thanks, skillet. Oh yeah, I remember her now. Great smile. I liked her too. Apparently she's let her hair grow out a bit.

I think she (LeAnn) was at the Union Square challenge last night between Ilan and Sam.

Am I right? So lucky you got to go!

No, we were both guests at the AIWF Champagne Gala on Tuesday night.

This leads to a 3 part video of a taste test between Hung and Clay. The Battle is On: Hung vs. Clay, pt.1 - Videos - Bravo TV

Pretty amusing. Unfortunately for Clay, in regards to cooking talent, that score would have been much, much wider. It's underrated as to how hard blind taste testing is. A big part of cooking and eating is that visual aspect. You lose it and the brain will get confused.

Tony Bourdain made a derrière of himself, nothing new there, and Padma provided the gratuitous T&A, nothing new there either.

The guy with the snake didn't know how to cook snake and the guy with the alligator didn't know how to cook alligator (he should have been watching Paula Deen!), no surprise there, and the dude that actually knew what he was doing, won. Now THAT was a total surprise! I also noticed there was no Stephen/Marcel clone for season 3. What's up with that?

Yes, the visual is very important; not sure how many people here have tried blind taste testing. Not as easy as some people can make it look at all.

I guess maybe Bravo felt they needed to give Clay more media exposure since his 15 minutes of fame didn't last very long. Or maybe they were trying to prove that if two people are blindfolded, the competition between the best and worst is much closer.

...or that after the aired remarks about his father, the sympathy factor would result in some hue and cry to bring him back?

I haven't had a chance to watch this video, but I'm afraid that at the end Clay is going to look an even bigger fool than he did on episode 1. Hung is not only talented, he's also a horse's a$$, as he admitted on camera.
