Time’s up! Ponytail is not happy with his dish, and neither is Huda. She’s on the verge of tears again, I’d make fun of her for that but if I was in this competition I’d be blubbering the whole time. This bitch DOES NOT handle stress well, I’m a crier. Diane of COURSE thinks her shit doesn’t stink (it does), Uno is confident and most everyone is confident. Renatta is cool cucumber and is basically gliding through this whole thing just soaking in the atmosphere and making me hungry.
Jeff’s braised ribs are a hit, and Nigella wants another bite, Sarah’s shrimp and grits are liked by everyone but Nigella and Ludo snaps at her for disliking it! Very funny. Don’t disagree with the Ludo! Micah’s mediterranean Israeli chicken is confusing, Nigella says, “I dont know what that is!”
Gregg the sexy spoonful is disappointed, the judges are not ecstatic about his chicken and dumplings. Which honestly, they don’t look like traditional chicken and dumplings, so perhaps that’s where the miss was?
Lauren’s next and it is NOT a favorite either, apparently she smothered that shepherd’s pie in cheese (what’s wrong with that, I say!).
Diane, Miss Congeniality is up, and everyone likes it except for Malarkey. Nigella really liked it and wants another bite. Diane responds to the criticism classily and tastefully and absorbs the constructive criticism. . .
Who am I kidding? She flicks off Malarkey behind his back because she’s awful. I like Uno’s expression here, I’d like to think she is full of ennui and over Diane’s antics. Or she’s falling asleep.
Erika the pink nightmare has a yummy spoonful that everyone seems pleased with, and Shawn is up with his west indian curry chicken and dumplings. He thinks the judges are uneducated and don’t understand the difference between curry and west indian curry, but Nigella delivers the ultimate burn and says it needs more salt. Ha! Shoulda listened to sexy spoonful, Shawn. Tony agrees. Shawn thinks the judges don’t understand his heritage but the issue here isn’t “heritage,” it’s taste.
Khristianne’s dish is very popular with all the judges despite the fact that she’s nervous. Ludo points out that it’s not “comfort food,” but depending on where you are from, I think it could be (as Malarkey points out). Tony says it makes him want to order a very expensive bottle of wine and crash a ferrari. Hee!
Ponytail’s fried chicken is OK, it doesn’t impress but they don’t outright hate it, same with Uno’s dish. Ginger Paul’s dish is a halibut dish, and I don’t really get if the judges like it or not. It’s not very clear however Nigella calls it a children’s nursery dish, and that in Britain they don’t have the American rule of “no alcohol for children,” and I giggle imagining them giving toddlers steins of beer before naptime. A bunch of hooligan 3 year olds raging on the playground, etc.
