    I guess I'm different in that I like all kids, no matter their personality... because they're kids. The only thing that would bother me, (and I haven't seen it in this show), is if the kid was excessively rude or disrespectful. Then I might be tempted to say I'm not fond of a particular child.

    I want to be clear that I like Dara, I just didn't appreciate the comment... at the end of the challenge they were all hugs, so I don't think it meant much overall... and I think Sara really understands it without anyone's help.

    I'm consistantly impressed with Jack. My favourite line of his was when he instructed his partner to spray the pan with "altitude". Most kids would say from 'higher up' or something... it isn't the first time I've noticed his vocabulary is extensive for a ten year old!

    ETA: I know that people have the right to like whoever the want. I get that. I guess I'm just at a loss when I see people who don't like kids because they aren't acting like little adults. Age , to me, is very relevant.

    When I mentioned that age was irrelevant to me, I was specifically talking about when hyperactivity and mania come into play. Don't like it in kids/don't like it in adults. Kids, in general, are usually fun to be around and talk to. I am also not a fan of pretentious people, age not withstanding, but I cut kids more of a break in that area; they make me laugh. HATE arrogant people....all ages.

    What I've enjoyed about this show:
    (a) Finally! A network TV program demonstrates that food for kids does NOT need to be dumbed down. (I've known this firsthand from over a decade of tutoring Korean/Korean-American kids.) Seriously, restaurants, get rid of bland, fat "happy meals" and "kiddie menus."
    (b) Manners and sportsmanship. Obviously, the casting personnel weeded out the "young Krissy" types.

    I have a friend who is a chicken fingers type of eater.....eeewwwww; her elementary school daughter loves veggies, salads, and eats more like her mother should. This kid is up for almost anything! She is most impressive! Don't know where she got her talent for good eating, because it certainly wasn't from her mother! I am soooo proud of her! I don't know if she cooks, though.

    I HATE arrogance as well. But not in kids. I tend to want to give them a lot of years to learn better. Because what they usually reflect is what they see in the adults close to them... they need a chance to grow and mature into the person they will be before being put to judgement.

    JMO, of course.

    I'm with you on not dumbing down foods for kids. I introduced my own to a wide variety of cuisines as soon as they were old enough to chew. They each developed their likes and dislikes, but they had more to choose from than burgers and peanut butter and jelly; they had both, of course, but so much more.

    I love the kids on this show. I don't find them to be obnoxious. They all seem to be pretty level headed and frankly more mature than some adults I know.

    Also watching Masterchief Junior On Demand. Some of the editing makes it very obvious who is going or who is not. Regardless those kids are fantastic and it is amazing that focusing on a skill like that that young just makes the person mature faster. These kids are articulate and focused and know what they want. Jack is strategizing as to what to pick to cook that would be hard for his main competitor. While their focus and dedication is amazing and inspiring at their age some of that potential arrogance and cockiness as an adult would be hard to tolerate.

    What I like about this show is that the kids show more sportsmenship than any of the adults ever have shown.
