And time to finish up with Tom. He already sent John through, so it's between Micah, Lizzie, Anthony and Jorel. Everyone else is busy cooking, but Anthony seems to be just standing around and watching, and Tom has noticed. Tom tastes the duck that Micah just plated, and tells him it's really good, and then Tom interviews that in contrast to Anthony, Micah has just jumped in and seems really confident in the kitchen. Jorel is making a sauce; Tom tastes it, pulls a face, and asks Jorel if he tasted it. Jorel says he did, but doesn't offer up any problems, so Tom tells him it's a little salty. And then Jorel makes no move to fix it. Maybe his moustache got in the way of his tasting. Every time I write that, please know that I am pronouncing it "moose-tosh" in my head. One of Tom's sous chefs tastes it and says it's "more than a little" salty, and they can't use it. Tom tastes Anthony's dish, and says it's seasoned perfectly. Then Tom tells everyone to let his crew take over, and they're going outside to discuss who's going through to Seattle.
Tom tells the assembled group that they did really well under the circumstances, and he's really excited about the talent level for this season. He adds that John already got sent through, and some of them are surprised to hear that he got through, and didn't get sent home. Tom tells Lizzie that he really liked how she moved through the kitchen, and she did a great job with the pasta, so she's going to Seattle. Tom tells Jorel and his moustache that he was tentative, screwed up the butchering, and his beurre fondue was too salty and unusable, so he's getting the axe. Tom tells Anthony that he was too tentative, and while he made some decent dishes, he also screwed up his butchering and his efforts weren't quite enough, so he's also going home. Tom tells Micah that he moved through the kitchen with confidence, although he screwed up butchering the fish, but his food was good enough to redeem him and he's going to Seattle.
So we've got our cast, and in the preview for the season, it looks like John, Joshua, Carla and Micah butt heads with the others. And there's something in a bog, and roller derby, and then they go to Alaska or something? Should be interesting.
