Fast and Frenzied

"Being on Chopped ... it's like doing a dive blindfolded," says Greg, who can't seem to find a normal pace. He decides to go an Asian route and make an alligator teriyaki. He uses the green juice in the sauce along with soy. Unfortunately Geoffrey finds the salt level high, but otherwise appreciates Greg's approach.

Creative Confidence

"No bad luck against the other athletes, but I think I'm the best cook here," says Charles. He's breaded the alligator and prepared them in a Buffalo wing style. "You looked pretty confident," Ted points out. Charles admits to having cooked for many other players. The judges like everything about the dish except for the presentation.
