Okay I'm not even watching this show but had a couple comments after catching 30 min of it last nite. Yes Joe B. comes off as a total dick. And yes, that young kid is full of himself but he sure cooked a great French dish. Some did surprisingly well, but I was shocked the woman with the three "soups" wasn't in the bottom 3. As Joe pointed out, it wasn't soup consistency at all, more like dips. Didn't really hear the whole review of the handsome guy's food other than the flour in the mashed was a complete misfire. I was hoping the meat would save him. Do all the judges taste the dishes? I assume yes and they just show one person to save time. Ugh, when Joe goes up there and just gives a dirty look and turns around, annoying. But does this show really need to be 2 hours? I guess it does when they end each segment before the commercial with a big pause, you know, to keep you on the edge of your seats. Well hopefully people will watch Raising Hope after the Tues. editions, it's a very cute and amusing show.
