Caroline: Oh, I've never seenanyone whisk eggs like that.
Aj: I know.
Caroline: There's a technique to this.
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 youwhip, 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.
Aj: All right.
And then scoop, like, half of it out.
Caroline: Uh-oh, that's not it.
Aj: There it.

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.

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 didall 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'slike chewing on a cloud.
Aj: It really is.
Caroline: Oh, wow.
That's probably the yummiestdare 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, andnow we're back in Paris, and it's literally so gorgeous here.
Aj: I know.
Everywhere you look, there's just this beautifulFrench architecture.
But somehow this hotel capturesthe essence of New York.
I think you're right.
Time for the rating.
I'm just gonna go right into it.
So, when you first took off the blindfold, I really thought thiswas gonna be the dare that you were gonna besuper nervous about.
But it was the total opposite, you were so excited, and youalso had the fastest time, which I was not expecting.
I don't know, I justhave 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, foryour 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.
So, unfortunately, I gotta give you a three out of five stars.
Caroline: Oh, Aj.
It's OK, I'll take it.
The omelets were still really good.
And I had a great time.
It's probably one of myfavorite things I've ever done.
Aj: Yeah, and you'll get 'em next time.
Caroline: All right, let's take a bite of this and go on to our next adventure.
