When the announcement that it’s a dessert challenge is made, Anna immediately gets all worked up. Seriously, crazy lady, lay off the nyquil & vodkas! Do you not remember nailing the last dessert challenge?
When Gordie tells them that Tanya has dictated what they’ll be cooking, BR immediately reflects on whether he’s been nice to her or not. Funny that somehow this is a friendliness competition? Like, “I won’t screw you over because you’re friends to me” kinda thing. There’s only gonna be one MasterChef, guys.
So, the dessert groupings are:
Tiramisu: Beautiful Rhino, Felix, Anna, and Frank the Tank.
Strawberry Shortcake: Sasquatch, Midnight Cowboy, AAliens, and DareDevil
Trifle: Becky, WannaHooch, Stace-aholic, and Josh
“Oh, shit…I’m gonna be in the bottom 3 today…”
On a side-note, WH seems pumped to be making a trifle.
AAliens tells us it’s time for his (don’t call it a) comeback. He feels like there’s no way he could screw up. Aside from the part where his dish going to be less good than at least Sasquatch and DareDevil? I see a bottom 3.
Also, lols, Frank gets the tiramisu. Welp, he’d better not lose this.
Also, Tanya says she decided to give Midnight Cowboy the strawberry shortcake because they’re friends. I just have to shut up and shake my head. I’m going to be too mean. But, I mean…well, she clearly found someone new to jerk off in the MasterChef bathroom.
Just before the commercial, Bastage stops over at BR’s station and tastes his cream sauce for the tiramisu. As Bastage puts it, he turned the mascarpone into cream cheese…
Yeah, that’s a bad thing…
Apparently even Beautiful Rhinos lack finesse.
Oh, right, so this whole thing with Stacy and Beckster is basically the same as BA Christian and Cammy last year. This time, Becky didn’t get enough gelatin, which means that component of her trifle will be, at best, lacking. She asks Stace-aholic if she has any extra, and of course the reply is now (as it should be…I support this move). But then, like right after, she does this little giggly dancy thing like she’s the most clever girl in all the world…
“I’m the most clever girl in all zee vorld!!”
Yeah, you’re not. Shut up and make your stupid dessert. Tanya tells us she gave Becky the hardest dessert because she’s know and the “dessert girl,” and she’s Tanya’s fiercest competitor.
Yes…everything is going according to plan, precious…
Gordie stops over and asks WannaHooch where the sponge is. She tells us she doesn’t even know what he MEANS by that. Then, she decides what he means is ladyfingers. Yikes.
TG gives us a quick reminder of what strawberry shortcake is, and that it’s the easiest of the three by far. Gordie asks who’s gonna struggle. Did you really have to ask. The answer, as it always is, and will always be, is…
Teddy tells them that he has a way of always making himself his own worst enemy. That’s what we’re calling it now?
And then, somehow, there’s a fire at WannaHooch’s station. Gordie asks WH how she set fire to a fucking trifle.
I think the more important question is…HOW DID YOU SET FIRE TO A METAL BOWL?!?
Gordie tells the other two judges that the trifle crowd is a “disaster.” They run through some of their concerns with the contestants, but…well…they’ll all be recapped in a minute, because time is up and it’s judgment time!!!
First group is is the tiramisu group. Felix is first, and her free-form tiramisu doesn’t look impressive. What’s worse is she added macadamia nuts to it. Bastage is sickened. Teddy is very disappointed. It’s basically the opposite of Felix. Teddy feels terrible telling her all these things. Gordie tells her it’s her worst dish.
Felix, this is what happens when you go and try to get too cute with your food. There are tears. Lots of tears.
