I saw the episodes last night, and liked it, but was angered at the judges for their choiuce on who to eliminate. Clearly, the chioce was the blond girl. Her only redemming quality is that she is attractive. The food she made looked like crap, the 5 min demo she did was wrong. Not only did she just make the final product (OK, an easy mistake) but she was horrible at then trying to correct her mistake. Pauses, lots of umms, etc…The only good thing I saw her do was in her “Stress-test”, when her piping bad was clogged, she quickly jsut used a small, ziplock bag.
So why was the culinary arts teacher dismissed? Who knows. My theory? Bobby Flay didn’t like him and sent him packing, even though he wasn’t a judge. He was very judgmental of his “flair” when he used the peppermill. I thought it looked cool, just one little quirky thing he does, like Emiril’s “Bam,” and Flay basically told him he should never do thast ever unless he “brings it,” whatever that means. (I hate Bobby Flay.)
So, of the people left, my fav. is either the gay couple (they have a great dynamic…but what if they berak up?) and the guy with the poofy hair.
