Top Chef: Just Desserts S1 Episode 2

I haven't seen anyone post a recap of this episode? Sorry, I don't have the patience to do it, so will cut to the chase and go straight to the drama...

WTH with Seth??? In another thread, I had mentioned I had pegged the quiet potential pyscho... well Seth was in that category but I honestly didn't think he would snap/break down until further in the competition.

I just couldn't believe this 34yr old man wailed "The red hots are for my mommy" on national TV. He was acting and sounding like a 3 or 4 yr old, not a 34yr old! His behavior was really erratic during this entire episode and I was seriously starting to wonder if he has ADHD or is possibly bipolar.

I wanted drama, but good drama that comes out through competitive cooking. Not this type of drama where I'm questioning the emotional stability of a contestant. And this is only week 2!

If any contestant, not just Seth, is not mentally or emotionally strong enough for this competition, I would hope that the producers quickly see that and remove that person, rather than keeping them to try and prolong the drama and/or generate ratings.
