Jeff and Ariane are up next. Jeff ends up having to name six ingredients. He gets fennel and salt but then loses out on crab, so Ariane moves on. She interviews that the soup has thirty ingredients, so really, naming six shouldn't be THAT hard. Except that Jeff chose the wrong shellfish. Jamie and Stefan face off. Jamie interviews that Stefan is an asshole and a button-pusher, but she knows that's his role on the show. That was kind of meta, no? Anyway, Stefan has to name five ingredients, and he names salt, lemon, pepper, lobster, and olive oil. He's right and he moves on, calling it an ass whipping. Eugene and Leah face off. Eugene claims he can name four, but he guesses fish sauce, which is wrong. He heads off to the Stew Room, where he greets the other losers. I think I enjoy Quickfire Challenges more because since no one gets eliminated, the cheftestants tend to have a little more fun with them. The next person to make it through the first round is Radhika, who names three ingredients to beat Fabio. Carla claims that she can think of an ingredient and taste it IN HER MIND, because she is awesome. She names three ingredients to take Melissa out.
On to Round Two, where they have to taste Thai Green Curry. Hosea takes out Ariane by naming coconut milk, sugar, Thai basil, ginger, salt, pepper, and Thai chili. Pretty impressive. Stefan and Leah go head-to-head and Stefan tries to play mind games. He ends up naming eight ingredients easily and eliminating her. Leah interviews that Stefan is an asshole and she's pissed that she lost to him. Radhika tells Carla that she can name seven ingredients, but she gets one wrong. She's embarrassed because she feels like her palate is better than that.
In the final round, Hosea, Stefan, and Carla are left. They'll each taste the sauce, which is a Mexican mole sauce, and then take turns naming ingredients like it's a spelling bee. Carla goes first and says peanut butter, which is wrong. I guess she couldn't taste that one in her mind. Stefan and Hosea each name three ingredients correctly, but then Stefan says "tomato paste," which is wrong. Stefan has to name something correctly, and he says "vegetable oil," so he wins. He gets immunity from elimination. Hosea interviews that it was fun to beat Stefan, since he has a huge ego, and Hosea "out-palated him." That's true -- this wasn't a judged competition, so the loser can't even claim that the judges had it in for him.
