The judges love Amanda Freitag's dish - Geoffrey Zakarian deems it "five star camp food" but Donatella thinks it may be too "side dishy." The judges also like Jehangir Mehta's canned chicken pakora and Elizabeth Falkner's beef bordelaise. Although Marcel gets seemingly the easiest ingredient - canned clams - the judges deem his dish way too salty and Alton says it's inedible. Ouch. They judges also aren't big on Spike's dish, which is weird because he "brushes his teeth with nuoc cham." He should really just stop talking. Falkner takes the win and the two bros Spike and Marcel end up in the secret ingredient showdown.
The lucky secret ingredient is lobster which has both dudes stoked. Alex G. calls it - this is not a chef showdown it's a bro-down. Hiyo! Spike wants to make the kind of food that makes people either have sex after or fall asleep. Mmmk. Just to be completely annoying, the two bros decide to be clever and plate their dishes together. All the chefs are pissed. Nate declares that they are making a mockery of the competition. It doesn't matter when it comes to the judging as Spike is finally sent packing - it must have been Marcel's amazing hibiscus gel that put him over the top. Until next week.
