I Tivoed this show and got all black, no show, so I missed this episode and was so disappointed! I really appreciate your skillful synopsis. I knew that team would vote off their chef the first chance they got.
I watched Bobby Flay as one of the new Iron Chefs on the Food channel, and he is so high strung and snarky that it is very entertaining to watch him be a judge. Candace is just a spoiled sheep who only likes what she is used to (I am thinking in particular of the mime party where she dissed Veuve Clicquot because it was so much "harsher" than Cristal, kind of the way us regular folks would feel about Tott's!) I don't even know who the third judge is, but together they are like the guests from hell, lol
