I've had a soft spot for her since early in the first episode when Mike I said she couldn't shuck clams because she was a girl and somebody assumed she was a pastry chef. Then, we it turned out she could cook like a demon, I was sold.
10. Yeah, I thought Mattin was pretty much a prat.
Can't say I'm sorry to see him gone. He never did impress me over much with any of the food he presented.
Has anyone else noticed that by about the fourth or fifth show of the season it is fairly easy to spot the ones that are gonna go pretty far and the ones that are not gonna be around too long? We are at the point now, that we have started to try and ID what WEEK some of them will go home...
have a chefs cook for people not into high end and every season the chefs bitch that they can't do gourmet whatever. Notice the two people who did a caviche both found themselves in the bottom 3 with one going home.
There is NO way I would have eaten the food involved after seeing no apparent refrigeration for fish, etcetera, in 110 degree heat.
If I wanted to watch "Survivor", I would. This is a program involving food preparation. When you're taking a group of people into a desert to make food, not giving them any indication of the conditions, then bitching because the food is "inappropriate" (hey, Padma and Tom, I'm looking at you,) it's not even interesting to me.
Of course, maybe I'm just cranky, but I've really had enough of Padma Lakshmi. What exactly is it that she adds to this program?
17. All the contestants rely far too much on fish and seafood
I am allergic to seafood, so I suppose this bugs me more than it does others, but even given that, seafood seems like an extremely strange choice for ranchhands in the desert.
I remember one year (I think it was year two) when they were catering a celebrity party, and one team leader prepared just three items, EVERY SINGLE ONE of them fish or seafood. One of her team members complained but must have been overruled.
I predict him, the brothers and Jen in the final. And yeah, the top tier ones really were transparent right from the start. I've been a fan since season 1, and I must say I'm really enjoying this season. Less drama (I'm looking at you Hosea and Leah), great chefs (unlike the poseurs of season 2), and some yummy meals so far (Kevin's bbq pork for the air force challenge made me drool.)
