Emily was a perfect fit for Team Alton. She summed up the teams at the beginning of the season: "If this were high school, Team Alton would be the nerds, Team Bobby the jocks and Team Giada, I'm thinking cheerleaders." She was proud to be grouped with Alton's brainy, nerdy crew.
In the Fashion Week challenge, Emily removed her silver dome to find a dish in desperate need of a makeover: ham steak with pineapple and maraschino cherries. Sure enough, she was able to make it Retro Rad. "This challenge was tailor-made for Alton's team," Bob said. "They're all so brainy and fun."
In the next challenge, Team Alton knew they had to bring it. Emily made a dessert panini for their Italian-themed food-court kiosk. She schmoozed with the diners while teammates Martie and Justin scrambled to fry their dishes. "She's smart when she describes and she's smart in her culinary ideas," said Bob.
