With every appearance Richard Blais makes on my television screen, I hate him more and more. His false sense of humility and deprecation is such horseshit. It's clear he thinks he's amazing as he's never been shy about expressing that he "should have won" his original Top Chef season over Stephanie.
His arrogance is oppressive, even as a television viewer. His burger comments were eyeroll worthy- Yes, I'm aware that he is the proprietor of a very successful burger restaurant, but he is NOT the be-all, end-all authority on hamburgers and his snobbery about Marcel's burger was obnoxious. And the comment that a Canadian, Australian and Austrian are less qualified to judge the quality of an American burger? GTFO. You got beat, bro. Deal with it.
Notice how Marcel, who has long been perceived to be one of the villains/assholes from Top Chef never once insulted what Richard cooked, yet alleged "Aw Shucks" "good guy" Richard Blais was throwing shade left and right, criticizing everything Marcel did? He is an ass. If he wins, I'm never watching Top Chef again. The fact that I have to see his homely mug, with that ridiculous hair, and those moronic facial expressions again already makes me want to remove this series from my DVR.
Have I mentioned that I can't stand Richard Fuckin' Blais?
