I Can’t Look...Is It Over Yet?
by Chef Back Burner
I think many of you would agree that this has been the Top Chef season that wouldn’t die! I really don’t know what to say to the winner...Congratulations...Rock on....It’s naptime, here’s your blankie?
Anyway, instead of going off on the last eliminated and the winner I thought I would look back to the beginning...ahh yes the beginning...when we had “Harold hopes” and “Leanne dreams”...When we watched the previews and made our first on the spot picks for winners and losers. I thought I would go back, review my initial thoughts and see how I did for snap judgments...and I also thought I would take you along with me...
“Either you’re nuts or you want people to think you’re nuts
...which means you’re nuts.”
I don’t know if she was nuts...but I think she was luckier than she thought she was. Going home this season wasn’t such a bad thing...yah think?
“Way to much grinding... makes me worry how you stir soup.”
“I’m getting a scary Tiffany vibe...
“I like you now, girl...don’t disappoint me.”
“Looks like Padma on a bad day...anyone who implies
“I’m gay and I love to cook...
“I’m foreseeing that “Hack” statement coming back to slam
“I hope you cook in that hat...it might make up for some other hairstyles...*cough*Marcel...*cough*Ilan“
“Looks like some guys I knew in college and
“Ok...but I’m not inviting him to any dinner parties at my house...
“Ok, she’s cute.”
“I don’t know you but I am ready to give you
“I can’t take him seriously...
“I think the mad scientist thing doesn’t have
So, those are my first and final thoughts on the chefs...No new Harold, Leanne or Dave, and no new tagline...Maybe it should have been “I’m not your chef, Chef.”
It’s been fun and it’s been real...but it hasn’t been real fun.
