Though I like Betty, I thought she clearly broke the rules. I simply don't believe her story that she thought adding the sugar would be ok. The nutritionists signed off on the ingredients and portion size of what was made on the first day. Why she was presumptuous enough to think she could vary from that, I have no idea.

The olive oil thing was very odd. Why were the bottles out in the first place? They obviously have producers or whatever watching them cook -- you can see them in background shots.

I am so hoping someone shaves Marcel's head in his sleep.

jkath, well yeah! duh! I didnt think of looking on the site for show clips. I will do that. Thanks for the tip :)

Yeah, I know I should have a food/cooking avatar but I ended up putting that little pic of my daughter (who is 2 now) but she just loves to "help" me cook in the kitchen!

LOL, jenny!
I missed the episode (I hope it was just one) with the olive oil and the kids and Betty and the sugar. Will catch up with reruns this weekend.

He's okay, he's just on the wrong show. He was supposed to be on Top Avante Guarde Molecular Gastronomist. It never aired because Marcel was the only one who could use the phrase with a straight face.

At least he could wear a hairnet. We could put it on our "guess what this is a picture of"

I'm pretty well caught up with "Top Chef" - I haven't seen the entire 1st episode. And I'm not looking forward to this week's episode, given what the ingredients are this week.

That said, there are more of them that I would like to see gone than I would like to see stay. I would like Betty to stay because I most identify with her (but I do think she broke the rules & should have paid for it). Elia & Josie can stay, too. As for the men - Cliff, Carlos, Ilan & Frank can stay.

I suspect that they'll keep some of the more controversial characters around, just for that reason - because they're controversial.
