Canned Food: Impossible

"For your group test this week you will be cooking without your mentors," Ted tells the five remaining cooks. But they won't be entirely without help, as Robert Irvine will be coaching all of them. "He is one tough dude," worries Sherri. Ted then reveals that the cooks must use mystery canned foods in their dishes.

Deciding Not to Ham Up the Ham

"August, I think you're losing that canned ham," says Sharon, who uses her advantage from last week to swap out her canned salmon. Robert recommends a binder for her ham rillettes: "Take a potato to almost make a cake." But Sharon ignores his advice, using bread and orange juice to bind it instead.

What You See Is What You Get

"I'm glad I actually came here," says Robert, pressing his SOS button upon smelling burning bread from Team Alex. He notices Sherri's chowder is too thin and shows her how to thicken it. "Chef Irvine is intense," says August, who compares him to Alex and adds, "I appreciate the no-BS approach."

Revolting Reactions

"So are you all wondering who the special guest judges will be?" Ted asks the mentors. He then reveals that they will be the judges and they'll be judging blind. "What did we do wrong?" says Bobby, because any of them could inadvertently send a home cook to the elimination test. "What did they put in it, soap?" says Bobby after spitting out the rillettes.
