    I, too, was surprised that Bobby let Joe go. I thought he had a great deal of potential, a great attitude, and really wanted to learn. He was probably my favorites of all of them.

    I hope Carol picks it up again next week. Jamie can just go and take his shrieking with him.

    Since I can still edit my post, I did. I don't know where I got the name Joe stuck in my head to go with that face. Go Mike!

    All I'm going to say is I'm *STILL* surprised that Wasabi chips (which looked like the wasabi peas I can get in the store) actually WORKED with the other ingredients he had (potato chips and a couple of sweet items).

    I had to listen several times, but it was said the winner would give the Chef an advantage. I took it to mean Anne or Bobby.

    Ahhh...I must have equated "chef" to "contestant" in my mind. So many of these cooking shows involve chefs, that when they say "the winning chef," it refers to a contestant.

    I was also sorry that dancing Joe got eliminated. He had such a good attitude and he did do well in the earlier challenges. I thought Jamie would annoy me but I'm strangely enjoying his schtick. I admire them all, as horrible as their abilities seemed, I wouldn't do very well with some of the things they've had to try!

    I find Jaime to be pretty funny, he does have some great one-liners. I don't like how he gets hyper competitive, though, that's an ugly trait. The contestants overall are very likable, I haven't found one jerk yet. Mike was especially likable with how much fun he had with the challenges this past episode.

    Honestly, the show's premise is so good, but the execution is flawed. It feels like the chefs are doing this to teach the contestants just enough to snag their teaching chef a win in the end, instead of focusing on actually teaching these people to cook for real, considering the worst contestants get eliminated without learning much, if anything at all.

    They should make an alternate version of this show, actually, considering that after so long, they won't change how they do it. Cast less people, spend weeks teaching them to cook a variety of things without eliminating anyone, then have everyone cook in the finale for a grand prize. I think that would make for a much better show.

    ^ Wasn't there a show kind of like that? I can't remember details but there was a French guy (I think) who worked with all the contestants...sorry my memory's so bad, I just recall that one of the men turned out to be a porn star! It was a good show, though.

    They do actually teach the contestants different skills, we just don't see it.

    I kinda love this show. While it's a reality cooking show, it is mostly done in good fun. Sure, Jamie is a little hyper and braggy, but he's not lobbing personal attacks or launching sabotage moves. I'm glad he won on his team. Mike is a nice guy, but he seemed a bit behind the curve (though can learn from practice at home). I'm also glad Amber won; she seems driven, although as bit as nervous in the kitchen as Jamie. Danny came across as a good guy too and learned to appreciate kitchen skills, but since he's a radiologist I have little doubt he could afford a couple of cooking classes to further his skills. All in all (perhaps it's RH fatigue) I like seeing good natured competition shows, where no one is pulling out tabloids or receipts and just having a good time to share with the viewers. And I say this with an unending distaste for Bobby Flay, going back to his stint on Grillin' & Chillin' in the late 90s.
