    I would agree about the fire alarm thing being unfair. Who would just keep rolling if there was a fire alarm going? Who should be expected to keep rolling with a fire alarm going?? Stupid

    With the fire alarm, maybe they were looking for a better response? As I recall, she crossed her arms and just stood there. I think a better response would be to announce to the camera a fire alarm was going off, and ask the crew if everything was ok - if they said yeah, then she said - Ok, let's just roll with this and she could try to continue.

    Fire alarm was unfair. That's not like spilling the olive oil or having ingredients missing. I personally know people who have died in fires. I would be very, very angry if there was a false fire alarm. Angry, as in, beat Alton to a pulp.

    I kinda of agree with the fire alarm thing - but just standing there and looking around is not the appropriate response either. Keep talking or leave the building.

    -

    I don't think any of the contestants have a POV I want to watch, not that there is much cooking on FN. ( Sandwich King is still on though. )

    Pie guy is starting to really bug me.

    I would love to see one episode where they all get 'gussied up' and would actually look like they would on a real show.

    I absolutely hate the fact that they are having the online competition with the people who couldn't hack it. So not fair to the people who are still there and trying so hard. I know they've brought back people in the past and it really makes me totally lose interest enough to not really want to watch anymore.

    BAD idea, Food Network!!!

    Don't blame Food Network, blame Bravo/Top Chef. Food Network just ripped off the idea.

    I've never watched any of those other shows so I didn't know it was a ripoff. I truly hate it.

    7/14/13 episode -

    Well, I'm over pie guy too! They did make the right pick this week with eliminating Chad, IMO. That was going nowhere. But pie guy is just missing completely every time he presents. His pie was the only thing that saved him this time.

    AFAIK, it's all about Nikki and Stacey. They are the only two who are pleasant to watch. I also don't see any POVs that are interesting, though.

    The only one who has left, so far, I even liked at all was Viet and I'm sure he's not coming back. That said, I continue to HATE that stupid online competition to bring back one of the losers.

    ETA - Just one more thing...Is it rude to suggest that Stacey should delete the 'Poon' from her name? For some reason that kind of - I don't know. Stacey Kinney sounds very nice. :D

    Disagree. If you've watched before the one thing that is usually mandatory by now is a solid point-of-view. Russell apparently is the only contestant in the history of the show to still be working on that aspect of his cooking and not been eliminated. I've never seen anyone get that far without a clear vision. I still think Stacey is going to win.

    Pie guy is totally an idiot. Last week he sang that stupid song, and they hated it and told him he had to focus on describing the food. So this week what does he do? Stupid comedy routine. What job does he think he's auditioning for?! Songwriter stand-up comic? Or food network star? Moron.

    I think Nikki is going to win. But yeah, totally beween her and Stacey and the rest of them are just filler at this point.

    The "poon" in her name is comical to the point of absurdity. You'd think someone would clue her in to what that word means. I may facebook friend her just to give her the link to that word on the Urban Dictionary.

    Imagine watching a show featuring Bobby SkinFlute-Flay. Kind of crushes the credibility.

    How could she not know what the name means? Nobody is that sheltered when they're in the restaurant business. At least her specialty isn't pies...

    Nobody finds it comical that Food Network spent weeks doing an online show, that I doubt hardly anyone watched, just to bring back a shlub who was instantly sent home once again? They pretty much wasted a week on the real show for this nonsense. I was hoping they'd bring back Chad, no such luck. I never expected Nikki to still be around when we first started this season, but she is quickly becoming a favorite to win it. I still feel like it is her or Stacey - the rest are just not good enough. Damaris is impressing and hanging around but IMO she is too racy for the food network.

    It was quiet ironic ... she really had no business coming back.

    I do agree that the final race is between Stacey and Nikki, and I bet on Nikki winning it, she seems most comfortable in front of the camera. I do like Damaris, but she's awkward at times, though probably more fun and unique than the other two.

    The way Nikki talked right over the donut guy made me wince.

    I don't know. I just don't see a star there. In any of them. If you took two or three of them and melded them into one person it would be cool. They just seem all too....uncomfortable? I don't know what word I am looking for, but I don't see an Alton Brown or Rachel Ray there.

    That was Stacey not Nikki. Agreed - some are better than others, but none of this year's contestants are star worthy.

    What I am finding more interesting is how these people are so friendly to each other in real life. On FaceBook a lot of them post and comment on each others pages. I often see Russel and Rodney commenting on Chad's posts and also Stacey. Something about this makes me like all of them a lot more.

    Stacey's FB status:
    and a reply from Rodney:
