Team Orange originally planned to send Marcel up second (so I guess they did have a predetermined order, though it was never mentioned), but Dale says that his food isn't going to last another round, and he needs to serve immediately. Marcel is all pissy about it, since he had already started plating, but no one cares, because it's Marcel and he's pissy about 85% of the time. Team Yellow is in disarray, and Angelo suggests that they send up a strong dish to try to build momentum. Had they ever discussed whom to send second? Anyway, Tiffani says that she'll go, and since no one else appears to have a plan, she goes. Dale serves edamame dumpling with carrot froth and crispy soy nuts, and Tiffani serves sashimi of black bass, avocado, and ponzu vinaigrette. Tom comments that they are two strong dishes again, so I guess Casey's food was better than we heard. Gail likes the lightness of Tiffani's food, and gives her the win. Padma chooses Dale's food, although we don't know why, but Tom and Tony give it to Tiffani and they win. The score is now tied 15-15 (they are doing tennis-style scoring).
There doesn't appear to be much discussion over at Yellow at this point, as Angelo decides to go next and no one argues, and Orange is sending Marcel since he was supposed to go earlier. Marcel serves cauliflower couscous with pomegranate seeds, golden raisins, and yellowfin tuna versus Angelo, who serves smoked tuna, yuzu gelee, red onion, and capers. Taylor Dent likes both dishes. Some judge he turned out to be. Tom felt he couldn't taste the tuna in Marcel's, so he gives Angelo the point. Tony and Gail both agree (although they don't explain why), and Angelo wins the point. So Yellow is up 30-15. Angelo and Tre do a giant flying chest bump that actually knocks Tre to the ground. Marcel pouts back to his team and bitches in an interview that Angelo always plates on a spoon. And you always do some weird foam, dude. We all have our quirks. Wait, why am I defending Angelo? Ugh. These two are the worst.
Team Yellow is scrambling, trying to decide who should go next. They need two more points for the win and they have four people who have not yet served their food: Tiffany, Tre, Spike, and of course, Jamie. They check out the other end of the court and determine that Blais is plating. But then they tell Padma that they're sending Antonia up, so Tiffany quickly decides to go up. I seriously do no understand their strategy, if they even had one. They should have just frontloaded with their strongest chefs/dishes and tried to win the first five rounds, period. Tiffany starts plating and everyone is helping her, especially Angelo. Tiffany interviews that Angelo needs to keep his hands to himself. I think he just gets excited and overenthusiastic. Antonia serves diver sea scallop, Indian lentil puree, mint, dandelion greens, cilantro, and chives versus Tiffany's spiced tuna with fennel, peppercorns, coriander seeds, and lentil salad. Tony gives the point to Tiffany. Gail and Taylor give it to Antonia. Padma goes with Tiffany, so Tom has to break the tie, and he gives it to Antonia. The two teams can't hear what happens during judging so they have to wait for a reaction from the chefs, and when they don't get one, someone yells out, "Who won?" Antonia whirls triumphantly and yells, "I DID!" Ha. She runs back to her team and gets big hugs. The score is tied, 30-30.
