Advertisements I gotta say, I'm really enjoying this season of Top Chef. Dunno, I liked the contestants from last season but this season is just grabbing me a bit more. Jennifer and Micheal as a team is a winner, no doubt. Am I the only one who thinks there are sparks between them (I hate myself for bringing that up). Bryan and Mike also made a good team. I'd say Bryan pulled more of the weight since the sauce idea was his but Mike didn't screw up either. I really thought Mattin was going to be toast given that there is a tradition of contestants going home on their birthdays. Spoiler The quickfire elimination was harsh, especially for Jesse who just never found her feet with the show. Oh well. Spoiler First man packs his knives. Finally the "favoritism" is over.
