    Who Do You Want to Win? (TC:AS)

    It's an ever-generic question that is asked with any competitive reality show, but now that we're down to the FINAL6, I thought it would garner some good discussion. So I ask, who do you want to see win?

    Carla for the win! I do believe she would have won in her season without her sous vide mistake.

    Carla--not only can she cook, but she seems like a genuinely nice person who keeps out of the drama; even among the other contestants, no one seems to dislike her

    I hadn't been keeping careful track of people's week to week records and had no idea Tiffany had a record that out of line with the rest of the final six. I knew she hadn't won anything, but I didn't realize she'd been in the bottom that often. If she makes it through to the final three, it really would be a shock.

    But what about Mike? Yes, he's been recognized in the QFs, but some of those highs are from group challenges. And he's only been called to the judges' table once during an elimination challenge for a good dish.

    I agree that Tiffany is not up to par, which is such a disappointment after knowing how she did last season. She was up there as a contender... now she's on her last lifeline.

    It's a tough argument: is the weaker on Mike, who has won a QF but never really shined in an elimination challenge, or Tiffany, who has had a number of lows in both QFs (albeit that some of them are from group challenges) and eliminations but has also been recognized as one of the top chefs in more eliminations than Mike has?

    Actually, the only reason I didn't mention Mike's record is that I didn't really expect it to be any better. But people were so high on Tiffany during her season that it was more of a surprise to me to see her actual numbers not being that good.

    I'm a Carla fan, I admit. Carla for the win.

    Top Three favorites are/were Tre, Fabio and Carla.

    I'll be alright if Blaise wins, but would much, much, much rather see Carla take the prize. Dale will be hard to beat. The other remaining chefs don't even belong there imho!

    Gotta agree with you there. I still don't know why he was chosen for AS. Did Kevin turn it down or something?

    But yeah, people had a high opinion on Tiffany during S7 for a good reason. Before her elimination, she was never called to the judges' table for a low performance. She was called seven times for a high performance, at that. The only time she ever got a low was when she was eliminated. So yeah, she sadly lost of her spark this season. It's a disappointment.



    ETA: I just realized that Mike has never been called as one of the top chefs during an elimination challenge individually... in both of his seasons. His highs during eliminations have been group challenges. Hmmm...
