    I thought James got totally boned with the "Final Four, oops, too close to call, let's stay at Final Five" business. It seems like his "advantage" should have carried over to the next challenge set since the judges and production negated it.

    I agree that James made a series of boneheaded moves (uncooked chicken and unset panna cotta) but it just seems lame to put him in the Final Four based on his performance in a challenge and then take it back based on the performance of others in a challenge he did not get to participate in.

    I really don't care who wins as long as it's not krissi, but James leaving under these circumstances really sucks. The 3 stooges should have done their jobs and chose a loser rather than punking out or they should have had Natasha, Jessie, and Krissi (not Luca because he had the best dish and not James because he already made it to the final 4) make one of the other dishes. But I'd really prefer they had just not punked out to begin with.

    I was an early Krissi critic. She and/or editors have toned down the mouth and more recently she has been honest and humble with her feelings. Ramsay sees something there most don't yet. I hope he is right. So, she has earned her way back in as far as I'm concerned. Luca has been gradually earning his way to the top. So, I hope the final challenges are comprehensive tests of their skills and not like that zany dessert thing in a fish bowl!

    I believe there were two separate challenges of "taste this and make this...." All four have responded remarkably! Good final four!

    What show are YOU watching????

    How about all that "She used pre-made pastry" comments after she took a dump on her plate and then resented the winners!!

    I don't think anyone doubts her ability to cook, the problem is her ugly, hypocritical, attitude and inability to not mouth off at every possible opportunity.

    "Ability to cook"? Isn't the winner based on who they think can sell the most copies of a cookbook of their recipes? (That's pretty much how the first season came across.)

    Then again, where's Jennifer Behm's cookbook?

    I really want to try that Pork Noodle soup.
    If I can find a recipe I'm going for it.

    The pork soup does look good and I am surprised Krissi could pull it off since that is nor her area of food experience. I have eaten Pho hundreds of times in dozens of restaurants. I tried to make it at home once and even had a recipe - the broth was not even close. :(

    Strange...the show description at Fox.com says that (a) a cookbook deal is part of the prize, and (b) Behm is "currently working on her first cookbook" (although it's not clear if it has anything to do with winning MasterChef); however, the description on Fox's main MasterChef website leaves the cookbook deal out of the prize description.

    I watched the two hour episode on Sunday. Even my GF watched most of it and enjoyed it. She got a good laugh out of Krissi and her remarks.

    Same with me, I don't remember her at all. I remember Whitney from S1 and Christine from S3 though.

    Me too! I thought I saw all the MC seasons - but drawing a complete blank on her.

    Ok, I just googled it. I probably don't remember her because I didn't want her to win.

    But I do remember the season now.

    I was heartbroken to see Krissi get the boot, but it made the next hour of the show so much easier to watch that I got over it very quickly.

    Krissi? Krissi who?

    I was actually surprised the producers allowed her to be kicked off.. I'm sure all the drama she brought was great for ratings. I suppose they could only allow her to stay for only so long.
