Here are my notes from when I watched. At first I thought Buddha was ahead, then Sarah --- but then Evelyn won the dessert round. I still love Evelyn. I know people think it's not fair that she is from Houston and cooks Mexican food - but - I can't hold where she is from/raised against her. She also cooks Asian food and correct me if I am wrong but I don't think she's Asian. So I don't think she's complacent. Padma is squarely in Buddha's corner. She defends him. Tom goes after him. Tom is obviously pulling for Sarah. I was so glad to hear the other judges praise Evelyn because that right there is her disadvantage - for all the crowing about her unfair advantage, she didn't have one of Padma or Tom pulling for her and it was super obvious. Also, Evelyn just had a great personality throughout the show. I know I'm preaching to the choir here but I feel like I am now able to articulate just what it is about Sarah that grinds some of our gears. She is just so self-aware. It feels like every moment is for the camera. Her screaming at the dessert round. Her turning a 180 degree angle every single time she won a round. Her little jokes. Always the same jokes ("Let's never let go.") Her little announcements. It all feels so practiced and it's hard to believe someone acts like this without a camera around. I have nothing against her, and she kind of grew on me in the end. Her food looked great. Her dessert especially, I was really into. I'm just really happy. What a great season and what a way to get rid of the taste of last year's. Tom was kind of nasty. He said "He's showing off" in a particularly disdainful way and Padma said "Why shouldn't he? It's the finale." Agree with the self-aware assessment of Sarah. What also grinds is the fact that she won't shut up. I did appreciate her food when she was brought back from LCK. She definitely made some things I wanted to try. But in the finale she lost me with venison tartare. Ugh. All the finale desserts looked wonderful! Yum. Buddha's tuiles were amazing. His entire meal was gorgeous and looked delicious. 5 Link to comment
