La Toya's chef is teaching her to cook, and she explains to us that she grew up with a personal chef, "and I still have one, of course. So I've never done a burger -- the flipping and that whole bit. But I have done an egg. Tee hee." Well, flipping an egg is harder than a burger, so she should have this locked in. Is it shocking to anyone else that a woman at that age has never flipped a burger? Oh, wait, it is also shocking to Nene, who's watching in awe and wondering if La Toya's for real. This is America, after all, and everyone should know how to cook a burger. I think that's on the citizenship test, in fact.
Meat Loaf's also learning how to cook, wishing someone would join him and help but no one does. Rich, Busey, and Lil Jon are all sitting at a table goofing off while Meat Loaf works. Meat Loaf is not even a little bit happy about it, especially since Lil Jon hasn't been given anything to do (perhaps part of the saboteur's strategy?). ASAP. Star says she created her team's brand messaging and menus as well as some Omaha Steaks aprons. She spends way too long holding an Omaha Steaks logo up in front of a chef's crotch to ask which way Hope wants to orient the logo on the apron. After a lot of giggling, she chooses sideways, which is odd.
Backbone. Ivanka shows up, and Meat Loaf tells her he doesn't know how to cook, but he's the cook. Lil Jon asks her to save him. Then she talks to Busey, who tells her that Meat Loaf won't look at him, and that the Jo(h)ns are both working on the menu. ASAP. Nene's going to cook the lobster meal, and Marlee's going to host that segment. Marlee says they're going to kick ass. Nene's about to go to the store, so everyone gives her a list of things to pick up. Star wants her to go pick up the aprons. Nene thinks it's unfair that they should have to run errands since Star doesn't do anything but graphics all day and they have to practice cooking. While they're gone, Don shows up to check in on them. Star tells her everything, because Hope can't even remember what the tagline is (which Star also came up with, of course). Don says Star's always the one to tell him what's up, which is fine, except if they lose she'll eventually be held accountable.
