Last week, we saw the finale of  Restaurant Wars... and the finale of Pablo & Nini in the competition. We also saw two chefs - Nini and Brother - battle it out to see who will graduate to the competition in the Last Chance Kitchen.

To recall, in a Mini-Restaurant Wars, Brother & Nini had to come up wtih a full menu expanding on their concept. The first two courses have been served. The winner will rejoin the competition, and their sous-chefs will get an important advantage going into the next Elimination Challenge.
- Brother (Adrienne, Brian, Eddie, Kelsey, Sara): Cumin-Dusted Scallop with Yuzu Guacamole, Toasted Nori & Kumquat Gastrique; Seared Tuna, Pico de Gallo with Cherry, Apple, Tomato, Cilantro Beurre Blanc & Bonito Flakes
- Nini (Brandon, David, Eric, Justin, Michelle): Lemongrass-Grilled Pork Chop with Thai Corn & Tomato Salad, Tapioca Pudding with Bananas Foster, Coconut Foam, Toasted Coconut & Peanuts.
WINNER: BROTHER

ELIMINATION CHALLENGE: Roaring Munchies. Serve up canape dishes playing on a dual theme - a 1920s Prohibition party and a cocktail. Because Brother's team won the Last Chance Quickfire, Adrienne, Brian, Eddie, Kelsey, and Sara got their choice of cocktails.

GROUP 1
- Eddie (Old Fashioned): Bourbon-Cured Smoked Salmon Crudo with Peach Puree, Caramelized Orange Gastrique & Brown Butter
- Brandon (Whiskey Sour): Duck & Artichoke Croquette with Pickled Fennel Relish
- Brother (Southside Fizz): Chicken Salad with Cucumber, Peanut Sauce, Beef Liver Mousse, Fresno Chiles, Basil, Cilantro & Mint

GROUP 2
- Brian (The Last Word): Pork Fennel & Calabrian Chili Sausage with Basil & Fennel Gnocchi
- Kelsey (12-Mile Limit): Bay Scallop Ceviche with Rhubarb Cherry Consomme & Corn Puree
- Michelle (Whiskey Sour): Liver Mousse Gougeres-Made Bourbon & Sour Cherries Pickled with Thyme & Pomegranate Syrup

GROUP 3
- Justin (Old Fashioned): Duck a L'Orange with Duck Liver Mousse, Bourbon, Orange Zest & Greens wtih Angostura Vinaigrette
- Sara (The Last Word): Bay Scallop with Avocado, Eggplant & Crudite
- Eric (12-Mile Limit): Oysterl with Rum/Bourbon Mignonette, Grenadine Nage Floater & Pumpernickel

GROUP 4
- David (Gin Rickey): Shrimp Tartare, Cucumber, Apple & Radish
- Adrienne (Gin Rickey): Shrimp & Avocado Toast with Cucumber, Watermelon, Juniper & Serrano Chile

JUDGES TABLE: joining Padma and Tom are Ken Oringer and Graham Elliott.
TOP 3: Eddie, Kelsey, Eric
- WINNER: Eric

BOTTOM 3: Brother, Brian, Sara
- ELIMINATED: Brother

So it's back to Last Chance Kitchen for Brother... or is it? Brother decides that he is DONE with the competition. That leaves eliminated player Caitlin, Kevin, Natalie, Nini, and Pablo to compete for his spot. Each chef will cook his or her favorite dish, and Tom will choose his favorite via a blind tasting.
- Caitlin: Cincinatti Chili Spice Rubbed Steak & Mustard Sauce
- Kevin: Salmarejo Soup with Olive Salad
- Natalie: Sea Bass with Whey Braised Napa Cabbage, Chicken Jus & Pickled Mushrooms
- Nini: Chawanmushi with Mushrooms
- Pablo: Seared Sea Bass with Pickled Radishes, Apples & Sautéed Mushrooms
WINNER: Pablo.

No, it was Carnegie-Mellon. Then on the 5th clue of the round, Anneke finds the other under $1600 Words About Words. She goes for four on this: the name of a 1775 play character gave us this word for an error like "There is no anecdote for the poison". "What is a malapropism?" For the four, $9600! She ends upw tih $19,200 to $12,800 for Jessica. But with -$800, Dave's day is done.

Behind two of the screens that say ROCK PAPER SCISSORS is $100. The last one says CAR. If Samantha gives up her cash and picks the right one, she drives off in a Mitsubishi Mirage worth $15,625!

D: 9

Mike determines that there are 4 that end in "City" (Oklahoma City, Salt Lake City, Carson City, Jefferson City), and also comes up with Santa Fe, Baton Rouge, Little Rock, and St. Paul. That's 8, but when he goes over them again, he forgets Baton Rouge and finds himself at 7. He goes with C... but it's D! The other one was Des Moines, and Mike leaves with $5,000.

Brooke Fleming (Pensacola, FL) is in public relations. She turns to the audience at $3,000, then sees this...

[$5,000]
Born in Baghdad and raised in London, brothers Maurice and Charles Saatchi are best known for their work in which field?
A: Law
B: Finance
C: Advertising
D: Music producing

The 50:50 leaves B and C. Brooke wasn't thinking C, but now she's unsure. She calls on her brother, Brett, who has heard of the name Saatchi somewhere, and he's leaning towards C. Brooke still isn't sure enough of this, so she walks with $3,000. The answer is C.

Neville Fogarty (Newport News, VA) is a math professor. He sweeps the first 5, then gets to $20,000 by the end of this episode. Neville will keep going tomorrow!
