  • Stephan: Are you ready to go back?

  • Caroline: Yeah. Aj: We're ready.

  • Stephan: OK, let's go.

  • Caroline: All right, Aj, what did you think of that?

  • Caroline: Yes! I knew you'd like it.

  • Aj: Are you ready for you clue?

  • Caroline: I'm so ready. I'm so ready. OK.

  • and then me and you are gonna have a little competition

  • and see who can make the better omelet.

  • Caroline: OK, I'm gonna win this one.

  • I think I'm a pretty good chef.

  • Aj: I don't know about that.

  • Caroline: Oh, I've never seen anyone whisk eggs like that.

  • Aj: I know.

  • Caroline: There's a technique to this.

  • Aj: Yeah.

  • Caroline: It's not how we whisk eggs.

  • Aj: Yeah, I do a circle.

  • It's, like, back and forth. Caroline: I do circles.

  • Aj: Look how bubbly it is.

  • Like, it gets fluffy inside the bowl.

  • Caroline: Yeah, I think that's the key.

  • It's like, the harder you whip, the bubbly it is.

  • Aj: Kind of push off, OK.

  • Caroline: It's so fluffy.

  • Aj: Half, look at it go.

  • Oh, look at that!

  • Look at that!

  • Caroline: That's really fluffy.

  • Aj: Oh, my gosh.

  • Caroline: That's so fluffy.

  • Aj: It's super fluffy.

  • Caroline: Can I try?

  • Wait, I'm not left-handed, that's why.

  • That's so bad, wait.

  • Yes, but I'm whisking it, no?

  • Aj: You gotta give it a push.

  • Caroline: OK. All right. Aj: All right.

  • And then scoop, like, half of it out.

  • Caroline: Uh-oh, that's not it.

  • Aj: There it...almost!

  • Caroline: I ruined it!

  • Aj: On this part, there you go.

  • Caroline: I'm so sorry.

  • (laughing)

  • I'm so sorry, pardon my ugly omelet.

  • Aj: It has personality.

  • Caroline: I'm sorry, it's like me.

  • You know what, that's my omelet.

  • That's mine, let's see what you can do, Aj.

  • Let's see your omelet. Aj: All right, I am ready.

  • Oh, oh!

  • Caroline: Oh, oh, oh!

  • Aj: Don't wanna spill it!

  • Push, push.

  • Caroline: He's really good.

  • Aj: Push.

  • Caroline: I think you've got this, Aj.

  • Aj: OK, so I'm gonna come here and take this thing.

  • About half.

  • Caroline: Do a little flip.

  • Aj: Oh, look at that.

  • Caroline: I'm impressed, I'm impressed.

  • Aj: I did it!

  • Look at this!

  • Caroline: This is my sad, you're a pro.

  • You've definitely done this before.

  • You mastered the presentation.

  • Mine just looks like a giant peanut.

  • Aj: Yeah, I think I did all right on the flip.

  • Caroline: Yeah, no, but you know what,

  • it's all about the taste.

  • Aj: It is.

  • Caroline: So, bon appétit.

  • Aj: Bon appétit.

  • Caroline: Oh, my God, it's like chewing on a cloud.

  • Aj: It really is.

  • Caroline: Oh, wow.

  • That's probably the yummiest dare we're ever gonna do.

  • OK, ready to go back to Paris?

  • Aj: Oui oui.

  • Caroline: We had such an amazing time

  • in Mont Saint-Michel, and now we're back in Paris,

  • and it's literally so gorgeous here.

  • Aj: I know. Everywhere you look,

  • there's just this beautiful French architecture.

  • But somehow this hotel captures the essence of New York.

  • Caroline: Hmm. I think you're right.

  • Time for the rating.

  • OK. I'm just gonna go right into it.

  • So, when you first took off the blindfold,

  • I really thought this was gonna be the dare

  • that you were gonna be super nervous about.

  • But it was the total opposite,

  • you were so excited, and you also had the fastest time,

  • which I was not expecting.

  • I don't know, I just have to give you a five.

  • I can't give you anything else.

  • Aj: Crushing the dares, I love it.

  • Caroline: Crushing the dares, yep.

  • Aj: All right. So, for your rating, Caroline,

  • I actually knew you were gonna be

  • really excited for your dare,

  • you jumped right in the kitchen, you were excited to learn,

  • you were dancing along to the beat.

  • You were having a great time.

  • But, at the end of the day,

  • your flip was kind of a flop.
