Having been forced to lay off of Andrea, Michelle Bernstein has a lot of pent up bitchiness at this point so she cuts off Kenny's speech. She reminds Kenny that although she just got here, she has taste buds and she hated his dish. If she was going to list all the things she hated about the dish they would be in the Room of Judgment all day, all night, and probably into next week. Kenny blinks once, then twice. This does not compute.
Padma sends them out to stew some more. Once Kenny leaves the room, Tom starts wretching at the thought of ever eating Kenny's puree again. Gail reminds him that Tamesha's flavors staged a civil war on the plate and no one wants to have a battle in their mouth. It's just unseemly. Tamesha feels certain that she is getting sent home, while Kenny seems content to stew and plot Angelo's death by braising. It's a very The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and her Lover sort of way to go. He's going to poach him in olive oil and serve him with a cauliflower puree! The judges pull the losers back in and announce that it is Tamesha's time to go. She looks downtrodden but Colicchio was pretty nice about it and thinks that she could re-work this dish into something delicious. Probably. Maybe. Tamesha lets her potty mouth shine and blames her departure on a minor mistake. Tiffany blames Angelo for Tamesha's departure. And then Tamesha blames Angelo, too, but less so. She's still proud of herself.
Stay tuned for next week when Kenny goes off his meds and knifes Stephen!
