So, after being scolded last week for revealing Dale’s exit from Top Chef sooner than I should have, I’ve learned my lesson and will make no comments until after the jump, save for this, TC has reclaimed the No. 1 spot in my heart.
Warning! Spoilers start immediately after the jump.
Spike’s gone! Now, I’m assuming others will be as excited as I, but it’s especially sweet vindication given my history with him. OK-it’s not a juicy history, but he was in my class at the CIA and I can honestly say he was as “pleasant” in person as he was on the show. I guess the judges felt differently than you did, Spike, about moving on to Puerto Rico. Buh-bye.
And how great was it when the past winners showed up? Regardless of the fact that I’m not a huge fan of Ilan or Hung, Harold rocks and he’s the most talented winner so far. It was a smart move to bring them back to help judge and I think I actually cheered (lame). The show is finally getting it’s groove back.
I’ve heard some feel the producers want a female to finally win , so they’ve stacked the final four with women. But I think both Stephanie and Antonia deserve to be there (most of you know my thoughts about Lisa already. Rest assured, she’ll be the first one to go). I’m rooting for both, but either way, it’s time we get a female top chef to prove that it’s not just a boy’s club anymore.
