What? No one has started the thread for tonight's episode yet? But I don't start threads!
MB...gone! Finally. She irked me even more than usual tonight. She referred too often to her creativity. The judges referred to her creativity and knowledge of food. I just didn't really see either in her. Not an absence of knowledge, mind you, just nothing remarkable. And I really didn't see the creativity tonight.
Penny was atrocious. I didn't dislike her as much as others during her run, but she was just awful tonight. I'm not a great cook, but I would have a chance of beating her food prep speed if I were asleep.
Glad to see Susie do so well with her dishes. Jeff I felt bombed it with his three mayo lobster sandwiches (though not as much as MB with her three poorly executed dishes). Vic was...eh. Though he did inspire me to take some ground lamb out of the freezer.
None of them interested me on the commentary. Maybe I'm just a curmudgeon tonight. I just don't feel like any of them were explaining anything to us. Vic's triple "not a bad dish" at judging was pretty funny.
There was no tension when the judges identified the bottom two. Everyone knew at that point that MB was going home. There was no way they were picking her over Jeff for final three. I think MB and Jeff knew it, Susie and Vic knew it, the judges knew it, we knew it.
