The Blue Team is brought back in. Colicchio dresses down everyone but Lee Anne. He tells Harold he took responsibility a little too late, reminds Dave about his unseasoned octopus, and tells Brian that though they liked how he engaged the kids, his carrots were overcooked, and he tried to finger Dave as the leader when Colicchio specifically was told by all of them that they had no leader. Immunity be damned, Colicchio finally tells Tiffani that she better start respecting her clients. The Katie Leebot drones, "Brian, most of your teammates pointed the finger at you and we agree with them. Please pack your knives and go." Brian thanks them and leaves.
Lisa and Miguel are immediately sorry to hear that Brian's being sent home. Lee Anne hugs him and looks like she's in tears. She interviews that she really didn't want to see any of them go home: "If it was my choice, I'd send Stephen home on the Red Team." She makes a gagging face. Dave says that his team stood behind him and insisted he wasn't the leader when Brian was trying to convince the judges he was to blame, "and it ended up being the nail in his coffin." Brian leaves. "If there was a weakness on that plate, it was those dang carrots. Brian put himself in a position to make excuses as opposed to just stepping up and accepting responsibility for bad food," Dave continues. Brian tells us that if he had to do it again, he would change nothing. He didn't insult anyone, he wasn't disrespectful -- except for talking about how much banana ass was still left, right? -- and he knows that he gave his all. "Yes, I'm going home tonight but this is not the last you will hear from me. I'm Brian Fellows!" I swear that's what I thought he was going to say. He intoned it perfectly No, he really says, "I'm Brian Hill: professional chef to the stars in L.A., don't get it twisted." Don't get what twisted? The banana asses?
Next week, we're really getting into it, with SPAM and microwavable food for the Junior Leaguers of San Francisco!
