    Best Baker In America

    Food Network broadcast the win at the beginning of the episode, in a sense. Both Joshua and Jeffrey were bragging about how many contests they'd won and how good they were, and Eric was much more humble. It was clear that one or both of the two "favorites" was not going to make it. Congratulations to Eric, but sorry to say, I'm glad to have Jason off my TV now.

    Some faux pas: Aaron: "gluten starches". Glutens are proteins. Joe to Wuta: "You're finally showing us you on a plate." Wuta cooked chicken but he's a vegetarian. How is that him on a plate? One word about the skinless fried chicken. I've had that. There was a take-out fried chicken joint where I used to live in Brooklyn that would make it that way if you requested it. It's less cholesterol if you don't eat the skin, but kind of a moot point once it's fried.

    Chopped 2019: Put Down the Chopsticks

    Poor Roe, always a bridesmaid, never a bride. For those of you unaware, one of the chefs on this past week's competition, Roe Dileo, was a 2-time competitor on Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen. She came close to getting into the final both times, and botched it both times.

    BTW, I saw Jason on an episode of Best Thing I Ever Ate on the Cooking Channel the other night, and he was riffing through his greatest hits of "Happy As A" similes. Clearly he's in on the joke. Doesn't make it any more palatable, however.

    It's as meaningful as his "Happy as a rooster wearing boots" or whatever other barnyard animal he's commandeered for his own purposes. What I'd like to know is, how does HE know it's happy doing that? This challenge was pretty laughable considering they only had 2 hours to make those cakes. The approach of extracting some details of the character makes sense in that time frame, but then to get dinged for that is the absolute hypocrisy of these shows.

    I fast forwarded through all of it until the tasting of the 3 courses. The amount of praise the judges were throwing left and right was nauseating. I was waiting for one of them to orgasm. Really? Over a piece of hangar steak? Anyway, when Gordon said the competition was going on for months, I had to laugh. Felt like years to me.

    Marcela was a pastry chef. Note this, from here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcela_Valladolid "Valladolid graduated from the Los Angeles Culinary Institute as a "Certified cook" and then moved to Paris, France, where she graduated as a classically trained pastry chef at the Ritz-Escoffier Cooking School." So yes, I think she's quite qualified to judge this competition, no doubt, moreso than Captain Cornpone (sheesh, here we go again...)

    Wow, the team with 3 people left sent someone home over the team with 2 people left. Color me surprised. Yawn.

    Number 5 just arrived. A boy they named Oscar.

    Or simply notoriety for their restaurants. That's a benefit that's measured in more butts in the seats, which is ultimately a better prize than the 10 grand.

    "The rice is scented with just the right amount of jasmine." Um, Aaron? You do know it's jasmine rice, right?

    I'm clearly older than a lot of you guys because I remember a bunch of these D-listers from the 70s and 80s. If you watch Orange is the New Black, you'll know Taryn Manning. Frankly, she struck me as the only one who was even remotely natural, the rest were throwing shtick left and right. We should have a contest to predict how long it takes for Tonya Harding to cry. She almost did already, and it was only the first episode.

    I'm still watching this, and I hope it's renewed without the inane commentary.
