Frenchie decides that she is going to make a “Thanksgiving Bite.” She is too afraid to tell stories from her past. Is she ashamed that she’s a Beauty School Dropout?
So she just describes the bite and says that it’s an ode to her family and friends- Rizzo, Kenicki and Danny Zuko. She takes a bite and almost chokes on her food. She is super nervous.
The Judges question what is her connection to this bite? They wish they knew more about her personally. They learned nothing about Emily from her EPK, although her Thanksgiving bite was delicious.
Ippy decides to make a crispy wonton chip with smoked salmon. Ippy says it’s hard for him to figure out what the judges want from him. Um… more energy? They have said repeatedly that he is too laid back. He says that the camera just sucks the energy right out of you. How many camera are on him??? A sloth has more get up and go. Ippy welcomes the judges to “Ippy’s Voyage to Paradise.” Again, the judges remark how low energy he is and that he seemed nervous. He also gave told them how is mother was a New Yorker and his dad was Hawaiian “and together they made the person standing in front of you.” Which is a little creepy to talk on a food show…the last thing I want to think about when I see food is Ippy shooting out of someone’s vagina. Besides, he would probably be wearing an ugly hawaiian print diaper.
But Ippy says he isn’t going to change who he is for anyone. Good for him. Of course, in the context of this contest this may not be a great decision.
Martita needs to dig deep. Martita decides she will be making a Butternut Squash, poblano, black bean Flauta. Hmmm, that sounds like it will taste like puke, but it’s the kind of puke you have to “dig deep” for. Martita is not worried because “I am a great story teller.” She is? I don’t know one single thing about Martita, other than she is Mexican. Martita begins her EPK by saying that she is first generation from Mexico and presents her Farta, i mean, Flauta. And then she’s done. 30 seconds early. So, what? No big deal, she’s a great story teller, right? Nope. She just stands there and stares. and stares and stares.
The judges are STUNNED.
They tell Martita that this is not an entry level position and they are embarrassed for her, and disappointed that she took this challenge so casually. Her bite was good. But, it’s a little like- “So other than that, how did you enjoy the theater, Mrs. Lincoln?” Vampoor smells a fresh corpse.
Ohhhh, last and least, here comes Little Nikki Sunshine. Because Nikki is now a “girly girl, she has prepared a grilled Scallop with Nori and Flowers. Yum. Scallop sprinkled with fish food and weeds.
Nikki explains that she loves nothing more than going to “ethnically diverse neighborhoods” to get ingredients and then making something delicious from them!! The Judges are confused. Is she saying GIRL or GRIL?
Is she “Girl on Grill” or “The Grill Next Door.” Why are there flowers in this dish? What purpose do they serve? The judges think she is having an identity crisis. Nikki snaps that she is trying to take their notes from last week and is showing her delicate side.
