    That dish looked disgusting.

    I'm over Natasha and Krissy - they both need to go home.

    But I love Luca - I know he won't win, but I think he's just adorable (and I'll forgive his love for the Yankees).

    I'm thinking the front runner is Jessie or Jordan.

    Krissi just gets more and more ugly each episode. I can't believe she was bragging on national television about how she used to bully and assault other girls in high school.

    WTF was that thing that Lynn made?! I can't imagine a dessert looking more unappetizing.

    I know Bri is a vegetarian, but I don't understand why she hasn't practiced cooking some meat in preparation for being on the show. She must have known that she'd be required to cook animal proteins. Why didn't she practice cooking some chicken breasts at home before coming on the show? Even if she couldn't taste her work, she could at least learn how long to cook chicken to ensure that it is cooked through. And probably she knows a meat-eater who would taste-test for her. I just don't get why you wouldn't do the most basic preparation for a show like this. It's like people who go on the Amazing Race and don't bother to learn to drive stick or swim beforehand. I just don't understand it.

    You can't be a good cook unless you taste/smell the food. Blind (and assisted) sure, but Bri will go when the script calls for it because there will be a "If only you tasted it..." decision moment.

    I think until/unless the menu goes to lot's of fried and baked, niether of which can be done easily on a yacht, the blond should do well. She is regularly charged with cooking with fresh food obtained last minute and easily delivered dock side up to the capacity of her passenger count plus crew. It's a daily challenge depending on the port and the market.

    The All Star game was BS. Filming ended long ago. So those 5 go to the game next week eve after filming is over? Possible, yes, but seems odd.

    Anyone else really hoping Krissi would actually take a swing at Bri so that the producers would have to step in and kick her ass out? Or was that just me?

    I actually was worried for Bri in the wine room, Krissy does not look like the powered keg I'm willing poke with my torch.

    Lynn's dessert really was about the least appetizing thing I have seen on a TV cooking show. Surely there is some back story about a failed first attempt that resulted in that bloody puss cowpile.

    I do have to say that I really enjoyed the surfer voting tease that prompted Krissy's "I've never been on a winning team before!" bit. :D

    Maybe I missed it - but I don't know why the losing team's food was bad. They all seemed to rave about the sauce, and they seemed to be serving up pretty fast except towards the end - but the other team had serious serving problems up front and the sauce was not as good.

    On the one hand I was sorry to see him go but on the other I am relieved at no longer having to worry about his sweat dripping into the food.

    As far as being worried for Bri, I was not. She shut Krissy up pretty effectively (she's a bully and bullies always cave when confronted by someone unafraid), and IMO the crew would have stepped in had Krissy gotten physical. I suspect that Bri felt it worth a hit or two to have Krissy tossed out and I also think like sushikitten that she would be eliminated if she hit anyone.

    Natasha annoys me.

    I only got one hour this week. Did I miss something or is that all that aired?

    How is Luca still skating by? I noticed that his sausage exploded in the mystery box challenge.

    Happy to see Bri win something. I know there is no chance she will win, but I am rooting for her as an underdog.

    Technically, it's two hours, but the first hour is just a repeat of the previous week's second hour.

    Funny. I knew who was going home quite early in this episode. I'm not sure why, but my mind just said "Bethy's going home tonight" before the Elimination Challenge even started!

    I was wondering about that. I thought maybe they had caught up close to real-time after they mentioned those tickets. If all filming was done a while ago I wonder why they made an effort to make it look like it was going on this Summer?

    When it was recorded certainly would not make me any more or any less likely to watch it.

    Marketing.

    The All Star game was shown on Fox - they were just pimping their own broadcast event.

    This. All it was was co-marketing. Which is why it was BS in my mind.

    I don't see the hate. Many shows are recorded in advance and often include seasonal elements - like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Super Bowl and much more, so how is this any different?

    It's to be expected that a network will plug upcoming events like this, so I just see it as normal!

    Anyway, to this week's episode. Am I the only one who wants to see Krissi go down in flames in a huge way?

    I was sorry to see Bri go, but I couldn't see a vegetarian succeed in a general cooking competition. I'm sure she's great with veggies and she's shown a fairly deft touch with the meat protiens she's had to work with, but not being able to taste her food must be a major disadvantage in a contest like this.

    Krissi is there because of luck and a moderate ability to create flavor - and just not being quite bad enough. With the numbers thinning, it's only a matter of time. I would doubt the producers would want someone like that winning and being a spokesperson for the show.

    Unless they throw something crazy, Jordan/Jessie/Eddie are the top 3 at this point. Krissy/Luca are next out. Natasha/James could go into either group, depending on how the producers want to amp the drama.

    Krissy appears to be a great home cook. I would definitely enjoy the meals she makes. But she is a world-class a-hole, and there is almost zero chance she wins.

    If she stuck around to eat with me then no I would not enjoy her food.

    If a Blind woman can win the competition I could see a vegetarian being able to win it too. Of course that isn't going to be the case. But for me, I would like to see Krissi in the final two.
