Yvan is the next victim and because he has had a problem with his cadence, they have rigged his microphone to go out. Yvan begins his presentation talking about his girlfriend and how people are intimidated by oysters…and his microphone cuts off.
Oh good! Now I can yell like a lunatic and it will be okay
He drops the mike and just starts to yell, so that the audience can hear him. He continues on with no problem and finishes on time.
Apparently, someone turned the key in Bobble Head’s back because she is clapping and cheering like a freak.
Am I the only one who sees it?
B&G think that he was flawless and that the adversity seemed to make him better. They think his love bite is the most elegant and sophisticated dish he has served so far.
For Ippy, Bobble has arranged to have the audience talk loudly during his segment and for a bunch of them to just get up and walk out. He begins by saying that he’s from “The Other Paradise- Hawaii” but it looks the same as South Beach. Ippy starts to tell the story of his parents and how they inspired his dish. People start talking and Ippy is a little shocked, but Bobble Head motions for him to just talk to her. Her Jedi-Mind trick seems to work, but then the people start leaving.
Smell ya later
Ippy tries to coax them back by saying “We haven’t even gotten to the main course yet…” but his goose is cooked. He thanks the people who are there for staying and finishes up. Bob thought that it was a tough glitch to have. Uh, ya think?!?! They note that he got a little angry, but his dish was, certainly, unique.
Martita is on deck and they have decided to give her the wrong ingredients. Martita welcomes the audience to Martita’s Mesa and tells them that Mesa means “Table.” She then realizes that her poblano peppers are absent and have been replaced with some small round red peppers. She, correctly, starts to demo with the available peppers. She finishes up with 28 seconds left. She, wisely, realizes that she can’t just stand there and smile until time runs out, so she just starts to ramble. But she never tells the story about her girlfriends coming over for cooking lessons. Gigantor and Bob think she had no spark and was no fun and she showed NONE of the Martita that they love. This was a major step backwards.
Oh, you wanted me to TELL that “Girls Night In” story?
The next Demo is Martie, and her glitch is that some of her items are “misplaced.” Martie comes out gung ho and talks about her “Fish in a bag,” but sees that her grouper isn’t there.
Dang it, Cooter, someone stole my grouper
In fact, all of her prepped food is not there. She says “That’s ok, we’ll just wing it!” She comes out from behind the counter to show how to form the papillote, and finishes right on time. Bob thinks she was unflappable and that her dish was elegant and her fish was moist.
It’s either Fish or Intestines… I can’t tell
Gangster knows she has a problem with her timing in the last round, and she knows he has to nail it. So Bobby has decided to give her all of the wrong time cues. Gangster starts to talk about her clam and talks about her dad when she sees a 5:30 time cue. WHAT? Next up is a 4:10 time cue card goes up? That’s longer than her segment… at 1:28 real time left, the timing guy motions counting down from 5. And she starts wrapping up…5…4…3…2…1…. then suddenly he is telling her to STRETCH, STRETCH, STRETCH and then the timing guy just walks away.
