I'll be honest here,
I LOVE Top Chef. I think seasons one and three were the best, followed by two and four. Two and four, in my opinion were equal. Season three I think was my favorite, probably had the most talent. And of course, season one. I think Tom said it best, "Harold is a chefs chef" I just wish with all the re-runs bravo does that they would play a little more of season one.
This season doesn't seem to have the talent that one and three had, but it's still good. I'm liking it so far, and I don't really start to make bets on the contestants till later on, but as for now.. I think Stephan and Fabio will be there for a while. Leah and Hosea also. Jeff is doing some cool stuff, and while Ariane (NJ cougar) does a lot of basics, sometimes thats all you need. Eugene, I can sympathize with him, because I also didnt go to culinary school, and have had his problem in the past. He finds it very hard to take criticism and thinks his food is the "be all and end all", even if it is lacking SALT or PEPPER. But I got over that real quick, and I think he will too, or he will go home.
This weeks episode, Christmas Eve, Im really looking forward too, mostly becaue I cant wait to see what kind of foam marcel puts up for the judges, you know he will!!
All in all, If I had to pick between Top Chef and Hells Kitchen, Id pick Top Chef. Hells Kitchen contestants, at least 80% of them, cant work together and so many of them try and pass off food that is clearly crap.. Do they really think Ramsey WON'T notice??
Either way, Merry Christmas!!!
P.S. If that whiny lesbian cooks one more scallop dish, Im going to go mad. That warm scallop in vichysiosse(sp? idk) made me want to vomit. Even if they were ice cold, It still didn't look good at all, aside from the fact the Top Chef kitchen clearly stocks plenty of protiens, THAT ARE NOT SCALLOPS! And for the record, I love scallops.
