Not sure how I feel about this “X” system. And I will continue to shout it from the rooftops—have the show travel around the country! There are so many cultural traditions in Canada that deserve to be highlighted.

I am OK with the X idea.  Often chefs land in the bottom 3 several times but keep getting saved by always having at least one chef cooking worse that week.  This way they will have to redeem themselves.

I agree that I wish they would move around Canada.  This is Top Chef Canada not Top Chef Toronto.  Mark probably wants them to stay in Toronto so they have to use his grocery stores every time.

Vish seems to be strong from the start.

Maybe if they move there will be more than one chef from the eastern Canada or one chef from the prairies. There is more to Canada than Ontario, Quebec and BC.

I would love to see the food scene in different provinces.

I wish we didn't lose the one and only chef from the east coast so early.  But she was the right choice to leave.  She just did not have enough experience.  

They sure are throwing out those Xs.  It is tough when they receive an X when they are on a losing team in the quick challenge.  Will they give the entire losing team in restaurant wars an X?

The duck must have really been bad.  I would rather eat average duck than find hair in my food.  I was surprised with the decision.  The judges liked everything but the duck on the one team.  But they had several dishes that were not that great on the other team.  They really wanted Joachim gone.  I felt bad for Tre.  It was his team but the others took over and the duck was a bad idea.

Finally caught up. Oof, rawish meat gel. But I've never heard of that cut either. 

Is it my TV or has Eden picked a rather unflattering shade for her hair this season? ...Um, if that is just her natural hair, my apologies. : D

I had never heard of that cut, either. Apparently, it’s the same as kalbi, which I kept saying to my tv “that looks like kalbi beef, I wonder if they’re similar”.

The X's thing was a big fail for me. All that giving out of X's this whole time and it only amounted to ONE cook off. And so many people had three X's at the end of the quick fire, they had to subjectively pick the 2nd person who would be in the cook off. They should have made them all be in it. Then they gave the winner of the cook off $3K. Why are they rewarding the people in the cook off?! That seems unfair to those who did not do as poorly. Hope they don't do that again.

OMG. 
The dishes from Mondays episode looked incredible. Camillo’s steak, I just want to crawl into my tv screen and eat it. Ditto for Diserris fish.

Random thoughts. I could not eat 5 dishes in one sitting. Do these people starve themselves for a week before tasting?

and I think first person to be judged has an advantage over last because first is on an empty tummy, last is on an almost full.

I still can't stand Mijune. She gave Vish the vaguest request and then complained that it wasn't enough.

I think it's Camilo's to win now.

Yes.  They acted like “create a showstopper…chef’s choice” was a good thing, but it was really a trap.   The others had a focus when they designed their dishes.

It was a trap, but he also picked on the wrong important element for the dish. He saw the "Chefs Choice" and saw the blank slate.

The important part of the dish was the "Create a showstopper, something entertaining", and that was what the dish should have been. And a cloud of smoke doesn't come anywhere close to a showstopper. Usually these are deserts, like Baked Alaska, but I'm sure he could've come up with something flamboyant if he'd focused the right way. 

Tre was going to be in the Top 4 regardless, there was no way they weren't sending him to the Caribbean. Luckily Vish flubbed his dish so bad that it wasn't really a hard choice.

Top Chef was promoting judge David Zilber weeks before the show started the after 3 episodes poof he’s gone with Eden saying he’s not returning,   Anyone know what happened?

They said the new judge, David Zilber, was leaving the show because his partner was due to have a baby any day. I thought it was strange that they had him and his partner select their favourite dish, but they didn't show them eating any of the dishes, nor critiquing them. Why bother including them at all?

Yeah they should have chosen a different judge for this; David is in Copehagen so there was no chance he was going to be able to try the dishes for him.

So happy for Tre. All his dishes sounded amazing (except the chicken breast), and I wish I was independently wealthy, so I could fund his restaurant. I appreciate the respect that the contestants had for each other. 
If only this show would travel to other parts of the country.

He's so talented and seemed like such a focused, nice guy!!!!

I thought Tre was gonna have some kind of perfect meal the way that started out, but it ended up being pretty close. 

It was pretty brutal eliminating one after the quick fire. He must be gutted not to cook the meal he had planned.

How did the restaurant with hair in the food win? Either that duck was really bad, or they really wanted Joachim gone. 

Hello, I'm watching from the US and couldn't watch live so am just getting to this season now.

I'm completely confused that Hair Restaurant won over the other restaurant. The only thing I can think of is that the Hair Restaurant had more dishes to judge so that helped average out their experience vs Tre's restaurant which had one bad dish out of 4.

I really like Tre's energy. He comes across as the baby brother of the group. I liked Martine as well and am sad she's gone (I just finished that episode) but the meat situation seemed really bad. 

My other favorites are Tanya, Vish, Monica, and Desiree.

Top Chef Canada X

From reading above posts, it sounds like the same chefs are here again.

They sent the right person home.  That plate didn't look like anything resembling an etoufee, and mushy shrimp does not sound good at all.

Seemed odd seeing Dale there as a guest judge after watching him on Top Chef 20.

eta: I guess what they are showing now is just last year's competition, not new at all.
