A blind woman can at least taste everything before presenting it!

Yes but the fact that she was blind and still had great presentations was simply amazing.

She was allowed some assistance in getting her supplies and position and, contrary to popular belief, had some sight.

Blind people don't just see nothing. Most actually can see shapes, however blurry they may be.

Not to take anything away from Christine. I admire her immensely!!

This week's episode - (7/31?) -

So, has everybody stopped watching? ha! Krissi actually acting human was kind of disconcerting. Granted, it was for the express purpose of staying in the game. Will we ever be rid of her?

I love how they just come right out and say stuff like asking Natasha what she thought about being paired with 'the anchor' Krissi. LMAO - Please somebody make her (K) go away!

It's getting down there now. Krissi is definitely not even the best of the bunch, but I have a feeling somebody else better than her will be gone before she is. Ugh, am I starting to act like her? oy

Kind of a bummer that Eddie went home, but he really tanked on that Sushi challenge. He was awesome at meats, did okay with a few other things, but didn't have the depth to be the champion. Seemed a great guy.

I liked Eddie.

All the Sushi looked terrible...I thought it was pretty obvious that they were making a story out of Natasha/Krissi vs. Luka - because theirs didn't look any better or worse than anybody else's

I liked Eddie too. One thing, though, that I did appreciate about this episode was that the one who failed the worst in the big challenge was the one who went home. I prefer that to having a big challenge and then several compete again for the worst. If it's the big challenge, I think the one who fails the worst in the big challenge should go home. But then it's not my show. But I give it points for being more fair, even though I'd rather have not seen Eddie booted out.

I think we all know who I want to see gone, but she lucked out AGAIN and was paired with somebody who excels.

Several of the things mentioned were not visual per se. Like Krissy/Natasha's rice was properly done. Sushi rice is a pretty touchy balance of sweet vs. vinegar, and it can be terrible if done wrong. I believe their tempura batter was also done correctly.

And they were right, Jessie mangled that yellowtail that was on their plate.

Yup - it was terrible...shredded up with little patches of skin on it.

I would have eaten all of it anyway...terrible looking or not.

Yeah, we sometimes make sushi at home. It certainly never looks restaurant grade, but it sure tastes good.

Was glad to see Bri come back into the game. I think she has a good chance to go to the end, and she annoys Krissi.

As I've said before, this practice of bringing back eliminated players is annoying to me. I may be done with all of these shows because I really don't think it is fair to the people who worked hard to stay.

If the contestants don't like it then they can quit. Bringing back someone who got cut is nothing new. it can chnage the dynamics. I would not want them to get rid of that. It makes the show more interesting.

I think I have suddenly lost all interest. Last night I went to watch the recent episode and, before it even started, I said f-it and zipped to the end to see who was eliminated.

That disgusting pig Krissi (not pig cuz of how she looks, rather pig cuz she is such a nasty person-sorry, pigs) and all the drama they try to create are the two things that have ruined it for me.

Initially, it seemed like it was more about the contestants abilities and more straight-forward competitions. Now, it's just about trying to create uber-drama and really stupid challenges and twists.

Sorry - this wasn't meant as a thread-crap. Just a reflection of my rapidly waning interest in what used to be a good show.

I like Luka too.

I question the integrity of the competition every week. Not the drama between contestants, per se....but the manufactured **** with the judges.

I was kind of irritated to see how many eggs they wasted, too.

Funny. I thought about that too.

Some time ago, I remember there was a campaign regarding the food waste in TV cooking shows and (in the UK) at least, waste was reduced to an absolute minimum and anything cooked had to be either eaten or donated to a good cause.

Seems to me that it's time to reintroduce something similar today.

Donate? Eat. I love eggs.

It would be like you watching someone abuse a Classic Camaro. Painful.

But from a waste perspective, they could have easily done best out of 3 eggs...or a restaurant challenge where they are preparing food for people that are actually going to eat it.

I don't like food waste.

She is a vegetarian. If she is tasting it then she is cheating.

I only started watching last season. But lately I've really gotten into the show. I hadn't planned on watching it Wednesday night since it was already late, but when I realized that it was the show with contestants that got kicked off, I ended up watching it and being up past midnight.
Maybe I should watch one of the earlier seasons for comparison. But I really like this season.

Personally though you would have to pay me a boatload of guaranteed money to ever consider being on any of these reality shows.

Being totally NOT a kid person, I have no interest in the kiddie version. But I hope it's enjoyable for those who decide to tune in.

I don't plan on watching the MC jr show, but I will still set up an SP for it. So if I am in the mood to check it out, at least it will be there.

I'm fed up with the manufactured drama on this show(and other reality shows) though I keep watching BBC America's Masterchef has drama that simply comes from will the chef mess up, will Michel Roux and Monica like the food? No phony interference from producers.
Just finished watching MC:The Professionals 2012 season and loved it. Now watching the 2011 season. Love the show. Fabulous food.
