    Crap! I haven't watched it yet and saw this spoiler. I wish she would have at least made it to the final two.

    This pleases me to no end. :D That woman nauseated me on a level that is difficult to even describe. There were a few better than her that didn't make it that far, so I was elated to see her freaking FINALLY get the ax. Truly, truly elated. I don't mean to sound schadenfreudey or anything, but it's lovely to see true contenders left to compete without all the ugliness.

    I'm only now in the middle of the second hour but I am already enjoying the show about a thousand times more with 'it' gone.

    Now, for the finale, IIRC, don't they usually bring back the others as teams for the final two? I would love to think that she would not be among that group so that it could be a nice, clean competition without the hideousness she brings. She just doesn't EVER play well with others.

    I think it would be better if the person who picks second goes, "eh, I don't need her, have her sit out I rather be a man down then have to babysit and deal with her drama." That would be an awesome slap in the face to her. :D

    Also no comment on picking something you have never worked with to get into the finale? What an epic boneheaded move!

    I've been rooting for Luca since day 1. He's a nice guy, and he can cook. No wonder he has a hot wife.

    I really thought that it was going to be a Luca/Jessie finale. Natasha seems like a perfectly fine cook, I just think the other two are more "likable". I am sure that some of the coarseness I disliked about Natasha on the show was to add extra drama and friction with the others, especially Krissi.

    Have the contestants actually been on site for 3 months straight? I've never really understood how normal people do these reality shows. Are they all given a stipend in addition to room and board or are these people all able to not work for months at a time? Another reality show (the Bear Grylls survival one) was 5 months!

    How was that Bear Grylls show 5 months? Did they eat beans and rice between all that, or were they eating normal?

    Yes, they get a stipend... at least on some shows (probably most if not all that take a long time).

    Umm, people can take unpaid leave, etc... and with the stipend still pay their rent or whatever.

    I'm certainly glad that Jessie didn't make it to the final two. People talk about Krissi but Jessie's true colors showed with the last episode. People talk about Krissi being a bad person, Jessie was just as ugly with her remarks. I think it's actually worse. At least Krissi was consistent throughout. While Jessie was putting on a show until she showed her true colors.

    I would SO totally do that. I'd give her napkin-folding duty. And wear gloves!

    She brings too much negativity to a team for it to function well. Almost every team she was a part of, throughout the season, lost.

    Haven't watched finale yet, but good for Luca! He seemed like a pretty good guy. I like to see nice people win.

    And +1 for having a guy finally win. I'm not a guy, but I was thinking about this the other day - the fact that only women have won so far. I hope he won on his own merits and not on their desire to mix it up and have a guy win. Will look forward to watching ep today.

    Well, what a lovely finale! They both kicked some serious a$$, from the looks of their dishes and the comments.

    From carefully watching their comments it looked like he took it fairly. It seemed like Natasha won on the appetizer course, Luca took the main dish course, and he edged past her on the dessert.

    It was heartwarming watching him receive the win. I don't always get that emotional, but he seems so sincerely grateful and talented, so it was pure pleasure to see him so happy.

    It was also nice to get back to clean competition. Sure, there was some snarking but it was healthy competitiveness. I'm very much NOT a competitive person, so I tend to go straight for not only the most talented but the nice people. Way to go, Luca! :)
