Episode 8: Focusing and Refocusing on the Prize

"There's $25,000 on the line and my reputation," Lorraine reminds Carla before sending her recruit off to prep three desserts for the finale. "You've got to stay nice and calm for me," Carla tells her mentor. But as soon as Carla starts to lose focus, Lorraine snaps her back. "I never did this much work in my whole entire life," Carla jokes as she runs around the kitchen. "You better run," Lorraine tells her. "I need a double — somebody skinny," Carla wails.

Tough Love for a Reason

Samantha realizes it's a lot to pull off three desserts. "It's going to be long and painful and lots of this cute bald man yelling in my ear," she says. All the while, Duff is reminding her of all the steps and shortcuts she's forgetting to take while prepping her recipes. "If there's too much to do on day two, Sam's going to lose it," Duff says, purposely being hard on his recruit now so he can keep her calm the following day.

"Flavor Diva" but Decorating Disaster

Carla may be great with flavor, but Lorraine knows decorating is a different story. She keeps directing Carla on how to frost the rainbow cake. "Just on the edges," says Lorraine. "I've said it three times." But when it comes to Carla covering it with fondant, it goes all wrong. "These hands were not made for no fondue-ant," says Carla. When it tears, they have no choice but to scrap it. "Now you've given yourself loads of work to do tomorrow," Lorraine says, disappointedly.

Plenty of Pie Problems

"I'm feeling like the champion of all champions today," says Carla on finale day. Samantha talks some smack, though. "I'm going to beat the brakes off of Carla so I can go, 'Ka-pow!" she says. But pretty soon problems arise: After whipping up mascarpone to top her chocolate pie, Samantha finds some plastic in the cream. And Carla has trouble piping meringue onto her lemon pie. "It's really hard to keep these peaks stiff," says Carla. "They look like stiff something elses."
