This season, I get physically nervous that one of my favorites will be sent home. I’ve already lost some of the chefs that I liked. I know it is the nature of the show, but I got a little teary when Richard was eliminated during the Foo Fighters Challenge and it was sad to see Danny go because I thought he was fun. My favorites are hanging in there so far, but I can tell it is going to be an intense winter. I love Jeff because he looks like Chase from House. I am a big fan of Carla because I think she is interesting and I like her commentary. Stefan and Fabio are both adorable and European, so they need to stay. Ariane is fun to watch and I’m glad that she keeps winning after her struggling beginning. The other chefs aren’t as close to my heart, but I was relieved when no one was sent home on the last episode. Tonight is a double elimination, so I’m glad I had some time to mentally prepare. I will be pretty bummed if one or more of my picks is given the boot.
I do know that Top Chef is a reality show and I really need to get a life, but thank goodness there is something on TV that I can watch now that Project Runway has disappeared and Heros is on a break.
Also, a BIG thank you to my little brother for giving me a copy of the Top Chef Cookbook this Christmas. I’ll have Evan making us meals from it in no time.
