It'll be super interesting to see how the next episode plays out, especially since the promo is already setting us up for yet another Josie meltdown.
Also, anyone else enjoying Last Chance Kitchen almost as much as the actual episodes?
His concept and food were definitely lame. But Josie's cheesy pork was disgusting looking and, apparently, nearly inedible. All she does is over- or under-cook a protein, then drench it in a yellow-orange cheese sauce. Everything she makes could come off the TGIF menu or the back of a Velveeta box. So, I can't see how her condemnable execution was better than Micah's merely boring and incoherent sushi-but-not-sushi-but-really-is-sushi.
Then, it had to be a triumph of concept. Miami-style street food. Whatever that is (pardon my ignorance). But, is it cheesy pork?
