The Team Challenge today has the contestants travelling to the beautiful Great Ocean Road. They will be cooking a banquet for food producers in the region.
As Power Apron goddess, Tracy gets to pick her team first. It’s an all-star team with Emelia, Sarah, Jamie and Ben are her teammates. Ben makes the observation that the best team usually doesn’t win these things and if that happens to them today, he’s in trouble.
Laura’s the other team captain; Amy, Soul Patch, Brent and Renae are her crack squad.
So the big news is that they are all safe this week. No eliminations. Way to keep stretching out the show, 10. Tracy gets to sit out the challenge because she won something. I can’t remember what.
The winning team from today’s challenge will join Tracy in the Immunity fight. It’s a charity lunch for Starlight Children’s Foundation. As usual, the team that raises the most money, wins.
When Curtis Stone walks through the doors, Laura’s jaw drops. She’s got a major crush on the man.
The hopefuls meet Marco and the judges on a typically cold and bleak Melbourne day on the banks of the Yarra. Gary cuts a line through the middle of the group to quickly designate the teams. Emelia and Renae will lead.
There’s a British theme today, cooking in Taxi Kitchen at Federation Square. The teams each need to prepare two entrees, two mains and a dessert for 60 diners each. Marco will run the pass. He rallies the troops before service and gives another epic speech.
