Like "Iron Chef" and many other FN shows, way too much, too often. I have lost interest.

Last night was the Chopped Champions finale which was awesome.

I was really rooting for the guy from Duck Fat in Portland but his dessert did him in. I was fascinated by his gelee technique.

I'm with Bucky on this. I also wonder if the panel of judges could do a well as some of the contestants. I only watch if there is nothing else on. Or, I go and get my book.

The judges have, in fact, been contestants and impressive ones at that.
