Back in the Stew Room, the chefs are going a little loopy. At Mike’s suggestion, they all start some sort of dance off. Free wine is a hell of a thing.
One the festivities have settled down, Spike is – you guessed it – still grumbling about Jamie. Fabio, Carla, Richard and Antonia from Team Orange are up first. Padma tells them the winner will receive a trip to Italy. Gail calls their food the best she has tasted across all the seasons. But who wins the trip? Carla! Hootie Nation, represent! Later she tells the cameras she has to resist the urge to go “nah-nah-nahnahnah” to her doubtful teammates.
Then Casey, Tiffany, Tre and Spike are sent in as their point losers. After they leave, Blais turns to Jamie and this exchange happens.
Blais: Jamie, you’ve got a story going now.
Jamie:What? I’m sorry, Richard, I’m trying not to be offended by your comment.
What exactly is my story going on here?
Blais:I’m just saying it’s an odd story.
Jamie:Because I haven’t cooked?
Wow, Blais – d-ck move. Seriously, d-ck move. Would he have called out a male chef who didn’t “cook” like that? No one called out Mike, who also didn’t serve his dish. The only other dish she didn’t finish was the one where she sliced open her finger. But let’s not get into the whole, suck it up and cook while injured thing. Those comments from Blais were unnecessary. What were they meant to accomplish what? Earn points with the other chefs? Make Jamie feel bad? Like I said, d-ck move.
