Totally agree - I really enjoy this show but this season's contestants are just awful. It's like nobody showed up for the talent search and the producers went into the street begging people to be on the show - or maybe in the parking lot of a B grade culinary school. Whatever.
I'm glad that Ram didn't go back on his word regarding Virginia (I'm sure the lawyers "helped" him to see the light) but I certainly wasn't impressed with Virginia going back on her word that she was leaving. If Ram could have changed his mind about Virginia and legally made it stick (taking away immunity), I would have fired both of them on the spot.
