Jen, along with Dale, loves football (insert obvious joke here) -- her dad is a huge fan -- and she is making a Greek-inspired dish as a nod to, of course, Zoi. Man, Zoi may be gone, but she will certainly not be forgotten, as broken-record Jen and the producers are going to make us suffer for their disappointment at losing the potential lesbian drama. Jen will be offering tzatziki with chicken souvlaki and quinoa tabouli. Best of luck foisting tabouli on a bunch of die-hard football fans. Ryan, bless his dopey little heart, is making bread salad, chicken thighs, and a dessert of poached pears with crème fraiche, as well as chili-spiced cocoa, which will probably go over even worse than tabouli, as faggy as it all sounds. Richard, throwing his burgers, chortles over Ryan's "five course meal," but methinks that people who serve paté melts have no business throwing stones.
Lisa's bludgeoning a skirt steak, which she'll serve with corn cakes, and which hopefully won't be as inedible as her steak tacos. "Beating my meat," she calls it. Even though high-end Asian is her thing, she knows what grills well based on years of family experience, and thinks she's poised for another victory. Mark loses a fight with a blender filled with a murky brown liquid (and sprays Stephanie in the process) as Colicchio appears for his weekly walk-through. He talks tailgating with Jen ("two of my brothers played football," says she, as she pushes skewers into her chicken); she's feeling more "at ease" since she has immunity. Antonia, "picturing big fat men that like to drink a lot of beer," imagines that a Jamaican jerk chicken sandwich is the key to their hearts.
Dale, native Chicagoan and "die-hard Bears fan," is pumped by the challenge, while Ryan, talking a mile a minute, walks Colicchio through his meal, explaining that it will go over well because "it's simple, it's clean, they won't feel like they're going to be comatose after they're going into the game, it's light, it's fresh, it's something that you want to eat a lot of," which sends Colicchio running for the hills, as prep time inches toward an end and everyone begins packing up their food. Ryan, finally clueing in to his situation, expresses concern that he's bitten off too much.
A race against time becomes a race for space, as the refrigerators and coolers get packed to the gills with Glad products, and some food. As Dale bellows that there's no more space left anywhere, we get a shot of the GE Monogram logo, as if to remind us that even GE Monogram appliances can't handle the entirety of these people. Richard, imagining a cartoon-like situation in which everything tumbles out when a door is opened, secures the refrigerator doors with thick strips of masking tape, and everyone retires to chez Chef for the evening.
