Episode 1: Tyler Won't Own Up

"I've seen it on TV," says Kortni of her baked potato microwaved in a bag, the dish she made for the team selection challenge. "You did it in a truck," she says, turning to Tyler, who won't admit to the cooking faux pas. "She really belongs on Tyler's team," says Anne. And indeed, Tyler chooses Kortni for his team.

Shaping Up for Defeat

David, who admits that even his dog won't eat his cooking, offers a meatloaf shaped like a teddy bear as his best dish. "This is without a question, hands down, the worst meatloaf I've ever had in my entire life," Tyler tells him. David ends up on the Red Team.

Scattered and Perplexed

"This recipe has all this multitasking," worries Christina, who's attempting to replicate Anne's pan-seared chicken breast in the Main Dish challenge but ends up redoing multiple components. "It's just utter chaos," she says. "I feel like Christina gets overwhelmed easily," says Anne, who sends her home.

Unintuitive Creativity

"I let my intuition guide me," says Jason, wanting to make gravy out of "potato residue" instead of following Tyler's chateaubriand recipe exactly. He ends up not serving a sauce. "It's the first week of Boot Camp. I don't think you have any cooking intuition whatsoever," Tyler rebuts him. Jason is ultimately sent home.

Episode 2: Playing the Game for an Advantage

"I wish I would have brought some flash cards to study," says Kortni, realizing she and her teammates will have to take a trivia quiz in order to earn a demo from their team leader. Unfortunately the Blue Team earns just two demo steps for their cobb salad. The Red Team earns four demos for their nicoise salad.

Putting On a Show in the Kitchen

Despite being able to see only a partial demo of the cobb salad, Sarah feels confident she'll do well, but her actions definitely don't back it up, especially when she talks to herself. "Sarah is real interesting," Tyler says while watching her cook. "I think there's a 10-ring circus going on in that head of hers."

Putting Their Skills to the Test

"I don't care if it takes all of their time," says Tyler. "They are gonna get their knife cuts right." Both teams get tested on their prep skills during the Main Dish challenge, but Sharif manages to cut himself three times. Despite being in the bottom two with Kortni, both are safe because Stephanie leaves due to illness.

Slow and Steady Doesn't Always Win the Race

"Susie and David — I mean, they're sort of in a dead-heat race for last place," says Anne. "I'm gonna take these shrimp home and name them," says David, running out of time during the paella challenge to cook them. Both recruits end up in the bottom, but Susie gets eliminated for her lack of time management.

Episode 3: Creative Crepes to the Extreme

"This is kind of like modern art," says Anne, holding upside down a dish of crepes that have stuck to the plate from overcooked caramel. After challenging the recruits to make crepes for their Skill Drill challenge, Tyler and Anne blind-tasted the results, and ultimately choose Sharif's creation as the winning dish.

Coaching from the Sidelines

"I have no idea how I'm going to make an Indian taco unless there's going to be some Indian lady standing next to me," says David during the Main Dish international taco challenge. Luckily, though, Anne's there to whip him into shape after he almost gives up. She reminds him, "You can do this!"

When Spices Go Wrong

"I don't really know anything about Indian spices," says Mike, who's trying to find one to season his tacos. "There's some mango powder, and I've heard of mangoes," he concludes. Unfortunately, the judges dislike his dish because of the spice's "objectionable mouthfeel," says Anne. Ultimately, he's sent home.

Giving Up on the Competition

"You just browned sausage," Anne tells Michael about his Greek taco, finding it just "fine." She continues: "I think you could have put a little more effort out on this," feeling he wasn't putting "100 percent" into the challenge any longer. In the end magician Michael "Six" exits the competition.

Episode 4: Facing Pre-Game Day Jitters

"It's liquid, hot lava that could blind, burn and scar you," says Sarah upon learning the Skill Drill will involve deep-frying popular game-day dishes. That's not even her biggest phobia — she hates condiments, so making ranch dressing is an exercise in futility. "Condiments are just part of life," Tyler tells her.

Flying In Under the Radar

"I just don't understand where you come from," Anne tells David after hearing he's never eaten raw onions or tomatoes. "I think you were just dropped down here in, like, an egg." When it comes to making squid-ink pasta from scratch in the Main Dish challenge, Anne can't help but laugh at his attempts.

From a Galaxy Far Too Wide

"Look at Kortni's well," Anne says with a laugh upon seeing Tyler's recruit making pasta. "She wants to make sure that nothing spills out," says Tyler. Kortni ends up bringing together her "galaxy," as Tyler calls it, but she forgets to add the ink in time, and runs out of time to make her sauce. She ends up getting eliminated.

Done In by Pasta-Making Problems

"It isn't until you get an up-close look at that pasta that you think there's something wrong with it," says David, whose pasta stuck together because he forgot to flour it. Anne finds the dish tasty but the pasta "inedible," and since the challenge was to make pasta, David has failed and he's eliminated.

Episode 5: Breakfast Trials and Tribulations

"Circles don't have edges," Tyler reminds Genique as he sees her having trouble trimming the brioche loaf into a cylinder for the French toast roast recipe in the Skill Drill challenge. "This shouldn't be this hard," complains Genique as she's on her second attempt, wanting to please her coach.

You Learn Something New Every Day

"I cannot live without this anymore," says Leo as he uses a vegetable peeler for the first time while cooking his poached egg and pancake dishes. At first he was afraid to multitask the multiple components in the breakfast challenge, but he pulls it off. Despite being in the bottom two, Leo is safe.

One Undercooked Dish Outweighs the Other

"My hair is super-flammable," Sarah informs Tyler as he shows her how to flambe a sauce for the creamed spinach, a component of the Blue Team's dinner. Unfortunately, Sarah's undercooked cake puts her in the bottom two along with Sharif, who undercooked his pork roast, but in the end he goes home.

Talk the Talk Only If You Can Walk the Walk

"I took on the most-difficult part of our challenge because I believe I'm the strongest on our team," says Norman, who's cooking braised chicken thighs. But Anne reprimands him for not browning them enough: "I should not at this point have to go back and tell you to brown food." In the end his dish sends him home.

Episode 6: Pasta from the Past

The remaining recruits must remake their signature dishes from Day 1, but this time with recipes provided by their mentors. Tyler has Sarah make her dish with fresh pasta. "Making pasta is my new passion," says Sarah, but her dough comes out sticky. Luckily, she knows to add flour, which impresses Tyler.

"Think Like a Cook and Act Like a Cook"

When it comes to making version 2.0 of her "Pita Surprise," Kristen makes expert dough, but misreads the meatball recipe, messing up the mixture. Noticing her error, she's able to fix the dish before time is up. "Without anyone telling you, you saved yourself," Anne tells her, proud to see her think like a cook.

Here, Fishy, Fishy

When it comes to cooking a fish stew in the family dinner challenge, Leo loses focus, and it isn't his first time doing so. "You're starting to do the crazy thing," Anne warns him, but Leo lets the pressure get to him, forgetting to plate the fish, and he's sent home. Kristen makes it to the finale.

When Time Runs Out

Unfortunately, time management was Sarah's weakest skill. Her rib eye ends up undercooked, while two out of her three dishes are served without fries. In the end, Tyler eliminates her. "I tried my best, and I learned something," says Sarah of her time on the show. Genique goes on to the finale.

Episode 7: Too Close for Comfort

In the finale, Kristen and Genique cook their three-course meals in the kitchen of the Monarch Room with only moral support from their mentors. "Three feet, dude. Three feet," Anne points out the rules to Tyler, who's hovering over Genique just as she unfortunately burns her arm while pureeing cauliflower soup.

Back in the Winner's Circle

"Thank you for liking my food," says Kristen, hearing that the three culinary experts found her dishes the best. "No one ever liked my food." She leaves with $25,000. "I'm just so happy and proud for her and of her," says Anne, who takes home her fourth win. Neither Kristen nor Genique is among America's worst cooks anymore.
