    Boo. I was rooting for Shirley. I wouldn't have given Brooke the pork belly if I had been Shirley. At least the Cream of Mushroom soup guy didn't make it to the end. He grated on my nerves all season. Every time they showed him, I was like "You cheated in round one you truffle smuggler"

    I couldn't get too worked up about this season and the finale...I never went on board with bringing all these former contestants back to compete with new contestants...seemed like a cheap way to do an all stars show without spending more money another show. Plus, I think it does a disservice to the new contestants who have to compete against veterans who have been thought the Top Chef experience and understand the nuances of of the challenges and how to approach them. I was disappointed in this aspect of this season. Having said that, I was rooting for Shirley and thought she could nail it. I just have a visceral dislike of Brooke and thought she was condescending towards Shirley and snarky. There also seemed to be cliquishness between Sheldon, Casey and Brooke that didn't sit well with me...I empathized with Shirley's feeling of being left out. Between last chance kitchen and the return of veteran chefs, I don't think the newbies had a chance of making it to the finals. I hope they go back to the original format of the show next season. By the way, who won fan favorite?

    We have a running joke in our house about describing food as gelatinous because we have heard Andrew Zimmern describe so many awful-sounding foods that way on the show Bizarre Foods!
