Does anyone else think that this season's group of chefs is lacking in excitement? None of them really have standout personalities, and even more surprising, none of them really stand out in terms of talent. Alot of them seem to have really great and innovative ideas, but not necessarily the skills to pull off what they're trying to do. So far, I'm thinking that richard and dale have the best shot. Richard likes to push the envelope with his techniques, but Dale seems to want to push the envelope with creative flavors.

I find myself less into the show this year for sure. It is the 3rd season of basically the same formula... reality shows start to play themselves out in the 3rd season IMHO. Still an entertaining show but I cant even remember the contestants names.

The first season of reality shows is usually interesting because the contestants dont know what they are in for and either does the viewer. The 2nd season can still be sort of fresh but then it gets old... It is basically like "The Apprentice".. you only get one Omarosa.

thank god for that!

part of the success of one of the original reality shows, "survivor", was that they changed things up a bit in each of the succeeding seasons so that the contestants initial strategies didn't always work. like early alliances, or trying to fly under the radar, or being the hardest working in camp, etc., etc..

there's not much you can do to a chef but make him cook with various levels of handicap.
