With all of the great recaps out there about Top Chef (see David Dust's blog if you don't believe me) I have decided that when it comes to Top Chef I will keep it brief and to the point.
Basically last night after a relay QuickFire Challenge, the cheftestants (love it) were then told that the Elimination Challenge was all about planning the food for a wedding (125 people).
Two teams of four split up with one taking the bride's favorites and the other taking the groom's. The team who won (the bride's side) consisted of Richard, Antonia, Stephanie and Andrew (minus Andrew a real dream team). The losing team included Dale, Lisa (yuck), Nikki and Spike. The real kicker came when Spike and Dale had a throw down in the judging room. There was a lot of screaming and yelling about who did more work (by the way sounds like my house on the weekend). Caught in the crossfire, Nikki went home.
After Dale and Spike hugged it out, Nikki said her goodbyes and the group is down to seven. A few observations; Andrew is like a child with ADD. You never know how he is going to react or participate in anything. It's like a crap shoot. Dale showed his ass during judging with the "oh woe is me" (is that how you say that?) attitude. Someone on that team should have had the balls (or as Mark once said testicular fortitude) to be in charge. Every team needs a leader and this was so evident during last nights challenge. Spike's passive aggressive shit is not going to play much longer. He is worried about Spike and only Spike and eventually this attitude will come back to bite him in the ass (my goodness I am cussing a lot today). OH and Lisa (yuck, again) a doorag, are you kidding me? Please just do something and get booted, I can no longer listen to you bitch and I cannot look at the scowl (or sarcastic smirk) on your face any longer. Till next week.
