The task gets tricky for some of the bakers as they start running out of time. “One down, a million processes to go,” Selasi vents of the precision necessary to create his pastries. The preview also reveals that one person forgets to turn on their oven, wasting precious time.

Meanwhile, others are struggling with quantity and aren’t anywhere near two dozen. “I’ve only got 11 in there,” Rav can be heard saying.

It’s hard to tell if the judges are impressed or disappointed with the pastries. Benjamina, who won Batter Week in episode four, is confused by her feedback from the judges. “The pastry itself is just mad,” Hollywood says. Benjamina replies, “Mad good?”
