The first challenge is minami vs Nyan. nyan was making chicken karaage and minami made tofu burger. Minami made extra miso soup too. They were having the starting interview and minami hugged nyannyan, who surprisingly(!!!) allowed her to do so. Minami was whining when she’s hugging nyannyan. It is the CUTEST thing I’ve ever witnessed. When it was Nyannyan’s turn to do introductions, she didn’t realise and she was making an angry face. The MC was like, are you going to do that for opening and then Nyannyan lol-ed.
When minami could peel her radish with the knife shown in the photo, all the members who were watching were shouting “mother!!” Minami is really skilled tho. And Miichan was saying (she’s the commentary for Nyanmina’s) that minami is actually really good in cooking and that nyannyanisnt too bad either. Everyone’s kinda shocked when nyannyan could also peel the radish with the knife. When Nakki tried to do so, they passed her a regular peeler instead. Lol
Nyannyan was using the fork to poke the chicken and everyone was like “OMG she actually know that!” And she got praised for doing so. When minami flipped her burger for the first time, screams went out because it looked so fcking perfect. Nyannyan was handling the raw chicken with bare hands and then mixing the sauce, and she tasted the sauce with the same hand that she just handled the chicken. NYANNYAN DONT DO THAT!!! They took the food out and it actually smelled reeeeeaaally good that we (at audience seats) can even smell it. They said Nyannyan’s actually tastes better than it looked.
Ijiri ranked minami’s one position higher from the chef’s and like 3 places up from the chef’s for nyan nyan.
