In the back, Josie says, "It was a pleasure working with all of you." Marcel wants to know what that means. "That Josie and I are going home!" Marisa says, fairly happily. Someone says, "I told you it would be two of us." Hugs all around. Cliff seems shocked. Elia tells us she was in shock and we see her crying. Josie says to us, "This was the first time in an Elimination Challenge I was on that chopping block. The first time! And you're going send someone with so much talent home?" Josie shrugs. Nothing wrong with her self-confidence. The remaining cheftestants applaud. Marisa tells us it's been tough but great, and she would do it all over again, "I'd would just make a few different choices that's all." How about the choice not to do a weird calendar? Also, stop with the Choice Theme, because it's forced and it's bugging me. "It's hard to walk away when you know that you're so talented and you just made, like, a bad decision, and it's, like, that decision cost you your whole, like, chance. I came here to win it! I had a lot of confidence going into this competition because I know how damn talented I really am." Man, she is putting all her egos in one basket.
Next week: Elia puts chocolate on her face like a mask, and Frank gets even more scary and intense. Meanwhile, Bourdain will be on, and I'm already sick of him casually tossing off his self-scripted bon mots that he's panting to use no matter what, just so he can just be known for all his CRAZY-man metaphors.
