Okay, so our sandwiches are Khristianne, Gregg, Huda and Diane. They love Khristianne’s sammich, and they like Gregg’s untoasted bread and the taste of the tuna, Huda’s they deem bland and too acidic (which Niella rightly calls out) and Diane’s is too wet. Hee hee!
So who’s the winner? GREGG! And everyone is PISSED! Sour grapes, I say. Just start cooking better, people. Show him up. Stop whining.
The individual challenge is a Sandwich challenge – just make the best sandwich you can. That’s it, should be easy right? Wrong. Watch how wonderfully everyone messes this up.
So Gregg is doing a Naan, and the judges are giving him very good instruction and he’s actually listening. Imagine that? Sarah has decided to make a fried oyster taco, and the guest judge is like “I applaud your creativeness,” which is code for, “you are sooooo effed.”
So while the chefs are cooking, we get some great behind the scenes of the mentors hanging out, drinking beer and talking shit about the contestants.
They don’t want to see an openfaced sandwich, apparently Khristianne does NOT work near the boys on her team (I think we all caught that from the beginning, amiright) and cooks on her side of the kitchen, all of the judges really like her cooking and are looking forward to seeing what she’s going to bring to the table.
Khristianne describes her sandwich and I friggin start drooling. One word: Chicharrones. This latina is in deep passionate love with chicharrones. Good call, Khristianne. Especially because if you consider she’s also adding some chicken liver mousse, so the chicharrones would give it a nice crunch and contrast in texture. Nom nom nom.
Ponytail says he’s making a “Cubano” sandwich and man, his pronunciation is just horrible and it makes me giggle. It’s called a simple Cuban sandwich, there’s no such thing as a “Cubano.” A “Cubano” is a person, dumbass. And that would be very gross and illegal. But would it make this contest more interesting? That is the final frontier in reality TV folks: Cannibalism.
Theres’ a lot of talk from from the competitors about not having the time to make bread and only one contestant is trying to make it and that is Mia on Tony’s team. Uno is making a steamed bun, but is using premade dough because she doesnt have the time to let it sit or rise, and Diane is using a ciabbatta bread?
Lauren cracks me up when she says she knows Tony loves ethnic food, so she’s making an armenian sandwich. I am so intrigued as to how this is going to turn out. Hrmmmmmm. Cooking to one particular judge’s tastes is NOT a bad move.
