CJ was probably shocked to see Kristen, and probably will be more shocked when he sees how Josie really deserved to be there (and pissed, as I'm sure he knows he could beat Josie).
They're given the alternating choices of time, protein, type of cuisine, and cooking gadget that must be used for some part of the dish. CJ chooses 30 minutes, Kristen chooses snapper, CJ chooses a hand held smoker, and Kristen chooses French. I can't really recall what CJ made, some snapper and smoked mashed potatoes I think, while Kristen went for redemption with a bouillabaisse. She had trouble with the smoker because she'd never used one before (which is why CJ picked it, that's what he hoped) but she noted that it appeared to be "just like firing up a bong", a device that she apparently has used before! Easily the best line of the competition.
One of the contestants (John?) notes that Kristen didn't do very well in QFs, even though she kicked butt in ECs, so maybe she'll have trouble in this competition. They definitely played up her frazzled behavior.
Tom said they were both good dishes, but ultimately...
CJ goes down!
Here's hoping Kristen makes it all the way back. Not because I like her, but because she's clearly one of if not the most talented on the competition, and got eliminated in a crappy way. She deserves to be back. I sure hope that she at least gets far enough to beat Josie in a LCK!
PS Hope I didn't step on any toes by starting this. I know Linda does the episode recaps, but didn't think there was a set LCK poster.
