    Me either, Fire Woman. I get more depressed watching him churn out pretty good food, than I do for anything else that happens on this show.

    Count me in. I have liked a good bit of what I've seen of his cooking, but his attitude and big mouth turn me off completely. If you are goodat what you do, you do not need to trash others. The best of them, like Jennifer and the brothers may sometimes overly stress how good they are, but I noticed them talking very much trash about their competitors.

    Is it only me but does that man have a neck? All I see is a head & shoulders. His attitude is annoying.

    I finally figured it out. He reminds me of George Costanza from Seinfeld (who also has no neck). Who else would have the lack of compassion to complain that someone else was playing the "cancer card" to win.

    Just don't lick any envelopes he buys.

    I just saw a rerun of Iron Chef America with Richard Blais going against Mario Batali. Eli was his soux chef in the battle. He looked a lot younger and thinner!
    By the way, Blais lost.

    I didn't really care too much about him until his rude run-in with Robin. Now I can't wait until he gets the boot.
