We’re down to the wire on Around the World in 80 Plates. It was an episode with fewer “chefs” and fewer exotic locales the viewers don’t get to see enough of, in my opinion. The contestants find themselves in Buenos Aires, Argentina for the next leg of their journey.
Before heading to Argentina, the chefs must break into two teams of two. Avery Pursell, as the most valuable chef, gets to pick her partner, and she chooses her always ally Nookie Postal.
