I thought it was pretty lame that three of them chose lamb. I would've done a duo of venison and foie gras. That would've been pretty cool though to cook for all of those chefs.

Out of the remaining three, I hope that Harold can pull it off and win.

I was really looking forward to the show, but couldn't make it through the first episode. Has it improved since then?

Very much so because those who didn't have talent were weeded off early. From about the Ted Allen episode on were the chefs that really had the talent and creativity.

ironchef, if they do another season (which I certainly hope they do) would you ever consider auditioning? You'd be a good candidate, imo.

As for the lamb, when I saw the three grasping at it, I knew Dave was a shoe-in. I wish Leanne could have made it rather than the ultra-uptight Tiffani.

Yeah, if I can take off from work for that long. But seriously, I think what the criteria that they probably look for is more personality first, diversity second, and talent third. That's the only reason I can think of why half of the orignal cast even made it on the show. Most reality shows probably do that to keep the drama up there and the viewers interested.

If I was on this show, I probably would've gone postal on Stephen or Dave. I'm usually very low key and patient in the kitchen--go with the flow and whatever happens, happens; adapt and move on--but between Dave freaking out and Stephen's screw ups (not making sure the spoons were washed/labels removed would've seriously pissed me off), something would've set me off. Until the wedding dinner episode, I really thought Stephen was one of the top guys but when they showed him prepping, it was obvious that he could never cut it in a busy kitchen. Up till that point they never really showed Stephen working, just his finished products which were usually better and more creative than any of the other chefs.

Chef, anyone and their sister would've gone postal on Steven. The guy's ego was so inflated it's amazing he didn't pop when he got near the ovens. Granted his plates were pretty, but looked more like artwork than food imo. (Like I want to eat food in stripes and shot glasses every time?)
You still ought to think about it. They need another calm person, since Harold will be gone next season (hopefully with a title!)

jkath, I actually went to the website and applied just for the h.ell of it. I wonder what the challenges will be next season.
Did anyone catch the catfight episode last night? Poor Tiffani But, hey, if you're going to dish it out, you're going to have to be able to take it. If you're going to sit there and be hypocritical of everything you've done, you deserve anything that comes your way.

Who lit into her, ironchef? Didn't get to see the show, dang it. Jennyema on TV and Lost had to come first.

Pretty much everyone except for Lee Anne ripped into her.

That Lee Anne is just too nice for her own good. Did Dave cry?
