Top Chef 2:4, or WHO cheated with extra olive oil?

pitu | Nov 9, 2006 11:49 AM

Some quick thoughts on last night's Top Chef . . .

1. I love Suzanne Goin. She was one of the best guest judges they've had.

2. the low brow vending machine challenge . . . nice to see some of them really pull it off
(and I only believed it because the guest judging was a real chef)

3. I like the stricture of a 500 calorie meal for all the obvious reasons...
"yeah baby, how can you work that without the extra 1000 calories?"
I think the show should have used the nutritionist cops for both days -- it's fair to expect people to make adjustments in a competition..

4. WTF with the olive oil squeeze bottle? The Betty thing is completely different than the un-explored olive oil thing. Was the group that managed to be under 400, and so had leeway? Unlikely . . .
(cue the ominous music)
