Top Chef Backlash [Spoilers in Post]

OK - Ilan wins....for what???? Spanish food in Hawaii??? Wylie Dufresne seems to have been muzzled throughout. Tom C. bent over backward to praise Ilan's pedestrian takes on a fairly tired approach. Newsflash folks: The culinary world is moving toward new techniques and innovative preparations and, like it or not, Chef Colicchio should get with the program and at least develop an appreciation for such approaches. In this episode he comes off as a culinary Neanderthal. Ah let's all imagine what if Ferran Adria and/or even Tony Bourdain was the executive chef/host of Top Chef. Now there's a program worthy of the 21st century!!
