Advertisements First two points: Michael gets $5,000 for the quickfire, but Richard gets $0 for the elimination? Sure, winning it is probably worth more than $5,000 to him, but the money would be nice as well. The second challenge envelope doesn't seem fair. One of the chefs could have completely blown the main challenge and still come back to get in the finals. In this case, though, I think Michael was a tad stronger in the main challenge and also won the second challenge, so it's not a big deal. Also, good to see Richard come out on top going into the final, that should boost his oddly flagging confidence.
