Can’t say I’m surprised at Sara N. leaving. I saw it coming a couple of episodes ago. Not because she fought with Howie the last time around but…I don’t know, I just can’t put my finger on it other than she never looked happy to be there.
I’m beginning to think TC and HK borrow from each other. Didn’t HK last year have a challenge involving two transport kitchens? Not that having a challenge like this is bad because chefs should have experience cooking in all kinds of different venues, but it seemed such a blatant rip-off. Ditto the “remake a comfort classic” on HK a couple of weeks ago.
Now about Howie. He’s a bulldog but there’s something about him I find compelling. I don’t know if it’s charisma or what, but emotionally he’s so all over the place that I can’t help but bit my lip when he does/says something stupid without realizing it. I honestly don’t think he’s a bad guy offscreen. I do think the stress of being on TC is getting to him, though.
Anyone notice how quiet Hung was this episode? It’s almost as though he’s deliberately taking the backseat and letting Howie be the bad guy.
Congratulations Tre! I really hope you make it to the finals!
