Well I've read everyone's comments. Any ideas for the top 4 or the winner.
I think after one show the favorites (not based on judging necessarily) are Richard, Stephanie - if she can control her nerves, Dale, and Antonia. I think Nikki and Lisa are the dark horses. And I could see either Andrew or Zoi being out soon. The only thing that makes me wonder about Andrew is the editing. Why would he get so much face time in episode one, if he wasn't going to be there for a while?
I have to say I think Richard is by far the best all around chef so far, but then again, everyone said that about Tre last season.
My early season pick is Antonia. I think her pizza despite looking a little messy was a good combination. Prosciutto, Burrata Cheese w/tomatoes and arugla is a nice ombination. Her main dish I'm judging strictly by Rocco's reaction, when he looked like a little kid who ate his first cookie. Say what you will about Rocco, but his reaction said volumes. She's my week one pick to take it down!
