top_chef_logo_lgOn the newest episode of Top Chef All-Stars, they did things a little differently — no Quickfire Challenge! Egad! Instead, they had to split up into four teams of three, get on boats and head out to Montauk to fish for their dinner. Well, they had to fish for the dinner they’d be cooking for the 200 people at that night’s beach party/Elimination Challenge.

Fish jokes, jackassery, bad choices in sunglasses and “rod” innuendos ensued. The jokes literally wrote themselves.

Fabio, Blais and Marcel were teamed up and decided to do only one dish between the three of them. To make things worse, the dish was the equivalent of wearing heavy eye makeup with bright red lipstick: just too much going on. Antonia and Tiffani were stuck with Jamie, which they were so enthused about (can you hear the sarcasm?), and as well, knew she would land them on the chopping block. Maybe Jamie should’ve found another way to not cook again, as that may have saved her team. The other teams consisted of Tre, Carla and Angry Dale, and Jersey Mike, Angelo and Tiffany D. (who cooked considerably better food).

Carla took the win for her playful take on New York bagel and lox with her smoked blue fish wrap with picked watermelon rind, radishes shallots and bagel croutons. The judges also enjoyed Dale’s fish tacos, as they had an ample amount of fish in them and were perfect for the beach party setting. If Antonia’s teammates’ dishes wouldn’t have been so abominable, her team would have been on top and she would’ve taken the win for her spicy open-faced Po’ Boy sandwich.

I don’t have too much else to say about this episode because, A. it wasn’t that exciting, and B. I’ve already voiced most of my opinions in the podcast (hint, hint).
