    Sigh...I guess they are keeping Krissi because she is "good TV..." - after she mouthed off to Joe, I was hoping they would send her packing! :eek::mad:

    As if there weren't enough reasons to hate Krissi...

    That twitter account is gone.

    [er...maybe not. Twitter seems to be having some sort of issue.]

    Joe is another I wouldn't mind seen packing. He's been especially hateful this season. Never even heard of him 'til Master Chef.

    O-MG re: that Twitter stuff!!

    She disgusts me more every time I have to look at her nasty, hateful face.

    Anyway, as to this week's episode/s -

    You know some of these rules are getting really stupid. First of all, as to pulling one off each team, after they've chosen teams, to sit around for the whole thing seems stupid to me. Let everybody compete. Granted, the red team probably would have lost with that nasty woman on it because she seems to bring bad karma to everything she touches. But they are there to compete.

    Secondly, when the losing team was going to have to do their challenge, I can see picking ONE team member IF there was one who truly excelled above the others and give them immunity. But to pull everybody off the team but two seemed kind of weird. It seems like they are getting lazy.

    While I've been railing a little this season about Joe being such a dick, I do have to say that I enjoyed him ripping that awful Krissi a new one. :D

    Nice seeing Christine again and I like they they had her judging with them.

    And just one more general boo hiss boo for the fact that I have to look at that disgusting puke of a woman, Krissi, for at least one more week. In the first hour I would have bet that, even as hideously awful as her dish was, there would be somebody worse. The way they dramatize everything is getting pretty predictable. Then to have her get to sit out the challenge in the second hour - yick!!

    It all makes more sense one you realize that this is a game show, not a cooking contest.

    Come on, admit it. There has to be someone you love to hate, or it wouldn't be as much fun.

    Yebbut I'm not often in the mood to watch classless people trash talk.
    Let me decide who to love and who to hate without being so transparent about who the "villain" is 'supposed' to be.

    I swear, most of television's edit monkeys need to take a step back.
    The trend is old already.

    The second half of the episode, which didn't really have much Krissy in it, was still enjoyable.

    I preferred having the three judges excuse people from the elimination competition rather than the team leader.

    Other than Lynn being a sweaty, sweaty man with poor food safety skills (seriously, wipe your sweaty head and then use the same towel to wipe a plate and dripping sweat right onto the plates?!?) was plating really the hold up on the blue team? They didn't really show any of the other stations falling behind (IIRC) but they also did not show anyone other than James perhaps trying to help get the plates finished up.

    Like others have said above, I like the home cook angle and not sure I am down with the Hells Kitchen or large event catering platforms. Of course it will look like a CF, they've never worked in a kitchen brigade before.

    I'm with Toni on this.

    Furthermore, and perhaps I'm in the minority, I think that the contest is really important to some of these people. It's a chance for them to get into something they love but have not been able to avail themselves of an opportunity to get there. This show gives them that opportunity.

    To have crap like Krissi, who is a disgusting pig (having nothing to do with her weight) and bigot, getting attention and all the other drama, for me anyway, is just beneath what I thought this particular show was.

    But, hey, I pretty much watch all of Ramsay's shows and I get that he seems to thrive on the drama aspect. I really thought this show was going to be different. It sure seemed to start out that way.

    I'm a grown up. I don't need to see an adversary in everything I watch. This isn't Dexter. If it were, however, I'd be rooting for him to get the kill room ready for Krissi. PLEASE!

    I have to say, though, that the idea of taking a home cook, putting him/her through a cooking contest that lasts probably 3 weeks or so in real life, and calling the winner "Master Chef" is pretty ridiculous. Although hardly the most ridiculous aspect of this show ;)

    Ramsey and the others have offered a few homecooks a place in their kitchens after they were dismissed, does anyone know if they ever took them up on the offers?

    Yeah, I get that, but at least in a Hell's Kitchen/Top Chef arrangement you're working with people that are used to working in a kitchen and having to collaborate on getting a dish out.

    Isn't there a show on Food Network called "America's Best Home Cooks"? Do they also follow this same format as MasterChef or is it more like "American Baking Competition" where the bakers work individually on dishes and (at least so far) are not forced to try and work together with arbitrary teammates and/or large scale catering?

    This is my first season of MasterChef and I don't know that I connect with the amalgam of "Chopped" + "Hell's Kitchen" + "Top Chef 'Restaurant Wars episodes'" with home cooks.

    Note to self: Why do I watch so many cooking shows? :eek:

    "Worst Cook in Amarica" is a different format... it's two teams, each headed by a Food Network Chef. Each week, one person is eliminated from each team until there is one person left on each, who then compete head to head preparing a meal for a panel of culinary bigwigs. The winning head Chef gets bragging rights... I don't remember what the winning cook gets.

    I think it's a fun show, since the FN chefs are working to educate their tieam and teach the proper techniques, etc. The drama revolves almost entirely around the horrible things the cooks make/do.

    When you think that all the people on these shows have been through several stages of selection, it makes me wonder what the rejects are like!

    I, too, watch a lot of cooking shows - Chopped, Restaurant Impossible, Food Network Star and some of the hidden camera (more obviously hugely staged) shows too.

    But not as good as when she is in it. She is easily my favorite character this season.

    Noooo! Not Lynn. :(

    But that was a pathetic dish.

    Could Natasha eye roll anymore?
