    Ate at Estes restaurant last week (she was there). Solid entree but really a BAD dessert. Like sub olive garden level. :) When we left she was yapping with a couple people about her pig supplier and how she will only buy sustainable pig. Conversation went on for 10+ minutes easy. :)

    It ended up about as I would have expected, but then again, not so much.

    While I wasn't surprised by the winner, I think the competitor in the final 2 was the better chef throughout the competition. That said, I'm happy that both of the finalists made it that far and think both were good candidates for the next iron chef.

    I guess I wasn't surprised either, but I WAS rooting for the other chef. Oh well - I need to stop making picks because my picks, no matter what contest, never win. wah :) I'll survive. I just think they missed the opportunity, first a few weeks ago, then again last night, to have a truly amazing IC.

    Well, actually, I chose Symon in the first NIC contest. I chose him in the very beginning of the season and Besh was my second pick. Guess I did well that year...just not so well since.

    No surprise here, though I hoped for Amanda to win. I predicted this outcome since the first episode based on how Alex was profiled back then. Of course it is possible she was profiled that way because the producers already knew the outcome after filming was done.

    It would have been interesting to see the 'scores', like on a regular Iron Chef show, to see how close those two really were.

    Of course, how many Iron Chefs are there now? 42?

    I actually found myself rooting for Alex in the last battle, but I had been rooting for both of them throughout the competition.

    Acording to the official website , 8.

    Although, I haven't seen Cat Cora nor Mario Batali battling in a long time, and I'm not sure they are actually active Iron Chefs.

    Same here. I'd have preferred Freitag too.

    Yeah, Batali and Cora seem to be gone from ICA.

    Iron Chefs of America: Morimoto, Flay, Batali (gone?), Cora (gone?), Symon, Forgione, Garces, Zakarian, and now Guarnaschelli. While I like the show, adding an Iron Chef every year seems to... diminish the status of the originals.

    And Puck (gone because the show moved to NY).I wonder if Garces or Forgione might be quietly retired, or if Symon might decide to focus on The Chew.
