TOP CHEF SPOILERS X3!!!
i really wish that tom would have called me so that i could have been the quickfire judge… those scrumptuous midnight snacks really should be in my belly right now. except for stephens of course. sucio. as much as i dislike fabio, it was hilarious listening to him describe his gnocchi to the kiddies, “theez are like peelows made out of poetaytoes.” (jump to the 3:45 mark) anyway, all in all i was pretty disappointed with the show. this is supposed to be the all star cast, right?
please dont get me started on miss scallops and her two stitches. i thought about uploading a picture of my thumb but figure it might be able to be used against me in the future, so ill just describe. it was basically the same exact thing that happened to scallops, cleaning up flat irons and my dull, janky global jerked and all my weight through it right into the cuticle-side area of my thumb. ugh. it was horrible. i sat down for a minute and as soon as i no longer felt like passing out i sucked it up and went right back to the flat iron. in any other situation i probably would have gone to the hospital, my thumb will never be the same again, its seriously discreetly deformed, but when you work in a professional kitchen, theres not time to deal with that sort of shit. thats why it takes a special breed of person to handle it… why is scallops still on the show and jens not?? it really makes no sense to me. yes, her wet bacon and gnarly scrambled eggs were hardly ip to ripert par im sure, but dude, its jen, she really went home?!? i had her picked as the winner. serious sads. check out her exit interview with the stew.
i really dont understand how this season is operating so far. people like stephen (he should stick with foh) and scallop and tre and marcel are still in the kitchen, unscathed, yet eric riperts chef de cuisine was cut 2nd? i do not understand. last year i considered contacting bravo and informing them that i think padmas time is up and im just the woman to take her place. i think now might be that time… i want to love top chef, and ill probably always watch it, but why cant they live up to their potential?
