What is that on one of the judges' arm? At first I thought it was ritual scarification, then I thought it was an erased tattoo...but I really cannot tell. Does anyone know?

on Padma's arm? I saw it a couple of times - I was thinking it was a pretty bad scar.

Looks like a lasar tattoo removal to me.

It's a scar. She was in an automobile accident.

Did anybody watch the show this week? When Marcel won the quick-fire challenge he said something like, blah blah and besides I thought my watermelon dish was completely swan-yeah. No idea how this is spelled but thats how he pronounced it.

What the Sam Hill is swan-yeah?

soigne is how it's spelled. It means showing sophisticated elegance. When I was producing parties in NYC I would hire a performer from time to time. His name was Soigne D'Lux.

As soon as I heard Marcel say the name, it reminded me of Soigne and made me smile.

So what do you guys think of the action so far? I'm very happy to see Elia doing so well. She wasn't my pick in the beginning, but is quickly becoming my favorite. Especially loved the Holiday cocktail party episode. Coming from a background in high-volume catering, I loved the menu the "higher end" team came up with, but knew the execution would fail.

Is anyone still watching it?

Know what you mean buckytom.

At the end of the cooking on the beach episode I snapped wide awake when she started taking off her chef coat to go into the water.
