Team 1 – Fabio, Dale, Marcel, Antonia, Blais, Carla, and Mike
Professional tennis player Taylor Dent joins Tom, Padma, Gail and Tony. Has anyone ever heard of Taylor Dent?
Tom said the gnocchi was fantastic and didn’t have too much protein. Tony found the pork to be very heavy. Fabio wins the point and then loses his mind, jumps over the net and screams. He’s Italian, he says, so he is forgiven.
Gail loves the bass, Padma prefers Dale’s dish, but the rest pick Tiffani. The score is tied.
Basically Angelo wins the vote from each one. Marcel is upset, especially since he was ready to go in the previous point, but Dale’s dish had to go out or it would have been ruined. 30-15 for Team Angelo.
This one is split – Tony and Padma prefers Tiffany’s dish, while Gail and Taylor go with Antonia. Tom is the deciding vote with the dish with the best all around flavors – Antonia. The score is now tied 30-30.
During prep, Spike overcooks his shrimp, so he scrambles to make more and thus scrimps on the seasoning. The team panics a bit and Angelo starts to mess with the dish – essentially with a tie match, facing Blais and with Immune Tre and Jamie’s terrible bean dish waiting in the wings, they went all in with Spike’s. Tony doesn’t care much for the two dishes, Blais’ is fatty and Spike’s is bland, but he goes with Blais. Padma agrees, and Tom tells Spike he loves the soup, but hated the shrimp. 40-30, match point.
Tre is selected to go on the court, despite having immunity, despite having done a fairly half-assed attempt at the salmon. That’s how bad Jamie’s had to have been. Taylor likes the salmon, but the rest rave about Carla’s soup. Game. Set. Match.
This means Mike and Jamie do not have to cook the final point, and Jamie essentially joins Tre with immunity.
Winners – Fabio, Carla, Blais and Antonia
Carla wins the challenge and earns a nice trip to Italy as a result.
