A Stack of Sabotage

A pancake breakfast — a seemingly simple enough dish for four professional chefs to make — is on the docket in Round 1 of the second heat of the tournament, but even Superstars aren't immune to sabotages. Chef Nadia paid a whopping $5,000 to saddle Chefs Justin, Brian and Marcel with inferior mixing and cooking vessels: a Bundt pan, a colander and a funnel, respectively.

High Stakes

For Chef Nadia, making pancakes sans dairy is enough of a challenge — she forgot to pick up milk and eggs from the pantry — but it soon gets worse, as she must prep atop a super-high worktable. "This would be fine for me, but then I'm taller than you," Alton jokes with Chef Nadia, who admits the table is "horrible."

Salesman Warner

Although he's run into trouble with cooking his pancakes in the Bundt pan, Chef Justin's proud to admit, "I know how to sell stuff," so he doesn't hesitate to pitch his dish as "pancakes disguised as eggs" to judge Jet. "I really like your pitch," Jet tells him with a smile, adding, "The pancake itself has nice flavor."

Challenge, Overcome

"I'm putting the funnel directly on the burner as, like, a saute pan. Totally works," Chef Marcel says optimistically of his challenge. He manages to give Jet a wow-worthy plate, and the judge commends him, "My only issue here is I wish I had a few more pancakes."
