Finale: Waterlogged

Chefs Kate and Terry’s time in the boat in Round 1 was anything but serene, as their vessel was quickly filling with water. They had to prep and cook their loaded chili dogs while at the same time ladling the excess water out of the boat, but ultimately it was Chef Terry who contended with the water the most. "I'm doing all the work here!" Chef Terry yelled, urging Kate to pitch in.

Trapping Game

"The Bob trap is not a cooking vessel," Chef Daniel proclaimed in Round 2, referring to an unwieldy metal contraption on which he had to prep his game dish. But of course details like that don't matter at Camp Cutthroat. 

Better Together

After spending a whopping $32,000, Chef Terry sabotaged Chefs Daniel and Gabriel to balance each other on a log while working on their game dishes. "This is really a challenge," said Chef Daniel, stretching over to his workstation with one hand while firmly grasping Chef Gabriel with the other.

A War of Camp Proportions

For the last round in the last heat of his Camp tournament, Alton didn't hold back, telling the chefs, "All bets are off." Instead of letting them enjoy the luxury of spending money to save themselves from sabotage, he declared war on them, forcing them to crawl through the dirt to forage for ingredients and use expansive kitchen tools to prep their s'more desserts from afar — all while dodging water balloons, of course. "Yep, that's why they call it Camp Cutthroat, right there," Chef Gabriel admitted.

A New Camp Champ

Despite the less-than-desirable conditions in which the chefs found themselves in Round 3, both guys managed to execute their s'mores-inspired desserts on time, but ultimately Chef Gabriel's earned him the win. "The flavors are out of sight," judge Richard Blais said of the chocolate-peanut butter skillet treat from Chef Gabriel, who earned an impressive $54,900 after his two Camp heats. 

Heat 4: Feeling Trapped

While some sabotages place mental pressure upon the chefs, the opening challenge in Heat 4, a sabotage Alton described as his "Bob traps," left chefs Emilia and Kenneth with physical constrictions too. They were forced to work side by side in an oversize mesh net, taking turns prepping and cooking their breakfast burritos. "I definitely feel like an animal caught in a trap," said Chef Emilia, who landed in the entanglement with Chef Kenneth.

Careful Bartering

The rope sabotage that left one chef with all of the tools and another with all of the ingredients had the potential to be a simple enough challenge — it all comes down to sharing, after all. But sure enough, Chef Gabriel was in no mood to be civilized when it came to trading items with Chef Niko. "Don't hate the player, hate the game, baby," Chef Gabriel laughed afterward. He controlled the ingredients, and he chose to give his rival sliced bread and Swiss chard instead of burger buns and lettuce.

Feeding the Flames

"I'm putting the matches on the marshmallow, and it is not lighting," Chef Kenneth admitted in Round 2. Thanks to Chef Niko, Chef Kenneth was forced to use that fluffy treat as well as greasy potato chips and crunchy pretzels as his soul fuel sources to cook his burger. The pile of snacks indeed required a bit of finagling, but ultimately he lit them and managed to make a burger that wowed Richard Blais. "You have so much flavor coming from the char that's on this meat," the judge said.

The Tools for Trail Mix

"Take a look at this. You don't want this," Alton warned the Round 3 chefs as he auctioned off a larger-than-life walking stick, outfitted with the only tools one competitor would have to use to make his trail mix dessert. Chef Gabriel wound up with this gadget full of gadgets, but that didn't stop him from turning out a winning brownie-turned-cake offering that scored him a spot in the finale.

Heat 3: Falling for Ingredients

After a few failed "food drops," as Alton called the ingredients stuck in trees, it was up to sabotaged chefs Aaron and Sidney to search in trees for the items they'd need for their waffle breakfast in Round 1. Unfortunately for the chefs, their problems didn't stop there. "It's powdered stuff: butter, eggs, dehydrated things," Chef Aaron noted. "This stuff is awful."

A Rock and a Hard Sabotage

For chefs Sidney and Ulka, losing one hand each to a "boulder" was just one part of this evilicious sabotage; they also had to resign part of their dish to their competitor. While Chef Sidney was in charge of prepping components for both of their plates, Chef Ulka was the sole person cooking them. "So I'm going to combine all of Ulka's ingredients, but I'm not really going to be too concerned about the, uh, measurements, if you know what I'm saying," Sidney said with a smile. And ultimately, his plan worked, as Ulka was sent home following a flop in her waffle's texture.

An Unlikely Sidekick

Alton warned the chefs that "Bob the Bear flunked culinary school." But believe it or not, this furry giant was shockingly comfortable with the work Chef Daniel told him to do to prep the competitor's grilled fish dish. "Bob the Bear — I mean, we are, like, on the same wavelength," Chef Daniel noted. "I'm liking it."

A Quick Sabotage

In the Round 3 fruit crumble test, Chef Daniel was forced to think on his feet — literally — when he found himself battling quicksand below his prep table. He was forced to reach out and step carefully to grab his tools and ingredients, which, thanks to Alton's eviliciousness, were inconveniently placed on a high shelf of his table. Despite the challenge, though, Chef Daniel turned out a fruit crumble that bested Chef Sidney's, and ultimately Daniel earned the win and secured a spot in the upcoming finale battle.

Heat 2: The Wild Beasts of Camp

When bird, deer and cat Bobs walk out of the tent at Camp Cutthroat, you know things are going to get downright wild. In the first round, three chefs were forced to "become" these animals with a beak, a pair of antlers or a set of claws, and the chefs had to use those items as their sole cooking tools. "I definitely feel like a bird right now," Chef Greg admitted as he pecked away at a clove of garlic with the beak.

Big Foot, Bigger Problems

Chefs Raz and Terry realized that they'd stepped into a world of trouble when they found themselves in Alton's big-foot sabotage during the Round 2 trail lunch test. It was up to them to divvy their time at each person's prep station — which is easier said than done with just 30 minutes on the clock. "Terry and Raz are like [an] old married couple," noted Chef Mike, who sabotaged his competitors with this challenge. "All they're doing is bickering back and forth with each other."

Get the Grills On

Regular bear teeth may be sharp, but the grill that this particular bear head was sporting wasn't exactly knifelike. Thanks to Chef Raz, Chef Mike found himself slicing steak on these grills — barely. "I'm trying to rip or shred, anything I can do to break this meat down," he explained.

Balancing Acts

For Chef Mike, the trouble continued into Round 3's skillet cookie test, when he was forced to perch himself atop a skinny log in the water and prep his dessert from there. 

A Winning Woodsman

When in the woods, it's only fitting that you chop wood. Well, kind of. After sabotaging Chef Mike with the lakeside prep station, Chef Terry was hit with revenge and tasked with splitting wood to find hidden ingredients inside. Though he wasted valuable time collecting his goods, he managed to turn out a successful-enough dessert. Ultimately Chef Terry earned the Heat 2 win and a spot in the finale battle.

Heat 1: Tools for Camping (and Cooking)

Instead of giving them professional pots and pans, Alton forced three chefs to embrace more rustic tools — a knife, an ax and an arrowhead — to prepare their scrambles in Round 1. "I'm scrambling for something on the plate," admitted Chef Vincent, who was given the arrowhead for cooking, and indeed he had reason to worry; his too-small portion of eggs was enough to send him home.

Blending In

Chef Kate could hardly believe it when she (finally) saw the hidden camo getup she'd have to wear in Round 1. "It's a bit hot. It's tough to move around in there, and it's hard to see, as well," Alton told the chefs. Sure enough, Chef Kate felt the effect of this diabolical challenge when she knocked over her carton of eggs on account of her oversize outfit.

Safety Last

"Safety always comes first at Camp Cutthroat — for me, at least. For you, well, I like to lead with comedy," Alton joked to the chefs in Round 2 as he unveiled a hilariously large life jack, one that was far more evilicious than protective. Chefs Rue and Willie were forced to prep their meat-and-potato dishes alongside each other behind this vest using just one hand apiece, but their height disparity proved to be tricky, as Rue struggle to reach the prep table.

Taking Aim

When Chef Kate was gifted a potato-loaded gun in Round 2, she had the opportunity to shoot for new meat and potato products, but they were hardly the fresh ideals she'd picked up from the pantry. After a few flubbed shots, she finally struck canned roast beef and potato peels, and she managed to make do with the ingredients. "At least it's fully cooked, ready to go," she noted of the roast beef.

Northward Struggles and Success

Thanks to Chef Rue, her Round 3 rival, Chef Kate was saddled with not one but two sabotages in the dessert pancake cook-off, though neither stopped her from completing the task. After she learned to step on the rope that was belaying a faux Bob, she could devote more of her energy to attempting to cook her pancakes on a compass-shaped pan. What resulted was what judge Jet Tila deemed "a fun dish" that was ultimately worthy of the win.
