Anyone watch Chopped on Food Network?

I'm loving this show and even though Top Chef has a different format and you kind of root for a person throughout the months, Chopped is kind of a Reader's Digest version of a Top Chef type of show.

I was flipping channels the other week and found this show, I love it! It is amazing what people can think up on the spot. And even more amazing that it looks and TASTES good! I love food network but was getting tired of some of the show ideas. This has renewed my love.

I'm amazed too how someone can take some random ingreidients and use them so cleverly together.

I'd like to see it with average kitchen foodies like us competing. The short time limits would be my downfall... I am not a fast cook.
Some of their contests would be fun with "average joe" cooks too!

I can't get into the 30 minute meal with random ingredients thing. It's not very realistic, but when are reality shows very realistic...

You mean Survivor isn't real?

I was really disappointed in it.

I loved "Ready, Set, Cook." That was one of their best shows.

I'm getting "Chopped" and "Ultimate Recipe Showdown" mixed up. They're ultimately the same thing. I say, Food Network, it's one or the other and I'd vote to keep URS
