Katzie is nervous as service begins because her cake is not neat, which I am assuming refers to cleanliness, not neat-O-ness. Regardless, the services go on and the teammates offer up a trio of chocolate. Chris made a rather unattractive and flat brioche thingy that looks like a Pop-Tart so I wouldn't turn up my nose at it. Matthew made a chocolate tart with chiboust and caramel and compressed cherries and chocolate sorbet. It looks like something I could spend an afternoon with. Even though I have no idea what chiboust is, I am sure I could learn to love it the same way I am sure that Alexander Skarsgard could learn to love me. Katzie made a boca negra with mousse, jasmine and passion fruit (!) curd, candied violets and whipped cream glace. The judges dig in and ask Carlos what they think of Katzie's dish. He determines it is quite large. When they asked Orlando what he thought of Katzie's dessert, he lets loose with a lengthy diatribe, including that the shape wasn't clean, the dessert wasn't appealing, it was like baby food. Basically he decimated the dessert in 5000 words. The judges stared at him wide-eyed wondering if they can fire Dannielle and give Orlando the chair.
The teams switch places and Chris gets in touch with his inner art student and gives an impassioned critique of the column-like nature of Orlando's showpiece. Johnny shuts him down, because that's what Johnny does. I'm not saying that if I was really drunk and feeling vulnerable at a party I wouldn't make out with him, I'm just saying he's a jerk and I kind of like it. Orlando then comes in and serves up a puff pastry milk chocolate mousse with mango coulis and roasted cocoa nib sorbet. Sally made a chocolate sphere with a manjari caramel mousse, spiced caramel cram with passion fruit gelee (which brings the passion fruit count up to four for this episode alone.) Carlos made a caramelized cremeux, milk chocolate mousse, peanut butter mousse and caramelized banana. I feel that every dessert Carlos makes has chocolate and banana and peanut butter, not that it's a bad thing, but branch out a little there, guy. Matthew is being very kind to everyone at the critique and is following his wife's sage advice to keep his mouth shut. Apparently Chris' wife didn't tell him nothing, because he's yapping away. Oh that's right, she's at home with a newborn baby with a heart defect, so she might be a little distracted. Is it wrong to root for Chris to go home just so his wife gets a little help and, I don't know, a hug? Instead Chris lets loose with his criticisms and the judges kind of egg him on.
