Should I bother? Top Chef Just Desserts Ep 3 9/7 (spoiler)

I posted last week, and not even 10 posts. Shows you how few people are watching this show, or cared enough about what they saw to comment. We said it first episode - underwhelming.

The Quickfire was nothing but a conduit for sponsor exposure. And guest judge Hugh Acheson (Mr. Unibrow) was a mite annoying with his oddball facial expressions, very much like on Top Chef Masters. That Craig won was okay, but a bit of a fluke.

Then another blatant promo by centering the Elimination around that Bravo show I won't waste time making comments on. Suffice it to say, I found it painful to watch the dog-handler husband, who was first to point out that he plays second fiddle to the pup where his wife is concerned. Poor chap, but then, he's laughing all the way to the bank for every minute he's on screen, so what does he really care?

Anyway...things seemed pretty evenly matched overall between the two teams, but basically as overblown as RHOBH is. Some desserts were very nicely done, Nelson made bad decisions, and Craig was damned lucky he had immunity (as Iuzzini told him).

Anyone else have anything more?
