I believe they both wanted "loose cannon" Jen because she's got the great resume, while they both wanted to avoid picking Jaime "soups n scallops" because she's slow at prep. Jaime, however, was picked by Mike and was able to produce without any mention of her having problems with her speed.

Mike is a sore loser. As Richard was modest and humble. As glad that he won. A nice guy winning for once!
I didn't really care who won since both Mike and Richard had their good points and their annoying points and I think they're both talented.
All I care about right now is that I finally found Mike Isabella's recipe for the Pepperoni Sauce that he made on the final show!!!
I had never heard of that before (not counting pepperoni in pasta sauce) and it sounded wonderful. Can't wait to try it.
(and yes, I know how much fat will be in there and I don't care.)
