  • Quotes

    • Ariane: (after asking everyone's opinion of her dessert) If I go under, you're all going to hear it!

    • Jamie: (on Jill's decision to use Ostrich eggs in her quiche) I think there's a difference between playing it safe, and playing it ridiculous, and I think that's playing it a little ridiculous.

    • Fabio: You cannot beat the American hot dog playing his own game! Do something else!

    • Ariane: I don't even care what they taste like, I just want two hot dogs done and in the bun.

    • Fabio: (referring to the first Challenge) I'm fine with Stefan be picked the winner, he made a good dish. In Italian they say, doesn't matter how many dragon you kill, it's who take home the princess! You know, so, I'll go for the princess.

  • Notes

    • In the bonus clips at Bravo's website, more of Jeff's leadership skills are displayed. When time was ticking down to the final seconds during prep, Ariane still didn't have everything in the refrigerator, and anything that didn't make it inside in time would not be sent to the restaurant. Jeff, seeing her problem, rallied the troops with a shout of "Cougar needs help!", and everyone came running to make sure all her product got inside in time.
