Advertisements I've always thought this show to be, by far, the best food reality show on TV and last nights premiere only confirms my thoughts. This show is really about cooking and skill. It's great to see that they haven't messed with the formula after a few seasons to get more ratings. The only downside, was the guy from Mississippi or Alabama. He had very little, if any, culinary training and he appeared only selected for drama/comedy. Otherwise, I think this may be the strongest group of contestants yet. A lot less caterer's and home cooks and mostly executive chefs/owners/sous chefs/etc... I loved the guy from Dallas that lost the quick fire and won the elimination comp. But I predict that Marcel's buddy (Hung?) is going to win it all.
