    As someone who really doesn’t like shrimp (ewwie!) I have to say my fav part was the party! I wanna throw confetti all over people and have it in every orifice!!

  2. 2

    I loved when the guys got pulled up on the float and pelted with confetti!

  3. 3

    I love it when he says…in a great, sarcastic voice “we’re going shrimpin'”

    Oh, my! I want to win! I have been a Rocco fan since the beginning….what an amazing trip this could be!

    Let’s see…Shrimp? Confetti? How about just FUN in general? I could use a little party! (and of course, hanging out with Mrs. Picky Palate herself would be the bomb. Never been to California before. No time like the present. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Joanna says:

    I love all of the crazy hair at Carnivale, but I have to comment on that fisherman’s sweater Rocco has been sporting. Dude, too cute!

    Mary says:

    Dan Confetti was pretty funny. Also – I will never eat shrimp without thinking how hard it is to clean them and catch them! Never seen that before. Pick me…pick me (arms waving in the air)!!!

    oh man, my last chance, I really want to win this! My favorite part of this video was when Dan was cleaning the shrimp. I thought it was pretty funny that the chef was messing with him and made him eat some of the raw shrimp.

    Rachel says:

    I loved what a great sport Dan Cortese was with the sea sickness, the cleaning and eating the gross green shrimp stuff. And he still loved the pasta!

  23. 23
    Melissa says:

    Ginny Fisher says:

    The Carnival!! Unlike anything I’ve seen around here. How fun! And how great it was to end with a seafood dish cooked along side a Michelin Star chef! Fabulous trip! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lindsay says:

    That would be fun to ride on the boat catching shrimp and then cooking at the hotel. I like how she said “this is what you can do, when you’re strong enough” while flipping the veggies around in the pan.

  27. 27
    Charity says:

    The confetti made me laugh. And how they joked about it getting everywhere.

  28. 28
    Lisa says:

    “the guys were kidnapped by a guy in a chicken costume, and I have sworn to avoid that my entire life….” awesome

  29. 29

  31. 31
    Jerilee E. says:

    Well, I agree with Dan- this meal looked the best of ALL- I love shrimp! I would have been seasick right along with them on that boat, though…

  32. 32
    Debbie R. says:

    I loved when Marisa just backed up and let Dan clean all the shrimp – think I would have been there with her (don’t think I would have liked to pull the heads off!).

    Jenny, thanks so much for sharing this great opportunity!! Looking forward to seeing who wins this fabulous trip!!

    Danielle says:

    I just love shrimp. A whole segment about shrimp..YUM!!!!! Loved all those videos!

  36. 36
    Arena says:

    My favorite part was when they were pulling the shrimp from the net and Marisa squealed when she touched one. I would react like that, too!

  37. 37
    Ashli says:

    My favorite part was watching them sit down to a delicious meal and drinking a good glass of wine together, really appreciating the day and the company.

    Nataleigh G says:

    My favorite part of this webisode was basically any part involving Dan, haha!! I finally realized where I recognized him from (What I Like About You…it’s what I love about Dan!) and I couldn’t stop smiling about it! He was hilarious talking about the confetti everywhere, how he was punked with the shrimp, and even being sea sick ๐Ÿ™

  39. 39
    Valery Bunnell says:

    My favorite scene was when they sit down to eat. I could almost taste it. Yum!

  40. 40
    Lynne Saltz says:

    I loved the carnivale and the shrimping! How much fun would that be to go out, catch your dinner and cook it that day! Talk about fresh! Mmmmmmmm.
    I have to say I’m inspired to go to my grocer and get that little taste of Italy! Bellisimo!

  41. 41
    Heather says:

    Ugh, I am totally not a seafood fan. Is it ok if my favorite part was Marissa looking all nautical in her navy and white striped sweater?

  42. 42

    Totally freaked out by that little wooden clown man…but once I got over that…then I saw a million CHICIKEN SUITS!
    And someone please define the word orifice! haha

  43. 43
    Heather says:

    These video’s are so great and I would have to agree with Dan about this one being the best meal so far. It looked so delicious and I wish I could have been there myself.
    And that Dan is hilarious. I think my favorite part was when he eats the gooey green shrimp…yuck!
    Another great video!

  44. 44

    I loved the pictures of the Mediterranean and being out on the boat.

  45. 45
    Marcia says:

    Loved the shrimp! Had some for lunch in a pasta salad.

    Would love to go to L A. RIF teacher with too much time; ATL airport is just down the road a few miles. I love L A.

    shrimp fishing-looked fun, but bleh!

  49. 49
    Rose says:

    The views of the Mediterranean were amazing! A very close second favorite part of the video was Dan’s yelling, “I have confetti up my nose!”

    I have confetti up my nose!!!

    I would love to just sit with a professional chef and just cook with him. So fun!
