Felix is with WH. Damn, I thought I may have been on to something. That means Stacy gets DareDevil.
This is the first ever MasterChef tag team match. The rules are simple. Each team makes one dish, but they don’t cook at the same time. The JUDGES determine when the tags happen. Great, so just another annoying opportunity for them to have too much impact on who wins the challenge. The teams get to decide who goes first.
In an interesting move, Becky hands the reins to BR.
Gordie stops by and asks WH how well she knows Japanese cuisine. She says about 1 out of 10. Ouch. He asks Felix how SHE’S feeling, and she’s positive. He asks her, should they lose, who’s going home. She’s not slow to dump her teammate under the bus.
Oh, ok, it turns out that they’re switching on the 15 minute mark. That was poorly dictated to us.
Becky and BR are already butting heads. She throws out his veggies because he soaked them and she doesn’t think you’re supposed to soak them. He then tells her to start soaking the nori, and she tells him that you’re not supposed to (yeah, I’m with her on that).
Bastage tells the other judges that Frank’s plan is working, because BR is going to bring her down. Meanwhile Frankie is doing a little happy/gotta pee dance on the balcony. Becky is basically just doing her own thing and redoing half of BR’s work. BR forgot to season the fucking rice, and shit is getting real in a hurry.
Yeah, it’s like real intense and all.
People are running around and screaming. WH is cheering on Felix like a good little clueless teammate, while BR is yelling at Becky to use the fish he cut (that is totally destroyed according to Gordie earlier). TG tells us that BR may be driving this bus, but he’s driving it off the cliff.
IT’S INTENSE. Becky and Stacy are apparently starting to make their roll in the last 30 seconds. There’s no way Stacy gets hers…I’m not sure Becky did either. BR tells us that if their dish came to him at a sushi bar, he’d send it back. Yeah, likely so.
So, Felix is straight BAWSE at this challenge. I’m completely not surprised, and it’s not entirely because she’s asian. It’s more the fact that she’s cooked a good bit of asian food. Because I’m not racist, y’all. They crushed this competition. This is why I’d have put WH with literally anyone else.
Next called is team Beckyful Rhinoceros.
When they caption it for me, I am of very little value.
Funny that BR is asking her to not throw him under the bus. Or is he telling her? Becky tells us she wants to win this more than anyone else…so if they were to ask her which one of them should go home, she’s not gonna hold back. Honestly, I’m pretty sure we’d all do the same. Honestly it’s kind of a dick move for BR to ask her to not rat him out for the shit he did wrong. It’s like he’s saying “I know I probably fucked the team and all, but it’d be totally unfair if the judges KNEW that…”
