    Joe shouting like Gordon does in HK was funny, just not in a good way. I love this show I so hope they don't change it

    Yea, can you guess who is their big sponsor? lol!

    I agree that I don't want this show to end up like HK. I stopped watching that after seeing it be the same old thing over and over, people who were clueless as to sear a scallop and GR screaming. I'll put up with the Walmart before I'd put up with that.

    Yeah, I watch HK and I don't need to see the same schtick from Ramsay on both shows. What I like about Masterchef is seeing the creative process in putting the dishes together and I also like the chef judges pointing out the details of what's good or bad about a dish.

    Not sorry Luca is safe because I have taken a shine to him. Would have preferred to see that skinny redhead or Morticia/Natasha go before Kathy though.

    I don't like all the Wal-Mart hawking either. Top of the line steaks?? Right. As if Ramsey, Joe, Graham serves Wal-Mart steaks at their restaurants? *giggle*

    We watched the last half hour again( hubby always misses that) and it was pretty obvious that Luca was far better than I originally thought

    I may do this as well Ellen. I am going to give it another week. I gave the bachelor and one other show one more week as well.
