"Around the World in 80 Plates" 5/23

Exceptional Ingredient Challenge #3: In Barcelona, Spain, the following had to be done:

1. Locate the Telefrico de Montjuic; once the first five cheftestants made it there, they would become one of the week's two teams & get a head start.
2. Find the Clock Tower, where Curtis was waiting.
3. Sort, prep & pack three different kids of seafood in 25 minutes- Fileted Merluza, Monkfish & Sepia Ink. The team that earned more money w/ that seafood won; regardless of the outcome, they then went shopping for their ingredients w/ the cash in a half-hour.

RT: John, Cheven, Chaz, Gary & Nick = 385 Euros
BT: Liz, Nicole, Jenna, Nookie & Avery = 356 Euros

EI #3: Red prawns

THE TAKEOVER #3: Both teams worked side-by-side at Dos Cielos to cook a three-course seafood menu.
