I haven't really been overly impressed by any of the contestants, but if I were going to root for anyone at this point, it would be Holli, simply because she produced three good desserts without acting as if it were an impossible task. Someone should alert the pie-impaired contestants over at Top Chef.
And while I agree that Ben has been a jerk, he was the only one of those who got to go on the shopping trip who was smart enough to think about something like a string of pearls for his wife. A good string of pearls is never going to go out of style and has the possibility of increasing in value. Metallic skinny pants do not.
