Tidbits for the Womenfolk of Christendom

Apropos of absolutely nothing, possums, we start off with the following infamous quote from literary theorist Sigmund Freud:

"The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is 'What does a woman want?'"

Now, on to business:

* Eater's Ben Leventhal is sponsoring a contest to win a date with Sam Talbot, and getting called "douchey" for his pains.

* Tre Wilcox--the man who worked out obsessively during the show, whose first words to the other cheftestants after being eliminated were that he was going back to the gym early, who seemed to live in wife beaters, and who said, during the Roach Coach challenge, that once people got a look at his "guns," they would want to bypass Brian Malarkey's facile charms and get in the back with him--is telling New York Magazine, "I didn’t really think that people would see me on TV and think that I looked good." Such disingenuousness is as hard to swallow as that cured salmon apparently was.

According to Raggaydy Andy, Tre says "that it's hard being married with all the attention he's getting." However, Tre clarifies in New York Magazine, "I don’t expect to be divorcing my wife and running off with a Top Chef fan anytime soon." (emphasis added by us.) Does this mean there's hope for the patient homewrecker/Top Chef fan?

meh, sam doesn't really do it for this straight, pictures of Brian, maybe? or just skip top chef altogether and go straight for Rufus Wainwright?

the sam picture with the peppermill is overdetermined and happily poised just above that quote from freud - great placement!

What about straight girls who prefer Tom Colicchio? Can we have an ursine nickname?

Dear Anonymous 6:40 AM,

But of course, possum. Consider yourself an official Amuse-Biatch Goldilocks.

another straight girl here, i think neither sam nor tom is attractive. brian's not bad in a nerdy way, especially when he wears the little blue and grey suit. i think tre's face is ugly and i don't like wifebeaters or guys who work out (i'm serious), but i wish he were still on the show. i can't think of a cute male contestant.
