This is probably going to be the worlds stupidest Pit Thread but I just want to vent a bit. I don’t know if anyone here actually watches this show or not. My wife got me watching it a few weeks ago.
Anyway, tonight there was a challenge where basically people paired randomly with the challenge being that they had to prepare a meal that could be frozen and then cooked up in 10 minutes. My first rant is…whats the point of pairing supposed top chefs randomly?? I mean, when we are talking about people with large egos they don’t always work well WITH PEERS! And top chefs are supposed to be the ones in charge of a kitchen for gods sake! I just felt that because it was a random team it was stupid to make the challenge…and even stupider to dismiss someone for what was essentially a team effort! And then to have top chefs who have never cooked or prepared something designed to be frozen and then cooked in 10 minutes, never experimented with that style (why would they? Who cooks that way?)…well, that was stupid too.
My final rant was that IMHO they picked the wrong person to leave. I felt that Joey (I think thats his name) obviously had a problem with Hung (Han?)…and so expecting that team, randomly chosen, to work well together is, well, ridiculous. Last week Joey was the challenge winner…this week because of the stupid nature of this challenge he’s gone. And the one I felt SHOULD be gone? It was obviously Sarah (Sara? Something like that). She did nothing in this challenge, brought nothing to the team. She was worthless IMHO…so if you were going to have such a stupid challenge for such high stakes it was clear that she was the one who should have gotten wacked.
I’m no cooking expert…or even a cooking SHOW expert. I watch Good Eats and thats pretty much the extent of my cooking show knowledge. My wife is the big cooking show fan. But this show completely pissed me off…especially since it was SO unfair (IMHO). I felt SO bad when Joey was called…and even worse when he started to break down and cry.
I felt the two who won the challenge (I don’t even know their names…the tall guy and the black guy) are the best chefs in the competition, and I think that ultimately its going to be one of them who wins. Joey I felt was destined to eventually be off the show anyway before the end. But THIS way? No, it was just wrong.
lol, I can’t believe I just ranted a stream of consciousness rant about a cooking show! Yeah, its petty and probably stupid…and I probably don’t have a clue what I’m talking about. I’m just glad thats off my chest.
