In the “Pitch Garden” the judges try to clarify, exactly, what bug juice is and tell Ippy that he left out a pretty significant part of the story. They turn to address Martita and say that she showed no personal connection to the oranges and that her cracks are showing. Martita quickly pulls her skirt down. Not those cracks Martita….
Martita launches into a story about how her father worked in the citrus field and migrated from place to place for jobs picking citrus. Why didn’t she tell that story?!?!? Her family is an American Dream Story and it gives Gigantor chills- oh, wait, it must be feeding time for her. Gigantor wishes Martita made the story more personal.
The judges send Ippy and Martita away so they can talk.
What the hell are we going to do with these two?
Bob is a fan of Martita’s food. She has a natural warmth, but they are 9 weeks in, they shouldn’t STILL be pulling their personalities out of them. They seem little moments of star quality but she is not consistent. I don’t understand how they can say this. She IS consistent. Consistently, impersonal. As for Ippy, they love his POV: offering Paradise to everyone! But they still need more energy. Can he command a stage and an audience?
Martita and Ippy come in… and the judges have made their decision: Martita is out.
And here is my the prediction I wrote in my notes prior to the start of the show. Yes. Yes. I am THAT good. Ha ha.
Just call me Oda May Brown
Martita says, in a zombie, serial killer kind of way: “you haven’t seen the last of me.” Now THAT should give Gigantor chills. Martita is at peace with it. She wants to see what the world has for her and it’s not about the prize but about the journey.
Who will get the axe next week???
