The race around the globe continues as the chefs head to Thailand on tonight’s episode of Around the World in 80 Plates. The competition is fierce with only six chefs remaining in the Bravo reality TV series as they partake in the most difficult challenge yet. Between running through fields and entertaining locals at a street food sale the chefs are physically pushed to limits while Chef McDang serves as the local food expert. Keep reading to find out which chefs stay and who goes home!
This is a game of skills and strategy. The winner will receive $150,000 and a brand new Infiniti JX Luxury Crossover. Celebrity chefs Curtis Stone and Cat Cora are the hosts who take viewers on an up close and personal tour of the world. The six remaining chefs include Steve Postal (aka “Nookie”), Nicole Lou, Liz Garrett, John Vermiglio, Jenna Johansen, and Avery Pursell.
The chefs head to Thailand where their adventure begins. Teams of two have been formed: Avery and Jenna; Liz and Nicole; and finally Nookie and John.
The chefs made their way around the exotic Thai markets, ran through fields, battled the blazing sun, planted rice patties in the mud and raced to the finish line. With $10,000 on the line, the teams run as fast as they can but in the end Nookie and John win! Their exceptional ingredient is extra money. It was quite a way for the chefs to spend a day! Later, Jenna and Avery find a local woman who shows them authentic dishes–they say their luck has turned around.
Exhausted from their journey’s the chefs begin to prepare for their main challenge–hitting the streets and selling their authentic food to the locals with Chef McDang serving as the local food expert. Nookie comes up with the idea to serve a juice. Towards the end he adds water into the mix to be able to sell more so they can make more money. Jenna says she can’t believe they would purposely serve bad food just to make a buck.
The local food expert, Chef McDang selects the team made up of Jenna and Avery as the ones with the best food however, Nookie and John sell the most food therefore they win and are sparred from elimination. John is selected as the most valuable chef and wins $5,000 since immunity is no longer a prize.
Now the chefs in the bottom four–Jenna, Avery, Liz and Nicole–must reveal who they think should go home. John is asked to make the final decision and breaks the tie between Liz and Jenna. He decides to eliminate Jenna from the competition.
