Ballooning Around

When professional balloon artist Robyn entered Boot Camp, she didn't come alone. Balloon versions of Tyler and Anne came along to add some humor to the stressful Baseline Challenge.

Please Egg-splain Yourself

The Baseline Challenge always brings out some interesting cooking techniques, but Asaf's strategy for cracking an egg had Anne and Tyler scratching their heads.

Melted Bag of Eggs

Eggs were also a challenge for Spencer who used a technique he'd learned as an Eagle Scout. "I'm doing signature eggs in a bag," he said with confidence. "It has ham, green pepper, eggs, and you pretty much throw it in a bag and put it in boiling water." "That could either be horrible or genius," Tyler said. Unfortunately for Spencer, the heat from the pot melted the plastic bag.

Acrobatic Asaf

Nothing like some light exercise to make you forget about your cooking skills.

Cheesy Toaster Technique

Everybody is always looking for shortcuts to save time in the kitchen. That's why Priscilla put slices of bread covered in cheese into a toaster laying on its side. "It cooks the bread faster," she said.

Pop Goes the Sandwich

Next time she'll have to remember to catch it when it pops out of the toaster.

Oomph & Thickness

Nobody wants a loose filling in their chicken pot pie, but instead of adding flour to it, Shatima threw flour right onto the pie crust. "It gives it extra oomph and the thickness," she said.

Cutting Board Confusion

Despite its name, a cutting board is not actually used to cut onions. Better luck next time, Asaf.

Sylvia Takes a Tumble

Sylvia was so excited to start the second week of Boot Camp, she could barely stand it.

Sharp Toss

The lesson in week two was knife cuts, and what better way to start than with a man juggling meat cleavers.

Red Finger Flop

There is one thing you can always be sure of when you step into Boot Camp. If you hold your knife wrong, Chef Anne will color your finger red.

Smoke Is No Joke

Brown food tastes good. Burnt food does not.

Messy Mentor

Tyler didn't seem too pleased when Kevin accidently splattered cream on his shirt.

Zipped Shut

Even with both of Skyler's hands, one of his hands, and his mouth, Sharon just could not open that plastic bag.
