The Penultimate Chef

Filed under: Not Tech, Top Chef, TV — Chris @ 4:38 am

Wow, I thought Sam was going to take it. Marcel really stepped up and cooked this week. And Elia took a nose dive, from sweet and talented to just another bully to clawing desperately on her way out. What is wrong with her? And what is wrong with Ilan? Which do you think is more debilitating: Ilan’s inability to sac up and just pretend Marcel doesn’t exist, or Ilan’s inability to cook anything that doesn’t contain saffron?

P.S. There goes the prevailing Internet theory that the timeline manipulation (and ex post Elia-cropping) in the last episode was meant to whitewash Elia’s involvement in the whole affair because she was the winner… What’s the deal, Bravo? Because, if Ilan wins, none of your editing did anything to make him look any less like a quivering sack of shit… And it’s got all the Internets confused and paranoid…



  1. Apparently Padma is the penultimate pot head. No pun intended.

  2. Padma’s indiscretions are the least of my Top Chef concerns right now… I’ve never been a hater. I liked the fire she showed at Judge’s Table this week, going to bat for enzymatic cooking and telling Elia/Ilan to STFU.

  3. Hi doppelganger, thought I would drop by to see how you were doing. I watch Top Chef too. Hm.

  4. No way dude, did you see the finale? Padma totally wants to sleep with Ilan. Aaron and I think that the lady judges have a big crush on him.

    Why? I have no idea. The J. Lo diamond studs don’t do anything for me.


    *Marcel should have won. Hands down.

  5. Oh, come on. Do you think Salman Rushdie’s pot-head wife would have anything to do with that twerp? Perhaps you missed the interview where he talked smack about her?
