  1. This season is shaping up to be much better than Alaska, although that was a really low bar to reach. i am curious as to why they didn’t provide totals for NOLA and the Waffle dudes. That whole accident fee seemed very sketchy. Even if the damages was limited to a side mirror, it is still several hundred dollars to replace. They made it sound like it was more damage, and I find the whole thing suspicious, I also find the huge differences in money amazing. . If their numbers are legit, the winner made almost 3x what the loser made.
  2. While Ava might have been a bottom tier contestant, Matthew was horrendous and should have went first. Between poop sack shrimp (which seemed a revelation to him), to raw chicken, he was obviously out of his element.
  3. Not knowing a single item is not the same as not being aware of the various foods and styles of an entire continent.
  4. They have highlighted African food over the years without reverting to using it as cudgel. Taking the cast to various African style eateries was treated as if the chefs were all oblivious to Africa style cooking, treating them and the viewing audience like idiots. Are you OK with them treating these contestants, allegedly some of the best chefs in the country, as being completely ignorant of the food of an entire continent? Also, what was the chance one the chefs would actually say he or she didn’t like the food at one of those places? Chefs have said that in past seasons at some fam
  5. A few late observations: Dial back the SJW stuff. A little is fine. This is a cooking show, not a rectifying history show. As Tom always says, it comes down to the food. I have never walked into a restaurant and demanded to know the chef’s POV, or life experiences. What is it with the lightning fast blurbs they put on screen, with the chef’s name and some info, then remove them after 1 second? Also, has anyone else noticed the color schemes they use with the chef’s names often blend into the background colors, making them unreadable?
  6. A few observations: Chef Susan raves about Declans plate, stuffing her piehole like she is going to the chair, and acts like it is the best thing she has ever seen. She then gives him the worst rating of the 3 chefs. What was the point of that? Also, is she as short as she appears, or were the others on a platform? For those who claim Mary Lou won’t get the nod because of her hairdo, look no further than blue haired sous chef. Even though he is not a HK winner, he seems to have done alright by Gordon. I can see Declan coming back as one of the Sous Chefs in upcomin
  7. Surprised nobody mentioned Blais has removed the idiotic wave hairstyle from Ep 1, and had a normal hairdo this week.
  8. What a terrible finale, to a terrible season. The only reason they didn’t announce the sales numbers is because they most likely didn’t crack $100. Giving a team a $400 advantage in these circumstances was criminal, even if they did somewhat rectify it by giving the other team $300 near the end. There was zero chance the annoying Ballers were going to get the prize from the second challenge, so there was no suspense at all when he announced the second challenge. As another poster mentioned, the Balls most likely were handed the win in lieu of a lawsuit over the frostbite injury. Th
  9. A few observations: Showing the 3 screens after naming Declan as the first finalist ruined the surprise of another elimination. It was obvious there would be 3 finalists. GR, who always tells everyone about his extremely high standards, needs to address Declans grotesque sweating over everything. There is no reason he can’t wear a headband or bandana on that massive noggin of his. When guests are commenting on it, it has gone too far. In the first few episodes, I thought Mary Lou was this seasons resident clown character, there for comic relief. Over the cou
  10. This season is the low point of the series. The trucks are not only used, but severely used. Between mechanical issues, crud and grease buildup, and stuck and broken windows, there must be a used car salesman at “Honest Johns Food Truck Lot” laughing hysterically, while counting his cash, at the scam he pulled on the producers of this show. Wonder if he threw in the faulty generators as part of the deal. The parking locations often seem desolate, and I am amazed at the cash totals they claim the trucks have generated. Does anyone know if the contestants pay their way
  11. That challenge was awful. The people getting punished were not the ones making the mistakes, especially Declan, who got a perfect score. Also, some of the poor slobs in the dunking chair got to wear shower caps, while others didn’t. The whole thing was a joke. Glad to see that awful scraggly beard finally removed from the kitchen.
  12. That band was awful. Are they really popular in Las Vegas, as GR claimed? If so, my opinion of musical tastes of the people there just took a nose dive. Every single thing they screeched sounded exactly the same. I was surprised the winners got to go to a chain restaurant for the reward. But I guess when said chain restaurant pays the bills, that’t where you end up. The food didn’t look that appetizing, to tell the truth, and this is coming from someone who loves Italian. Penn and Teller kind of grossed me out with their magic trick. Is that really what you need to see when you
  13. We were told about this show by a family member. We binge watched Season 1. It was interesting, and certainly different than food competitions we usually watch. But the fact that Deborah won was baffling. Week after week she had awful pieces, often with no real connection to the challenge. The week Patrick, and then Alex left, we were dumb founded that she remained. Janusz made her look like a kid in Jr HS shop class. The final decision was mind boggling. There was no contest. Janusz won, no matter what the judges decided. I doubt we’ll watch another season. This was a huge letdown.
  14. Probably because your observation is right. Some people are just slobs. That beard guy needs to put a hairnet on that monstrosity. It really lowers the GR brand to know he is allowing someone that ignorant of basic sanitary hygiene to work in his kitchen. The fat slob with the plumbers crack should have been tossed from the kitchen for the same reason. When Gordon picked the correct two for elimination, it was obvious Jordan, otherwise known as Robin Version 2.0, was staying. No way a stock HK character gets booted this early in the season. Overall,
  15. I have no clue as to who or what Lisa Vanderpump did to become a celeb. But watching her in this episode, especially with her dog in a restaurant kitchen, tells me she is a giant POS. The other celeb was at least a decent person, and one of the rare HK celebs that I actually have heard of, as opposed to the usual D List celebs. As others have mentioned, that box of shrimp stunt was idiotic, and wasteful if it was real shrimp. Did absolutely nothing to further the show. The right people went home today, although the first elim was pretty easy to call based on the girls
