Then the judges start telling Jen what was wrong with her dish. Gail says that she thought it was out of proportion, but Jen disagrees. Tom says that the pork was seasoned well, but the eggs were bland. Jen says that the eggs were NOT underseasoned, and that the bacon had strong flavor, and there's no changing her mind on the seasoning issue. Tom says that they'll have to agree to disagree. I find it interesting that they don't get into the texture of the bacon, which is what a lot of people pointed out was problematic. Maybe they did and they didn't show it.
The cheftestants head back to the Stew Room and Jen is VERY proud of herself. She tells everyone that she yelled at the judges more than they yelled at her. What is up her ass? Seriously? I get defending your dish, but when did she decide that the judges are totally against her and the other cheftestants to the point where they are fabricating opinions? Dale asks if she was this angry with the judges during her own season and Jen says, "AB-so-LUTE-ly NOT! Welcome to Jen All Stars." I don't like Jen All Stars. Can we trade her in?
Back at Judges' Table, Gail says she's never seen anyone so angry at judging, and Tom says that he doesn't mind it, because people will stay or go based on a dish, not based on talking back to the judges. They all agree that Tiffani and Dale made the best dish, so they are safe. They talk next about the frittatas. Tom is mad that they didn't pay more attention to how the eggs cooked in the oven, and Katie points out that it was a boring dish, more suitable to a buffet or a cruise ship. True. I think I've had those frittatas at various brunch places. Not too inventive. They all agree that Casey's salmon was good, but they can't understand why Tre served such a salty mess of a sauce. He should have fixed it or even not served it. Back in the Stew Room, Tre, Casey, and Dale L. discuss whether or not Jen put a target on her back with her diatribe. Tre and Dale think she did, but Casey points out that the judges won't take it personally.
They finally get around to talking about Jen's food. Gail thinks there's a huge disconnect between what Jen claimed her dish was, and what Gail actually ate. Good point. Katie didn't like the lack of texture, which was soft and soft with more soft on top. Tom hated the bland eggs. They discuss Jamie's role, and how Jen said she had nothing to do with the failed dish. Padma points out that it must hurt a little bit to hear that Jamie had no impact. I think as long as Jamie stays, she won't give a shit. Back in the Stew Room, Jamie says that she feels like she let her team down. No one disagrees. The judges have made a decision, finally.
