Shopping gets underway. Stefan wants to make a gooseberry tuna sashimi, but Sheldon has snatched up all the fresh tuna at the fish counter. He heads over to the frozen section. John is horrified: "This is 'Top Chef,' who uses frozen fish?"

Back at the apartment, John and Stefan spar half-heartedly over frozen fish-gate, holding up L-signs to their respective foreheads. Splayed out on the couch, Stefan claims he will win as he snuggles up against Kristen's hip. Oh, Kristen. Sweet, young Kristen. You will regret this on-camera flirtation later in life, I assure you.

The next morning, the crew heads to Remlinger Farm and sprints to a gazebo, which will serve as their kitchen. Danyele seems to be coming out of her shell a bit, as she loses patience and barks at the team to make room so she can have a workspace.

Bart asks for a blender and spies one near John. John claims he's using it. He says this as he's bent over unpacking something. "No, you're not," Bart points out, and goes for the blender. John shrieks at him and Bart stomps off, F-bombs dropping left and right. "Do I hear blending? No."

Josh starts his blender as John and Danyele work nearby and the lid flies off, spraying them all with steaming white hot pain. Quote of episode, as Danyele lifts a tray of crostini over Josh, smirking: "Over your head, d---head."

Kristen, who is unopposed, explains why she wants to win: With $10,000 she could travel to Korea. She was given up by her birth mother there when she was four months old, and was then adopted by a U.S. family. She wants to see where she came from. You can't not root for her after seeing her baby and family photos.

Tom sidles up to the gazebo to check in on everyone. He seems less interested in learning about the dishes and more in encouraging the smack talking. It takes John less than 5 seconds to call out Stefan on his frozen tuna.

"And here comes that bus, and he just got thrown underneath it!," Tom laughs.

John claims he's not upset that the tuna was frozen, but that it was not sustainable. So that's an issue, but the 57,000 yards of aluminum foil that was wasted in the Quickfire didn't ruffle your feathers? "Whiny little b----," Stefan mutters. Agreed.

Micah shares that his daughters are named Sage and Saffron, as he wanted to name them something culinary, but that Cayenne and Cinnamon sounded like stripper names. He sure dodged that bullet. I think?

As the Berry Festival-goers approach, Josie's sushi rolls are not rolled. She's going to have to roll to order. The judges join the festival (props to Gail for her strawberry-colored ensemble) and commence tasting each berry concoction.

When they arrive at Josie's tent, she starts babbling and filling the silence as she tries to actually prepare her dish. The judges wait. Her goofy chatter leaves Stephanie wondering, "Is she high?" "Uh, yeah." Tom responds. They continue to listen to her describe the dish as she finally gets some food plated.

Padma loves Lizzies raspberry pork dish, as does Stephanie. Josie's doesn't highlight the raspberry enough, and Tom seems truly angry when he comments that, for her, "putting on a show is more important than making good food." He's also questioning her decision to pair a spring roll with mayonnaise. The festival guests voice their annoyance at having to wait for Josie's food, and those that do aren't thrilled.

They love Stefan's crudo, but it needs more gooseberry (frozen tuna be damned!). John's gazpacho falls flat, the chorizo overpowers his dish which one guest likens to "cheeseburger soup." And not in a good way.

As service winds down, John and Stefan's playful sparring is growing a bit more barbed. John won't let a single guest go by without pointing out to them that they're eating frozen salmon. Stefan says that John's soup is so bad that "I wouldn't flush my poop with it."

Coming back to the stew room, things go south quick. The John and Stefan show continues to the point of Stefan standing up and requesting that John fellate him, in a much less polite way. It's really getting gross and I am altogether tired of watching both of them. It's not funny or amusing, just a chore to watch.

Thankfully, Padma walks in to call back John, Josie, Micah, Bart, and Danyele. The guests voted them as the losers of each battle, and the judges agreed with each match-up.

Micah is criticized for his unevenly cooked biscuit, Josie for her silly showmanship and heavy summer roll. Gail loved Bart's soup but the salmon he included didn't need to be there.

Danyele admits she could hear people crunching into her overly crusted croustade. You can see how frustrated Tom is with her performance as he tells her how much her concept wowed him but how the execution was only "eh."

John's gazpacho was ruined by the grainy, minced chorizo. He tells the judges he's "not making excuses, but the kitchen was a little crazy." Tom throws him an incredulous look, since he did actually just make an excuse.

Padma asks for the top five to come back to Judge's Table. Stephanie announces the winning dish, which she says they wouldn't want to change a thing about: Kristen, for her matcha goat milk custard with olive oil macerated tayberries. Hooray! Double win, $10,000, and a trip to your homeland. What a sweet ending.

On to the sour side of things: For her chicken pine nut terrine with blueberry mostarda, Danyele is asked to pack her knives and go. I am so disappointed, she seemed like she had just gotten her sea legs and she's such a cutie patootie.

Josh seems the most saddened by her loss. In a surprising sweet moment, he hugs her tight and whispers, "You be good." she responds, "Kick their asses." We’ll miss you, red.

Immediately thereafter, Stefan and Josie (with full wine glasses in hand) start getting into it, over what I'm not entirely sure, as the entire conversation is bleeped out. Holy cow, this ego sword fighting is getting old, and we have 10 chefs left to go. Ugh.

Next week: The gang cooks up a meal for the Rat City Roller Girls. And yes, there's Padma on roller skates. I could not be more excited.
