Back at the house, everyone is making dinner and trying to relax. Kevin interviews that dinner can be interesting (i.e. dramatic), but he just tries to get along with everyone. Meanwhile, Robin is standing in the kitchen and WILL NOT SHUT UP about her dish. Did anyone even ask her what she's making? She just has zero ability to read the room. It's obvious that no one is interested, although Kevin and Laurine (the overly polite ones) are sort of pretending to listen while they prep their dinners. Robin just goes on and fucking on about her sweet potatoes and her wine and blah blah blah and I really don't get why someone doesn't just say, "Robin, I know you're nervous about your dish, but I'm nervous too and I have a lot of thinking to do, so can we just have some quiet for a while?" Instead, they're all passive-aggressive about it. Mike I. says that if you say one word to her, Robin will talk all night, so he just doesn't talk to her. And for once, I don't blame him. I mean, the guys (both Mikes anyway) are sitting right there in the kitchen openly laughing at her and she has no clue.
Later that night, Eli is making seared scallops and Robin walks through the kitchen and can't not comment about it. Eli cuts her off kind of abruptly. Robin interviews that there's tension because some of the cheftestants think she doesn't deserve to be there. Well, that's part of it, and then there's also the part where she NEVER STOPS TALKING. Seriously. She's driving me nuts, and I don't have to live with her. So anyway, Eli blows up at her in a fairly immature way, but Robin was kind of being a bitch. She knows that people don't like her, so it's like she's purposely getting in their faces to force a confrontation, and then she can claim to be the victim when they lash out. She's also one of those people who has to have the last word. Believe me, I don't want to side with Eli, of all people, but she is the worst. Robin interviews that she's awesome because she's old, and then she continues to talk to herself in the kitchen, knowing that the cameras are recording her so she can get the last word. For some unknown reason, Robin then goes downstairs where everyone is eating Eli's scallops, and has to try to insert herself in the conversation. Like why not just go to bed and leave it alone? Gah. It's like living in a dorm all over again.
