I thought it was going to be a Sharone/Lee finale (or even Mike). Just that everytime Whitney aka Pastry Princess lands in bottom 2, they give them a dessert challenge which would surely make her win the battle. Thought that was a bit suspicious.
I'm going to watch this one again.
I totally love that one chef (Joe?) the one that does Italian food or something. I watched on and off. I'm not a big fan of competition shows but I like watching his critiques.
i hate the fat one, he's like mr softee (no pun intended) he lets anyone through and gordan and the bald guy have to step up and say no, no.
I love this show! I think the judges balance each other well.
there were several I liked. Truck driver guy who made the mahi mahi and the guy with the long hair and piercing who made his own chorizo.

This is the first season I'm getting to watch this show, and I have to say it is refreshing to see Gordon's softer side. Personally, I think he has these two sides for a reason (and not drama) - with the MasterChefs, some of them do not know how to do some proper steps and are learning. The one who make "Hell's Kitchen" should know a lot of the basics that he yells them out for.
I agree on the middle man in the judge's line up - sometimes I think he's a bit too soft-hearted and says yes all the time. While that is not always the case, he just feels like the Paula of the three, i.e. can't say anything too bad about the contestant.
What I find immensely funny is seeing the times where they go back for seconds and the like of the dish. That has to be a huge compliment to the people watching it at home now - even if they're eliminated fairly quickly. It shows that they do have the skills and such, and may have only cracked under the pressure of the contest - which are two totally different things.
I liked Mahi Mahi guy, and alligator guy (from the first night). None of the ladies (other than the Scots woman who charmed Gordon) have stood out for me so far. I hate seeing them grovel and usually tune them out then and ther.
