Interesting the lack of communication between the males. Tom and Giacomo were horrible. Tom's statement that he was the toughest smartest cook there had me laughing out loud. The look between the other two on his team when he said that was priceless.
Initially I liked Heather and Sarah not as much. After last night, I'm beginning to like Sarah more and Heather less. Heather although competent seems ready to take offense at any opportunity and rub it into other people's faces. Sarah is more low key and just does what's needed.
Of course we've yet to actually see any real creative cooking. I think that's the biggest difference between this show and Top Chef.
TC is tilted towards creativity and inspiration. HK towards manegerial and organizational. And its understandable given the difference in goals and prizes in each show. Ramsey wants someone to run his operation. TC wants a chef to have their own place.
The common denominators seem to be a need for passion and adaptability.
