Top Chef - Las Vegas - Ep. #9 - Restaurant Wars! - 10/21/09 (Spoilers)

Rick Moonen is guest judge; QuickFire is a TagTeam cookoff. Jen and Michael are "captains":

Jen's team is Kevin, Mike I., and Laurine
Michael's team is Bryan, Eli and Robin

Each team member is blindfolded and one team member cooks alone (without speaking) until they're done and the next team member comes up to cook during the next 10 minutes. They are *not* allowed to discuss the dish while choosing in what order they cook.

Michael and Bryan are last for each of their teams. Kevin veered off of how Jennifer started their dish off, and Michael is taking his team's dish way differently. Ought to be interesting.

Most surprising to me was Robin cooking after Eli - and actually realizing where Eli was going and continuing in his thought pattern. Interesting. Not sure that'll help her standing with Eli, but she's smarter than Eli thinks.
