Food: Sunday 9p/8C
Host: Eric Adjepong with Alex Guarnaschelli
Official WebsiteFacebook

Tonight, Alex faces challengers from Texas, California, and Washington State in a battle of... DESSERTS.

Lasheeda Perry
Long Beach, CA
pastry chef/owner, Queen of Flavor

Michele Pompei
Walla Walla, WA
pastry chef/instructor, LE Cordon Blue

Leen Nunn
McKinney, TX
executive pastry chef, Omni Hotel

SURVIVAL ROUND: All three challengers will take on Alex at the same time. They will have to set the challenge from four boxes:
- Flavor (vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry): Chocolate
- Type of bar snack (pretzels, peanuts, or tortilla chips): Peanuts
- Type of utensil (fork spoon, or nothing): Spoon
- Time (1 to 60 minutes): 45 minutes
The top 3 dishes as judged by a blind panel will move on to the Money Round. The losing chef will go home... even if it's Alex. The chef who finishes first will exclusively get a chance to set the challenge in the Money Round... even if it's Alex.
- ALEX: Tuile Crunchy Bowl with Chocolate Ice CReam, Candied Peanuts
- Lasheeda: Chocolate Mousseline with Chocolate Ganache & PEanut Streusel
- Michele: Chocolate Cremeux with Chocolate Truffle Peanut Butter Sponge Cake
- Leen: Chocolate Lava Cake with Peanut Crunch & Creme Fraiche ICe Cream
On the panel tonight: dessert masters Sherry Yard & Dahlia Narvaez. They are not in the same building while the players are cooking.
- WINNER: Alex

MONEY ROUND: Alex will choose the elements in the next round.
- Type of flavor (lemon, coconut, or cinnamon): coconut
- Type of candy & time (honey candy/40m, gummies/50m, or licorice/1h): gummy bears/50m
- Type of dessert (anniversary or kid's birthday): anniversary
Again, the players will have their dish judged blindly. If any chef beats Alex and is ranked first, they win $10,000. If a dish is ranked second but beats Alex, it's worth $5000. If Alex beats you, you leave with absolutely NOTHING.
- ALEX: Coconut Cream Cake with Coconut Icing & Passion Fruit Sorbet
- Lasheeda: Coconut Rum Cream Puff
- Michele: PAssion Fruit Mango Panna Cotta with MAngo PAte de Fruit with Coconut Sorbet

THE STORY SO FAR! A split house led to the double evictions of JAsmine and Joseph AND the splintering (possibly) of the Leftovers Alliance. Now the house is back as one... and Michael & Terrance are sitting out as we go to...

HOH COMPETITION #8: MINIATURE ROOM. Stack 21 cans of Micro Energy drink as fast as you can. The first to do so wins.
- WINNER: Matthew Turner

Turner is put in a precarious situation, being in between his Leftovers and his After Party alliances. Monte still trusts the former, but understands the deal that comes with the latter. Kyle says that Joseph might have spilled \to Terrance or Alyssa, but Michael thought it was Kyle lying. Hey, question to GSNN Nation - how do you know Kyle is lying? His mouth is open.

Turner wants to make sure the Leftovers don't freak out, so he tells Brittany, Monte, Michael, and Taylor that they're safe. Kyle also has a final two deal with Turner, so he's safe? as well. That leaves Alyssa and Terrance. Also, Turner tries to bring Monte aboard by mentioning how Michael, Brittany, and Taylor are building a sub-alliance without him. Monte later brings this up in a meeting with Kyle and Turner. He commits himself to aligning against Michael, Brittany, and Taylor. If it comes down to it, Michael will be leaving.

NOMINATION CEREMONY #8: So will it be the Leftovers or the After PArty?
- NOMINEES: Taylor Hale, Brittany Hoopes, saying that they made a final-three deal that didn't include him.

You know, for a guy who's no longer in the house, Joseph sure lives rent-free in the houseguest's heads...

A new quad of teams at a new, later time, but we didn't swap out the stacks. A cool $250,000 can be theirs if they can conquer... THE FINAL STRAW!

- Hot Rodders (married couple Ronna & Kevin - 32 years) vs. Spirit Squad (UCLA cheerers Remi & Ranhita). WINNER: Hot Rodders

ROUND 2: SEAFOOD STACK. We're playing with the bounty of the sea.
- Team DNA (Danny 'n Alex) vs. Social Climbers (influencers Rian & Jaclyn). WINNER: Social Climbers

FINAL TOWER: STACK-A-LOT. One of the items in this stack will grant the team who pulls it a Sabotage for the other team. The Sabotage item is... a shield.
- Social Climbers pull the Sabotage shield, giving the Hot Rodders a penalty pulling out their next item... with a long wig.
WINNER: Social Climbers

MEGA STACK: You have two minutes to remove as many items as you can and put them in your vault. Pull five purple capsules to win $10,000. Pull a yellow capsule and store it to add 2 minutes to your time. Another four purples gets you up to $25,000. Another three gets you $50,000. Another two gets $100,000. One more wins you the lot. You can bail after completing a level, and that's important, because if you run out of time or the tower falls, you will leave with the last-completed level amount.

Making the Cut Season Premiere
by Chico Alexander
bird, new, square, twitter icon @DinoRAlexander

Prime Video: streaming Fridays
Hosts: Heidi Klum & Tim Gunn
Official WebsiteFacebook

Last week, the new season began with 10 designers using two weeks to make  eveninjg wear and two days to make active wear. Emily and Ciara are out, leaving us with the final 8.

ASSIGNMENT #3: Winter Wear. You have ONE DAY to make a two-look winter wear collection with one high-fashion runway look and one accessible look, with the winner going to the Making the Cut store on Amazon.

We get into the Tim Talks...
- Gabriella: her runway look needs to be stepped up in order to stand out from her accessible look. As it is right now, they look too similar.
- Curtis: His looks have ptential, but he wonders why he was unsure when he was confident beforehand.
- Jeanette: Tim thought it was a fantastic choice of fabric, but it was too much of a statement.
- Georgia: Tim thought the black-and-orange choice reminded him of Halloween.
- Yannik: ... a blanket.
- Markantoine: Reminds him of the Pope... in a good way.

FASHION SHOW #3: Joining Heidi, Jeremy, and Nicole on the panel... Hollywood stylist Jason Bolden. 

BOTTOM THREE: Gabriella, Curtis, Georgia. The judges then wondered aloud whether or not to cut one or two.
- MAKING THE CUT... Curtis by a 3-1 split... and also Georgia. That means that Gabriella is out.

On the other side of things...
- WINNER: Jeanette!


In the nightcap, the final 7 will be working on ONE team...

ASSIGNMENT #4: One Day, One Team. You have SEVEN hours to create an accessible, cohesive collection where every designer is responsible for one look.

FASHION SHOW #4: Joining Heidi, Tim, Nicole, and Jeremy this week is TikTok fashion influencer Wisdom Kaye.
- WINNER: Yannik!
BOTTOM 3: Georgia, Sienna, Markantoine

But that would be short-lived as everyone came to a realization that there could be a double elimination as soon as the next assignment.
