These two episodes were fairly interesting, and add in there that both had desserts on it, it made me happy. What didn't make me happy was the elimination of Adriana, one of my early favorites. I took a liking to Kathy too (being Puerto Rican like Bime also helps), her cheesecake looked amazing and I hope her mishap with the cupcakes won't hinder her in the long run.
Overall, nothing much changed, but it's nice to see a bit more of these folks, just wish we could see even more. While very little Natasha was a very welcome thing in these episodes, Jordan's creepy sunken-in face and his arrogant attitude left a sour taste. I saw this behavior from him right from his audition. Hopefully neither he nor Natasha win. As for Howard, other than the cupcakes, he's been terrible so far. Hopefully we won't have another Tali in our hands.
I was curious as to why we had a Top 19 this time, with ten women and nine men, so I went back to the episode where they were chosen. On that moment when Gordon separates contestants into two groups and tells one group that they made it and the other group didn't, take a close look at the group who make it. In the front row, standing between Kathy and Bethy, there is another guy we'd never seen before, so we were supposed to have a Top 20. I wonder who the guywas and just why he didn't make it to the MasterChef kitchen, whether he quit due to whatever reason or was disqualified. It just makes me very curious.
