I wonder if, even though they don't say it, their judgements in the main bake are colored by their impressions from preheat. LaShonda's poptart topped cupcakes were a miss, so maybe that was still in Duff's mind when he critisized her fondant carrot? He's pretty particular about fondant in general. Surely there are things that are edited out that we don't hear, maybe Lorenzo was too snarky for their taste at some point, who knows. I was glad to see Eva win over Jamal. She doesn't need to talk about her work, her baking speaks for itself.
Lol, trudysdad said Jesse requested the big table so he could sit across from Nancy, that way she can't try to feed him unless she tries to climb across the table. Which, give her enough booze and she might.
