I also was expecting the salted fish head to go over badly.
I recall it was either last season or the season before there was someone (don't remember her name but it was a woman with short hair) who often didn't finish her dishes. There may have been a time when she had nothing to put out during a quickfire. She was eliminated relatively early on.
I don't get why a woman would have to be on the men's team next ep. There's no need as there are equal numbers of men and women. Vittorio also makes a douchey sexist comment in the clip.
