    I agree prhoshay . . . . one season is enough.

    For quite awhile now I've been foreseeing a Nookie vs Avery finish - just because they are two of the chefs I liked least. I'm guessing that Liz will be the next to go and then John, who's been my favorite simply because he's been the least annoying.

    Not sure what rock Nookie has been living under, but that rock doesn't get cable or else he'd have known that a reality tv show shot in various locations around the world would include some type of physical activity where your feet need to move fast.

    Finally caught up with the last two episodes...

    Jenna was a mean, selfish person, and I was glad to see her go, skills or not. Let her go run her own kitchen somewhere as long as I don't have to go.

    Poor John, he lost it at deliberations. He's been the only chef I've thought was worthy of winning the show, and the only one that didn't annoy me with their antics or their attitude. Nookie is a buffoon, I want him to fall in a rice paddy and never return, lol. (And I'm a Red Sox fan!) Lizz is okay but inconsistent. Avery is a basket case, and Nicole was inconsistent enough to go.

    If John doesn't win, I'll stop watching whenever he gets the boot. If Nookie wins, they shouldn't bother doing a second season. Or if they do, they need to get a new casting person.

    I caught 2 episodes of this show & stopped watching. Nothing about this show clicked for me. Perhaps if this were a version of Top Chef I might still be watching. Curtis Stone & Cat Corra can not carry this show.

    Seems like it's been a long time since I watched this. Guess two weeks IS a long time when it comes to reality tv. They are in Argentina tonight.

    I don't need to see the finale -- Nookie (or whatever his name is) is in the finals and John went home.

    This show will never be satisfying, because the food is secondary to the scheming and plotting. A no-talent like Nookie rises to the top because he's more adept at throwing people under the bus than the other chefs. What's the point of this show? The biggest jerk wins? They'll probably judge solely on food in the finale, but the chefs who lasted are so sub-par that the whole meal will be a big letdown. I wouldn't be too proud to be the winner of this show.

    I liked this final four. I wish they had been the only cast from the beginning.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    If they had left in the Top Chef elements of the show (food) and some of the Amazing race elements (travel to interesting locations around the world) and left out the Survivor elements (Voting out a competitor, alliances , and scheming/backstabbing) I might have really enjoyed this show.

    Aaaaaand John doesn't win, so I'm right there with you MFW. Hands down that's who I wanted.
    Now I guess I'll pull for Avery (or whoever the red-headed chick with the tats is), but I don't need to watch.
