I spent two years stationed in the Philippines. That being said, lumpia is like a national dish there, and it is basically a thinner version of an egg roll/ spring roll, usually accompanied by a dipping sauce. They are usually very tasty. Also, adobo is delicious Filipino style, and I make it regularly at home these days. Although what they served on the truck did not look like traditional Filipino chicken adobo.
I also don’t like the huge difference the challenges make, especially in a short competition. It isn’t fair to a team that is consistently good, to lose a single challenge and have that send them home.
Finally, all the teams had one member yammering on about how the $50k was life changing. It always seemed like the person saying that was planning on keeping the entire pot of money, not sharing it with the team, or even considering the tax bite. Realistically, you would end up with mid to upper 30’s after taxes, and split three ways maybe $12-$14k a person if shared equally. In other words, just basically a little more than a single episode of Chopped, but you have to commit to a month or more for the contest. They really need to up the prize money, perhaps $25k for each team member.
