Uh, because running a restaurant and cooking isn't an extreme sport, and has little to do with this kind of TV shit?

Well, there are times when it can seem like an extreme sport, but it certainly has little to do this kind of TV....

There's no doubt that your bottom line IS indeed obvious. But Jen is not a good example of it.

too much salt is dangerous to your health. Dale got lucky last week...but this isn't the first time it's sent a good chef home!

I hate it when they handicap the chefs with unrealistic limitations. I want to see the best food, not the best food they make with a spork and hot plate.

Angelo has been lackluster this whole season.

Strange, since they basically made this particular season for him to win, especially after the fan reaction of Kenny winning last season.

how so? he's won or been in the top all but two times and never been in the bottom except for today. seriously though, this challenge was just straight retarded.

Was so impressed, that I went ahead and made Angelo's braised pork belly with homemade ramen noodles (minus the watermelon foam); it was the furthest thing from lackluster.

Didn't see that elimination coming. I think it was a case of burn out from doing two competitions back to back, as Angelo stated.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I thought Carla was going for sure.... but this is clearly evidence that past performance is worth nothing. Tiffany has no wins - was in the bottom against two far better contestants. It should have been a no brainer
And FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU Anthony Bourdain for Dissing the Tony Chachere's in a Jambalaya.

In a perfect world, this would be the top 4...maybe antonia instead of carla but blaise, dale and angelo seemed like the 3 most talented and experienced cooks.

Not really sure how that clown Mike Isabella is still around...

I was surprised but not heartbroken with the elimination last night. I'm in shock that Angelo didn't taste and realize that his soup was incredibly salty. It's one thing to make a lackluster soup (Carla) but another to serve something that is inedible.

I'm thinking Blaise, Dale, Antonia as the final 3.
