As for "PR" I am sorry. Really.... Back in school when the first season premiered we would have to wait for the girls to get done with "PR" before they would even come out... being intrigued I checked it out. I left with one conclusion, you have to be a girl or be gay to really enjoy this. Otherwise you would be sane and just DVR best week ever and catch them making fun of all the peeps.

1) I think a lot of our differences over Andrew are tied to the fact that you didn't really start watching before last season. I think the cooking was very good last season, but as a whole it was my least favorite cast (personality wise) thus far. That said, Andrew in the Bears helmet was one of the highlights and I am willing to cede your point on us not actually tasting the food (although if I had any skillz I would just steal the recipes from the Top Chef website and do my thing, but I am void of skillz)
2) Jen absolutely should have been included, my mistake. I'll squeeze her in just above Andrew.
3) Something in my brain cannot watch a show about designing clothes, but to each his/her own....
4) I still need to catch up on this season (planning on it this weekend as I said) then I'll be able to comment on this season v. last.

To me, Leah is one of those chicks you look at and say, "hey, she's kinda hot". Then the next time you see her, you wonder to yourself, "what the hell was I thinking?". Back and forth...with no finite resolution. Didn't they make a Seinfeld episode based on this very phenomenon?

DiminishingSkills wrote:Any other Top Chef fans out there?I am addicted to this show, as in Chipotle addicted -- I simply have to have my fix on Wednesday nights. Don't know if it is because of the food, the competition, the reality-show drama (and I normally can't stand reality shows), Gail Simmons' huge rack, the potential appearance of Anthony Bourdain as a guest judge, or the lovely Padma Laskhmi as host. (Actually, I do know. It's Padma. I'd watch the show if it were just her reading from a phone book for 60 minutes.)I know of at least a couple of board regulars who need their fix too (I won't "out" them here though) ... wondering if anybody else likes the show.

I Heart Fabio.BTW -- on a Top Chef-related note -- if you are ever in the Boston area and get the chance to eat at Blue Ginger, the restaurant of Ming Tsai (who has been a guest judge on a couple of episodes), go. Great food. Got to see Ming himself; was tempted to ask him if Padma lights up between takes, or if she is just that naturally mellow.

That said, I'll be both surprised and not so surprised if he does or doesnt take home the competition. He's the most talented chef I've seen out of the couple seasons I've watched, but the show's hyped him as so unstoppable that they might be setting up a huge giants-pats super bowl 42 upset.

Average at best cooks who should have been eliminated multiple times getting lucky at the end with dishes that are right in their wheel house and squeaking into the finals.I hate them both and if they never get a chance to be on television again the world will be a better place.Fabio was my hero last week.And yes, Blais was the best ever. How he managed to lose is still beyond me.
