  1. When they were killing time / padding it out showing bits from earlier in the season, they included the results of the first week's competition, where the top three were Suu, Autumn and Kelsey. Thanks for showing up to catch cannonballs, other seven. Stunning legendary show can't afford to pay help to plug in the ovens.
  2. We were thinking the same thing. Didn't they call her "The Queen of Italian cuisine" or something close to that? I don't know how retired Lidia might be, though.
  3. Perhaps I was forming my refined Top Chef level palate back in the 1970s when I first had one of those and thought "That cheese doesn't belong there. Yuck!" But I never picked up the taste for runny eggs or undercooked meat, so maybe not. When Dawn was recruiting Jamie to help her plate we were both asking why didn't she ask one of the guys who had already presented.

    The Bite

    Can someone tell me who is playing Lily's book agent Veruca? Not listed with the cast on IMDB and it's driving me nuts. We are thoroughly enjoying this series and want the Kings to take over Troma Studios ASAP,
  5. Of course. It costs a lot to make a hat that looks like it was just pulled out of the trash.
  6. And she was smart enough to just call it risotto and not try to make up a name/twist. Tom at Kiki's prep table is in the dictionary under "Sniff 'n' Sneer".
  7. Having seen three so far I tend to agree. I'm glad I didn't spring for Pay TV to see them, though, which I was near to doing at a couple of points.
  8. Mammoth always looks to me like it's having a slappy fight.
  9. I'm for Ben Bailey of "Cash Cab", myself.
  10. My DVR picked up an episode on non-pay cable I hadn't seen a few days ago, had different opening credits. Would this have been from the Bravo run? Are those on a package like Discovery+? I'm proposing Ben Bailey for new Jeopardy host.
  11. We were rooting heavy for Gruff after the guy from Hypershock came off as such a whiny little bitch in the backstage chatter after Beta won the judging against Rotator earlier.
  12. What a pleasant surprise when this showed up last night! I forget the bot name, but I loved the guy who said they'd added fire to their arsenal, and then his bot burst into flame after an early hit. Hah!
  13. Am I not remembering right, or wasn't setting up a pre-game alliance among three players a bigger part of this game the first time around? If your squad made it through the first round (likely, since your three votes would go for your first chosen victim and you'd be unlikely to have four of the other five peel off one of yours) you pretty much had the top three locked up after it and didn't have to fight until you were down to three, regardless of who answered how many questions right. I remember lots of chatter over alliances and lots of skilled players knocked out by them, with Anne accus
  14. This plus if that was supposed to be her audition tape she has a pretty nice kitchen at home.
  15. Alex did one of their competitions where they had to mentor contestants who were really trying to cook (unlike these) - I forget the name but the mentors prowled around on a catwalk and got to go down for 1 minute or something once per round when a button was pushed. Anyway, ahe seemed comfortable in the teaching/mentoring role. I'm just waiting around until Scott Conant pulls the short straw and is forced to do this. He'll be even less gracious about it than Alton Brown was.
  16. I had to go back and rerun that myself. She was anonymously returning the rock she and Steve swiped from the Petrified Forest with a note saying something like "I knew somebody who stole a rock from your park".
  17. I'm sad now that I've learned I've been chopping my vegetables heartlessly.
  18. I hope these various singers are paying Sam to be on the show, because I have yet to enjoy one of their performances and find the whole exercise a waste of time. More snark, less singing.
  19. I didn't like the pitch concept at all, it reminds me of something they would do on Food Network Star. Kevin's team has pole position in Restaurant Wars. Whoever is on his team can come up with a Southern dish that's in their, ahem, comfort zone. Gregory is going to have to teach his team to cook Haitian.
  20. All I could think of while viewing Rinat's hideous outfit was my Mom telling me in grade school not to wear blue and green at the same time, because they don't go together.
  21. I mostly remember his ridiculous high-water pants. I remember asking on TWOP when that became a thing. I actually liked the concept of that show although its execution was spotty. I think Tom has said there would be no point to blind tastings on Top Chef because they'd know who did what anyway, but I'm not buying it.
  22. Maybe someone can explain Malarkey's "grilled raw roasted" carrot to me, because I'm having trouble picturing the technique.
  23. Maybe she was just a hired gun for a couple of days. I haven't followed her professional career, but if she was in between things and Marcus needed a trusted hand she might have stepped in. There would be no reason to mention that. My ears are shot but I thought I heard Malarkey mention "clam pie" in his vision of what Joe should cook? I thought of white pizza from the Northeast which is sometimes deliciously soggy with oils and butter.
  24. Cheese it, it's the Kheops! Did anyone else think that after they decided he would win the producers sent an intern around to swipe Geoffrey's face jewels to help him out? It must be tough to find space around NYFW, since PR had to hold their show in a high school gym.
