    Eugene really takes every opportunity to flex his cheese

  3. Abbey K says:

    I hope Keith isn’t too broken up about his Mac. Honestly, it was probably the pineapple that caused the “=overnight metamorphosis from “pretty good” to “oh my gosh.” The acidity of pineapple can curdle cheese and bring a sort of… stomach acid quality to food when left over like that (I wouldn’t doubt if that’s what caused Ro’s reaction). If he’d left the pineapple and toppings for last and only combined it and baked it like… an hour before judging, it probably would have been better.

      @rannierunsfast damn u r so sensitive

    • Ichie Yamato says:

      @rannierunsfast clearly.

    • alexander kangas says:

      @rannierunsfast chill

    • A says:

      @rannierunsfast Doesn’t sound like you have a sense of humor. Of course Keith isn’t truly “sensitive” about it – he’s a grown man and he reacts this way on nearly every episode. What he had should have worked really well, but the pineapple and lime really messed up his food over night and this is hopefully something he’ll learn for the future. You didn’t need to be “sensitive” about this original comment and feel the need to add yours.

    • Skylar Alley says:

      Moral of the story: fuck pineapples

  4. potato that paints says:

    the thing that morphed with keith’s mac and cheese is that pinapple has enzymes in it, enzymes that can cook/dissolve meat, so that meat was rotten, because it was left in pinapple enzymes for 12 hours, so all im going to say is that rossannas body was right to try and get it out.

    • Caroline says:

      Everything you typed sounds right, but can someone explain why it’s OK to use pineapple juice to tenderize beef? I use pineapple for bulgolgi and it turns out fine

    • E D says:

      Caroline because the enzymes help break down the toughness in meats (starts to pre digest it basically) but leave it to long and it will break it down to much if you don’t cook the pineapple.

    • deez says:

      @Caroline not sure if im right but i think its ok to leave it on a few hours to soften the meat and get the flavor and then after you cook the meat the enzymes in the pineapple get neutralized. Like in alpastor you cook the meat along with the pineapple but in Keith’s case he put the lemon and pineapple juice after he cooked everything

    • Amy Mombourquette says:

      @Caroline It depends on how long it’s marinading for. The bromelain (enzyme) in the pineapple juice will break down the proteins in the meat causing it to be less tough, which if left for too long, will degrade the meat. Pineapple juice also has less bromelain than fresh pineapple, so the meat is being subjected to less enzyme and thus has a slower rate of reaction. I’m pretty sure the cap for marinading with pineapple tends to be 12 hours, with a recommended 2-4 hours?

    • Tacolover3707 says:

      I was going to say that it was probably acid in the pineapple that messed up Keiths dish but I wasn’t exactly sure what it did so thank you for saying this 😅

  5. Kiera Windsor says:

    Has Zach ever been able to make a dish that doesn’t absolutely obliterate his digestive system?

  6. JannieJubille says:

    This episode: You can serve floor dough, it’s a food safety issue.
    Previous episode: serves raw/ undercooked “cinnamon” rolls.

  7. Ann says:

    Ned: Yale educated chemist who definitely for sure understands how the specific heat capacity of water works
    Also Ned: can’t boil water

  8. Bakugo Katsuki says:

    Eugene: I’m so evil

    Also Eugene: helps Zach throughout the entire competition

    • Jacob F. Keller says:

      Encouraging Zach so he can beat the stuffing out of the “competitive” Keith and “professional” Ned is the MOST EVIL thing you could do.🤣

    • Roman Gunter says:

      The likes for this comment are kinda appropiate for Euegene’s evilness.

    • Nancy Thomas says:

      Despite Zach wanting to add M&Ms to everything, Eugene is the real M&M! Crunchy and hard on the outside, soft and sweet on the inside.

  9. Keelin McCafferty says:

    I think Zach is actually learning from his mistakes. It’s cool to see his progress over this whole series

    • Goosebump 801 says:

      Yes! Zach the underdog! ❤️❤️❤️

    • musicmaniac32 says:

      Agreed! I don’t know how much of this is real and how much is plot creation (watch the Behind the Scenes on the Second Try channel), but assuming it’s real, I love how Zach has gone from not caring and trying to do the most absurd things possible, to actually making the recipe without a recipe. Yay Zach!

      And poor Keith! 😢 I don’t know why mac and cheese was a 2-day challenge either, Keith.

    • Maya says:

      I love how confident he was when working with kwesi in the donut episode he keep teaching him things that he didn’t know what meant at the beginning of this series

    “”You can’t serve floor dough to Roanna Panssino!”
    Oh bless Rachel’s heart trying to raise her 4 boys! lol
