A trying-too-hard quickfire challenge -- create a dish for the characters on "The Simpsons" -- was followed up by the "Exotic Surf and Turf" elimination challenge involving black chicken, monkfish liver, sea cucumber and one too many geoducks.
Try as we might, we're still can't get the images of geoduck and undercooked goat leg out of our head, so we'll spare you all the details. (But just for fun, here's a shot of Andrew Zimmern, host of "Bizarre Foods" on the Travel Channel, with the giant clams; Zimmern, as it happens, was the featured judge on last night's episode.)
Anyway, Mantuano scored the lowest on the quickfire with his fried bacon-honey dough, but scored in the top half for the elimination round with a luscious goat ravioli, one of the few appealing dishes of the night.
Crazy Susur won with an impressive 19 stars, and lovely Jody Adams, alas, was sent home.
