I missed the first few minutes of this because of my food obsession... I was at T.rader Joe's. Yes, 1969, I did get the pot stickers. I will let you know how they taste later. I also got the fruit floes popsicles. Mmmmmm!! Strawberry is my favorite. They have real fruit in them and TASTE LIKE IT! Because I missed the first few minutes, though, I missed one of my favorite parts, THE QUICK FIRE!! SON OF A!!
This episode was all about going to people's houses, stealing their food (ok asking for it) to create meals for the annual block party. I don't like corn dogs. There was a group that did those, sliders (mmmm! y'all know how I feel about a burger!), some other stuff and pasta salad. The pasta salad and corn dogs were determined to be the bottom dishes. The giant made the corn dogs. (He still might not be CJ tall. That was a huge man. And the visiting chefs would say stuff like, "You're quite tall chef." And he would say something like, "Thank you sir." Thank you because I didn't notice? If you hadn't pointed that out I might have gotten the 28 shorts instead of the 28 longs? I don't get this. Pointing out to short or tall people that they are so... is stupid.)
There's a lesbian couple competing as separate chefs. I got pissed when at first it looked like they were a team. I was like WHAT IS THIS!??! THERE AIN'T NO TEAMS ON TOP CHEF!! Then I calmed it on down. For this challenge, they were on the same team. The one part of this couple (Z) got left with the wack dish-- the pasta salad. She didn't speak up even though she didn't want it. Here we go again. This week they learned from last week's group challenge to TASTE EVERY DISH. They all thought the pasta was fine, the judges all said it was bland. You all look stupid. They did NOT heed the common sense theme for all reality shows requiring a group, "IF. YOU. HAVE. RESERVATIONS. SPEAK. UP. OR. YOU. COULD. GO. HOME." I'm tired of having to say this. They sent home corn dog man "because you make these every day and should've known they would not hold up for hours." They did not send home Z even though her pasta is bland.
I BLAME THE PRODUCERS!!! They know this early in the show it is more fruitful drama-wise and more people will tune in to watch the lesbian couple than the giant. WACK!! You sent people home for two consecutive weeks for having poorly-seasoned food. One of those also broke the cardinal reality tv rule: SPEAK UP!! This chick did both of those and stayed. I'M CRYING FOUL!! Y'all made me mad producers. Do better next week i.e. STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN!!
