[MUSIC] Good morning chefs. Please welcome Aaron Schock, representative from the 18th district of Illinois. Good morning, chefs. Good morning. Thank you, good to be with you. When you become a new member of Congress and win your election, the first day is spent on ethics. Believe it or not, a good portion of that discussion is about food. Basically, the ethics committee wants to make sure that there's not too much undue influence between the elected officials and the paid lobbyists here in Washington D.C. So, in order to abide by all these rules but still get all of these power players into one room, chefs and caterers have found Found an interesting solution. [MUSIC] The humble toothpick. Our government has adopted the toothpick rule. Gourmet dishes have been whittled down to bite size. For your Quick Fire Challenge you'll be devising a delicious hors d'oeuvre that packs the punch of a full dish. And this is also a high stakes Quick Fire, so the winner will not only receive immunity- They will receive $20,000. In cash. Wow. My husband and I have a restaurant for seven years now that has been struggling and I have a family to provide for. So $20,000 would help pay off some debt. You have 30 minutes. Your time Starts now.
