They call Team T Rex back out to hear the results. Tom tells them that they know this was a difficult challenge, but this is All Stars, so get used to it. Then he excuses Tiffani and Dale, because their dish was the best. Then he addresses the remaining pairs. Tiffany and Antonia had unevenly cooked eggs, and they should be better chefs than that. Jamie and Jen (really, just Jen)'s dish had texture problems, and the garnish was underseasoned. Tom tells Jen, "I admire that you're up here vigorously defending your dish. However, it's not going to make the dish better." Oh, snap! Then he moves on to tell Casey that her salmon was good, but Tre's sauce was over-reduced. So who goes home?
Okay, I don't know who everyone else thought was going to go, but Padma sends Jen home. Jen immediately breaks into a laugh, which I think is a cover for a sob. Antonia and Tiffany both exclaim out loud something to the effect of, "Holy shit!" Everyone rushes over and hugs Jen. She has enough presence of mind to shake the judges' hands. In her exit interview, she says that her dish was awesome and maybe she was too strong and vocal at Judges' Table, but she doesn't know why she's going home. They told her why. The texture was off on the bacon and the eggs were underseasoned. It's not like it was a secret ballot. But she thought her dish was awesome, even though we saw multiple diners and judges (and Casey) talk about why it wasn't so great.
Jen goes back in the Stew Room and says goodbye, and even does a little curtsy. The other cheftestants seem stunned. Jen interviews that her dad said that second place is always first loser, and she wonders what he'll say about second to last. Who cares? Tell him to eff off, Jen. You're a good chef who had a bad day maybe due to lack of sleep or too much caffeine or something. Shake it off. She adds that she was robbed and she should have made it to the finals. Okay, let's not get crazy. I thought she would go far too, but obviously her dish was just bad. Tom and Gail both said in their blogs that it was easily the worst dish, and it was pretty obvious that either she or Jamie were going home even before Judges' Table. And once Jen said that Jamie had no effect on anything, Jen had to go. Done and done.
