  • Episode Description
  • Twelve new finalists make their way to the Los Angeles kitchen and meet their mentors. Tonight is about introductions. They will be introduced to the camera, they will introduce themselves to the committee with their first dishes and pitch tapes, and they will introduce themselves to the newest element of the competition—and perhaps the most controversial ever, since it depends on the dubious taste of the public—a focus group made up of Food Network viewers.Mentor Challenge: 30-second Pitch TapeStar Challenge: Cook an Unforgettable Dish Using a Potato Then Present It to the Selection Committee and Focus Groupmoreless

    • (Danushka finishes the first take of her pitch.)
      Bobby: You looked like you were a little bit in pain.
      Danushka: Pain?
      Bobby: Yeah, because you weren't smiling.
      Giada: Actually, it seems a little angry
      Danushka: People always say I look angry. My mom said I came out of the womb looking like I was pissed off. I was, like, "I probably was."

    • (After watching Daniela flub both her takes.)
      Rodney: Daniela was a bit of a dud. I mean, you can be hot as hell, but you gotta still have your stuff together.

    • Bob: (about Danushka) She seems to me like the supporting character in a comedy who would be at the bar sipping martinis, throwing off witticisms. I'm not sure she's the star of the show.
