Hola Gasmii and welcome to the fun filled recap of The Taste!
Before we get started, I’d like to give a shout out to Jennaboa for identifying the “Pink Nightmare” reference! Thanks girlie! Also, feel free to catch up on last week’s recap here if you haven’t already done so. So let’s do this thing!
Truth be told, this show is kind of mild, there’s no screaming or yelling and even our “villains” are not horrible people. Annoying to work with maybe, but not the Machiavellan douches we’re used to seeing on Top Chef or Survivor or anything. However, I am enjoying it because I do like the way the food is judged with a blind taste test. The outcomes are often surprising, for the judges and the competitors. I stand by my previous comments that the eliminations are missing a “do or die” element. They need to have a “Cook for YOUR LIFE” segment, and THAT should determine who goes at the end. Right? Oh well, in the meantime we have this to deal with – and FEISTY LUDO! Seriously, he is off the chain with the jibberish this episode. I keep having to rewind.
Okay, so we begin with two more contestants gone, and now Nigella is down to two contestants (Huda & Lauren), Malarkey has three (Jeff, Khristianne and Pony), Ludo has three (Sarah, Humble Gregg and Ginger Paul) and Tony remains intact (that sounds filthy to me) with his four ladies (Mia, Diane, Uno and Ninamarie). At the beginning of this episode I told my husband that Tony loses a lady and so does Nigella. Hmmmmm, was I right? Let’s see!
Welcome contestants! Today, Tony will drink too much, Malarkey will wear a stupid bowtie that is WAY TOO BIG, Nigella will sing a lullaby, and Ludo will PUNCH YOU IN ZEE FACE!
So this week’s Team Challenge is THE SANDWICH! Joey Tribiani and I are very excited about this challenge. It’s the same dealio, with each contestant making a sandwich, the team choosing one from their team to represent them and the winner gets immunity.
Our guest judges, no idea who they are.
You must choose to make a club sandwich, PB&J, or a salad sandwich.
Malarkey must be on some crazy pills today, because he is NOT STOPPING dancing around. It must be the shorty pants.
And someone please tell me what is UP with his shorty pants? He looks like a character from an Archie Comic. I am tempted to just call him Jughead from how on.
He starts bopping around from cook to cook, then starts screaming at Gregg that he’s coming for him. Dude, that playdo face frightens me!
Hey kids, wanna go for a ride in my Jalopy?
Jeff is really confident in his team’s ability to win, he’s pleased with Khristianne’s dish and Ponytail’s dish and thinks that they have what it takes. Interesting, no snarky comments, Tattoo? Come on! How about you talk shit about Ponytail? No?
