OK, so Dale wins the quickfire and Tre wins the elimination. Sarah Nugyen is the next person to be thrown under the bus by Howie. Granted Sarah Nugyen really didn't pull her weight, and I thought the rest of the chefs really didn't feel like she belonged because the big farewell was really subdued. Maybe they all saw it coming.
I liked what Dale said about Hung's quickfire stuff, it was hilarious. Of course Hung finished last in the quickfire challenge with Casey and her Surache ice cream.
The whole premise of the elimination challenged was wicked, not that I didn't enjoy it. But that is just playing with people's heads. You could just see all of them deflate when they saw Padma Govind Armstrong.
The shrimp on grits by Tre looked awesome. Ted Allen made a good point of saying that the ceviche was tasty but then how hard is it to make ceviche tasty.
I am liking Howie less and less, he is a real weasel. Things begin to look bad and he starts to ooze out of his skin trying to get out of trouble. He did manage to get rid of one of the Sarah's. She was a weak link though.
By the way, this episode was kind of cool for me because I am a big volleyball fan. So when CJ said that he played pro volleyball for three years, I looked him up. Don't know where he went to college but he played on a team that finished second this year in USA Volleyball Men's Open. This is the top level of competition in adult volleyball. The teams are usually made up of former college players, i.e. you gotta have game to play there. Now I want to know where he played in college and pros.
