Chefs, you all failed to honor the fish. Dale, you buried it. Tiffany, you killed it with honey. Carla, you went overboard with the mustard and hot sauce.

Dale, pack 'em up.

Paula: "My mouth was wanting one thing, but it got another." That's what she said! Literally!

Watching Mike flirt with Paula Deen is not a pretty thing.

Winner: Blais! He gets a trip to Barbados and $5k.

A preview of tonight's action, from Bravo:

The remaining chef'testants must use a deep fryer to impress the queen of southern cooking: Paula Deen. Deen is then joined by former Top Chef Master John Besh to guest judge the Elimination Challenge where the chefs provide the seafood at a charity event benefiting the fisherman of the gulf region. But when some of the already-eliminated chef'testants make their way back to the kitchen to assist the remaining All-Stars, will they serve as an extra hand or a burden? Find out this Wednesday 2/23 @ 10/9c on Top Chef All-Stars.
