    Didn't seem like there were that many interesting characters. Not sure how long I will stay tuned in.

    I don't get Bravo at my current place. I'll have to watch online or catch up next week when my friend invited people over to watch.

    The executive chef going up against his sous chef might be an interesting storyline.

    Perhaps, if I could stand to look at all those tats, piercings and bizarre heed shaving.

    Didn't understand the gimmick of starting with larger pool and winnowing it down rapidly. The seasons only become fully enjoyable when there are about eight chefs left anyways.

    +1 on 8 chefs. I tend to forget who the early-booted were for the most part, unless they were pretty girls.

    Borrowed from The Ultimate Fighter. You don't know how good the competitors are, or how much they want to be there, until they prove it under pressure.

    OK, she's not thin but she cooked a good dish. Never trust a skinny cook, as they say.

    Although watching that pasty-faced freak get booted off after five minutes of butchering was really, really satisfying.

    The guy from Santa Monica who compared himself to Blais and Voltaggio could be worth watching.

    I know one of the chefs but am on the road and haven't had a chance to watch yet (don't generally watch the show). Who got cut?


    EDIT: Found the clips and results; she's on the bubble.

    i don't know ... caught up with it on dvr last night. the show has really evolved from early years where it was a mix of "who's that" professionals and fairly talented amateurs to this year where there appears to be really strong top-to-bottom talent. i know this is a progression ... there were really good cooks last year, too, but more dross, it seemed. Still, it remains to be seen whether that makes for entertaining television. could be more like one of those horrible "chefs tables" where some people think it's a privilege just to be in the kitchen.
