The food truck teams were Alex and Dom, Jay and Arnold, and Michelle and Eddie. Jay and Arnold were the best team according to the judges, and the remaining 4 contestants were up for elimination. The judges didn't get to decide who to eliminate as Michelle decided that she would quit and eliminate herself.
There was still Star Salvation, but just without Michelle. Emilia Cirker, Matthew Grunwald, and Rue Rusike completed to remain in the competition. Matthew was the one eliminated and he will not be the next Food Network Star despite many people thinking he would be the one to win Star Salvation.
