    I'd have thought John would have gotten the boot, since he's lost five times in a row now, but I guess maybe the other chefs view him as a nonthreat, and that's why he's still in the competition.

    I really wish more of the challenges were like the ones in London, where the chefs had to eat local dishes, then use that knowledge to recreate or twist local cuisine. As of now, I'm not a fan of the challenges at all.

When she blows, and it's bound to be coming, I think it will be BIG!!
    I've got one eyebrow raised for the blowup, too! Jenna is QUITE something . . . I'm not sure just WHAT, yet, but she is SOMETHING. Her day is DEFINITELY coming, and I hope to be there with a large, cold drink and a huge bowl of hot, extra-buttered popcorn to see how it plays out.

    Will watch again tomorrow, but I'll most likely sit with remote in hand, finger on the mute button. Jenna's voice hasn't yet stopped echoing in my head from last weeks episode.

    I think Jenna rubs me the wrong way because she is such a know it all. There's nothing wrong with being intelligent but it's like she rubbing it in everyones faces. She's getting used for her knowledge of knowing multiple languages, not because she's this great chef.

    Agreed.

    For me, Jenna is tied for most grating personality with Cheven and Nookie. And her bossiness just does NOT sit well with me, and never has.

    Will be so glad when Jenna is GONE! She is so condescending.

    Yeah, I need Jenna gone, and I also need Scheming Stocky Scruffy Guy gone too. He acts all crafty when someone else gets the boot besides him, as if he engineered it, but really he's kind of a dork.

    Not KIND of, MF . . .

    He IS a dork.

    Far as I'm concerned, he and Jenna are pretty much tied right now for biggest jerks on the show.

    Avery ain't no prize, either, but I can tolerate her (right now, at least!), better than I can Jenna or Nookie.

    This show is a disaster, from the opening credits in which they've forgotten to record a voiceover (except for the promo of the sponsor) to the whiny, unpersonable contestants, to the Survivor premise which is leaving the whiniest, least-competent contestants to enjoy a spectacular around-the-world journey.

    If Bravo didn't renew the ridiculous and entertaining "Chef Academy" after one season, I sincerely hope and doubt that they'll renew this expensive clunker.

    Anyway, judging by the amount of commentary here, pretty much no one is watching anyway (or no one is bothering to comment on something so wrong)!

    Curtis Stone looks good, but makes a lousy host.

    I would not be sad not to see this show come back.

    It reminds me, more, of Big Brother.
