    Ditto. I FF'd the minute I started seeing the "let's look at person X's journey"...Zzzzz. The rest was nothing but worthless time filler.

    Damaris seems like a nice lady, but I have no desire to seek out her show(s).

    Almost in...
    According to her blog she was surprised that she left. She said she was 6 months pregnant which seems to be around the time they stopped filming so I don't think it's related.

    I think we saw from the outtakes the reason that Nikki ended up getting cut when she did. She had issues with "authority" from the beginning - she's mostly self-taught, so her depth of knowledge is limited. And the killer was that she has AWFUL knife skills and even just general kitchen safety skills. I think they realized that they could not put her on TV, without risking feeling responsible for a whole lot of viewers with cooking wounds. From the outtakes, it looked as if she either cut or burned herself at least once during every single challenge.

    I agree that they went with Damaris ultimately because she fit a niche that they unexpectedly needed filling. We'll see if she can hack it as their new caucasian southerner.

    Meh. That's about as much excitement as I can muster over any of the finalists, quite frankly. I will probably watch Demaris once or twice, but I just don't see her show getting a regular spot on the Tivo.

    I think you're right, though, Aaron- I think the lack of kitchen skills really hurt Nikki.
