Grayson was very outspoken. And we get a montage to prove it, including the Little Green Frog song, which I enjoyed. Grayson: crazy lady. Got it.
Apparently, Ed made a joke on one of their road trips about a new show called Mediocre Chefs, which you would win by putting out the most mediocre food. So the editors put together a clip montage with Padma announcing and people talking about their mediocre food and then reacting as if that's awesome, or cooking good food and then reacting as if that's bad. It's really funny but also really eye-opening about how easy it is to manipulate the show through editing, since this was concocted wholesale.
A viewer wants to know why the judges were so hard on the cheftestants this season. They were? Tom thinks they were cranky from the heat. Gail says that they knew the group was talented, and they wanted to challenge them and raise the bar.
Remember Last Chance Kitchen? In case you didn't watch any of it, here's a montage. Andy congratulates Beverly for winning. A viewer points out my biggest problem with this side competition, which happened when Beverly and Nyesha competed. Nyesha was on a huge winning streak and then during her competition with Beverly, Tom made them switch stations halfway through and cook the other person's dish. All of the other competitions had been very straightforward, and it just felt like it was a fix to give Beverly a leg up. Nyesha says that she thought it was fair, but she's just being nice. It was bullshit.
Another viewer wants to know if the other cheftestants thought it was fair that people got another chance after they were eliminated. Keith thinks it was fair and so does Beverly, but Edward laughs that since he was the first person eliminated after Last Chance Kitchen ended. Of course no one is going to say it wasn't fair, especially since Beverly didn't win. At best, it was a nice second chance and, at worst, it was useless. I still think they would have been better off having the person come back halfway through. Let one of the first eliminated people come back.
Andy moves on to talk about Ty-Lor's naked photos. I'm not going to link to them, Google that shit if you need to know. Ty-Lor says they're artistic and not sexual and Padma can't stop laughing. Ty says that they were well before the show and part of his coming out process. Andy wants to know if Ty is a bear. Ugh, this went to a weird place. I mean, there's nothing wrong with bears, but what does this have to do with the show? Ty says he's gay and hairy, so okay? And then Andy asks Ty if Chris Hollywood is in love with himself, and Ty says that he's good looking. Let's look back at Chris Hollywood's journey. He was fat. Now he's not. He likes to primp in the mirror. He's single. The end.
