    My wife and I caught these two episodes. We got mildly excited but I'm wondering if this show will/does turn into yet another line cook for a catering business show? It bugs me to no end how much shows like Top Chef focus on creating a meal for half of the state of california in 2 hours or the like. Does this show tend to do that or does it stick more closely to one dish for 3 judges?

    IIRC, there are some 'team' challenges now and then where the cooks have to cater to a large group of people who end up voting for the 'team' with the best tasting menu. The members of the losing team are the only ones considered for elimination, usually.

    I like the way Gordon Ramsay treats the contestants. The abusive language that he uses to state contestants make to watch Masterchef.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. Really, I couldn't because I have no idea what that is supposed to say.

    I interpreted it as, "I will be posting about iPods for sale in a few more posts"

    I liked at the school kids lunch challenge: Joe, when trying to decide which team had the better meal, says "...it could be one...or the other." Really? LOL

    I'm glad the guy (still don't know everyone's names yet) kicked butt with the cupcakes sans mixer and Luca even gave him kudos.

    Something about this season is off-putting for me. Haven't quiet put my finger on it. Maybe it's the obligatory villain (Krissi) or Joe's faux anger. But for the most part I still in.

    Never thought cupcakes would be so challenging! But I did feel Luca was right in choosing Jordan. But he did pull it off.

    It does seem like kind of a weird season, but I see a lot of talent.

    I still want Krissi gone. What a nasty woman.

    Furthermore, I'm not on board with the 'captain goes down with the ship' b.s. It wasn't a ship, no lives were at stake, and anybody with half a brain would give themselves the advantage if they had that choice. It's a contest, not the Titanic!

    Love how the guy who got his stand mixer pulled excelled in the challenge and also loved the sportsmanship of Luca in giving him kudos for a job well done.

    Agree. That was a bad analogy. It's a freaking contest. He would have been considered a dumba$$ by the judges (let alone the entire viewing audience) if he didn't use one of the saves for himself.

    Didn't someone last season not save himself? I think that is dumb. It's a competition. And the look on Krissi's face.... does she have any other look besides hate?

    I remember that as well.
    No reason to fall on your own sword- in a competition like this it is every man for himself.
    If you can stay another day then do so.

    Thought I was watching Hell's Kitchen for a second. ;)

    I was hoping to see Natasha and her eye brows go...oh well. But Kathy was in over her head. Nice try though. And man, I'm not a lobster fan, but that looked tasty as hell!

    My daughter and I watch MC together. We both just love Luca - he's so adorable. We were starting to sweat it!

    Was kinda odd episode last night - seemed like they just manufactured a reason to go to Vegas.
