Trev LEFT OUT the carrot puree in his dish. The actual winner was...







































































































































...Nona, so she went on a retreat to the Hands-On Boutique Spa, plus she won a copy of Chef Ramsay's new book & some of his cookware! Russell was the runner-up, but Nona chose him to join her on the reward! The other half of the group had to do the laundry.
