The teams walk into the conference room. "David, you're smiling like a Cheshire [she pronounces it 'Sheshire'] cat -- do you know something I don't know?" Martha asks in severe tones. It's just gas. Internet David says that he knows they had a lot of fun and sold as much dressing as they could. Martha thinks it's nice to see him smiling. Martha turns to Primarius and asks about their dressing. After learning that Bethenny created it, Martha takes a little cruet, shakes it, and pours some of the dressing on lettuce leaves. Before tasting, she wants to know what's in it. Bethenny lists sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, honey, wasabi, peanut butter, white wine vinegar, olive oil, and ginger. Wow. That's a lot of strong flavors going on all at once -- I really wonder how any of them are going to be able to shine. If you're using sesame oil, I don't think the peanut butter is strictly necessary unless it's for texture more than taste, and what happened to the balsamic vinegar she insisted they were using in the test kitchen? And the lemons? Martha tastes, and likes, both dressings. "Well, Alexis, how do you think Primarius did?" Martha asks. "Well, I know how Primarius did," Alexis says. I love the slight stress she put on correcting her mother. Depths, people, depths. Alexis reports that Primarius sold three hundred and ninety-one bottles at three dollars and ninety-nine cents, and brought in fifteen hundred and sixty dollars and nine cents. Martha is impressed. Charles reports that Matchstick sold their dressing at three dollars and forty-nine cents, and they sold four hundred and fifty-three bottles for a total sale of fifteen hundred and eighty dollars and ninety-seven cents. Martha exclaims over the twenty-dollar difference. "Well, finally, you have two losers from the last Matchstick -- the original Matchstick -- and how did they do?" Martha asks. Heh. She called them losers. Ryan says that everything he heard about David and Marcela was completely untrue and that they were both great team players. Martha points out that Ryan chose Marcela last. "Well, I wanted to make sure I had another guy on my team for some grunt-work purposes," Ryan says. "Oh, I see," Martha responds. "But she can grunt pretty well, right?" "Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah!" Marcela answers. Okay, I think we're getting into a weird area. Martha congratulates them and says their reward is to sail on a schooner around Ellis Island.
