As we pan the clapping studio audience, we see "Bethenny's friends" and "Dawna's family." One of "Bethenny's friends" appears to be eight years old, and Dawna has a sister who could very well be her identical (im)Clone.
Back in the Martha studio, I am getting heartily sick of Annie Lennox. Martha flubs her way through lines and timing and also introduces the finalists' teammates for the last task. Sarah is wearing some sort of purple sequined shrug over a black dress, which I guess makes sense if there's a party afterwards, but Carrie's faux business suit is the outfit that really grabs you. It's a long skirt and tailored jacket in pinstripe, but here's the thing -- the pinstripes are all shimmery! She's like a stripper businesswoman or something.
Martha next introduces us to some never-before-seen footage of the two finalists. She describes Bethenny as, "creative, extremely passionate, and an entrepreneur with lots of potential." Cut to New York footage of Bethenny unsmilingly walking through a farmer's market, picking out parsnips and carrots (which means this had to be filmed in the winter) and grabbing other things while curtly telling farmers, "See you next week." Bethenny confessionals that the interview process has taught her that she is manic and can be a little chaotic, but she is also always a fighter. In her kitchen, we watch Bethenny chop an unpeeled parsnip while she also "talks" on a phone about getting some business. Now, I know there are certain chefs out there who don't peel root vegetables before cooking with them because they have this wild idea that the unpeeled part provides extra flavor. However, other than dirt, I have no earthly clue what that extra flavor is. Bethenny also (rather ostentatiously, I think) washes an entire tree of Brussels sprouts. I've seen those trees at the farmer's market and yes, they look all impressive and so fresh because the sprouts aren't even picked off yet, but honestly? They are a pain in the ass to get home in your market sack and are really there for showoffs to buy. When restaurant chefs use them, they get delivered right to the restaurant. Bethenny goes on and on about herself, why she should get the job, and how great she would be in the company.
Back in the applauding-except-for-awesome-Chuck studio, Martha calls Bethenny out. Bethenny and her black business-suit cleavage come strutting out and sit down in a chair as Martha turns to tell us about Dawna. Martha flubs her teleprompt feed: "She is an experienced businesswoman a former athlete. Who knows how to win and she knows how to run a business."
