Okay, there is NO way Nikki should have gone home before Rodney and that's all there is to it. Seems to me they simply wanted to have 2 men and 2 women at the end.
Rodney has made what--one thing?--that anyone thought was good. Why is he still there? (By the way, walking on tip toes and pulling back the shoulders doesn't make that gut look any slimmer. A chef's jacket might be a good investment and allow him to breathe more.)
But I agree with those of you who aren't really interested in watching ANY of these people on their own show. The only one I've liked from the beginning is Demaris. And as someone pointed out before: they spent the first half of the competition telling her not to be herself to then doing an about face and insisting she be more like herself.
If Stacy wins, she could do something like "Vintage Cooking with the Stepford Wives."
