I thought the Quickfire was wicked mean, but a lot of fun. It really put the chefs on the spot. I liked the way some of them thought, but especially Leah.
Achatz has always been kind of a clean cut type with short hair etc. I didn't recognize him at first. Its good to see him though, after all the travails he had to go through.
I was hoping Team Cougar would come through, and they almost did. Eugene is really surprizing me. This is what coming up through the ranks while you are resourceful will get you. Ariane's turkey did look very good. I couldn't tell just how good the vegan dressing was.

Carla is growing on me. Except I cringe every time she goes hippy dippy.
Jeff is just an angry young man, he had the Hung syndrome, I will carry the team, its a group competition, organize it but let everyone do their thing and don't bite off too much.
I would love to taste that pumpkin tiramisu though.
Not a big fan of smores and wouldn't know if it was wrong anyways.
So Richard is going home without fulfilling his dreams of being with the the Big Tom Bear. Maybe they will give him a life size cutout.
