I really thought they'd eliminate both Cutter and Francis B. This show becomes too focused on the drama and creating suspense (true of pretty much all reality shows). The voiceover at the beginning promised a "shocking" elimination. Not really, when you consider how bad Francis B's egg rolls were. Courtney's lips are always way too bright.
I too cannot stand Joe. Too arrogant and mean. I also don't like when they continue to criticize the eliminated contestant's dish (Joe particularly harshly) after announcing the elimination in order to explain the decision. This seems unnecessary to me. The person knows that they got eliminated because their dish wasn't good and had already been harshly criticized when the dish was tasted. IMO there's no need to do that again after the person has been eliminated.
