Sara: I am with you already on team Chris & Sally! I like them both! Craig, I was willing to give him a chance because he came in so eager, but I think he might be a little too big for his britches. Orlando is already getting on my nerves. Who wants to be known as “the evil villain”??
Jillian: Orlando, I can see him as the EV, he definitely strikes me as someone who would sabotage and push a bus over someone without so much as a second thought.
So what did you think of the Soda Pop Challenge? I was surprised that not one but two teams did banana splits! Though my favorite quote of the evening came from that challenge…. “it is an NFG… Non Functioning Garnish” – Johnny in response to Orlando’s vanilla bean garnish on the banana split.
Sara: I was actually a little insulted that they tried to make banana splits. You are on Top Chef! My little sister can make you a banana split. I liked the challenge but was hoping for more, I guess I shouldn’t judge since they only had 30 minutes, but I am anyways. Johnny’s quote was my fave as well! And the cherry on top was the look on Orlando’s face when he said it and tossed the vanilla bean to the side. What did you think of the elimination challenge?
Jillian: I loved the 4 Fairy Tale Themes and thought it was great that Orlando and Chris were on separate teams because we got to see them compete on the show pieces, and I have to say I loved Chris’s Little Red Riding Hood Figurine, and I’ll give Orlando a compliment here, the Goldilocks show piece was beautiful, even if he is a know it all dictator like contestant. So it was no surprise to me when those two teams were the Judges Faves as well.
I felt so bad for Team Jack and the Bean Stalk, sigh, Craig – you try and try but you are just not ready for this competition, he will be gone next is my prediction. I was also not surprised to see Lina go home from Team Hansel & Gretel, she seemed to need to be in charge and yet she had no good ideas, seriously cake instead of a gingerbread house?!
Sara: I loved the Fairy Tale Themes as well! Chris and Orlando both created gorgeous pieces. I guess they have competed before which is why Orlando is so competitive with him. What Chris did with his Little Red Riding Hood, and Orlando did with his chocolate blew me away!
Craig, Craig, Craig…he took on more then he could handle. It was impossible for his teammates, Katzie and Megan, to get anything done with him constantly pulling them away. I will say though I give them credit for not flipping out on him, I would have lost my patience at some point. Considering they were a team member less then the winning team, and fell so far behind I think they made the best of it! Lina, was only in-charge because she put herself there. I was not impressed with her ideas, or execution. I was content with her going home, and that Chris’s team won.
Jillian: I so totally agree with everything you have said! So weird after us having different faves last season, we’ll just have to see where this season leads!
