Richard and Lisa have the fourth course, and they're doing a play on corn-fed beef. He asks them what the most difficult challenge was from their season, and Lisa immediately says that it was Wedding Wars. Richard thought it was also the most realistic, because that's what chefs do.
And finally, Fabio gets to talk to his castmates, Carla and Stefan, about the fifth course. Fabio says that he knows that they're making dessert, so he asks Carla how stressful it was to cook on the show. What a dumb question. Of course she's going to say that it was stressful. Carla interviews that her favorite challenge was the Le Bernardin challenge, because she admires Eric Ripert so much. Fabio brings up the time she cooked green eggs and ham. Carla admits that people stop her and ask about that dish all the time. Stefan teases Fabio about his accent and we're out.
Stefan tries to flirt with Tiffani and she jokingly accuses him of being a "lesbian opportunivore" and Lisa asks what that even means. Tiffani asks him about his "girlfriend" Jamie (as we see clips of their relationship) and Lisa interviews that she admires Stefan's cooking skills and food knowledge, but also his energy.
The cheftestants continue cooking and tasting and start plating. Finally, it's time to eat. They all head out to the dining table with their food. Once they're all seated, Fabio offers up a toast to the cream of the crop and explains how honored he is to be there, and how much he wishes he could have cooked with them.
Weird Interstitial. When Marcel, Casey, and Richard came back last season to be sous chefs in the finale, they were called before the judges. Richard was trying to talk about Hosea, and Marcel would not stop interrupting him to sing Stefan's praises. Finally, Toby Young told Marcel to shut up, and Marcel got all offended by it. Toby tries to reset things and ask a question and Marcel gets all bitchy about it: "If you were LISTENING to what I SAID..." Gail has to step in and remind Marcel that he's not being judged and they're just asking about the cooking, and Marcel gets sniffy and walks out in a snit. I think he might be on drugs. That's the only thing I can think of to explain his behavior. Because I just can't believe that one human being could be that much of an asshole. And also, the producers of this show hate him, because they have gone out of their way to show what a little prick he was.
