    But I'd love to see Carla stay because her palate seems better than some (Jamie & Michelle come to mind), and I love her quirky personality.
    I hadn't heard that. This is an interesting little tid bit. It will be fun to watch who it is. Carla and Melissa are the only ones, now, that would surprise me. Though I adore Carla, she is not radiating end material. What a nice surprise this would be.

    I adore Carla, too. She won't/shouldn't win, but what a great lady!

    I really enjoy Carla; however I felt that her performance this week was a bit lackluster. I really would like her to show her strength in another area besides pastry. She has to trust her own instincts also, it seems she settles rather than try to find a solution to the problem. If she makes it to the final four I'll be extremely surprised

    I also like Carla, but I agree with those who say she needs to begin to follow her gut, and she better do it quickly. She has the instincts, but she doesn't follow through on them. We have yet to see that spectacular meal from her, and I am hoping to see it before she's ousted.

    Which is probably why she's a caterer and not an executive chef in her own restaurant. Like Casey, she needs time to think through what she wants to do and follow her instincts/spirit guides.

    She is so entertaining to watch...she reminds me of a bird. However I do think the other chef's have won more. I just really like her.

    She reminds me of a Fraggle.

    I think she stepped it up last night - plus she made a comment about having been classically trained, and that she needed to use that training more. This could help her next week in the eel challenge that in the previews seems to throw everyone for a loop.

    I love Carla. She is a hoot. She reminds me of Marge Simpson so much though that it distracts me when I see her. Her and Fabio make this season for me because they are so funny.
