Well, let’s find out what today’s QuickFire Challenge is and see if we can’t get Blowsie started on her new career path. Scar gestures to the world map behind her and Da Cow and says there are 17 different kinds of dumplings listed from all over the world…
sadly, the U.S. is ignored in the larger context, just like in real life
HA, so nobody gets to do dumplings of the ‘chicken-and-’ kind! Instead, each chef will get to choose one of the 17 varieties and have an hour to make an authentic version of whatever African or Russian or Antarctican dumpling they’re stuck with. Da Cow tells them she’s excited to see what they can make using a wrapper, a stuffing and a sauce, which sounds way dirtier than I think she meant it to.
Now, some of these dumplings originate from hideously underdeveloped countries where they have never even heard of such a thing as an iPad or a 1080p HD Flat-Screen TV (which means they are barbaric in the sense that they would not have the chance to trample each other on a random Friday in November in order to get their hands on one) but Scar tells the chefs there’s no need to panic, they will be able to research the foreign dumplings by using an internet-connected tablet that rhymes with Spindle Wire (I still refuse to help promote sponsored brands in these here recaps). At first I wondered why Scar used the word “panic”, but then I got a good lock at Eleyeza’s stricken face…
oh, wait, that’s just how she looks, never mind
They get to use the Spindle Wire tablets for five whole minutes… and today’s winner gets immunity and the chance to fuck up everything for everyone else if they wind up in a team-based Elimination Challenge. With that, their time starts, Scar and Da Cow leap out of the way…
and everybody acts like they’re at Wal-Mart
UniBall has the advantage here and appears to grab his first choice. The rest of the knives are quickly plucked from the map leaving Moley Micah stuck with a dumpling called manti from Kazakhstan, which he thought was an imaginary country…
to be fair, this movie did not help
Moley reminds us that he became an Executive Chef at the age of 21 (calling into serious question the judgment of his employer) which means he’s used to having to learn how to cook every kind of cuisine. Once he finds out that manti are made with lamb and beef, he tells us that it is jogging the “Middle Eastern file” in the back of his head…
which probably looks exactly like this
