27. I hate Bobby Flay
It will be hard for anyone to overcome Flay's ass-hole-iness, but hopefully Giada can handle it and keep him from jumping on his cutting board this time. That chick still creeps me out with her freakishly-wide smile!

I just stumbled onto this place, and decided to dip my toe in the pool here in the Lounge, some of the other threads look a little intense, I dont' want to come off as stupid on my first day...

31. Good idea.
I did the same thing 4 years ago, and have hardly ventured out of the lounge since.

3. That SHOULD be interesting!
Three people with formal cooking education, and one person without - it's a good thing, I think, that they've teamed Ray up with Mario, since Mario is the far better cook than Flay, and so can make up for some of Ray's shortcomings.

The DE LAURENTIIS/FLAY teamup could come up with some pretty interesting stuff - two creative (or, in the case of Flay, partly creative) cooks, well-trained, and who know what they're doing.

I can't wait for this one!

What's the secret ingredient gonna be, I wonder? I bet it will be a kind of meat - either beef or lamb.

20. I've eaten a lot of scary stuff in Japan, but have yet to find courage
to eat the sea cucumber.

21. That's not a lack of courage.
That's an abundance of sense! :7

Of course, I'm a vegan so what do I know. :P

10. What the hell happened to AJ
I didn't get to see that episode - I swore she was gonna win it all and they booted her off before that awful Jaeda.

What the hell gives!

13. Jaeda has sucked since the very beginning so it made no sense
for them to get rid of AJ. I only saw the last 10 minutes of the show so I had no clue what AJ did to make it seem like she didn't want to be there. She not only had the look but her walk was one of the best I've ever seen on the show. She was a natural.

17. She didn't do anything, not really
She acted uncomfortable at the "shoot," but the shoot was probably the fakest and worst in ANY season (sorry, CYCLE). She was a bit wishy washy about stuff, but she only said that in her confessionals.

I would say she was THE most natural/real model they've ever had on the show. Ugh.

Jaeda? SUCKED. Had a bad attitude, photographed sooooo bad, and was weird looking in a bad way.

Tyra sucks.

You also missed one of the twins coming out on national TV, then calling her Mom and saying,"Happy Mother's Day! Btw... I think I'm gay..."

Melsrose was likeable.

Janice was also on there -- being a b-word extradorinare. Semi-sober Janice is way worse than messed up Janice.

Classic ANTM.

Thank the gods for Twiggy and Nigel.

23. I know, right?!
I'm convinced the judges are on the glue. :grr:

I honestly don't see wtf the whole Jaeda nonsense is about. It seems like they almost HAVE to keep one person each cycle who SUCKS, is SO CLEARLY not gonna win (see Gina :eyes:) and sacrifice people who actually have potential. I don't get it. :shrug:

11. I'm pulling for Ray and Batali
Flay comes across like a real asshole, and Giada uses too many personal pronouns (I, Me, My).
