*swoon*Across the country, Jen is all about sky-high luxury in her Philadelphia high-rise apartment, complete with stunning views, an open floor plan and a kitchen tricked out with an espresso maker that has us green with caffiene-fueled jealousy. Carroll's crib is a massage chair that reclines to sleeping position, perfect for that coffee comedown. But, let us not forget this is Spike, so there's also a massive graffiti mural in the living room, "a piano which I suck at" according to Spike and a sleek pool in the backyard.And you might recognize the art that graces her bedroom wall, as it's a poster from Top Chef season six, which she first competed on. And after a few sex references, Spike even shows off his black-on-black Infiniti and motor scooter, perfect for zipping around the nation's capital.
Lastly, Richard Blais shows off his Atlanta house which he says is "one part frat house, one part crazy kids' playpen." Sure, there's video games and a kitchen pantry filled with Richard's crazy gadgets and ingredients, but the real showstopper of this video is his Adorable (yes, that's with a capital A) daughter Riley, who graciously introduces us to her dolls and teddy bears.
And though Richard isn't rocking an Infiniti like Spike, he does show off his car: The Toyota Corolla that he won while on Top Chef.
As it turns out, Jen and Spike are living well city style, while Richard and Fabio opt for a little more lax suburbs-and-house place to rest their heads. Fabio's Los Angeles pad is probably the most modest of the bunch, though he still goes big where it counts.
While settling for a rickety entertainment stand that literally sways to the touch, Fabio can at least relax in comfort with his massive king couch.
Miguel: [Referring to Andrea before the Judges' Table convenes] My friend has immunity here, and I'm up on the chopping block but I feel great and I know she saved me today, so I'm feeling really confident. And I think today's Elimination challenge dish was a definite difference from what I have shown in this competition before. Tom: Casey, you've been a fierce competitor this entire competition.
Harold: [Going to the Judges' Table with the second group] I knew we were in trouble at this point cause, I mean, first group that goes in gets handshakes, kisses, and champagne and the second group goes in and it's usually a bloodbath. Tonight's menu just never came together for you, but we know you're a great chef, and I know when I'm in Dallas where I can go to get a good meal.
Following a failed attempt at his culinary dream, Richard wants to invest his winnings to finally succeed in opening a fine dining restaurant in Atlanta.
Unfortunately, he struggles between his ambitions in the kitchen and being there for his family at home.
They are judged by a panel of professional chefs and other notables from the food and wine industry with one or more contestants eliminated each week.
