I think they're playing up the "Marcel as outcast" to generate some sympathy or favor for him, I think he'll stay up until the end. I also think they're showing clips of Cliff's nasty side because he's going to be gone soon. I think it'll be Elia & Sam in the final. It'll be good.

I think it will be Sam wins with Elia 2nd and Ilan 3rd.
Sam has done the best overall with the quick fires and elimination.
Elia has the knowledge and the personality to succeed.
Ilan is good but he doesn't seem to have the versatility of the others.
Marcel and cliff have been in it longer than they deserved

I like Sam's attitude. I think fr the most part, he keeps his cool, and makes some decent looking food. I think he has the best shot.

As for Marcel, he reminds me of Count Chocula. And I get tired, as do the judges, of foams on everything. I appreciate his approach, but it can be a little over done sometime. IF you have a quality ingredient, let the food do the talking.

I picked a trifecta near the beginning of last season and I think got two out of three. This season seems more competitive. With only five horses left in the race, I'.ll take Sam to win and Elia and Ilan to place or show. Character counts and my hunch is that clearly Marcel, and probably Cliff, have sabotaged themselves in that regard.

So, what do you think the "hazing" is about?

Do you suppose they cut Marcel's hair, or perhaps shaved an eyebrow, or drew on a sharpie mustache?
It's probably not that serious, I'm sure, but it was a good teaser.

Count Chocula - nice one, TATT

That sounds like a good story Whatever they end up doing to Marcel, someone will get sent packing. Who will it be? I see Cliff going next.

This sounds like the voice of experience. I'd love to hear the story.

I like what the judges said on the last show: "your restraunt didnt seem like it had a personal touch but it was like a theme restraunt..'

Yeah, no kidding. YOu give them 24 hr. to come up with a theme and to design the restaurant and then stock it and create a menu and host and serve the food and you're surprised it comes out like a theme restaurant? Olive Garden should be so lucky.

REally, sometimes these judges say more about themselves than about the contestants.

My Guess for the "Marcel Hazing" is they cut off part of his wacked out hair, and after it sinks in that they acted like 12 year olds, they will shave their hair to show they acknowledge their mistake.
