In the end, the Green Team wound up in front of the judges. But who would go home? Keith? Lindsay? Sarah? Ty-Lor?
Well, when the judges started asking questions, all hell kind of broke loose. Keith thought Sarah threw him under gut bus, and I kind of agree a little. Tom seemed to have an inkling as to what happened though, which I inferred from his question about who was present when the shrimp was purchased. Althoughh Keith was called out for the shrimp, Sarah also made a point to say that she's never had an enchilada with a flour tortilla. Before Hugh brought it up during the challenge, I didn't even know that distinction, so i obviously starting Googling the difference between flour and corn tortillas and their use in burritos versus enchiladas. And you know what? I found arguments for both sides. So, although maybe enchiladas don't traditionally have flour tortillas, I think if they could have been made delicious, it could have been overlooked. The fact that the chefs didn't even make their own tortillas did not help. I can't believe they did that honestly. Anyone knows that although store-bought tortillas can taste good, especially when grilled (I don't make my own tortillas), but if they're sitting in a buffet, get cold,they get kinda stale and gross. But, alas, Sarah and Lindsay were safe.
Ty-Lor's fritter was a miss, but not bad enough to send him home. So, Keith went home. I was pretty bummed -- what a gentle giant he was, but he represented himself well, and I know he'll be OK.
Did you agree with the judges' decision? Let me know! Until then, Have a Nosh!
