Stephanie's dish has to go up against both Blais and Antonia. She made veal scallopini with tapenade and poached egg. Too bad Bourdain isn't a judge; we know he loves a runny egg. I don't know about veal and eggs, though. That seems a little weird. Antonia made roasted veal, leek and almonds puree with sautéed mushrooms, arugula, and raisins. Colicchio says that Antonia's veal is tough, but Stephanie's dish has too much going on. He doesn't really want to vote for either dish, but he picks Antonia. Ripert doesn't like the egg on the veal, but Antonia's dish was dry, so he picks Stephanie. Padma also picks Stephanie, so she wins, and she laughs that she won with a crappy dish. So the bar is lowered for Blais. He made seared veal loin and braised veal cap with raisins, carrots, potatoes, and mushrooms. Ripert likes the balanced flavors and Colicchio says that he's the hands-down winner. Blais thinks he has an "intimidation factor" after winning. Calm down there, Hulkster. You beat a crappy dish. That's not very intimidating.
And finally, we have Mike vs. Michael. I kind of forgot how Padma talked to Michael Voltaggio like she wanted to rip his clothes off. She really has a crush on him, no? Voltaggio made duck breast with duck leg in bacon vinaigrette, and burnt leek and coffee pesto. That sounds...kind of terrible. Why would I want to eat something burnt? It looks like some meat in a pile of cat puke. Isabella made cashew dusted spiced duck breast with duck leg and mushroom jus. Seems simple but could be tasty. Padma chooses Voltaggio. Shocker! Ripert thought Voltaggio's dish was complex but he liked Isabella's dish better. Tie! Tie! Tom is the tie-breaker. He says that both dishes were good, but he thought Isabella handled the duck better. Holy crap! He won! Even Mike Isabella is shocked. Blais is impressed with the win and also looks more worried than usual. The All-Stars all say goodbye to the winners. I can't believe they flew those winners there for a Quickfire. I bet they'll be back at some point, no? We'll see.
Elimination Challenge: the cheftestants have to cook dinner for Bahamian royalty. Tiffany cannot say the word royalty - she pronounces it "roll-tee." Anyway, the cheftestants have the impression that they'll be cooking at some sort of fancy State dinner. They head off to their suite and we watch an infomercial for their hotel for a few minutes. Carla and Tiffany are roommates, and Tiffany mentions how badly it would suck to come to the Bahamas and only get to do one challenge. Blais talks about the research he has done about the Bahamas; he's cooked every fish he thought might live in the oceans around the island, and he's ready to hunt down a goat, kill it, and cook it, if need be. See, that kind of research doesn't bother me for some reason. Do I just hate Isabella that much? The finalists toast one another before heading to bed.
