The one thing Josie does right (it's certainly not food-related) is sizing up the situation at judges' table when she's on the hot seat, and tailoring her answers accordingly. She was even more obvious about it than usual this time, which is why I'm so shocked that the judges didn't press harder for the truth. It's just tragic all around.

I saw Padma as being the judge who was strongly pushing the elimination of Kristin. Granted, we saw a heavily edited verision of the judging but I believe Tom was grasping for anything he could, to hang his hat on, in order to keep Kristin. This ouster made me sick.
LOL @ the Broadway musical.
Padma neglected to add, that Kristen had to go just like the executive chefs in seasons past. One such chef that comes to mind is Tre Wilcox in his first season on the show, when he was actually a contender and expected to go far... There were a number of occasions when the same happened, so I expect it now and so should the chefs.
Looks like one more "reality" show I can drop from my watch list. Kristen has been at the top for so long and Josie at the bottom, but they send Kristen home? I wish Kristen had been willing to sink to Josie's level this once and raked her over the coals. This is not good, dramatic tv as the misguided judges seem to think. Watching Josie isn't even close to be mildly entertaining. Bye bye, Top Chef.

I wonder if the other two didn't speak up because they knew Kristen was tougher competition and a chance for her to be eliminated would help them.
