    I think Michael will be the next to go. It just seems like he and his brother have it in the bag, but it seems something surprising is going to happen from the preview.

    Won't bother me a bit if he does. I've really had enough of his ego.

    Same here. He's a brilliant chef, but his ego will get him kicked out. Last episode that was his problem. He was too confident in his work and he didn't execute properly.
