I so agree with this. What bothered me the most about Betty was her unprofessionalism. Marcel is merely 23 years old. Letting a 23 year old get under your skin and cause you to throw a tantrum shows an utter lack of confidence. I think Betty realized she was over her head in this competition with her "comfort food" skills. She felt threatened and victimized. Marcel is extremely talented, but he's very, very young and needs time to develop. I think he's one of those guys who's just a nerd with a lack of social skills. In 10 years (when he's as old as Cliff and Sam) he'll probably look at his behavior and be embarrassed as we all do when we see how we behaved when we were young and dumb.Originally Posted by taffina;2212973;
Sam will win, he's always been the alpha. I'm thinking him and Elia will be in the final two and Elia will choke. I don't mean to harp on age, but I do think that that aspect shouldn't be ignored. Elia and Marcel are supremely talented and Marcel's boastfulness and Elia's tendency to break down emotionally are both aspects of immaturity and insecurity which will dissipate as they age and get self-confidence. I mean, they're both only 23. They've accomplished so much as such a young age! Betty, Sam, and Cliff on the other hand should know better.
Ilan on the other hand, is just a worm.
