Here are my notes from the latest ep:

(during the credits)
Aww, remember Manuel? Me, either…

What is this triumphant glorious march music they’re playing for the women? And Lisa donning her kerchief like it’s a helmet before she marches off to war? ha! the war against greasy hair!

finally, no more immunity!

oh they totally think they’re going to do Restaurant Wars! I feel kinda bad for them… and me… and all of us really since that would be way better than this wedding nonsense

early call – Lisa’s going down (turns out that was just wishful thinking)

OOOO! the relay race was the SHIT!

dude, monkfish is NARSTY lookin

Woohoo! Blaze!

If Nikki doesn’t know how to make mayo why is she doing it?

Supreming is HARD (although maybe they don’t think so considering they had a 10 year old doing it last week!)

What’s with Antonia’s red knife blade?

I don’t get the artichoke thing – they should have explained what they were supposed to do more clearly

turns out, monkfish filleting is pretty boring to watch

Dale is a good team player… until they LOSE!

honestly they could start every ep with a relay race and i’d be happy

HATE the wedding wars concept!!!

again – these are CHEFS! i don’t give two shits if they can cater! just like i don’t care if they can cook for a bland family palate on a budget!

(incidentally i saw a few eps from season 1 the other day and they were SO GOOD! the street food challenge was awesome, the Ted Allen dinner party, cooking for high rollers in Vegas…. that’s Chefing!)

Spike should shut up about how bride’s are all obsessive crazies… but i would have picked the groom too

P.S. I still don’t give a shit if any of them can do pastry!!!

If you know that you can’t execute crispy chicken in a catering/buffet setting then why are you letting Andrew try it, Antonia?

Hmm… following Nikki’s lead? not what I’d do team! Definitely switching my loser prediction to Nikki, sorry chica

HATE that they have to stay up all night just to create artificial drama – so stupid!

just a reminder – Lisa’s dirty and Dale is self-righteous

i’m bored

haha, everyone looks really ugly and old in the cheffesionals in this ep… bad skin, bad hair… turns out staying up all night may be good for the drama (although that’s debatable) but it’s awful for a visual medium like television! I do NOT want to see these people lookin all gross and then have to look at food and think about how it tastes!

ok people, chillax, its just one night, man up

the top chef kitchen has got to be in the Warehouse District/West Loop

Tom looks really good in this ep! (maybe its just in comparison to the ragtag chefs…)

(have you noticed how much time i’ve spent writing notes about how everyone look? says something about the ep dontcha think? take note producers! i didn’t even realize it until i started typing up these notes!)

i swear Gail has worn that dress in another ep in another season!

Wow, could they make it more obvious that the Groom’s team is going to lose? come ON!

LOVE the clearly overdubbed crunching noises when the judges are eating the bruschetta

Blaze rocks at that carving station!

oh the judges are disappointed with the not-crispy chicken? well Antonia knew the chicken would suck so why don’t you ask HER why they’re serving it?

hmm… the groom’s mom is named Mary Ann Marchetti (or something like that)…. I wonder…. YES this couple getting married who “own a restaurant” together – they OWN Galleria Marchetti!!! luck ducks! I would LOVE to have a wedding reception there! HOT!!!

Oh get over it, choosing the bride wasn’t SO courageous! big effing deal…

Hold the G**damn phone!


um… okay… no comment (i hope they have something really good over at Amuse-Biatch about that!)

Lisa is much more tolerable when she’s exhausted

well, you really can make butternut squash filling too sweet – i’ve had it before at excellent restaurants

I totally ❤ Spike! Damn, Dale!
I can’t believe Lisa didn’t get in on that!
either she’s just really tired or she just didn’t care because she knows she’s safe after making a really good cake

good idea Gail – Ego Wars – take note for next season producers!

OMG did you just se Spike’s purple-checked Keds?!!! HOT

Well I called it again – Ciao bella Nikki!
