"Ah yes....simple scallops! We dive for them in Maine.....in Winter."

Last night I was looking around for piano wire, plastic explosive, arsenic...ANYTHING that could have given me a moment's relief from the limp sausage that this season of Top Chef has become.

While I actually enjoy that these contestants get along fairly well, and aren't sneaking around in the middle of the night trying to give each other haircuts, I don't enjoy that none of them seems to be able to cook consistently well or come up with any sort of dish that I would ever put in my mouth.

There is no stand-out this year, no one I am betting on to be a sure-fire winner like Harold from Season One or Stephanie or Richard from last year.

Ya-a-w-wn! Ah, here's some piano wire. Excuse me while I go hang myself. Oh, wait! I guess I could just stop watching the show.

Worst bunch of Top Chef contestants...ever.

Show seemed lame-ass indeed, but I thought some of the dishes (Hosea's, Radhika's, Stefan's) sounded like they'd be good. Hate the whole "let's pretend it's Christmas" thing.

Amen. I'm boycotting the show. Possibly until the finals. Maybe forever. LAME LAME LAME.

Now what kind of attitude is that? You guys are supposed to bitch in a deliciously catty way, not sulk silently. What would Joan Crawford say to that, huh?

Ms. Crawford would say:
"Fat Cat can't find the piano wire, fashion something for her out of wire hangars...pronto!"

Agreed. Insipid.

Ay Carlitos, you're such a Grinch! It absolutely warmed my heart to see Stefan help Hosea and Radhika in their time of need. And did you see him comforting Ariane in the stew room after Tom called her dish out when he said he wasn't going to call anyone out? (Tangent: that was really shitty, by the way. "I'm not saying anyone specifically sucked but Ariane, your dish is the suckiest dish that ever sucked." Que. desgraciado.) Seeing the softer side of Eurobitch *is* good television. Is too, is too, is too! ^_^

Doesn't it seem like a HUGE coicidence that this was the holiday episode and it was all about caring and sharing when food was ruined in the fridge? How does one not shut the door to the fridge all the way and it goes completely unnoticed by all the people in that kitchen? After reading about Jaime and the scallops I'm suspicious about everything on the show now!

Who the hell makes deviled eggs on Top Chef and gets away with it. On top of that, she wins the quickfire with cauliflower puree and grilled Filet as her one pot dish....simply retarded. I will officially stop watching.

This show smells worse than the faux cooler crisis…

Back from vaca, I was hoping to see if the arrogant, political, production save the season from the past snoozers. Fortunately, I was reassured that valuable TIVO space was wasted on this contrived LAME spectacle. So sad, the show was awesome in the early days…Who's worse: the hammered judges or the lame ass cooks? (no one has earned chef).

First, Martha, true genius - get real on polenta...i’ll bet it was the winner. You picked cauliflower puree? How do you char filet in the same pot? That's a rookie dish - and there were so many: beef and gorg, deviled eggs, slimy scallops? Mangia's food is better. Here’s an idea: For God's sake ban the last 'rainbow' from using scallops - is that the only thing she cooks?

In some ways I don’t blame the judges mean spiritedness – these cooks are bad. But, save us from the hypocrisy – and faux drama. The producers couldn't give a golden pineapple about Christmas. The Harlem Choir was totally lame (and so off key). amFAR was so predictable. Why not take a chance with ALS or Breast Cancer....? What's next?

Send home Colicchio, Lakshmi, Collins and Bernstein. Foodies should boycott this show and prevent it from diluting the palates of the public....Avoid.
