Once again, I am completely awful at this game.I now have 59 pts and am ranked 8577. I guess I am slightly moving up.
I did have Carla and Stefan on my team and they were in the top 3 so that was good.
However, Jamie was on my team and she got sent home. That celery must have been awful in its over-saltedness to send her home.
She seemed to understand the dish and just over reduced her sauce for the celery which is bad. It just does not seem as bad as Leah who didn’t understand her dish and it didn’t taste good.
At least Jamie knew what was going on. I am getting quite tired of Leah.
Pat and I were talking about Toby as a judge and he pointed out that his cristicims aren’t that funny and aren’t that relevant. Bourdain (who I love) comes on and will say mean things but they are funny and they actually address some thing about the food.
Saying something is stuck in your teeth and you wish it wasn’t doesn’t really help someone get any better. Calling a presentation “Flintstonian” is mean (as Bourdain did on a Thanksgiving episode a while back) but at least he was trying to get someone to see their presentation was overly simple with no color.
Oh well, I still love the show. My new line-up is Stefan, Carla (at the point I think one of them will win), and Hosea (I didn’t know who else to pick).
