What's the marketing technique of this show to get people out in these cities?Not that it really matters, but I'm curious. Anyway, so I'm really glad that the Seoul Sausage boys pulled it out in the end, even if it was extremely close throughout this final three-city stop. I found the cities where they sold to be interesting, but am particularly intrigued as to why they only spent ninety minutes in the final destination, even if it was such a small town... did Tyler just want to wrap it up? I mean, I feel like the trucks drove a long way and did a lot of strategizing (to make the items under two bucks each!) in order to work in Lubec, Maine! I also thought that having to shuck 600 clams was a TON of work! I've never done clams, but I used to go on a weekend scalloping trip every year where we would shuck our own unless we had a particularly plentiful haul (which was only the final time, LoL!), and it took a TON of time! Of course, it's probably a little different when you don't want your hard-earned seafood to go to waste! So, what did you think? Were you pulling for the Jersey girls and their nonnas? Do you think that Seoul Sausage stands a chance in the real market?
Seoul Sausage, Korean Sausages, Los Angeles. For Boston, they call the HQ of a cupcake place they know in LA and partner with them for the day. For their Truck Stop, they poach a lobster in butter and put it on a roll with some apple coleslaw. [...doesn't sound that great to me.] The judges would have liked smaller pieces of meat in the sandwich (plus claw meat!), and a chilled sandwich with the coleslaw on the side instead. By the time they get to Portland, they don't have much time left to sell. The next morning, they raise their prices a dollar to catch up, feeling they're behind Nonna's. [not a bad idea.] They want to go with the full menu but with smaller portions in Lubec, and that seems to totally work for them.
