The lone Michigan chef on Top Chef became the second person to be eliminated on the Bravo cooking show, after her shrimp and avocado ceviche didn't sit well with the judges - probably because there'd been far too many ceviche that have been on this show. The elimination challenge was to create a dish for a bachelor and a bachelorette party. After all, what is Vegas without weddings?
Starting off the Top Chef episode was a dice roll once again. This time, the contestants rolled the dice and the number they got would correspond to the number of ingredients they would have to use on the quickfire challenge. It's tough to tell whether you'd want something high or low in this quickfire challenge. But almost everyone got high numbers, except Laurine who rolled a 3, which wasn't necessarily bad since Todd English was judging and as we all know, he's all about simplicity.
At the end of the challenge, it was Jesse, Eve, and Bryan who impressed Todd the least, while Michael V., Jennifer, and Kevin had the best dishes. In the end, Michael V. won the challenge, and $15,000 and immunity.
Moving on to the elimination challenge, the Top Chef people were divided by gender to prepare dishes for a bachelor and a bachelorette party. Already, the gender-specific challenge didn't sit well with gay Ashley and Jennifer, who felt that gender is irrelevant in the kitchen. Host Padma then introduced the group to the lucky couple who'd be getting the parties.
In the end, it was Jesse, Eve, Preeti, and Ashley who didn't really satisfy the judges, while Bryan, who was in the bottom during the quickfire challenge, came out with the win, thanks to his sweet and sour macaroon filled with guacamole, corn nuts, and corn puree.
