My prayer for the day: Please, my dear Lord (and by “my Lord” I mean Satan), please, please, let today be the day when Lorena gets kicked to the curb. If you are as powerful as you say you are SATAN, you will make this happen!!!!!!!!!
Thank God this sh*t is almost over. Even I can only be expected to remain hot for only so long
Curtis is, as always, awaiting the arrival of the Chefs in the kitchen. The stations are split so we know it’s “the mystery guest” challenge. Chris says to Curtis “You are an evil man.” Curtis welcomes the Chef to their Mystery Guest Challenge! We are treated to a flashback of Naomi Pomeroy verbally abusing her own father, through the wall, to, nearly, the point of tears.
Mystery Guest are Showgirls, right?
The Chef and the mystery guest have to create the same dish. Each station has a duplicate set of equipment and ingredients. The Chef must instruct the guest – through a wall- on what to do, how to prep the dish, how to make it, and how to plate the dish. If the chef doesn’t communicate it… the guest doesn’t do it. They have 20 minutes to cook their dish, whilst instructing their mystery guest on how to create the same dish. They will be judged on how similarly the two dishes look, taste and what is the best dish. Stone Cold Fox will be judging the dishes. The winner will receive $5,000 for their charity.
Are the Chefs ready to “meet” their mystery guests? The Chefs put on blindfolds while the mystery guests walk in.
This biggest mystery for me is why Lorena is still on this show
The mystery guests are: Ruth Reichl who is dressed like Pat Benetar circa 1983, James Oseland who is, again, in a red wool sweater, and Francis Lam, who is, as always, adorable. He does, however, to me, always look like he doesn’t know where he is. I know it’s just his look… but it amuses me nonetheless. Side note on Pee Wee Oseland- seriously dude, it’s Las Vegas. Most likely, at no point during the calendar year, do you need a wool sweater during the day. And to my knowledge this isn’t Top Chef Masters Graveyard Edition, so your sweater wardrobe doesn’t really fly with me. Maybe he could get a “cardigan t shirt” like the “tuxedo t shirt” from the 80’s? Why am I b*tching, there are two episodes left. FOCUS MisRed!!!
The pairings are:
Ruth with Kerry
James with Chris
Francis with Lorena
The first thing the Chefs need to do is access their mystery guest’s skill level. The first thing the mystery guest does is put on some type of wacky voice. James does his best “Art Smith” imitation. Ruth decides to channel a SS Officer. Francis… not sure what voice he does.
Kerry blurts out “Can you cook?” Chris asks “Do you know how to clean shrimp?” Lorena asks “Can you chop cilantro?”
What is she DOING over there?
