    Well, in the spirit of getting this thread back on track: so WTF about Micah getting sent home? Although I don't think it's immediate cause to return to the producers-made-them-do-it theory, since his concept and dish were pretty lame. 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?

    Watching the Restaurant Wars episode now and I can't shake the feeling that Josie is trolling Kristen's team on purpose.

    "I don't rush; that's not my thing." She's annoying and hilarious at the same time.

    Kristen going home would be as egregious an error as Hosea winning season five. I think this is just some produced tension before Josie goes home. At least, I hope that's what it is.

    This is some producer manipulated bullshit. Kristen comes back via Back Door Kitchen.

    She just beat CJ (who was on a 6-win streak).

    Check out the episode on the website; it's pretty good, especially when Kristen rejects Tom.

    When you think about it, the producers can just have Tom push Kristen all the way through Last Chance Kitchen and end up in the final.

    Either way, the show is entertaining. It's no Season 6 with the Voltaggios, Kevin, Eli, and Jen, but it's alright.

    As the situation played out, Josie should have gone home, as the explanation was given to the judges, I can understand how they would send Kristen home. Kristen botched the judging. She could have laid the situation out in a timeline and not come off as being bitchy, petty, or defensive.

    +1, this show has lost some credibility. this has to be the producers.
