    Back to the show.....I don't think Lisa is, necessarily snobbish, but I think she can be snobbish when she wants to. She talks about what she knows, in terms that she knows, like you said. I think she would explain her terms if you asked her. And I Would Wear Her Out Asking Questions...again and again, and again!!! I really think she has improved immensely since the beginning. One thing I do know is that you don't want to dumb something down, since you don't really know what people may know and what they don't. That could be insulting to the person/people to whom you're talking. I've been caught in a situation like that before, and it can be very uncomfortable.

    I agree she has improved. And I'd rather look something up than have someone talk down to me. I usually skip the dumbed-down shows. Now that doesn't mean that I like the ones to where they throw around as many technical terms as possible to show off.

She was condescending to RR ( a big No No ) and let RR do all the work. She may have won in prior episodes, but on last week's episode, she definitely deserved to be in the bottom. Sorry, but I just go by what I see on the screen.
    During the last judging they seemed to be giving Kelsey the message that while she wasn't leaving that night; she also had NO chance of winning this. I think that's the message she got too based on her reaction.

    I like Rachel Ray, but Kelsey is hard to take with that voice and attitude and I doubt that RR is thrilled with her after the last ep.

    Allie, I agree about the even numbered films and especially about the EVIL one. All of the movies had their moments, but the even ones were by far the best. I don't think the Romulan comments about Lisa are mean or disrespectful; just an observation. And a very funny one too. Who knows, she may be a Trek fan too.

    This stinks!! I can not believe that they sent Kelsey home. She was far and away the most poised on camera. I know that she will end up successful though and look forward to keeping up with her career.

    FN made a big mistake in letting her go and keeping that nasty Lisa.

    Wow...I'm really shocked. I thought Kelsey had this in the bag - and rightfully so.

    Guess I'll root for Aaron now.

    This was a bad nite for my Sunday nite favorites - first Mikey V got booted from Design Star (also a big mistake IMO) and then Kelsey.

    Shane and Kelsey....off they go to gain some life experience and maturity. Sounds good to me. Kelsey made toy food for a toy restaurant...almost Easy-Bake Oven, even.

    Blew me away that Aaron's chicken parm got a much, much better review that Kelsey's chicken parm. How embarrassing! Her Munchkinland/Lilliputian proportions were unimpressive to the judges. I was very happy for Aaron, who had even forgotten to make her dish. Whoops!....There it is!!!

    I don't think that there is one of the finalists that I would tune and watch. Lisa has the personality of a bee-atch, Kelsey (tho she is out) has one of those voices that sound like nails on a chalkboard, Adam is just a fool, no wonder his restaurant went belly up If he gets the new show, I suggest he wear a clown costume and do only circus foods like deep fried milkyways, deep fried "elephant ears" Corn dogs, and grilled hot dogs made with unknown meats. , and Aaron (when he does talk) makes little sense. Tho I do think Aaron is the best of the remaining four.

    I can and they made the right call, she needs to grow up a bit.
