Kids' Choice, Round 1: Brunch and a Red Light Special

Incorporating raisins into their brunch dishes wasn't too difficult for the families. But the Landefelds' frittata was "just so dense," according to Melissa, and Mandy admitted she forgot the cream. Drew's fruit salad was a success, but it wasn't enough to keep the family from checking out at the end of Round 1.

Kids' Choice, Round 2: Comfort Meal on a Budget

Guy gave the families $9.52 and a flier of coupons in Round 2. Midway through, he surprised them with a time-out for their lead cooks. Despite all the challenges, the Binbek family created tasty fajitas, but the judges were disappointed that they didn't make the most of their coupons, and sent the family to the checkout lane.

Kids' Choice, Round 3: Five-Star Dinner and a Station Swap

Guy left it up to the kids to decide what to shop for, but the families had to do it without carts. Little did they know a station swap would follow. The Murphy family was left cooking a filet mignon dish, which got great judges' reviews, but the Lavin family's salmon dish won "with an inventive crust," according to Aarti.

Kids' Choice Winners: The Lavin Family

The Lavins advanced to the shopping spree with their final-round dish. Lori, Michael and Andrew raced through the aisles, picking up seven out of the 10 items to win $14,000. "I am really proud of my family," says Lori. The family plans to put the money toward Andrew's college fund.

Food Feud, Round 1: Pasta Aisle Down

Running into the aisles to create their best noodle dish, the families discover it's an Aisle Down challenge. Although the Thurstons' raw zucchini noodles are a welcome dish since it's "like pasta," as Catherine McCord says, the judges still find it lacks seasoning. Ernistine, Chanee and Delon check out.

Food Feud, Round 2: Desserts from the Middle

With just the middle aisles to utilize for their dessert in the Meals from the Middle challenge, Omar comes up with two different ideas, before abandoning both for chocolate chimichangas. Troy Johnson calls it "a glorified churro," but the judges agree that it didn't involve enough cooking. The Vera family checks out.

Food Feud, Round 3: Family Meal with a Slim Margin

Even with a half-pound extra advantage in the Watch Your Weight challenge, Dave, Patrick and Linda Casey's fish tacos were outdone by the Parrishes' spiced lamb keftas. "Where this really falls in my opinion," Guy tells the Caseys, is that "the other team did just a little bit better."

Food Feud Winners: The Parrish Family

Brothers Bobby and Scott and Bobby's wife, Dessi, advance to the shopping spree, where they net $18,000 in total. "Winning ... after all that work and all that we want to do with the money," says Bobby, "it really means everything." The Parrishes plan to use the money to help their mom, who suffers from MS.

Sibling Rivalry, Round 1: Five-Ingredient Family Feast

Given the challenge of making a family feast using just five ingredients or fewer, the Testa sisters decided to make chicken Marsala with risotto, which they present as "al dente." Unfortunately, the judges don't agree with their preference, Richard Blais calling it "lazy," and the three check out.

Sibling Rivalry, Round 2: Sticking to the Grocery List

Guy asks for "something stuffed" in the next round, which requires the families to stick to his specific list. The judges love the flavor of the Lozas' chile rellenos, Richard calling the crumbled-potato-chip topping a "genius move," but Troy Johnson finds the stuffing "runny" and the Lozas check out.

Sibling Rivalry, Round 3: Upscale Dinner with Limitations

In a game of Food Wheel, Guy spins for New York strip steak and a $7.15 budget, requesting an upscale dinner. To pair with the steak, the Frasers create a blue cheese mac, which Aarti Sequeira finds surprisingly good but misses "some relief from the fat." But Troy finds a chunk of raw garlic, which puts them in the red.

Sibling Rivalry Winners: The Grbic Family

The Grbic siblings' steak dish advances them to the shopping spree. Erna, Senada and Ermin get hung up in aisle 7 but walk away with $10,000 in total. "We owe our parents our lives," says Senada, planning to gift them the team's winnings to show "we really appreciate everything that they've done for us."

Kids Rule, Round 1: Breakfast with a Weight Limit

In a Watch Your Weight challenge, the families had to cook breakfast with items weighing under five pounds. The Roberts' sweet-and-savory approach of French toast and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon was found to have an "underdeveloped" crust by judge Troy Johnson, and the family checked out.

Kids Rule, Round 2: Hot Lunch to the Letter

In an ABC challenge that forced the families to shop for items that began with the letter R, all the families chose rib-eye steaks. But the Robertson family's choice of using packaged rice to cut down on cook time put their dish in the bottom and the family in the checkout lane.

Kids Rule, Round 3: Sunday Supper Surprise

In a Food Wheel challenge, the families had to use hot dogs and red ingredients, but only the kids were allowed to shop. Midway through cooking, a time-out barred the dads from verbal communication. In the end, the Bruno family's dish lost by the "thinnest of margins," according to judge Richard Blais.

Kids Rule Winners: The Chiovera Family

The Chioveras advanced to the shopping spree with their final-round dish. Xavier, Giuseppe and dad Joe raced through the aisles, picking up seven out of the 10 items to win $14,000. "This is something we'll remember forever," said Joe.
