I am officially full-on addicted to this show. The more in-depth they go with each contestant (as the group is whittled down), the more I like it. I think the shopping and food preparation is getting more air time as well.
I gotta say, I'm a little sick of Harold, Tiffany and Steven bitching about how the challenges are beneath their talents. Not only do they come across as arrogant, but I think anyone whose passion and profession is food should embrace the opportunity to make creative, nonconventional recipes. The gas station food was a little extreme but how many times have you conjured up dinner from a half dozen mismatched week-old items in the fridge? I do think that is a measure of culinary capabilities.
Although I found her totally endearing, I think it was clear that Candace needed to go. I also wonder how long Andrea is going to last. How many times can you sell a meal by talking about your colon??
