Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
The final 3 arrive via ferry and Nookie assures us that if it comes down to him and Liz Garrett, he’s confident that Avery will choose him. Avery meanwhile lets us know that since she’s the sole provider for her kids, she’ll do whatever it takes to win this thing.
The team gets off the boat and is met with their first challenge – they have two hours to purchase ingredients (from the three shops listed) and prepare a traditional Uruguayan dish. The contestant to impress the chef with their dish will earn the exceptional ingredient. Liz thinks the two hour timeline is insanity.

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. She knows just how strategic he can be. That means that John Vermiglio and Liz Garrett will be paired together. Nookie has an emotional phone call with his wife and kids before leaving Hong Kong.
Last night’s episode of Around the World in 80 Plates introduced the five remaining chefs to the Demon Chef in Hong Kong. He had them eating condoms and dog food. Think I’m kidding? Read on!
The chefs arrive in Hong Kong and Liz Garrett reads the course clue. They must find the Tian Tan Buddha to receive the next clue. John Vermiglio and Nookie Postal are hoping to team up with Nicole Lou so they can throw her under the bus later. The group rides on a giant gondola with a glass floor. Nookie is terrified of heights. Once they reach the Tian Tan Buddha, the chefs learn that the teams will remain the same, and Avery Pursell, as the only loner, will get to pick whether she wants to work with the boys or the girls. Having been with Nookie every step of the competition, she chooses the ladies. The teams must race to the top of what looks like a million stairs to find their next clue, so Nookie is clearly dead weight for John.
On last night’s Around the World in 80 Plates, the chefs head to Chiang Mai Thailand. While I am still not the biggest fan of the Suvivor-esque format (more food, less strategy!), at least the challenges are getting a bit more interesting.
Jenna Johansen is wary about heading some place where she isn’t as knowledgeable about the cuisine (or the language for that matter), and Nicole Lou is convinced that she would have been sent home had she not had immunity. Nookie Postal couldn’t agree more. He’s livid about having to send Nick Lacasse home, and he plans on getting back at Nicole. John Vermiglio thinks Thailand is going to put everyone on an even playing field.
The contestants arrive in Thailand and begin the course at the airport. They must first divide into three teams of two and find the Ton Phayom market where they must purchase two baskets of coconuts. They learn that the winning team will get the exceptional ingredient and $10,000 while the losing team will be “left out in the cold.” John and Nookie immediately pair up, followed by Liz Garrett and Nicole. That leaves poor Avery Pursell with Jenna. Liz is hoping that Nicole’s experience with Asian style cooking will be helpful.
