Genius vs. Consistency|Shellie and Sarah are on the chopping block.|The judges deliberate on whether to eliminate Shellie or Sarah in The Taste's season 2 episode, "The Sweetest Thing."
As Shellie and Sarah learned, stars can make you -- or break you.
As we approach the semifinals, we figured this would be a good time to tally up the scores so you can see who's been crushing it in the kitchen, and who's falling a bit behind. Poor Shellie, seen in the video above, lamented that her first stars were all red. She paid dearly for those stars, and now, headed into Week 7, only contestants who have pinned at least one Gold Star to their aprons remain.
But the Red Stars aren't necessarily a harbinger of doom -- some of the remaining contestants carry those scarlet marks as well.
So is your favorite chef smoking hot, or just getting burnt? Here's the count:
Gold Stars (The Good Ones!)
Lee - Team Anthony: 5
Jeff - Team Ludo: 4
Marina - Team Anthony: 4
Sarah - Team Marcus: 3
Louise - Team Ludo: 3
Shehu - Team Marcus: 1
Red Stars (Not the Kind You Want)
Shehu - 3
Jeff - 2
Marina - 1
Sarah - 1
