    It happens every season, and almost every other challenge ends in a tie as well. It's happened so much that it has to be rigged.

    But oh well.

    Jon had a really good edit. Good cook, good team player, no hard feelings about anything. I wanted him in the final but I think he'll make out fine. I wonder with a less outlandish hairstyle if he might have done better.

    I would have liked to have seen a Jon and Janel finale. Sure, he'll be "fine" but I doubt he'll earn the equivalent salary as Janel ($250,000, per year) for a very long time, if ever.

    In the end, I think Janel was the one to beat the entire season. Congrats to her!

    I liked all of the last 3 but I thought JaNel was not only competent in the kitchen but had a more professional attitude. As to the dishes always ending in a tie with one last dish to go...WAY too contrived! It's insulting to the intelligence of the viewer.

    I thought that was a one time (or one year) payment with no promise beyond that.

    Jon wanted the world, with a ridiculous mohawk, or whatever was under that bandanna.

    Mary was proud of her squeaky voice, hanging tongue, deerlight stare. Thought it was endearing somehow.

    JaNel was the only one with any natural professionalism. Why don't the contestants understand that matters?

    I am so glad that Ja'Nel won...she did deserve it! I was so disappointed that Dan tried to sabotage Mary. If I knew which restaurant Dan was 'head chef' at, I would boycott that place...I feel bad for his employers. He is such an idiot...no wonder no one likes him.

    Good finale and good winner.

    However, this season was dragged out too long and the countless number of cliffhangers took away from the enjoyment.

    Whoops. Forgot to watch. I don't feel that down about it, really.

    I finally got around to (almost) watching the finale!

    Step 1: Jon gets eliminated over Mary
    Step 2: Gordon sez, "This year is the year of the ladies!"
    Step 3: I feel justified in my belief (since the beginning of the season) that Ja'Nel winning was predetermined
    Step 4: Skip to the end of the show to verify that Ja'Nel won
    Step 5: Delete program from DVR
    Step 6: Watch the first episode of Top Chef Masters

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Hahahahaha! I just skipped to the end of the finale. Mary's husband has a very weird appearance! I am sure glad I stopped by because I would have missed that Top Chef Masters in on again. Luckily they repeat often so I will watch the first show here at 9am. Cool.

    Gordon is a fitness freak, as is his wife. There is no way that did not enter into his decision. It is hard to dismiss some bias when it is an integral part of your being. I pegged her as the winner early on, as well. I missed many episodes since BB has taken over my brain.
