  • Sesame Street + Target = lackluster episode

    6.0
    One of the weakest episodes so far this season. The producer's idea of having the Sesame Street muppets involved in the quickfire challenge was a misfire. Padma, now that she has a kid, seemed to enjoy it. I didn't. Making cookies ???? Cmon.



    The Target challenge was slightly better. The whole thing happened at 3:30am. They had to only use cooking and food items found inside the store. That was a nice twist. Given what they had to work with, most of the dishes looked decent. But nothing that made me hungry. For me that's a sign of a good episode, that the food prepared looks great.



    What also was missing was the warm, beautiful presence of Gail Simmons. She's my favorite judge. She's so pretty.moreless
