I REALLY wanted Angelo/Tracey’s sandwich. OK, I really wanted all of them - but the winning one looked the best. I swear watching this show late at night is not a good idea - it makes you want to get up and eat a huge meal right before you go to bed. The aprons were hilarious. At least nobody argued over which member of the team got to wear which color. I could just see someone whining “I’m not a red-stater! No way I’m wearing the red side!” If they did whine, it wasn’t shown, which is good.
On to elimination! Ah, cheap school lunches. Yum. I remember my elementary lunches being disgusting, and my high school lunches basically consisting of a salad/potato bar combo that was pretty good. Middle school was mostly frozen chimichangas, if I recall correctly. I was really glad that they didn’t have that $2.60 budget at Whole Foods. That would have been seriously undoable.
Would YOU have eaten a pickled onion on pork tacos with oat tortillas when you were in 7th grade? I would NOT. But I think most of them thought it was a radish. I have to say, kudos to the editors on this one. All that bickering on that team (She’s taking all the credit! I did a lot of troubleshooting, wah wah wah) typically means the team will fall apart, and end up on the chopping block. When Arnold said “the judges will say ‘Arnold made a salsa. Big whoop.’ I thought that was exactly what the judges would say, and I was waiting for the ax to fall. I was chanting “loser edit” in my mind. That changed when they ate the food, when it became really clear it was the sherry chicken or banana pudding that stood out, and not in a good way. Methinks Arnold is not so much the team player. Really defensive. But then, maybe I would be in that situation, too.
And Angelo, sabotaging his team! He’s definitely trying to oust Kenny. If it gets really mean, I won’t like this rivalry anymore, but I don’t think there’s much of a question that he was using his immunity to send Kenny PYKAG. So much for wanting to win every challenge - he was not trying to win this one. Celery and peanut butter is not a winning dish, and he didn’t care. He wanted to be there on the bottom, and admitted as much when he couldn’t answer Tom’s question about it. Every other chef in the past has always been “I always try my best, whether I have immunity or not.” A far cry from “I can’t answer that question.” Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky.
Bottom dishes - I’m sorry - WHAT? Sherry jus for middle schoolers? On a budget of $2.60?? No wonder they couldn’t afford chocolate, and why the chocolate was sacrificed instead of the sherry……grrr. At Restaurant Depot, when they were so over budget, they should have ditched the sherry, changed the menu a bit, and kept the chocolate. Dark chocolate has like 10 times the antioxidants of blueberries, they could have made a case for the healthiness of it - it’s much better than sugar, anyway. I don’t know why Jacqueline was so quick to take out the chocolate, but it wasn’t too clear, maybe she fought harder, they didn’t show much of that little scene. But coming out of there knowing all you have is bananas, sugar, and milk for your dessert – NOT good. Jus can be made with other things than sherry, it’s not like sherry is super healthy even with the alcohol cooked out. Nor did it look (or taste, apparently) appetizing. They both deserved to leave, really, but I guess Jacqueline’s pudding was worse.
So that means I was correct in guessing who went home! I don’t know if that’s ever happened before this early in the game.
Top 3: Kenny, Angelo, and oh, let’s say….Tamesha.
Next to go: Amanda (she of the sherry jus)
