Keturah was becoming my favorite contestant, so of course she's gone. I thought she brought a touch of class and elegance to the show. I loved her lilting speaking voice and accent, and she also had nice personality. When Dorian went back to her station after the judging, crying, Keturah said to her "those are the tears we like, tears of joy." It was a sweet thing to say, especially since she was worried about her own dish and knew she was likely going home.
Keturah was the only one who sliced the meat and tried to use it as a component in a dish, instead of just throwing the steak on the grill. Big mistake. I attribute it to her be the only contestant who's not an American. She just didn't understand the whole American mystique around steaks and grills. She might've thought that just grilling the entire steak was taking the easy way out. I mean, how hard is that? (Seems like a pretty simple challenge for the amazing, incredible Season 10).
I'm calling BS on the dessert thing. I believe that when GR announced they had to make a dessert the clock showed 25 minutes. And by 15 minutes they were all done. And they were fairly sophisticated, composed deserts, not just grilled fruit, using ingredients like phylo dough and rum. (Where did the liquor suddenly come from?) We saw a couple of people slicing fruit, but never saw anyone actually working on their dessert. They just magically appeared. And how could they focus on fairly labor intensive desserts while still keeping an eye on the grill? I'm sure they made the deserts before or after the grilling challenge.. It was all a contrived piece of nonsense to try to show that the amazing Season 10 contestants can do anything.
