must have been watching different shows. In my version, Micah was in the bottom four, and Stefan was in the safe middle. In fact, I was sure Micah was going to be PYKAG'd and was very surprised to see Eliza eliminated.
Okay, I may be a gringo but honestly how many Latinos (let alone Canadians) do I have to hear say "tamale" instead of "tamal"? It's un tamal, dos tamales! Although I prefer the Puerto Rican variation: un pastel, dos pasteles. Pity that dish isn't better-known.
Exciting challenge, and loved the concept of squid stuffed with lamb, although I have no idea what that would taste like! Love you, Hugh, but please retire amazeballs from your vocab.
Liked this episode a lot better than last week. Congrats to Brooke on her new car! Bottom finishers, was surprised Lizzie was let off the hook, no one liked her salmon, not even her. I would have switched Josh and Lizzie. Also was very surprised Danyele was saved, I mean she was pretty much writing her resignation letter to the judges. That said, Eliza isn't a major loss for the show.
