During this week's camera challenge, Susie asked the finalists to create a food that was "you in a jar." Some finalists had more success than others cramming themselves into said jar. Brad's 3-Onion Cherry Jam shined at the judges' table, but he forgot to flash his million-dollar smile for the Venice Beach crowd.

And poor Serena! Before her big comeback, the granddaughter of the "patron saint of marinara sauce" botched her bottled Amatriciana sauce and gave a nerve-filled presentation.
