So after last week’s, uh, interesting outcome, I was dying to see who would go next … and also a little nervous. All spoilers about winners and eliminated contestants are in the comments.
1. Sushi. Drool.
Sushi sounds like a fairly specialized skill, so I was surprised to see it get a turn as a Quickfire challenge. But this challenge definitely got me hungry for a meal at our favorite sushi restaurant.
Quick note: Josh, just because Sheldon cooks Asian food, that doesn’t mean he’s a “sushi master.” Good god.
2. Fried chicken challenge
I know this makes me a huge weirdo, but fried chicken isn’t something I really crave. I think too much of the fried chicken I’ve had is crummy KFC-style stuff that makes me nauseous with its grease. (I haven’t had KFC since I was 13. It gave me a horrible stomachache and pretty much put me off KFC for life.) I’ve only loved fried chicken when I’ve had it at high-end restaurants (I know, I know, there’s something wrong with me).
I’m not sure if it was my fried chicken indifference, but I didn’t love this challenge. It just seemed … monotonous. Everyone was making chicken fried in a deep fryer. Yawn.
3. Very well, Stefan. You may stay.
Stefan’s crack about 365 bottles of Terlato wine lasting him three months made me laugh out loud. I am also very proud that I translated “Ich gehe nach hause” before Stefan did it for us. (This is the extent of my German.)
