    There is a family-run bakery near my home with really great stuff. However, it is painful for me to give them my hard-earned money because they are rude and impersonal. It starts my day in a significantly negative of way, and I just don't want to go back.

    I'd rather have decent + "love" than great + "a-hole". The former makes my day happier more than the latter, and therefore it is more valuable to me.

    I know this is against the grain, but meh. Who cares. I'm too old to deal with dissent, too.

    I hope Carla keeps serving her food with love.
    Jexter, I totally agree with you. There is a restaurant across the street from my work and I eat there almost every day because I like the way it feels going in there and most of their food.

    I remember the soup nazi on Seinfeld, he was obnoxious to everyone but they keep coming back because the food was great.

    Carla for the win!

    Seriously, I could not be happier now if Carla stole the win away from Stefan.

    I love Carla and hope she wins. She adheres to the KISS principle (keep it simple stupid) and it has helped her thus far. I doubt she'll win, but I have enjoyed her light-hearted, delightful personality this season. She doesn't sweat the small stuff and has competed in an above board manner. Go Carla!

    I'm so glad she won the car last night. She's won two of the best prizes this season-those Super Bowl tickets and that car. Loved her dancing in the airport at the beginning of the episode.

    Carla all the way! Hootie Hoo!!!

    I loved her gawky run when she'd won the car and was running up to the judging table for the keys. She has such great energy and enthusiam. I'd love to see her win.

    I would absolutely LOVE to see Carla take it all (but if not Carla, then Hosea - no way do we want Stefan to satisfy his ego by being able to claim the prize).

    I went to sleep while it was on, and made sure I got up in enough time to watch it before I came to work this morning, and I was so happy that Carla won!!!! And then she cried and I cried for her!!!! She came kinda out of nowhere and has been like BOOM!

    I hope she wins!!!

    Yea for Carla! I was so happy to see her win the car!! I know she's been underestimated and after last night's show, it's clearer to me and her peers that she could win it all.

    Like many of you, I love her personality and her simplicity-with-love approach to food so I'd be ecstatic if she won! Go Carla

    What a refreshing personality! I adore this woman, and I adore her approach to cooking and her approach to life. I think she came into her own and revealed why she is a great chef once she settled down and allowed hersaelf to trust her instincts. Cooking with love and joy doesn't hurt, either! She is bringing the goods, too. I hope she wins!
