    Re: Eric-- I kept seeing his location as East Palo Alto. Now I went to Stanford (graduated 30 years ago) and E. Palo Alto was sort of a no-go zone. I had a lot of trouble even imagining a fancy restaurant there. Now there's the Four Seasons "Silicon Valley" (where he works). $400 a night, apparently! Things have certainly changed in 30 years!

    S04.E03: Cannes You Cook?

    I was too lazy to rewind-- but did he do anything particularly special in making the tea? Or was it "put tea bag in cup add hot water"?

    In that preview Mila seemed to be implying that she got the AJ mix because of the criticism on the earlier charter-- but it seems like that's something that must have been provisioned from the beginning--- is AJ mix even that common in Nice? I smell producer involvement. Here Mila-- this is what all Americans use to make pancakes.

    I prefer ones that have the fake wood logs. Those look much less "artificial" than those ice cubes. My dad has one and it is good looking and puts out nice heat.

    To me they all scream FAKE.

    Isn't it the case that the $3k house is only $3k because it's pretty much falling down, has been empty for years, etc. etc.? Did you notice the shell of the house next door to the one they were doing this week? It had huge holes in the siding and was clearly not being lived in. I really don't think they are "over-improving" the homes TBH. They are still very small and rather simple. What would be an example of improving them "less" so that they could sell for $100k? (I say this as the parent of a kid who would be looking at minimum $600k for a "nice" (clean and modestly updated) 600 sq ft apartment in a "desirable city neighborhood" in the northeast.

    So did that electric fireplace manufacturer have a product placement deal with this show? Isn't that the second time we've seen the same one? I thought the guys' before room looked pretty darn good! Also, I assume there were TWO closet doors into that space for a good reason. Do they have to slither down that closet now to get to the end?

    x1000. Bigoted has a specific meaning. Disliking someone because of their opinions is COMPLETELY different from disliking someone because of their skin color, religion, or sexuality. And "not wanting to see two men kissing" (if you are perfectly OK seeing a hetero couple kissing) is bigoted. Avert your eyes if you must, but don't expect a lot of support if you voice your "ick."

    Was Travis smoking in bed? !!!! Yuk. I would think that is totally not allowed. I mean they didn't show it lit, but....

    I'm really not trying to be an ass, but the three people left are Joshua, Eric, and Jeffrey. I agree with you on the layers thing. I had that same thought.

    I don't agree. (Jeffrey)'s tarts were maybe 2 inches long- and maybe 3/4 of an inch wide. Scott said "about an inch" so I think he met the challenge.

    I enjoyed it also-- most of the designs were pretty clever. I'm totally team Joshua, and wonder if the light criticism he was shown to get is just to make sure we don't think he's invincible. I really hope he wins this thing-- not only is he very talented, but he seems like *such* a nice guy.

    yeah no potential for "entertaining" in that house, right? Like even just inviting the inlaws? Or the guests who are going to be staying in one of those extra bedrooms!

    I didn't understand all their discussion of a 6 inch deep vanity (and that sink was way deeper than 6 inches). Certainly given that you had to walk past it it needed to be shallow. But that sink was more like 8 or 10 inches deep.
