I agree that working the front is loaded with problems. They are chefs and this is a cooking competition. I am glad they have eliminated decorating but adding a dish to the front person's job makes no sense when they cannot be in the kitchen to control the outcome. Kevin screwed up on her lamb entree but was not called out for that or at least we didn't see it.
Laurine sealed her fate when she told Tom she would not send her dish out if it wasn't right. Had she said that she felt uneasy leaving it in anothers hands and had to concentrate on her front of the house job the outcome may have been different. However she was a terrible host!!
Mike is going to be in the finals, I can see it now. Evil Mike vs sweetheart Kevin.
