Catfished

Boot Camp started out with a bang this season with some of the most ambitious recruits ever. "A whole fish?" Bobby asked with a worrisome tone as Idriss carried a whole catfish to his station.

Pray for Sebastian

Adrian made an equally ambitious choice, grabbing a live lobster for the baseline challenge. Luckily for the lobster, Father Adam said a short prayer before Adrian dunked him into a pot of boiling water.

Fruity Florentine

Opera singer Jonathan attempted to make Chicken Florentine and a fruit tart. "Have I had these things at restaurants? You bet," he exclaimed. "Have I made them? Absolutely not."

Chinese Catastrophe

College student Sadie tried her hand at making Chinese food. "It'll be, like, lo mien noodles, meatballs and orange chicken," she explained to Anne. "Then I'm gonna make a rice, a vegetable. We'll see how it goes."

Marker Time

It wouldn't be the Baseline Challenge without Anne breaking out her infamous red marker.

Ashy Potatoes

During the Main Dish challenge, Gina was just trying to cook her potatoes when her station went up in flames. "I'm too young to die like this," she said.

Bobby to the Rescue

Luckily for Gina, Bobby rushed in, put out the fire and saved Boot Camp from burning to the ground.
