So, a quick recap of the previous episode. The previous 8 banished cooks got a chance at redemption, Josh and the Flava Elevata had a mano y mano for the one second chance, and Josh got back in. Also, I learned that some people are apparently very much against Firefly. It was a Godless episode.
This week proves to be just as frightening. I mean, really, it’s just sheer, abject horror. This must be what Dan Cathy would feel like if a gay couple got married in a Chick-Fil-A on a Sunday!!!
This episode ALSO starts off with a mystery box challenge. Is that three episodes in a row, now? It’s like they don’t even WANT an Emmy for writing…
Yet again, there’s the “be very, very careful lifting your mystery box today…because it’s alive. DareDevil reminds us that this puts her at a disadvantage. WH reminds us that she doesn’t like killing things (think back to the uni).
They open up the box, and inside is an aquarium of live prawns. Firstly, is it really necessary that they’re alive? Secondly, *yawn*. I’m getting a bit sick of gorram seafood in the mystery box. This is the THIRD seafood mystery box. Out of like 6 challenges. Can we get something new and exciting? We haven’t had an actually baking mystery box this year, what happened to that? Or even an actual baking challenge (outside of the pressure tests). The cupcake challenge in season one was still one of the better ones, I thought.
Teddy tells them they can use these for anything, especially anything they’d use shrimp for…prawns would just sexy it up. So off to the (limited) pantry run the minichefs to decide what the fuck they’re going to do to make prawns less interesting…and less ugly. Man, I never thought I’d say “I wish AAliens was still around,” but boy howdy, I do…
The judges talk, as they so often do, and Teddy tells the others he’d keep it nice and simple, while Bastage tells them he’d cook these things three ways, with a different side for each…or the opposite of “simple.” Isn’t Bastage usually the one who yells at people for not keeping shit simple?
They stop by BR, who tells them that he’s not real thrilled that Josh is back in there, because it means he’s gonna have to step up his game a bit. So, he’s using the prawns to make a ceviche. Teddy tells him that it could be really good.
Gordie stops over by WH’s station to see how she’s doing, and she’s yet to get a prawn out of the water.
