Well....I hardly think that Jeremy has done anything to even be associated with Paul Qui. While I may dislike certain contestants - Blais, the fugly jerk with the fat tattooed arms, ugly pink hair and fugly wife who looks like a fat Peewee Herman (Karen) - I don't think any of them come near to Paul Qui's actions - which yeah "innocent til proven blah blah" but it sure does not sound good
(yes, I plan to talk about people on tv like others do LOL>> hence my take on Karen who annoyed me from day one LOL)
As for the ex drug dealer - wow I guess I missed that about Kwame - hope he keeps on the straight and narrow
Paul was likable on the show but we don't know what any of them are like in real life. Still disliking a cast member on a reality show vs the feelings that come when you see a crazy, drugged up drunk abuser - far different. I really hope Paul's wife and kid are ok and get away from him.
I don't think abusers change
~~~~~~~ Oh ..about this idea and whining that the "producers" set up Amar with his "mentor"...I don't think so. I am sure they had this plot/idea in place...see the difference is that most of the other chefs would have a happy, supportive mentor in their corner. I am sure Issac would have had Emeril for instance.
They had this in place far before the last minute come back of Amar - did you consider that maybe he has acted like a dick and no one wanted to come and be a positive mentor? Maybe one guy was "So one man is embraced by a warm, proud father-figure and the other guy gets to deal with a public confrontation following x years of silence and bitter resentment?".....ummm...no maybe one guy didn't have anyone from his past jobs who liked him or supported him. Maybe Amar has burnt bridges - with his ex bosses, girlfriend, co workers
How was this a set up or a handicap?
