I think some of these people were hired for the show. At least, I need to believe that....because people just can't be that bad, or can they? And I don't mean being unable to cook. I'm referring to the strange mix of ingredients they use...like the man who heavily covered his food in red pepper flakes. Or the one who used curry and something else together.
The lawyer that got sent home deserved it for his attitude alone. What a pompous ass.
