In order to gain an advantage, the team members had to be the first to sell $200 of their signature dish on the Santa Monica Pier. "We're go-getters, we're hustlers, we're salesman," Adam says of himself and Benny. They sell two for $12.
After Spice It Up won the challenge, the guys had to stop selling. With $176 plus $66 from Tyler for their seed money, the Diso's team packs it up and heads to the first stop on the route, Lake Havasu City, Ariz.
Late to get into town, the team notices many of the other teams have great locations already staked. They end up finding a spot in a park. "We just need to start selling," says Adam, on the lookout for customers.
"We're coming out swinging today," Adam tells his teammates as they get ready for their second day in Lake Havasu City. Then Tyler calls with a Truck Stop challenge. The teams now must sell fish and chips. The first team to sell 20 dishes will get an additional $500.
Deciding not to go shopping, but to instead use the produce they already have, the team saves on time. "Orders are just flying out the window," says Danamarie after they open. Tyler calls to let everyone know Diso's has won the challenge.
Moving on to Flagstaff and then Sedona, the Diso's team has no problem talking up its product, but customers don't seem to be that interested. "They're trickling in, steady to below average," says Adam.
Despite making the second-most sales in the Truck Stop challenge, the team makes the least sales overall, and does not move on to Santa Fe, N.M. "I didn't expect to go home this early," says Danamarie.
