Show 8: B.L.T. for Breakfast?

Watch this episode

Ever the entrepreneur, Ruff invested his entire show budget in his culinary creation: the Liver and Pineapple Biscuit Shake. Looking for ways to improve his recipe, Ruff sent one team of FETCHers out to invent a new flavor of ice cream (the three main ingredients had to start with the letters B, L, and T and two of them had to be vegetables), while Brian filled in as a short order cook at a local diner.

Brian soon realized that being a short order cook was a tall order. He had to wake up early, take orders from his younger sister, and avoid getting eggshell in the pancake batter. Feeding his family was just the first phase of his challenge. Brian had to go to a real diner and wait on real customers, butter tons of toast, and clean up tables. For his work at the diner Brian was awarded 70 points. For being rude to his little sister, Brian had 10 points deducted and was told to remember the old adage: "The customer is always right" (even when it's your little sister!)

Khalil, Taylor, and Noah were also getting better acquainted with the food industry but theirs was a far sweeter challenge. With some very specific directions from Ruff, they had to create an ice cream flavor using vegetables. After three attempts they nailed their recipe of butternut squash, lemon, and tomato juice ice cream. Ruff awarded them 50 points for their efforts but deducted 10 whole points because their ice cream lacked the required hint of bacon flavoring. The ice cream team also had to go public with their flavor, testing it out on strangers and reporting the results. (Get this, most people actually liked it!) For their data collection they earned 30 points and another 5 points for good marketing.

Meanwhile, Anna and Julia who stayed behind in Studio G answered 7 of 10 half-time trivia questions correctly.

Ruff awarded Brian bonus points for having the chutzpa to ask the diner owner for a summer job, making him the daily winner. For his prize, Brian was given a BLT sandwich.
