After the first chef was eliminated on Vegas Chef Prizefight, the next challenge could be a little prickly. Could the kitchen fall apart due to lack of communication?

With the bright lights of Las Vegas shining, the remaining chefs are looking to make their mark on Vegas Chef Prizefight. While last week’s challenges had highs and lows, the remaining chefs really need to impress the panel or their opportunity is about to go bust. Everyone better watch out for those stubborn minds in the kitchen.

According to Food Network, this week’s Vegas Chef Prizefight episode, “Courage in the Kitchen” features the following:

"Chef Anne Burrell pushes the seven remaining chefs to the limit with a challenge to create a dish using the nopal cactus. Then, the candidates have to create Mexican dishes worthy of dinner service at Guy Fieri’s El Burro Borracho at the Rio Las Vegas All-Suite Hotel and Casino. Leadership and quick thinking become critical when organization and communication fall apart."

For the first challenge, cooking with a nopal cactus takes a little creativity. It isn’t a common ingredient, but it can be quite tasty. Hopefully, all of the chefs will have worked with this ingredient at least once.

Since the first challenge may not impact the elimination (as seen in last week’s episode), some chefs might not put their best foot forward in that challenge. Still, no one should ever just present a sub-par dish.

If the same premise from last week applies, the chefs will be broken into teams. Based on the synopsis, it seems that the teams may not get along. While this competition is based on individual performance, a strong team can ensure a chef’s safety for another week.

While this Food Network show is entertaining, it can make viewers wonder what the panel is wanting. By having the chefs create dishes based on existing concepts, why not have the chefs create dishes for the new restaurant? Even though the restaurant is being built, the concept must be known.

This week’s take over of Guy Fieri’s restaurant could have everyone feeling a little fiery. While the name might refer to the drunken donkey, everyone should hope that shots aren’t being served in the kitchen.
