Meanwhile, Spike and his family work to get everything in order to open the doors of Good Stuff Crystal City. Sadly, they discover that none of their staff members know how to cook their signature burgers! After a crash course, the private kick-off party goes off without a hitch.

In Los Angeles, Fabio enjoys time with his life coach’s family but first he makes a shocking discovery. While talking to his life coach, Fabio reveals that when he was 22 years-old he took a vacation and three day into it, he got word that his best friend died.

There’s no rest for the weary as the former cheftestants are summoned one last time to battle it out in a Quickfire-style cook-off for First Lady Michelle Obama in Dallas.

The red team is made up of Grayson and Paul; the white team consists of Jen and Spike; and the blue team has Fabio and Richard. Dallas Cowboys Miles Austin and DeMarcus Ware also show up to help entertain the kids! In the end, Mrs. Obama selects the red, white and blue teams as the winning teams–everybody wins!
