Antonia Lofaso: Wilo Weep for Me

i really like her and her food and would have liked to see her compete for the finale, but i suppose drama and ratings take precedence over seeing great chefs make great food.

i love how she passed up shaking Gail's hand and both Tom and Gail glanced at each other in confusion.

Sick to my stomach that Antonia didn't make the final three. She deserved it. Missed the hand shaking incident and I watched it twice. She was probably in shock...as I was.

How in the world did Antonia go home for undercooked beans, when Lisa wasn't sent home for undercooked rice...TWICE!?!

What makes me angry is that the judges clearly said Antonia's dishes all tasted good, but they didn't like the fact that she plated all three together. Tom said the undercooked beans were the "fatal flaw" and that's when my heart sank and I knew Antonia was going home. I was so mad I was tempted to break my TV. I couldn't bear to watch.

In a weird, conflicting contrast, they downgraded Lisa's dishes, saying she paid more attention to the garnishes than the flavor. But even though they said her food tasted worse than Antonia's, and made fun of her for her elaborate garnishes, in the end they kept her because it looked "prettier" than Antonia's. WTF? Antonia served honest, humble food that they freely admitted tasted good. But she goes home for that and stinky fishface stays? And then she has the nerve to pop Stephanie and Richard for not falling all over her with joy when she's been nothing but a bitch to both of them all season?

I am so sad. I was truly hoping Antonia would win. Knowing the way Bravo operates, I am now really scared that Lisa is going to win, just the same way they pushed that vile Jeffrey guy as the winner on Project Runway 3. That hasn't worked out so well, has it?

When are these reality producers going to realize they end up with far worse results when they keep messing with things and pushing forward undeserving contestants for their drama value even though they should really be sent home? Viewers don't like it, and in the end, I think it drives a lot of them away and hurts a show's chance for renewal.

I really don't think there was any directors messing with the results. Sometimes reality sucks, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that reality shows have sad results as well.

It was rigged! Lisa should have gone home, but Antonia is not a drama queen so meano Lisa stays.

You need to watch the video of Tom explaining how Antonia blew it. When the guests don't eat your food, you know you've got a problem.
