So the next day, the Red Team troops in and gets handed a set of black aprons. Because they're marked for death, you see. They'll be competing against one another in a good old-fashioned taste test. Graham has whipped up a dish, and, one-by-one, members of the disgraced red team will have to name the ingredients Graham used. Once they guess wrong, they can't guess any more. Whoever names the fewest amount of ingredients will be dispatched to the happy hunting ground. "Graham could have prepared a beef bourguignon or something I don't even know how to pronounce," Whitney frets. Yes -- like bourguignon.
Anyhow, Whitney needn't have worried. It's chili, and she gets to go first, while the rest of the Red Team cools their heels in the MasterChef restaurant, which sounds much fancier than "windowless, soundproof vault." Whitney is apparently something of a chili savant, as she's able to rattle off a dozen ingredients -- onions, celery, green bell peppers, tomatoes, beans, jalapeño peppers, beef, garlic, beef stock, salt, cilantro, oil -- before incorrectly guessing on chili powder. Oh, you foolish 22-year-old -- surely, Graham grounds up his own chilies that he personally has brought in from Oaxaca on an ox cart. Anyhow, she sets the bar at 12, which seems like a formidable score.
And it is. Faruq's next, and he comes up with celery, onions, bell pepper, tomatoes, beans, beef, jalapeño, salt, and garlic before stumbling on a question that has dogged man since the dawn of time -- parsley or cilantro? He chooses parsley. He chooses foolishly. The low score is now 9 ingredients, and Whitney lives to fight another day.
Jenna's up now. You would figure, what with her being a homemaker from Texas, that she'd know a thing or two about chili. And she does -- right up until the point where she guesses that Graham's dish contains chili powder. Unfortunately, for her, she was only able to name seven things before being tripped up by chili powder. Faruq gives up his position in the hot seat for Jenna.
It's Slim's turn, and she doesn't like chili. Not one bit. "Maybe it's time to start," Joe suggests, not at all helpfully. She's able to pick out seven ingredients before stalling on what kind of meat Graham used. Beef or pork? Pork or beef? We know it's beef, of course, and -- after stringing us along through a commercial break, Slim figures it out, too. Jenna remains in the firing line.
