I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere, but I haven't had my coffee yet.
Rachel and Guy meet with their teams. Coolio immediately declares he knows exactly what he's making - another dish from his childhood - "soul rolls," basically ghetto eggrolls made with ground meat and cheese. But Coolio is crazy so he's talking about using alligator meat and making two different dipping sauces. Riiiiight. There's only 90 minutes to cook, dude. Teammate FatOne is far more sane and taking on something that he can make in his sleep - meatballs - and serving them as sliders. The two of them will work together on the bacon-wrapped shrimp skewers with chipotle bbq sauce that are suggested by Guy.
I know, I know - there's another joke in there somewhere. Coffee.
Over on the boys' side, Coolio is over-confident about his dish, and talks a lot about "coagulating" the flavors. He used that word last week, too. Cool, baby, it's not blood. He does a test eggroll and discovers that his frying oil is crazy hot, burning his creation in ten seconds flat. So while Coolio's busy turning down the heat, draining and replacing oil, poor FatOne is working on both his own meatballs (come on, you can think of a joke yourself) and working on the bacon for the shrimp dish.
Meanwhile, Coolio and FatOne are getting off to a slow start. While they're struggling to get enough portions of food made, Taylor attempts to take advantage of the situation by luring Team Guy's hungry crowd over to Team Rachel's truck. FatOne tops her by getting out a megaphone and urging the crowd to come back. Eventually Coolio and FatOne get their shit together and prepare enough food. Rachel and Guy love all three of their dishes, the soul roll, the meatball slider, and the bacon-wrapped shrimp.
While the diners are dining, the celebs hand out comment cards and beg for votes. Team Guy must have begged nicely, because back in the kitchen, it is announced that they have won the challenge. This means that two members of Team Rachel have to do battle to see who gets to stay and who gets sent home. LDP's sliders were well-received, so he is safe, leaving Taylor and Summer to duke it out.
Guy and Rachel taste the dishes and seem to be fairly pleased with both, but in the end, Taylor's dish wins out once again. This gal has 9 lives! Summer goes home, leaving each team with only two members.
Next week - a double elimination! Only one member of each team can go to the finale. I'm guessing it will be Coolio and LDP, but who the heck knows. The way Taylor's been going, she might end up the accidental winner.
