Episode 8: Differing Deveining Difficulties

"We're just cruising through this," Ann says, thanks to Laura's lead during the fill-in-the-blank recipe challenge. Meanwhile on the Red Team, everyone is falling behind, both in deciphering the recipe and in cooking. "You should have been done with that, like, 20 minutes ago," Anne yells at Daniel, who's taking too long deveining shrimp. But the bigger offense might be Ann not deveining the shrimp correctly.

Condiment Reunion; Team Dissention

"Finally I can use ketchup in Boot Camp," says Mandy, who's in charge of the remoulade for her team's dish. "You feel better now?" Anne jests of Mandy's reunion with her favorite food group, condiments. But as time counts down, her team members start to turn on one another, starting with Mandy, who mistakenly uses the wrong mustard. A few other small mistakes add up, so the win goes to the Blue Team.

Considering an Unconvincing Performance

"This is me telling you you can do it," Anne says to Mandy, who's having trouble keeping it together during the Mardi Gras-themed Main Dish challenge. "I can do it," Mandy shouts, throwing her arms in the air, rediscovering her confidence after the pep talk. But soon enough she's frazzled again, which causes Anne to question whether to keep Mandy. "There's always a rainbow after every storm," Mandy reminds Anne.

From Seafood Disaster to Master

"I know exactly where the vein is," says Ann, prepping shrimp again for the Main Dish challenge, determined never to devein shrimp incorrectly again. Onto shucking oysters, she's hesitant at first, but she gets it on the first try. "You've got it," Rachael shouts, patting her recruit on the back. "That's a shrimp that will make you cry — in a good way," Rachael says of Ann's bouillabaisse.

Technical Whisking Difficulties

"I can't figure out which hand the whisk is supposed to be in; I can't figure out which hand the oil's supposed to be in," says Laura while making the aioli for her dish. "Do I just not have enough hands?" she asks herself, comparing the task to patting her tummy and rubbing her head at the same time. But it all comes together once she's got the motions down.

 

Well-Intentioned Yet Misguided Actions

Even though her biggest fear is popping oil, Brittany adds stock to her pan of oil to see if it's hot enough to sear her chicken breast. "Why would you do that?" Anne asks. Brittany then realizes she forgot to baste the breast. "Better late than never," she says, running to the oven to pour the pan drippings on the chicken. Despite Brittany's declarations she'll do better, Anne sends her home.

Shellfish Aversions

"Oysters are best enjoyed with, like, a lot of stuff on top," says Laura as she prepares a mignonette sauce for the shellfish. But Adam, who hates seafood, doesn't think it masks it enough. "It's still an oyster, and it still tastes disgusting," he says. Although Rachael compliments his mignonette, she finds his bouillabaisse is missing bell peppers and a garnish. For those reasons, Rachael sends Adam home.

Episode 7: Offal-y Good Trickery

"This food looks really, really good," says Brittany as Anne and Rachael invite the recruits to try the foods in front of them before revealing the truth about the dishes. "Jeff, your face is just priceless right now," says Anne as the first cloche is lifted, revealing tripe. "There is nothing to freak out about," says Ann, who's the only one who has no issue with the offal dishes.

Deep-Seated Veggie Fears

"It's just staring me down," says Ann, terrified by eggplant, the item she's chosen to cook for the Skill Drill, which requires the recruits to use two hated ingredients. She fries the eggplant to hide as much of its flavor as possible. However, she refuses to taste it. "Just take a bite and chew," Rachael insists. "I have never been so scared to put anything in my mouth," says Ann, holding her mouth.

Cooking with Alien Corn Children

"The idea of touching and eating baby corn turns my stomach," says Jeff, who's chosen the canned vegetable and calamari as his two hated ingredients. Anne can't fathom why he hates baby corn so much and comes after him, wiggling a tiny cob in front of his face. "Little cobs of corn should not be that small," Jeff explains. "It looks like a little alien finger."

Showing Off for the Sake of It

"I feel like I have a lot to prove, so to impress Chef Anne, I think I'm going to try to flambe," says Mandy. "I did it," she screams, having achieved the technique. "I don't know why she's flambeing bacon, but at least she did it," Anne says to Rachael. During the tasting Anne praises Mandy's newfound confidence, but Anne is disappointed by her recruit's cooking of the vegetables and chicken. Mandy lands in the bottom.

An Explicit-Sounding Technique

"Just like everything else in Boot Camp, it's grosser than I thought it would be," says Laura, cutting the spine out of her Cornish hen in order to spatchcock it. "What did you just do to that chicken?" Anne asks Brittany, who can't seem to remember anything more than the last half of the word. Then Jeff chimes in with a graphic phrase. "That's Food Network After Dark," Anne says jokingly.

Outseasoned in Boot Camp

Even though Jeff's sprouts aren't cooked enough, Anne likes the direction he took in using pancetta. "I feel like we mentioned the S word before," Anne says, disappointed that his chicken and mashed potatoes are both missing salt. Jeff joins Mandy in the bottom; Anne decides to send home Jeff. "I'm so excited to take the skills I learned here at Boot Camp home to my family," he says.

Swooping In with the Save

On the Blue Team, Laura is in first place and Adam's right behind her; Rachael reveals that Ann must depart. "Today was your most-successful day in Boot Camp with seasoning," Rachael says before taking Ann's apron. But as Ann walks away, Rachael pulls the save lever. "The plane was going down. I had my life jacket on. We're ready to crash. And here comes Rachael," Ann says, describing her feeling of relief.

Episode 6: Getting Boozy in Boot Camp

"It's going to be a good day at Boot Camp," says Laura upon seeing cocktails for all the recruits to try. But Rachael warns them not to drink all of the samples, because the recruits will have to create cocktails for the mentors to judge. "I thought this was so straight-up crazy," Rachael says as she starts critiquing Laura's "cuddle-up cocktail," an apple and bourbon drink. But Rachael admits that it's delicious.

How to Scare Off a Date

"I'm going to try something that's completely off the wall," says Jeff, dropping an oyster into his blender of ice and strawberries for his aphrodisiacal take on a margarita. "Oh, I'm not drinking that," says Rachael upon seeing his secret ingredient. "Oh, my God," says Anne, when Jeff brings up his "make-out margarita." Neither mentor is up to try it. "Whipped-up fish and fruit," says Rachael hesitantly.

From Low Point to Woo Point

"Why does it smell like it's burning?" Mandy asks herself as she's melting chocolate for the Valentine's Day Skill Drill. Suddenly she realizes a towel has begun to scorch on her stove. "Well, that didn't just happen," she says, folding it up neatly to hide the burn. Mandy has better luck with her dish, creating a peanut butter and pretzel combo that Rachael and Anne love enough to award her the win.

Getting Too Loose with Booze

"Those four shots of Kahlua were maybe a bad idea," says Laura, realizing her chocolate pudding is too watery. As Rachael and Anne sample the recruits' offerings in a blind tasting, they eventually get to Laura's. "Oh!" they shout in unison as the pudding spills everywhere after Rachael cuts into it. "Well, the look was the most-successful part of that," Rachael says, scoring the dessert in last place.

Sending Up Smoke Signals for Help

"What's happening over there?" Anne asks and turns to Rachael, inquiring about the Blue Team's Adam during the Main Dish challenge. "He's trying to brown his lamb chops," Rachael replies half-laughing. Both mentors watch as his pan starts smoking. "You might want to turn that heat down a bit," Rachael warns him. Adam, admitting he always burns food, hurries to comply.

Performance Anxieties and Ironies

"Alright, I'm standing behind you," Anne tells Mandy, who's getting ready to flambe her chutney. "There you go, sort of," says Anne when Mandy achieves a moderate flame that goes out rather quickly. "You know what's really weird," Anne says aloud to her recruits, all struggling with the technique. "The Red Team, I think, starts fires when they don't want to, and now that we're trying to, we can't."

Seeing Seafood Differently

"I don't really understand scallops," says Laura, struggling to trim the foot as Rachael had instructed her team to do so. "It's like a marshmallow of the sea, which sounds delicious but also gross," Laura explains of her confusion about the shellfish. "He looks like a Pac-Man," Rachael points out about one of Laura's overly trimmed scallops.

Valentine's Day Surprise

"I think you may have done the best of the three with your sauce," Rachael says, complimenting Adam on his scallop and lamb dish. She gives him the win this week. "If you made that for your wife, she'd be happy," Anne says to Jeff of his duck. She picks him as her winner. After announcing the recruits in the bottom, the mentors reveal a surprise. "We can't break up with anybody today," says Anne. "It's Valentine's Day," adds Rachael. "Love is in the air."

Episode 5: Game Day Rivalries

"Do we need caffeine," Rachael asks, turning toward her team, who hasn't yet gotten a point in a game of Family Food. "Guys, you want to make a grown woman cry on game day?" Luckily Laura and Ann come through for Rachael, but it's not enough to beat the Red Team's lead. "My rocking Red stars are killing it," says Anne as her recruits earns five minutes of help from their mentor as an advantage.

Putting Herself in a Pickle

"I wish I'd paid more attention to when [Anne] talked about the brining," Kayla mutters to herself during the Main Dish sandwich challenge, which must include a pickled element. "I'm absolutely speechless," Says Anne upon seeing the brine, figuring out Kayla must have accidentally added flour. "Oh, my God," shouts Kayla. "I couldn't figure out why that was so thick."

Overcoming Meaty Fears

"I am petrified of these chicken wings," says Laura, who has to cook the additional dish as part of the challenge. "I am just not interested in eating chicken on a bone like some kind of caveman," she explains of her uncommon dislike. Luckily Rachael finds Laura's wings fantastic, even liking the potato salad, although cut too large, inside her sandwich. Laura wins the challenge this week.

Intimidated by His Advantage

"I could use your help next, please," Jeff calls to Anne, who comes right over. Immediately she starts pointing out some of his mistakes, like his under-seared steaks, which makes Jeff self-conscious. "I'm always awkward and embarrassed when Chef Anne comes by," he admits, asking his coach to blend the marinara sauce for his fried zucchini. "That's how you're going to use me," Anne asks skeptically.

Risking Mushroom and Limb

"I put my hand on a hot pan that's been in the oven at 400-something degrees for 20 minutes," yells Adam, running to the sink to cool his right hand. "I've got to turn around. I can't look," says Rachael, seeing what's happened. After medical attention Adam completes his stuffed mushrooms. "Burn or not, I am going to keep going," he says. Fortunately they're a hit, but not so his hoagie-style sandwich.

Overdoing It, Outdoing It

"I cut back on a lot of ingredients that were in my head," Maria claims, but Rachael's not believing it. "There's a party happening inside the sandwich," Maria says, presenting her dish excitedly. Upon looking at it, Anne corrects her: "That's a big, sloppy party." After hearing the laundry list of ingredients, Rachael reminds Maria to calm it down. With Ann and Maria in the bottom, Rachael sends Maria home.

Bungled Second Chances

"I saved you once. Are you making me regret that decision?" Anne yells at Kayla for nearly giving up when there's little time to make deviled eggs. Kayla's not the only one falling behind. Ann on the Blue Team barely finishes her deviled eggs, but they're not even remotely appealing enough for Rachael to taste. But Kayla has no eggs, so between Jeff and Kayla, Anne eliminates Kayla for the last time.

Episode 4: Little Things to Be Intimidated By

"Something is up," says Matt when he walks into Boot Camp and doesn't see any game props or anything unusual. But Anne and Rachael reveal that Food Network Star: Kids contestant Lexi and Anne's niece Isabella will be coaching them. "Nothing feels worse than seeing a child that's better at cooking than you," says Kayla. "Be warned: I'm tougher than my aunt," Isabella tells the recruits.

Somewhat Successful the First Time Around

"It just occurred to me for the first time: People make ranch dressing," says Laura, who decides to make a ranch pizza in the Skill Drill. "But I don't know how to make ranch," she adds. She creates some unusual concoction of jalapenos, milk and mayonnaise (which she adds when the mixture looks too thin). Except for too much sauce, the pizza turns out OK.

A Danger to Herself and Children

"Don't hold your knife up like that," Lexi warns Ann, who's decided to make a white sauce for her pizza. Ignoring Lexi's advice, Ann starts walking around with a knife, and Lexi has to warn her again. Then Ann's pan goes up in smoke. "You need to keep that to yourself," Ann says, hoping Lexi won't be a snitch; Ann doesn't realize that Rachael and Anne are watching it all on closed-circuit TV.

Floundering When Filleting

"Matt, you are mutilating that fish," Rachael yells at her recruit during the Main Dish challenge. "Don't be a wuss," she adds, but it's too late, as he's already donned surgical gloves, refusing to handle the flounder with bare hands. Rachael's pleased Matt gets "a complete meal" on his plate, but it's nothing close to what he should've produced. "Just don't give up on me," he asks of her. "I'm going to try," says Rachael.

Irregular Cooking Skills

"I want to see the skinny shimmy," Anne tells Daniel, who's managed to "butcher" both of his fillets into shreds. "Chef Anne, I don't shimmy," he says. Later when Anne checks on Daniel again, he's forgotten to season his fish with ground coriander, and she has him do it all over again. "I feel like the wheels are coming off the wagon," she tells him, finding his fish overcooked but his shrimp undercooked.

Time Mismanagement

"You've got less than 15 minutes," Anne reminds Kayla, who still hasn't gotten anything cooking. "How am I going to do this?" Kayla asks herself aloud when her shrimp makes the saute pan with one minute left. "Chef Anne's face said everything," says Kayla when she looks up to see her mentor's look of disappointment. Anne compliments Kayla for at least doing the "hard stuff well."

An Unprecedented Second Chance

On the Blue Team, Ann and Matt end up in the bottom; on the Red Team, it's Daniel and Kayla. Rachael sends home Matt for being below his fellow recruits in skill level. "Home-cooked meals on me," he says to all the ladies watching. Although Anne chooses to send home Kayla, the mentor surprisingly uses her save. "Come get this back," Anne says, holding out Kayla's apron after having taken it from her. "I can't believe this is happening," says Kayla.

Episode 3: Flavorful Exercises in Humiliation

"Your palate is a muscle that you need to learn how to train," Anne tells the recruits as she explains the game of Lick It to Win It. Jeff and Mandy are first up on the Red Team as they try to determine what the sweet puree is. "This tastes like baby food," says Laura on the Blue Team. "I used to feed this crap to my kids all the time," she adds, realizing it's prunes.

Dissension in the Team

"I kind of just blocked her off," says Jake after his partner, Maria, suggests they put ground beef in their jalapeno poppers. "I thought I was a mess in the kitchen," he adds, witnessing his fellow recruit running out of control, yelling ideas aloud. But neither of them know what they're doing, so they end up serving a plate of what Anne likens to something her cat already ate. Jake blames it on miscommunication.

Daniel's Way No Matter What

"I want to make the same exact pico de gallo we learned last week," says Daniel, taking the easy way out in this week's Skill Drill instead of being creative, as the recruits were asked. Paired with Jetta, he utilizes her as his sous chef, ordering her every move. Anne calls out Daniel for phoning it in by copying her recipe, but then Daniel claims they're nachos. "Don't say that I did not warn you," she tells him.

Trying to Break a Self-Conscious Cook

"Beat your meat like you mean it," Anne yells at the recruits in the Main Dish challenge, which has them preparing roulades. "This is pretty awesome," says Matt, excited to be releasing some aggression but showing barely any effort. Anne can't help but chime in and says, "My grandma can beat her meat harder than that." Rachael wonders what's going on with Matt; he just wishes they would leave him alone.

Frazzled and Forgetful

"I can't find the strings," Jetta tells Anne. The recruit doesn't realize she's holding a spool of it in her hand. But that's not the only thing Jetta forgets. "Once again my bad memory got me frazzled," she claims. She rolls her pork loin the wrong way and forgets to sear it in a skillet before putting it in the oven. "Oh, yes," Jetta says, realizing her mistake once Anne points out the pork is too rare to even taste.

A Badly Prepared Component vs. One Missing Entirely

Unfortunately Jake forgot to add rice to the cooking liquid for his pilaf and is unable to plate it. "I love that you're smiling," Rachael tells him during the tasting, but she commends him for his effort. He ends up in the bottom two with fellow recruit Adam, who had overcooked rice and a messy presentation. Rachael sends home Jake. "Leaving now, I have, like, six new recipes," he says proudly.

Taking the Road Home or the Easy Road

Disappointed in the lack of flavor in Daniel's roulade, Anne puts him in the bottom two. "Don't phone it in," she warns him again. It ends up being a choice between sending him or Jetta home, and Anne eliminates Jetta. "I came a really long way," says Jetta. "Now I know you can teach old dogs new tricks," she says before exiting Boot Camp. Anne has a warning for Daniel: "You need to stop taking the easy road."

Episode 2: Looking for the Egg-Zact Match

In a new game, the recruits must crack open eggs to find recipe titles they must match with dishes laid out in front of them. "How in the world did they get the piece of paper in the egg?" Red Team's Jetta asks. Meanwhile Maria, on the Blue Team, has cracked more than 20 eggs just to find one message. The Red Team ends up winning the game.

When Bickering Almost Boils Over

Sharing their pot of water in the Skill Drill challenge, Mandy and Daniel squabble over salting it. "I'm capable of putting salt in the water," says Mandy after Daniel says he wants to do it. "You take the blame, then," Mandy adds after Daniel salts it again. "Or I take the credit," he retorts. "I feel like it's a street fight happening," says Anne, watching it all go down. In the end Daniel's potatoes are underseasoned.

Way In Over Her Head

"The kitchen just drives me nuts," says Maria, unable to keep calm while cooking her egg sandwich. "It's just one thing after the other," she says, unable to follow the recipe. "Calm down, drama queen," Rachael calls out to her. Fortunately Maria plates in time, but unfortunately Rachael can't find the egg when it comes to the tasting. "Oh, my God, did I forget it?" Maria asks, holding her head.

Partying All by Herself

"I think anybody stationed next to me is lucky," says Jetta, but Brittany doesn't agree, especially with Jetta talking to herself. "Fingers in," Jetta keeps reciting, after Anne redlines her finger. "She's in a whole party mood," Rachael comments about Jetta's scatterbrained energy. "I'm so happy I'm not invited to it," Anne replies.

Major Matters of Meat Doneness

"You have seven minutes to get that meatloaf in the oven, or I will not eat it," Rachael yells to her Blue Team. But Buffy's still scrambling to complete her mise en place. Eventually, with some help from Rachael, Buffy has her meatloaf in the oven. "Oh, gross. It's, like, leaking," she says, removing the meatloaf and finding it under temperature.

Not-So-Paltry Poultry Problems

"A few weeks ago I made enchiladas for my wife that made her sick," admits Stephen, worried about making the same dish again. "For some reason Stephen cannot remember anything that happened in the demo," says Anne, coming down to warn him about sanitation. "I'm not going to be able to eat any of it," she yells at him for not using the proper cutting board for his chicken.

Worst Cooks Sort of No More

Unable to taste Buffy's undercooked meatloaf, Rachael sends her home. "I'm going to come back and show Rachael Ray my mayonnaise meatloaf and see what she thinks then," Buffy says after getting the boot. Anne decides to send Stephen home for his contaminated enchiladas. "I do not consider myself the worst cook in America," he says, feeling he made progress.

Episode 1: Not Good Enough to Eat, Even for the Dog

"Is that cat food?" Rachael asks, unsure about what Lester's making for the baseline challenge. "I'm making my tuna surprise," he says, combining canned tuna, mayonnaise and raspberry jam. But when Maria questions the combination, Lester asks, "Are you a critic or what?" When Anne comes by to see how he's doing, Lester admits his dog won't eat the mixture. "I would not eat that," Rachael tells him during the tasting.

Guaranteed Not to Get Dates

Jetta, a self-described toaster-oven cook, presents her "chef surprise" with okra, black beans, sardines and a hashtag garnish of hot dogs, which Adam calls "#Disgusting." The reason for the name? "Put it together and — surprise!" Jetta says. She tells the mentors she'd like to cook for dates, and Anne offers up recruit and bachelor Matt. "Well, I'm not a jaguar — no, cougar," Jetta says, correcting herself. "I think you're more of a Volkswagen," says Anne.

Condiment Queens

"Little miss over here has two bottles of ranch," Anne points out to Rachael as the two watch Buffy try to cook a stuffed chicken dish. "If my best friend were a food, it would be mayonnaise," says Buffy, who uses so much of it in her dish that Rachael names her "Buffy, the Mayo Slayer." Recruits Mandy and Laura are also condiment fans — but of ketchup. Mandy claims it's one of her food groups.

Don't Name Your Food

"I used to have a pet lobster, so I can't look at him right now," Mandy says as she gets ready to cook one for the Main Dish challenge. She names the lobster Larry Jr., after her former pet. "I'm sorry, you're just going for a little Jacuzzi," she says, making a false promise to her crustacean friend. "We had a whole three minutes together," says Mandy. "That is probably longer than Matt had with a girl," she adds.

Bursting Out of His Shell

"I'm going to take this competition seriously," says Cedric, behaving quite the opposite by running around and screaming. "I am so nervous, my body is actually shaking," he says, having trouble removing the meat from the lobster, which he calls "a crab on a diet." His excuse for Anne is that "the crab just didn't want to leave its shell." Cedric and Stephen land in the bottom two, but Cedric is sent home.

Shrimp-Deveining Disasters

"I have this little phobia," Jake says as he's deveining shrimp, recounting a bad experience he had when he accidentally ate a vein. "I'm so worried about serving poop to Rachael that now I'm going to serve her raw shrimp," he says, but luckily it turns out cooked. His teammate Lester, however, cuts himself while deveining and doesn't finish cooking his shrimp. The two land in the bottom, but Lester is sent home.
