Gasmii! Man, this one had me on the edge of my seat. First of all, the Quickfire had our noble contestants cooking insects, which I found fascinating in a car accident/I want to vomit but I can’t look away sort of way. Hughnibrow stepped up for the win with some fried crickets, and Suvir served a salad and a jar of live worms because he’s Hindu and can’t take even the creepy crawliest of lives. You can file that under, “Things That Suck About Being Hindu.”
For the Elimination Challenge, Stonecoldfox informs the chefs that their task is to prepare a charity dinner, with each chef responsible for a course. That’s it. No other restrictions. Traci of the Gardens wisely surmises that when shit seems this easy, it’s probably too good to be true. She’s right. In one of the most uncreative devices ever, the producers just throw random curveballs at the chefs throughout the three-hour prep time (no running water, no servers, etc.). It’s all pretty uninteresting. What really gets me going is how fucking awful this situation allows Naomi to be. She steps up to be the bossy, patronizing b****- leader, and rubs everyone the wrong way, including the nicest people there, Hugh and Mary Sue.
As per usual, the diners generally love all the food, and the judges find a little something wrong with everything. Suvir’s dish was delicious, but too much in his comfort zone. Naomi’s soup is unexpectedly flavorful, but too thick. Ironically, it’s Naomi and Suvir who get the most votes by far from the diners, and the critics give Naomi the win. Which pisses me off heartily, especially when I learn that her charity mails seeds to people. Pfft.
In the end, and a total twist, John Currence was sent home! He made a perfect risotto, but he didn’t “stretch” enough. Total bullshit. Total. Bullshit. But a good episode.
Tune in for the recap on Monday, in which we’ll explore the best method to cook scorpions – grilling vs. deep frying.
