I was prepared to delete the season pass from my TiVo if Josh and Becky were in the finale. Although I'm pretty sure the eventual winner has been preselected to be Josh, I'm still looking forward to Christine competing next week.
I wish they played the older episodes prior to the new show like they do on Project Runway. I think we would be able to track the preselection of Josh more easily if we got to see some of those episodes again.
Didn't he make a dessert when they invited all the dismissed people back for their second chance? I guess it must have been a good dessert, but I am sure now that there were other, more commendable and complex dishes made, yet he was selected as one of the two finalists. The other guy was the person who was pretty much disliked by everybody. Having the remaining contestants select between the two ( wasn't it fruit tarts?) seemed to take the judges out of it, but I wonder if everybody knew who owned which tart by the totally different fruit selected by each guy.
Ahhh conspiracy theory raises its ugly head again
I do not think Josh deserves to be in the finale. I didn't particularly like Becky and she has been slipping, but I thought Josh should never have been back in the first place. Every cooking show/chef/judge I've watched has said that the first thing a professional cook must know is how to make a perfectly cooked egg in any style. I've been hoping for a Christine win since very early on and I am still hoping. Almost every contestant I've seen has talked about how they are doing this for a parent/grandparent who is gone or who has helped them through bad experiences, so Christine mentioning her deceased mother in answer to a question is not off-putting to me in the slightest.
If Josh does win, that's one more reality show I can cross off my watch list. The number I have left can be counted on the fingers of one hand.
Well, I either want Christine to win, or have Gordon Ramsay enter the game and take them both out and win it for himself.
The reason, for me, is Christine's fried chicken leg. It looked way too brown and not that moist. Well it is pertty hard to dry out dark meat chicken but that plate did not look good. Even if the kale had been perfect why put it in a seperate dish? Offered by another I think they would have been scolded for poor presentation.
That said, I want her to win. Creating a cookbook is the perfect job for her and without this exposure it would not sell.
Since we can't taste the food, we don't know what is really good and what is ordinary. We can't second guess the judges on taste, just on what we see.
