    If I never see oversized gold jewelry on someone again it'll be too soon.

    It looks like we have our token quirky Asian chef.

    He's not Asian, he's Hawaiian, which makes him American.

    I'm with you Pink. That huger than huge jewelry is way more than I want to see. Now, as far as his heritage is concerned, being born in Hawaii, Gene could be many nationalities, mostly Polynesian or Asian. Whatever Gene's genes are, yes, he is an American. I remember LeeAnn referring to herself Asian several times, or Asian-American. Anyhoo, let's hope the new season has some great personalities.

    Actually, I'm a mutt and only said Norwegian to make a point. However, I am mostly of Norwegian and Finnish descent with a smattering of French and a dab of English (I think).

    I'm in the vicinity anyway.
