    Top Chef New Orleans - 2/5 Finale Show Discussion

    "Finale" - The final two chefs open pop-up restaurants for their final challenge.

    Who will be Top Chef? Nick or Nina?

    I'm not happy. Ugh! But then again, TC has a habit of picking the person I didn't root for. Oh well.

    Damn it but oh well. At least it's not America's doing.

    I started watching Bravo After Dark (at least, I think that's what it's called), and Tom C. called in. He said that Nina had the best food all season, and Nick had the best food during the finale.

    I would have been happy with any of the top four making it to the end and winning.

    Congratulations to Nick :-)

    I mean, if it was America's doing, I'd be going on rampages right now. I've learned to accept decisions from well-known judges or individuals more than anonymous cults.

    I'm not pleased with the result but it is what it is. What I found interesting was how passionately Tom was arguing for Nick even though the others seemed to have a different view of his food. "My duck was overcooked" "Mine was cooked PERFECTLY!" "I think treatment of servers should factor into this" then the camera shows Tom giving a little glare. Then again, he probably didn't want Nick withholding his penis from him. Out of eleven seasons, only TWO of the winners have been female. I'm sensing a pattern here...

    I'm fine with judges making the decisions. What I sometimes don't like is how the judges' discussion is edited. I thought on tonight's show they did a good job of giving balanced comments. On some shows, they try so hard to fool viewers with the editing, that you have no idea how the judges arrived at the decision.

    I was rooting for Nina. Nick's yelling at the staff was very unprofessional. I understand he was frustrated with his staff, but that was a pretty immature way to handle it. It sure looked like his expediter wasn't on top of things. Since they were supposedly given trained staff, I wouldn't dock him any points for staff missteps, but I would have docked him some points for his yelling.

    I DVRd WWHL after the finale, so I'll have to watch the end of it to see who got Fan Favorite.

    Like many, I'm not happy with the outcome, but then, that's the fault of the editing they gave us all season, isn't it? During the portion of WWHL that I saw, Andy spent more time on clips where Nick looked bad than good, so what should we expect?

    I would really have preferred Nina to stand with the pantheon, because she isn't prone to fits of rage or moments of neurosis or douchebaggery like Nick was. But I guess Tom talked the others into crowning Nick for some reason. Oh well.
