Either she’s getting a really sweet edit, or this woman is hyper-aware of how stuff gets pulled out of context, because even when she congratulates herself for having done something risky, she doesn’t find the need to declare herself better than everyone else. Maybe she figures actually winning challenges will do that for her? In any case, she is now in possession of immunity for the Elimination Challenge.
And what is their Elimination Challenge? Well, Scar says on the following day they’re going to be carted out to the Remlinger Farms Berry Festival (which sounds like a mighty Christmassy event if I’ve ever heard of one) and so they’ll be cooking with berries… in a head-to-head battle with another chef. Several of the chefs get very excited over this prospect, especially StacheBear, who tells us that he was a good wrestler who “placed” in Oklahoma State competition when he was in high school…
and actually took first in a Matthew Modine Lookalike Contest
He says this is totally going to be “like a wrestling match” for him. Minus the physical contact. And the sexy costumes. And the knee-pads. And the homoeroticism. But otherwise…
exactly like a cooking challenge
Since Top Model was the winner of the QuickFire, she’s cooking alone, but she can still win the Elimination Challenge. Then the top five chefs from the QuickFire (Stoner Sheldon, Rapunzel, ThumbyHead Stefan, Sir Barts-a-lot and… *snort*… Blowsie) get to choose their head-to-head opponent from the bottom five (StacheBear, Lizzie Borden, McBitchyson, Hater-Tots and Moley). Stoner gets to start, and he picks Moley, claiming he’s doing so because Moley is a “young gun” (he’s only 2 years younger than Stoner) and he wants a challenge… but I’m gonna call bullshit and say he picked him because he thinks he can easily beat him.
Rapunzel chooses StacheBear, ostensibly because she’s from Texas and Stachey’s from Oklahoma, and there is apparently some kind of sports rivalry between the two states (snooze) but I’m gonna call bullshit and say she picked him because they’re both gingers and she wants to bang him. Then ThumbyHead Stefan chooses Hater-Tots, declaring he’s going to “whip his ass”, and telling us he picked him because Hater is so damned old. I’m not calling bullshit there.
Then it’s Blowsie’s turn, and she decides to take on Lizzie Borden. Lizzie’s not worried at all, she tells us she’s got way more experience than Blowsie, and she’s cooked for Dismoond Tyutyu and Nilsin Mandila twoice, so Blowsie can suck it. And then this happens…
a very subtle version of “get the fuck off of me”
I’m sure Blowsie thinks that she’s being cutesy and rakishly adorable, but this right here is a perfect example of how she engenders a negative response in people. She’s not good friends with Lizzie, why would she think it was appropriate to get all handsy like that? Because badass rawkers (such as herself) are known (and allowed) to manhandle people against their will? That’s just annoying and stupid on her part, and it’s only going to get worse later on, as you all will soon see.
