In episode 7, the guest judge is action king Danny Trejo. The quickfire challenge requires the contestants to cook the perfect taco. They are given a machete, which is the only tool for the task. The winner gets immunity in the next elimination challenge. The chefs are allotted 30 minutes for their preparations. At the end of the time frame, Danny says Gregory’s creation is his least favorite, and joining him is Eric. At the top three, we have Lee Anne, Karen, and Stephanie. Finally, the winner is Stephanie.

In the elimination challenge, the guest judges are Stephanie Izard and Kevin Boehm. The contestants need to design a concept, an innovative menu, and a mood board. They also have to make dishes as examples of their cuisine. The pitching begins.  The judges’ favorites of the day are Gregory, Kevin, Malarkey, and Melissa. At the bottom three, we have Eric, Lee Anne, and Stephanie. Ultimately, Eric is evicted this week. As his parting words, he says: “This season has taught me a new humility.
