The sun sets and the judges head over to Lisa's table. Gail comments that one dish is really sweet. Padma asks her what a mojo is, and Lisa says that it's a garlicky dipping sauce. Lisa interviews again about there being no room for mistakes, but I think we got it. Finally, the judges head to Antonia's table. Gail asks about the curried pork and Antonia says she was trying to be traditional. Padma asks how long they soaked the beans, and Antonia says it was overnight. After the judges leave, Nikki gives Antonia a hug. They are sure to show a bunch of shots of Antonia's table, at which there is no line at all. Various party attendees express their enjoyment of all four cheftestants, so that was pretty much useless. I feel like we got a lot less feedback on the dishes this time during the event; maybe all that footage courtesy of the Puerto Rican tourism department took up too much time.
The event ends, and it's time for Judges' Table. Wilo was impressed with the quality of the dishes overall. Tom liked Richard's pork belly (that he cooked, not referring to Richard's body, although that would be kind of funny) and Stephanie's chicharrones. He thought Lisa and Antonia were not as strong as the others. In the waiting room, the cheftestants squirm and discuss if they had any fatal flaws. Antonia admits that her peas were undercooked.
Padma calls Richard and Stephanie out first, since they were clearly better, as always. Antonia gets this sort of bemused look on her face, since she knows that if she's being paired with Lisa, she's in the bottom two. In front of the judges, Richard says he thought it was a great challenge. Tom liked that Richard seemed to simplify his dishes. Stephanie says that she liked working with Dale. Wilo loved the flavor of Stephanie's pork dishes. At first, I thought Stephanie would mention the bad pork incident, but I think it was kind of cool that she didn't, and try to make it out like, "Not only did I make great food, but look at the obstacles I had to overcome in doing so!" Wilo announces that it was a unanimous decision, and the crowd agreed, that Richard is the winner. And he wins a car! Richard is stunned and thrilled. Boy, he looks like Jim Breuer sometimes, doesn't he?
