Too Much Ambition and Dry Cake Dooms One on 'Top Chef: Just Desserts' (VIDEO)

The contestants were arbitrarily split into four teams of three on this week's 'Top Chef: Just Desserts' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo). For the elimination challenge they were tasked with creating a three-layer cake to celebrate opening night for the Walt Disney Orchestra. Each team member would be responsible for one layer of the cake. A lack of communication led to one cake having two chocolate layers, while it was Vanison who got overly ambitious and pushed his team in a more intricate direction than they were comfortable with. More critically, it was an ambition they could not live up to.

Johnny Iuzzini Talks 'Top Chef Just Desserts' & Stepping Things Up in Season 2

'Top Chef' is a juggernaut, with cheftestants competing for huge prizes and culinary glory going on nine seasons now. But one thing has been a constant on 'Top Chef' and its spin-off 'Top Chef Masters': desserts can send even the most talented chefs off to pack their knives and go. Pastry is full of complicated, mathematical equations that savory chefs don't often bother with, and if a dessert fails, it's not usually a simple fix. The recipes call for much more time and patience, a luxury not usually given in reality TV competitions. Which is why I was so thrilled that 'TC' got another spin-off last year: 'Top Chef Just Desserts.' While Season 1 delivered on drama, it left too much to the imagination when it came to the food, but they've kicked it up a few degrees with Season 2 (Wednesdays, 10PM ET on Bravo). I caught up with the show's head judge and chef mentor, James Beard award-winning pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini. Iuzzini's ditched his buzzed-about pompadour and chops from last season and is putting all his opinions and personality in his cryptic facial expressions. Let's just say if you're a chef on the show and you're questioning your dish, an eyebrow-raise from Iuzzini will drive you insane wondering if you've failed or triumphed.

The Fairy Tale Ends Right Away for One Chef on 'Top Chef: Just Desserts' (VIDEO)

The second season of 'Top Chef: Just Desserts' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo) kicked off with a fairy tale theme, but it wasn't a happy ending for one contestant who would bear the unfortunate stigma of being the first person eliminated. !!SPOILER ALERT!! The season opened up with a Quickfire Challenge pairing up the fourteen contestants. Each was tasked with creating a soda-fountain inspired dessert, where Amanda and Nelson came out on top. That said, it's so early in the competition, it's hard to know who to root for yet.
