Oh, WH’s new mystery box basically has…well, I think I saw chicken thighs, and fish sauce. In her words, “what the hell is fish sauce, and why does it taste like death.” That’s actually a valid question.
So, now that they’re all in a great mood, Gordon kicks off the cooking festivities. They seem to think Beckster will be ok, because she had chicken thighs for her dish, and Josh gave her chicken thighs. Nevermind the other 14 ingredients being different. They seem a little worried for DareDevil, because Becky’s box is a bit of an acquired taste (see what I did there?). Lastly, Bastage is pretty convinced that WH has no hope of pulling off the Vietnamese-styled dish that she’d have to make with DareDevil’s ingredients…
After a brief walk around, the judges all seem to think that Becky is the lead pony yet again. Speaking of ponies, the worst case for me is that I get one in the final four, which is a drastic improvement over last year. Yay!
On the other hand, it sounds like somehow WH is pulling her dish off well enough. TG is impressed, at least, and Bastage is a bit stunned to hear it.
So, time ticks down, and everyone puts their hands up to prove that they aren’t cheating, and then Becky starts swearing like a sexy little sailor. She forgot to plate her crispy chicken skins!!!
Facepalm quota met for episode 3.17…
She’s super pissed at herself. That’s understandable an dal, but it’s not like this is an elimination round. So she doesn’t win. And she probably doesn’t get in the top 3. Whoops. Hopefully that doesn’t send her home.
So the first person called up is Josh. He took Frank’s Italian ingredients and made a savory bread pudding. Teddy asks Frank the Toaster what he was gonna do with his ingredients. The answer is that he was gonna make a sausage sandwich. Suddenly TG is very mad at Gordie for mixing things up. Objection! Speculation, your honor… (withdrawn). Anyway, the bread pudding turns out to be fantastic. Even Bastage loves it, and you know how much he wants to hate a non-Italian dish made with ingredients for an Italian dish.
So, the second mini called up is…WannaHooch. Yay, time for more obnoxious GOLLY GEE GUYS HOW DID I GET UP HERE THAT’S JUST CRAZY!!!! And of course, more tears. It’s also great.
The last one called up is DareDevil. She got Becky’s box. I’m not too proud to admit that I’d pay for that video. The judges, not surprisingly, love her dish. Becky takes a little credit for the dish, since she chose the ingredients. Obnoxious, yes…but not entirely unfair. Imagine what would’ve happened if AAliens got to choose someone’s mystery box…
Now THAT would be entertaining Television!!!
