I mean, the restaurant reminiscent of a plantation was one thing, but he came back certain he was going to win. His talking heads were, "These are the last three chefs I have to face before I win" whereas Stephanie said things like, "I am just honored to be here with such talent." You do realize that all those talking heads are producer driven, right? Granted, they can't show you saying something you didn't say -- clearly he said the plantation stuff -- but they can definitely coax the answers and tone they're looking for. I don't think Kevin was any more competitive than any of the others, but particularly with LCK, the cheftestants are being guided to show a winning spirit, no matter how it might sit with us. And if he hadn't said that thing about the plantation, we might have been more accomodating. Regarding soul in cooking, it reminds me very much of music. I once listened to a child violin prodigy who played utterly, technically perfect, but it lacked...something. A spark, perhaps. Some vital essence of passion and love that once it was missing, was very apparent. I don't necessarily believe that Bryan doesn't have passion or love for cooking, obviously he does. I do think the competition gets in certain people's heads more than others, and can mess with the outcome of a dish. 4 Link to comment
