  1. That’s how Hell’s Kitchen does it for the finale, too. It’s painful to watch.
  2. Absolutely agree. Also, why show the rankings when the person who was at or near the bottom of both challenges stays over people who did well in the first round? It’s so confusing.
  3. Maybe I missed it but why did Charlotte get three carpenters/decorators and Jon one while everyone else had two?
  4. Siobhan’s voiceover said she was using hakeme, which is really beautiful when done properly. Simple but elegant. Shenyu’s design was just messy. And she didn’t follow her own advice of not going over a stroke twice. I don’t understand why she refused to put her things in the drying room. Keith’s face when she claimed two minutes of a heat gun does the same was priceless. If not for Peter’s help, I wonder if she would have even had pots to glaze. Poor Adam. Keith does not like his aesthetic. His mushroom house was stunning a few weeks ago, and his tiles this week were the be
  5. Very excited about this new season. Interesting they added Alan Carr’s name to it. Maybe more people will watch this series. Love Micaela, former doctor Peter, and Jon with no confidence who gets his inspiration from drag. The sooner Charlotte is gone, the better. “You need the designer to build the entirety of your plan for the room? No. I need him more to screw something basic in and remove plastic as I lie on the mattress recovering from all the energy I expended being so passive aggressive. I couldn’t possibly do physical labor myself.”
  6. Anyone else watch the covid special? Elaine was still trying to control how DeSean gets to feel. It was heartbreaking seeing how she thought he should just comply and to see how much emotion DeSean has been repressing. His Hulk metaphor was so apt. He lives his life pleasing everyone to be safe in a world where people’s implicit biases and attitudes make him unsafe. I am glad Sam and Lauren are still together and even gladder they decided against a baby as a bandaid on the relationship. Seeing them in their backyard of their new house felt like a happily ever after. The new co
  7. I don’t know how many episodes you’ve watched yet. After watching the first six, my explanation is Overall, it is amazing to see some of the incredible things the contestants come up with, and I enjoy the clips with advice from the judges. I would never reflex a tulip though. I much prefer how they look closed. If you want an open flower, use a flower that is meant to open, but I guess that’s just me.
  8. Her hallway is the same vomit green as the paint she chose on the show. Ha. Looking at her color choices, it does seem like she might be a little color-blind. I truly do not comprehend anyone feeling “at home” in those garish rooms.
  9. When Laura said she was added to acidic juices to her gelatin, I yelled at the television that it wouldn’t set. How do people at this level not know too low pH denatures gelatin? Add to that how strange is was that Paul blamed her using “too many flavours” when it was the acid of the flavors that caused the issue. I thought Dave should have won. Peter makes a good winner too since he excelled throughout the competition. All my favorites were eliminated week after week. I still miss Sandy.
  10. Anyone else watching the new series? Usually I’m yelling at the judges about their terrible choices (although not as much as during Landscape). This week, however, I completely agreed with the winner. The social distancing was subtle, like the judges keeping back from the artists and no handshakes or cheek kisses from the celebrity sitters. And I really didn’t mind the lack of spectators at all.
  11. I’m not embarrassed to admit I Was sobbing during Kwame’s hug and again as the credits rolled. Michelle Greenidge as her mother nailed that scene. I thought Fleabag was amazing, but this show was on another level. Wow.
  12. Methylcellulose is a laxative. They use a laxative to make their meringue?! Remind me not to eat at their restaurant!

    S17.E13: Parma

    The fabric was almost identical to my eighty-year old auntie’s favorite shirt! She wears it to every family gathering. 😂
  14. Helena had her first (hilarious) acting job on What We Do in the Shadows.
  15. Always fun to see shows I like intersect. Lilith as Nadja was played by Helena, the goth baker from GBBO.
  16. I am hoping ghost nadja in a doll ends up with ghost gregor in a doll. Very Chuckie in Child’s Play vibes.
  17. Crickets scream the future. Rabbit I can understand. But veal brains? I guess as long as there’s a dairy industry, there will be veal. Might as well eat their brains. When will cheftestants learn preparing something two or three ways is asking for trouble?
  18. Yup. There’s no way Hasidic-inspired could be high fashion. /s 1990s Gaultier would like to have a word with you.
  19. Right? I feel like if this came out a few months ago I would have watched the first episode and been meh about it. But the show has sucked me in now.
  20. I agree. The humor is not humorous. Last week with the keyboard cat meme circa 2007 was a low point. I’m tired of the constant forced puns. It does feel like previous seasons were just more fun.
  21. I’m glad I’m not into gambling because I was wrong on my guess for the final three. Rosa likes making the same fish, doesn’t she. They were off-putting to say the least in this context and made it look like the toilet needed to be cleaned. 💩
  22. I thought it was funny how the judge said making an elevator that works out is hard. What terrible advertising for lego! ”You need to be a lego master to get the moving parts to work!” 🤣
