Casey brings her cold stone over, and while explaining that she wanted to bring Sriracha into ice cream, she douses her ice cream with bloody slashes of the stuff. She also added poblanos, dried apricot, and potato chips. Wow -- her double-scoop of crap makes Hung's look almost appetizing. Casey's patter is, "We've talked amongst the house about how much we like Sriracha on everything, so we're going to see if it truly does go on ice cream." Govind takes a mouthful and just says, "Wow." He shudders. And it's not from pleasure. Casey admits good-naturedly, "I actually made Govind Armstrong shudder. He got a chill down his back from the interesting flavor of the ice cream. That's a first." You know, she could have made the pepper sauce work if she hadn't done all that other weird crap. Just combine it with hot fudge and a fleck of cinnamon butter to dull the vinegar-y taste while taking advantage of the heat. Moving on to Dale, Govind learns that he flambéed peaches with Grand Marnier and also candied pecans to imitate a peach cobbler topping. Govind likes it. He also likes Howie's mix-in of balsamic vinegar-macerated mixed berries with sea salt and sugar. Howie scorched the berries to crisp them up a bit, and Govind really likes it. We don't see what CJ, Sara N., or Sara M. did. I'm sort of sad we didn't hear what ice cream craziness the Brians got up to in this challenge, but there's definitely enough Briansanity later for a feast.
Govind says that both Hung and Casey were at the bottom of this challenge. Addressing Hung, Govind says, "I thought there was so much going on -- it was really difficult to decipher the flavors and how they all worked together." Hung's predictable response to us is, "Judge wanted something very simple, very catchy for the common people -- I think I just missed the whole flavor of adding fruit purees to it because that's what most people did." Get him -- "for the common people," like you're such a peasant if you don't want cauliflower crap in your ice cream. He's just one of the rarified few who are privileged enough to appreciate mixing cruciferous vegetables with soft-serve. Next time, he's going to create a Radish Buster Parfait and it's going to be loved by three whole people. He's that special. Govind says that Casey's Sriracha ice cream proved that he doesn't like that hot sauce on everything. His top picks are Dale and Howie, and he ultimately chooses Dale as the winner. Dale is thrilled to finally win something. Padma grins big and says, "For your Elimination Challenge...you're off the hook for now! Tonight, you'll get a chance to enjoy Miami nightlife." The cheftestants go wild. Because they're stupid and have never watched a Bravo competitive reality show in their entire lives.
