What if they throw away the stuff in your office? The one thing others commented on -- I got the impression that the judges had a very limited # of spots to pick -- it's not like Idol where they seem to have a *vague* number in the very first rounds, but end up picking way too many, then cut huge swaths to get down to some manageable #. It seemed like they knew "you can only pick 4", so judged too quickly, then realized they should have picked the person. I wish they also closed their eyes.. They seemed to also judge it a bit on the look of the food.. I hate when Gordon Ramsay does it too. BTW, were those spoons some kind of 'standard' spoon? I doubt it because of the curved back handle that let them balance perfectly.. But the spoon part seemed mostly like "Japanese soup spoons". Don't know the proper name, but I eat a lot of soup, and use those kinds of spoons virtually all the time.
