Grayson says that Pee-wee claimed that he wanted to eat healthy but he liked "a little spice" so she tried to accomplish that. Gail has nothing but kind words for the squash, both how it was cooked and the flavors. But Gail has questions about the chicken. Grayson says that she took the skin off to make it healthier. Gail points out that she then stuffed it with egg and cheese and topped it with bacon. Yeah, that's not making it healthier. That was dumb. Tom thought that all of the ingredients worked well together, and then there were suddenly tomatoes. Were they just raw tomatoes? Because that does seem weird. Pee-wee points out that her portion sizes were giant, which is a problem that Grayson has had throughout.
Sarah says that she appreciated the absurdity of the challenge. That's a nice way to say that it was ridiculous. Padma compliments how well-seasoned her food was, and Sarah says that the kitchen she used didn't have the spices she was used to, so she's glad to hear it worked out. Tom thinks the eggs were perfectly cooked, but they were underseasoned. Sarah seems surprised to hear that. Gail thinks they could have used a sprinkle of coarse salt.
Tom shares a story with Lindsay about how the first food he ever cooked on his own was stuffed zucchini. Cool story, Tom. Pee-wee liked the "little boat" effect. Gail thought it was delicious, but thought the salad was a bit overdressed and it caused the greens to wilt a little. Lindsay explains that all she had at the kitchen she chose was a giant bag of mixed greens, so she tried to pick out the spinach and other delicate greens, but obviously didn't fully succeed.
Okay, so now that we've heard from everyone, it's time to hear who won. It's Paul, right? Seems like his dish had the fewest criticisms. And the winner is...Lindsay! What? With the wilted greens? Then again, Gail was the only person who seemed to have a problem with that. Lindsay reminds us that this is her first individual win, and she's glad she got at least one before the finals. Padma says that Paul is also safe, but Ed, Grayson, and Sarah are the bottom three. The cheftestants are excused.
Gail thinks that all five chefs are really great, and it's a shame to let one of them go. I hope this isn't a precursor to one of those lame non-elimination eliminations. Pee-wee jokes that all of the dishes needed ketchup. Ha ha, not. That is useful. Stop talking, Pee-wee. I like you. I have fond memories of your show and movies. I think you got a raw deal in the public masturbation case. But stop sullying my food shows with your jokes. It's a bad fit. Anyway, Padma says that she loved Sarah's vegetables and eggs, but they lacked seasoning. Gail notes that seasoning is really critical at this stage in the competition because no one is making huge mistakes. It comes down to the details.
