Dakota speaks up and says that she doesn't like how this is going, and that Beverly is a strong, hard-working chef. Nyesha nods vigorously. Dakota adds that people don't see eye-to-eye sometimes, but you still have to work together. Yeah, Heather. Sit down and shut it. Tom tries to bring the focus back to today's dish, and Heather says that Beverly doesn't have confidence in herself. Bev says that her version of teamwork is asking questions and communicating together, and that she stands by the dish. Man, Heather came off as a real asshole. There was no reason for her to bring up the last challenge. It had nothing to do with their dish today and the judges seriously don't give a shit what happens in the kitchen, personality-wise, so if she thought she was winning points there, she's dead wrong.
Back in the kitchen, Heather offers one of the worst apologies I have ever heard: "Bev, I'm sorry if you think that I hurt your feelings, but that's the truth. I didn't call you out in the last challenge at the judges' table, and you know what? I feel like I had no say in our dish. I said I didn't want to do anything Asian. You didn't listen to any of my ideas." Beverly did NOTHING BUT LISTEN to her ideas. Heather had a bazillion chances to change things up. Heather is a terrible, terrible person. Beverly interviews that, unlike Heather, she doesn't feel better when she puts someone else down. Grayson points out that, by selling Bev out, Heather may have sold herself out. Then Heather snaps at Grayson, who is talking calmly, and Grayson says that she doesn't think Bev has a bad work ethic. Then everyone gives up and just lets Heather rant because why bother? Seriously? Bev says that they made every decision together and Heather says that she took responsibility for it. Oh, really? So like two minutes ago when she said that she felt like she had no say in their dish, that was taking responsibility? Heather keeps ranting and raving and everyone just sits there, feeling gross. Have you ever been in that situation? Where some asshole is yelling like an idiot and you know it's not even worth it to call the person out, but it makes you feel sick? Everyone in the room but Heather has that look on his or her face right now.
