  • Quotes

    • Adam: (about the main challenge) It's gonna be a cooking challenge, and it's probably gonna be a big one. I'm going against Aaron and Lisa, (laughs) and I know what the Vegas odds-makers are saying about that.

    • (About making his own meat smoker.)
      Adam: I mean, it's definitely a risk, but… if I gotta go down, I gotta go down smoking.

    • (Lisa has flubbed another line high in the wine tower.)
      Guy Fieri: You're kinda burnin' daylight there, sunshine, let's come on down.
