    No - but the implication was that she won because of her story and not her cooking. I was just disagreeing with what I inferred from your post. :)

    Glad to see Christine as the winner. Her palate and consistency gave her the edge.

    Well, I'm kind of glad it's over. I kind of felt like Josh was the winner. Not that I was rooting for him, or either of them actually...I was still bummed that it wasn't Frank and Becky. But I was pretty sure that, unless there were glaring problems, Christine would get the win as long as it was close.

    I don't think they chose her based on her challenges but sometimes I felt like she got a little edge here and there because of it. Over all I feel like these judges are fair.

    That's a different show with a different set of rules.

    After 10 or whatever of these, they need to throw all of the winners into Hell's Kitchen.

    Or give the prize be a choice of whatever they get now and going onto hell's kitchen.

    that wouldn't be fair, these amateur home cooks would run circles around the professional chefs

    What they get now is $250,000 and a cookbook published.

    What you get if you lose HK: AFAIK, nothing.

    What you get if you win HK: a $250,000 job as "head chef" (where you still have to work under the restaurant's "executive chef")

    Not much of a choice, if you ask me, although giving the winner her prize and putting her on a future HK may not be such a bad idea.

    Not to mention the fact that HK is a reality show and Masterchef is more a competition!

    Master Chef is (so far) a classy show while Hell's Kitchen seems to attract an enormous percentage of trashy contestants.
    I don't want any crossover.

    I didn't word it well, I meant still give them some huge pile of cash, but not as much, but let them go on HC.

    BTW, Christine was on Nightline last night. I listened to the audio podcast (free).

    Her oven mitts made me laugh.

    They said her cookbook is out next week, cool.

    Indeed :(

    I really liked him.

    Somebody needs to slap me the next time I read a news story and then scroll down to see the comments. There must be a moron squad out there seeking any and all news stories for the purpose of making assinine, troll-style, comments. I need to commit to resisting the temptation to look. :mad:
