There was some great corporate synergy for the quickfire where Kelly Clarkson was the guest judge. The challenge promoted the Universal film, Trolls World Tour, which the singer stars in. Laid in front of the chefs were various ingredients sorted into six colors; each representing the six Troll worlds. They had to use at least one ingredient from each color to make a harmonious dish. In the elimination challenge, the contestants were divided into two teams and were to make a six-course progressive menu. The catch was it would be an entirely vegetarian meal and they would do their shopping at the Santa Monica farmer’s market.
Melissa claims the top spot this week after earning her second elimination win. Rustic chef, Lisa, found herself eliminated for unevenly cooked brussels sprouts but at least she won her head to head in Last Chance Kitchen to finally send Joe packing for good. Most of the movement occurred at the top and bottom of the Power Rankings with the middle mainly staying intact.
