    Top Chef 2/1 Show Discussion **Spoilers**

    Pee Wee Herman! HA HA!

    Can't wait for this one...

    Please keep all discussion in here until 11PM PT / 2AM ET.

    Enjoy the show!

    Where else would they be going but...The Alamo!

    Best gag so far: Quickfire was a pancake challenge, and after tasting each dish, Pee Wee said, "I have to say it's the best pancake I've ever had!" for each and every pancake. It actually ticked Grayson off when she realized he wasn't just talking about hers.

    I was a bit leery of Peewee as a guest judge, but I'm actually kinda loving him.

    I really want to have some background on the production, with the chefs having to find a restaurant to cook in. There had to be some clearances done on the restaurants. It couldn't have just been randomly chosen restaurants.

    All these years and I still love Pee Wee!

    NOOOOOOOOO!!!! Not Grayson!!!!

    Clearly there is no God. If there were Sarah would be gone.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    No kidding. I hate that the last two women left--beyond whoever comes out of last chance kitchen--are the two mean girls. The two guys left, on the other hand, have been basically decent for the whole show. It just leaves the impression that women have to be bitchy to succeed as chefs. I know that isn't true, but it lends credence to the people who think it is.

    True, but the only woman to ever win (as far as I remember) was Stephanie, who was a class act throughout the whole thing.

    It's shaping up to be like season 1, with Harold and Dave (nice guys) and Tiffany (girl villain). Granted, Tiffany definitely learned a lesson from watching herself on TV, and has mellowed since then...

    I don't like the character of Pee Wee, and this is nothing against Paul Rueben.

    Edward! Thanks, I will never make pancakes the normal way again. I love this idea. I always make pancakes on the thin side to create those edges and he found a way to get all edges. Brilliant.

    I wasn't that thrilled with this challenge. It was just too convoluted. I prefer them to have less extenuating circumstances so the food is the star.

    A skinless, boneless chicken breast just isn't good under the best of circumstances so I knew Ed and Grayson would be in the bottom. I crisp skin but have never put it in a salad; what a great idea. Very cool idea and good for low carb eating.

    I tend to be leery of anything Paul Reubens is in, particularly in a contest type show; how exactly can I trust the judgment of somebody who was busted for child porn?

    That said, Grayson will probably get the Fan Favorite vote. Maybe Lindsay and Sarah will be going home in the coming weeks. I really can't think of any other consolation prizes.
