The Taste 1/9/14

Thought I'd make a thread for the second episode of the second U.S. season.
Nigella's team loses the first competition so Nigella has to eliminate one person from her team. Kind of awkward. It isn't just eliminating the person who's dish went up it is picking through all the dishes. Reina is eliminated from her team. Frankly, glad to see that loud annoying woman go. All of her talking heads were about how Nigella is crazy and threatened by her beauty.
Guest judge is Edward Lee. He goes to mentor the winning team which is Ludo's. The theme is "My Life on a Plate." He cooks a fabulous looking dish for the team and the vegetarian woman refuses to taste his meat. The mind boggles. Edward Lee is just as personable and fabulous as would be expected. Sadly, not much time is devoted to him.
The show goes on to the individual challenge with Nigella down one chef. All the cooks get one hour to cook their dish. Tony, Nigella, Marcus and Ludo leave the room. The team that won the team challenge gets to keep Ed Lee in their kitchen.
While we wait to see who goes home we find two contestants are having a showmance. Previously we heard about the previously fat woman's blog with her 5 million fans... and now for the judging
Jay and Audrey are selected as the worst cooks. Jay, the former 400 pound guy that does wedding cakes gets sent home.
Nigella's team has just been whacked in half. If how they cooked in this show is any indication... the rest of her team won't be here much longer as well.
