Stephanie actually smiled at Judges' Table. i didn't think she had it in her.
Well, to be fair, they did give them overnight and a bunch of crockpots to do a challenge - and even then some of them came up a little short.
I have said it before but it's like going to Survivor and not learning how to make fire before hand. Taste your food! So many times "underseasoned" and "overseasoned" is heard.
...and make sure you can drive stick in The Amazing Race!
Well played. That made me chuckle!
No way he should have gone home over some of the others. Way bummed he was my favorite.
Was anybody else a little surprised that they are still rebuilding 7 years after Katrina?
I don't think the city will ever be totally re-built to the way it was before. So many people left.
Not at all. There are a lot of people who didn't have insurance or their homes weren't covered due to the 'is it a hurricane or was it a flood that damaged their homes?' issue. A lot of insurance companies tried to claim it was flood damage, and not hurricane damage, so they wouldn't have to pay out. I seem to recall a lawsuit on behalf of some for that reason.
When people weren't getting insurance to rebuild, they've been living in FEMA trailers or other places, and homes are just left to rot. I'm sure Habitat for Humanity and others have a strong presence in the area. It takes a while to voluntarily build a house. And what many people don't know about Habitat is that it isn't a free home. It's a home with a decreased mortgage that they must still qualify for.
I agree...I guess I just thought any rebuilding that was going to be done would have already been done at least as far as residential homes go.
For people with insurance and money, maybe. But those without that?
Captain Vietnam - interesting episode. They essentially allowed people to gain instruction for this one. However, for some reason, I seem to recall hearing once that Vietnamese food had French influences, but I must be remembering wrong. Must be another that I'm thinking of.
I think the tomato based idea should have been put Travis higher on the chopping block. I'm guessing they decided that poor shrimp cooking skill was a worse crime than cooking a food that wasn't true to form.
Interestingly enough, there seem to be fewer immunity challenges.
Since this is my thread, I'm including spoilers for Last Chance Kitchen. I'm surprised they waited as long to start it. I assume that Tom didn't want to slog as hard. It gave him a break.
Bret still gets to go home. Cracked me up. I guess cooking the fish was too much for him. He seems to let his ego get in the way. He does too little and thinks that it makes him awesome. He bragged about having all sorts of extra time during the regular show. Going raw meant that his extra stuff needed to be awesome. I don't understand white chocolate with corn either. That just sounds gross. And did anyone notice that he tasted his food with his bare finger, and then put that finger in again, and tasted it one more time? What happened to tasting spoons? I'm noticing more and more of that this season where people are not using tasting spoons. It really bugs me. It tells me that they are all so used to doing it that it is considered normal in a regular kitchen. It also explains how people get food poisoning so easily. They catch all sorts of stuff from the people who prepare their food.
Hottie Australian girl is gone.
That's what you get for abusing the shrimps.
You've got it right. Vietnam was once a French colony.
It just seems that that piece of information was completely lost. It's something you usually hear. However, none of their dishes seemed to be inspired by French cooking at all. It would have been a way to help the more classicly trained chefs.
Go watch Last Chance Kitchen. Tom ribs her about the shrimps.
I think most of the influences date back so far that it be unknown to some of the contestants. However, I would have at least expected the judges to bring it up, especially at the bakery.
I had to check Wikipedia to see if Prudhomme had suffered a stroke or something. It was either that or he was on a large dose of Oxycontin.
I thought of you last night, when I watched and she got the ax.
I just knew that Braggy McBraggerson with all the Viet Nam experience was not going to do well. He just wouldn't listen to anybody and fancied himself the one person with all the superior VN experience. I actually thought he was the one who was going to be cut.
He used to use a little electric scooter to get around. But he was walking in the show. I thought maybe he was doing better.
That's always some good foreshadowing. Some guy that's an "expert" in a specific cuisine and goes on and on about it. He may be the one to get sent packing his knives.
