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. Meanwhile, Tom made the audience crave his Citrus Marmalade (even on yuck-factor foods like brussels sprouts and chicken livers) but the taste made Bob shudder, "He made me want to buy 12 jars…but I would have returned them all." 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.

TELL US: What's you, in a jar?
