Let Ilan have them all; Marcel shouldn't trust any of them!
Hate that Betty and Elia gets to come help!!!YUCK! MIght not watch just because I don't want to see those 2 witches again! And Food and Wine let the cat out of the bag who's going to win, then they say they didn't, but now I'm bummed!
Sheesh...enough with the bashing! I wish both Ilan and Marcel the best of luck tonight...despite the fact (okay, actually it's my opinion) that this season's Top Chef was told to pack his knives last week.
Have to agree with anonymous, although there's SOME small logic in having whiny Elia STAY there. No logic at all (or fairness) in having psycho-witch Betty and lazy unsanitary pig-boy Mikey COME there.How about this to dispel or prove the "marcel can't get along with anyone" theory?Give closeted queer Ilan and Marcel 2 line cooks, 1 expeditor, and 1 server from one of Chef Wong's local restaurants.My guess is Marcel would get along fine with his 4, and Ilan would be the one to have problems.Ilan, after all, was nearly kicked out of the Culinary Institute of America and WAS fired from both Craft and Cafe Gusto.
first they send the real top chef, sam, home-- now this!I'm calling BS on this show and never watching it again. http://la.eater.com/archives/2007/01/29/breaking_top_chef_finale_spoiled_again.php
I am so sick of Ilia, My god did they have bring Betty back.....Why not Josie instead
I agree with you all about sending Sam home, he won more challenges and led his teams to wins every time. What in the heck did Ilan do to win finals? I just don't get it, but I have to watch and from this morning's Today show I suspect Marcel won cause he could not quit grinning.
Uh, Sam's team failed miserably on the restaurant challenge. There was no winner on the challenge, but Sam's team clearly did worse. I'd rather see him in the finals instead of Ilan, but some people are overstating Sam's record.
Eh, I lost all respect for Sam after hearing his whiny post-show interviews. Sam keeps trash-talking Marcel. He refuses to apologize or take any responsibility for his own smarmy behavior. And Sam lied about the timeline flipping. He's still THAT GUY.
You know what would be a fun show is to have some finalists from Season 1 come help...pair Dave up with Elia and Tiffany up with Betty or Frank. I think that would make a great show.
I agree anon 10:27what the hell is going on with who they bring back? There must be a formula but i can't figure it out because if they were to bring back the the 4 chefs to leave before the final then Cliff would be there but instead you bring back FRANK (EWWWW), BETTY(stay in hollywood), MIKEY (didn't we get enough of him), and MIA(????????). I just dont get this season! Josie clearly should have been brought back but I suppose she was not involved in enough drama-what a bunch of crap! and How about Carlos? If it was based on talent alone this would be the finals line up-SAM, ELIA, JOSIE, CARLOS and CLIFF (but he screwed up) so then and only then BETTY! How's marcel supposed to win if everyone who's brought back hates him--Ilan I guess its true you won! I don't need to watch the show to see what happens its obvious!
So this is what I think. Marcel may have a pending lawsuit with Bravo for his being harassed and threatened the whole season, so as to appease him they let him win Top Chef and a course Sam as to be the sacrificial lamb as anyone can outcook Ilan who never won a challenge.
This was a mirror of last season. A more talented chef gets beat because the ousted chefs how hate them screw up the kitchen. It was clear to anyone that Frank and Sam wanted to sabotage Marcel. If Marcel had picked Mia and Mikey he would be Top Chef now!
A suggestion for next year....Give the Chefs who are helping an incentive. The Sous chefs on the winning team get $10,000.
I was rooting for the underdog. Marcel's menu was the best. With the sensationalism against him, I guess the producer's couldn't let him be the winner. Could you image the fallout from that one???
Marcel is an idiot. WHY did he listen to SAM??? Everyone knows that Sam is a passive-aggressive weasel and shit-stirring instigator.Sam convinced Marcel to pick Mikey - even though Mikey flat-out ADMITS that he wants to work with Ilan. WTF???? Marcel should have picked Mia. Dumbass!!!Then Sam&Mikey conveniently "forget" the fish.Sam, of course, makes a replacement and TAKES ALL THE CREDIT.Sam makes himself look great and Marcel look incompetent in the process.I knew Sam was up to something. He wanted to upstage Marcel.I'm watching Marcel on the Andy Show livefeed. He;s drunk off his ass and pissed off at Sam. He claims he was sabotaged by Sam.Ah, Marcel. Too little, too late. That's what you get for trusting Sam.
It's ironic how some people consider Bravo to have let Ilan win because letting the show's "villian" be victorious would start an uproar amongst the viewing population. I for one, would have loved for Marcel to be crowned the new Top Chef. But after reading countless forums such as these, and also Bravo TV's own blogs and forums, the majority of the people wanted Marcel to win and immensely despised Ilan. So in the end, Bravo only hurt themselves and their reputation. Like I said, it's pretty ironic.
