The final two food truck teams arrive in Savannah, and Tyler Florence's first challenge introduces the teams to a new mobile selling vehicle: pedicabs. Each team has a half hour to make as much food as possible to sell out of their own pedicabs.
The remaining six teams arrive at the Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida. The highest grossing teams from the first leg of the race get to pick teams to work with to feed 50 service members. The teams pair up and have one hour to cook. The teams with the favorite dish get $200 added to their final till. They also hit the streets of Pensacola to sell their dishes. Tyler offers immunity to the team that can make the most profits off a dish featuring a full fresh red snapper.
Seven teams arrive in the streets of the French Quarter in New Orleans, where they meet host Tyler Florence. Their first challenge is to create their own version of a beignet and sell it in the French Market, adding their earnings to their seed money. In the second challenge, they must impress New Orleans celebrity chef Susan Spicer with a dish inspired by the popular Hurricane drink. One team is eliminated and six make it closer to the finish line and the grand prize of $50,000.
