i totally agree! however, it being bravo, you know there has to be at least 1 gay, 1 black, 1 latino, 1 asian, and a good looking girl and guy. i think that they should all have had equal backgrounds, or at least similar, but the one girl who had no formal training? she didn't stand a chance. and one that's half way through culinary school? again, gone. but even with all that said, i find it entertaining to see how the 'chefs' deal with the challenges that they are presented with. the wedding reception one looks very interesting, and either stephen or dave is going to be the next to go.
