Everyone gets to cooking. Janine says that "rabbit orgies are awesome." Whuh-huh? Why is she talking about rabbit orgies? Whitney explains that Hugh Acheson has been a mentor for her. Wait, isn't he a judge this season? How is that fair? Also, she says he brought her into the kitchen when she was very young, which just sounds inappropriate. I'm sure it's all aboveboard but any time a young women is taken in by an older man, it sounds weird.
Tom wanders around the kitchen to find out what people are doing. Is he going to send someone home right now, like he did last time? Chuy interviews that his mother used to cook rabbit a lot when he was growing up. Like they raised rabbits and then would eat them for dinner and tell his sister it was chicken. I hope they eventually told her the truth or she just got an ugly surprise. Chris Hollywood interviews that his style is similar to Blais and Michael Voltaggio. I'm sure he thinks he's just like Michael Voltaggio. We shall see. Ty-Lor has been all around the world. Is that where he picked up the umlaut? And the fake name. I hope his birth name is at least Tyler.
Janine explains that she's going to make a rack of rabbit, I guess? She doesn't seem to have much of a plan. In her interview, she explains that she lost her father and broke up with her partner of nine years this year, so being on the show would be something positive. She's also one of those people who doesn't open her mouth when she speaks, and swallows her words, which is going to bug me if she makes it on the show. Open your mouth! Stop mumbling! Edward is trying to use one of the machines but he's not familiar with the controls and he decides to skip it. Will that ruin his dish?
Tom walks up to Nina and basically tells her, "You have no experience and everyone else is an expert. So why are you here?" Um, wasn't she chosen to be there? It's not like she just wandered in off the street. TOM. Keith Who Looks Like Chef From South Park tells Tom that he cooks seafood mostly, right on the beach. Keith interviews that he made bad choices when he was younger and got caught selling drugs, and then went to jail. While he was in jail, he learned to cook. Wow. That is an actual success story from the penal system; you don't hear too many of those. Dakota thinks she has a leg up because she's going to put chocolate with rabbit, and no one else will do that.
Time winds down and everyone rushes to plate the food. Nina's lack of experience causes her to run out of time and the rabbit doesn't get on the plate. Just kidding! It has nothing to do with her lack of experience cooking and everything to do with her lack of experience cooking on this show, I think. Edward's last-minute switch up in cooking techniques means that he didn't have enough time to cook his rabbit, and he worries that it's undercooked. Mmm, raw rabbit. That sounds...disgusting, actually.
