They Should have used Mr. Pibb

Mergh! It was a lackluster week for Top Chef.

For the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants had to create a dish that combined science & food. Meh. I don't know, that doesn't seem like a challenge that most professional chefs could accomplish. The worst were Paul & his non flavoured food, Beverly & her uninspired dish and Grayson & her terrible preparation. Winning immunity was Ty-lor & his penis and watermelon salad thing. Nude pics of Ty were released this week. He is very hairy & apparently the studio was cold.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants divided themselves into 3 groups of three to make BBQ. Wait, didn't this already happen? I get that this season is in Texas but SHEESH! enough w/ the chili, the Tex Mex & the cued meats. BOOOORRRRINNNNGG! And it was another all nighter marathon cooking session. This resulted in Sarah being shipped off to the hospital w/ severe smoke inhalation. Then Edward acted like a dick towards her because she was at the hospital for the majority of the prep & then he screeched at her while she was trying to plate & serve. The winning team consisted of Paul, Lindsay & Greyson's Asian spare ribs, brisket & BBQ chicken, and watermelon salad. Yum yum yum and more yum. The judges left out the part where they ripped on their under cooked Brussel sprouts. And packing it up was Chiclets Chris & his salty mess of ribs. He was also heavily criticized for making a Dr. Pepper sauce. SB & I make Dr. Pepper sauce for our ribs all the damn time & it's fucking delicious....what did you do, Chiclets?!

Next week: restaurant wars.

I've seen Dr. Pepper in a lot of recipes. Not sure what went wrong. Edward was kind of a dick, but in his defense, he was up all night. It screws with your head. I've worked overnight for a week and then gone back to regular day shifts the next week. I've got to believe it is like being a zombie.

If they had been given a chance to get 6 hours of sleep, I bet they don't flake and pre-slice the meat. I wanted Edward to stand up to Tom when asked about the early slicing and say, "Well I had just been up for 40 hours, we lost a teammate, and I panicked. Guess I wasn't thinking clearly. While Rumsfeld defended sleep deprivation as an interrogation technique, many argue that it is a form of torture."

I hope it is better this week. If it stays like this, I'm leaning towards bailing. Is there anyone on the show you are rooting for? The only chef I liked was eliminated unfairly in a double elimination.

Jon: first of all HAHAHAHA! Thanks for the great belly laugh. Second, yes there are some talented people but nobody is a real stand out to me....but I do have a soft spot for Grayson whom I doubt will make it to the final 3
