That's a Real-a Italiano!

Top Chef recap time!

For the Quickfire, the cheftestants were greeted by Padma and Isaac Mizrahi. He had a cute talk show on the Style Network, not sure if it still exists. Anyway, the cheftesants had to create a dish that was biutiful, all style no taste. Sucking it were Dale and his plate of scraps. Whenever Dale get a bad critique, he acts like he doesn't care. "I don't have to impress Isaac Mizrahi!" Ummm...yeah actually you kinda do, seeing as how he's JUDGING you and all. Plus, Tre's sparse plate of dots & Angelo's vacuum packed pile of puke and he spelled "crocodile" incorrectly. Idiot! The big weiner was Blais and his black ice cream. It reminded of that toy I wanted when I was a kid were you "grow" rocks under water.

For the Elimination Challenge, the judges had to prepare a dish for a small crowd at an excuslive Italian restaurant. They were divided into 3 groups of three by the KNIFE BLOCK O' DOOM for the App, Pasta and Meat courses. Antonia and her simple mussel stew won. Hurray! All the boy cheftestants tore her apart, they didn't even clap for her. Assholes! And packing it up was Tre and his poopy risotto that had too many large cumbersome veggies and not enough cream.

Why is Mike I still here?!

Can't believe I missed this. I was looking for it a few days ago. It was here but I must not have scrolled down.

Anyhow-quickfire was a weak challenge. I don't know why they bother with that crap.

The elimination challenge was a decent one. And you are correct that the losing contestants were not very gracious in defeat. However, I thought Fabio should have won and Isabella should have gone home.

It is going to get interesting. Any of the remaining contestants is capable of winning the whole thing.

Jon: agreed it's going to be a tight competition until the end!

Really? Fabio as the winner? Meh
