This week, the five remaining contestants were presented with quite the challenge: cooking for a kids’ party. Everyone knows that children are not only the pickiest eaters, but also the most honest critics. With only Johnny and Dean left on Team Guy, they were at a definite disadvantage. Team Rachael chose the girl’s birthday party, while Team Guy got the boy’s, and the teams got to work. Each celebrity had to make one sweet and one savoury dish (made up of 30 servings each).
The results were the most surprising of the season: the teams had tied. So rather than two members of one team competing against each other in the blind taste challenge, the celebrities behind the weakest dish on each team would compete in a last minute cook-off. This put Johnny (because of his chicken fries) and Carnie (due to her bland Sloppy Joes) against each other, with only 10 minutes to make a hot dog. Johnny went gourmet and created a crumbled sausage, while Carnie made an old fashioned hot dog with bacon and cheese. Carnie’s traditional dish beat out Johnny’s interpretation and Johnny was sent home, leaving Dean to carry Team Guy alone.
