WTF did they really show some of the finalists in that trailer?  Right after the Europe part.

I believe they did. Pretty surprising group if so.

I'm choosing to believe it's not them.  I'd say disappointing group if so.

Fortunately I haven’t seen the trailer since I posted, so you kids don’t spoiler. My memory sucks.

Don't think they would be that sloppy.  I think just one of three standing there is a finalist and the other two are on that finalist's team.

The cleavage was spectacular.  Was really hoping it would have been the other one since she shouldn't even be on the show to begin with.  All Stars is brutal and no one is safe.

She is definitely benefiting from some home cooking, having been on the production staff after her appearance on season one.  Maybe this was a makeup for her having to go home with altitude sickness in Colorado?

That’s what I was thinking.

Damn, Floyd Cardoz passed away from the corona virus.  We just watched the episode of Ugly Delicious he was in.

Saw that.  Sucks.  He was a great chef and seemed like a super nice guy.

Little bit of a belly on Padma in the white dress. 

Kinda funny when she said she wanted a “dot” of something on the Indian food.

Won’t happen, but Angelo going home real early wouldn’t suck. 

My man.

really interested to see how some of those folks from the recent seasons do vs some of the older folks like Brian V (who has to be the betting favorite, right?)

 

read somewhere that Gregory Gourdet was 9/1 and Brian Voltaggio was 12/1

 

Spoiler

side note, I can't stand Jenn

Watching them eat at the restaurants was cool, but the elimination challenge was rather slow. 

This.  Also, Angelo made another crudo.  That's all he does.  I like him too, but c'mon man.

I've never liked Angelo.  He has always come across as a pretender to me.  I was expecting to hear Steph's name called instead, but was glad it went the other way.  If Malarkey, Lee Anne, and Lisa went next, it would not hurt my feelings.

Probably mentioned before, but the two biggest demolitions I ever saw on Iron Chef America were Curtis Stone & Angelo. Neither had a fucking chance in hell in that environment.

I can see that.  I think he's just an odd cat.  I was worried Eric was going to go.  I'd like to see him stick around a while.

Don't think this has been mentioned here, but Tom was asked fairly recently (2018 I think) who the best chef they ever had was and he said hands down it was Paul Qui.  Said they had to dumb the show down a bit for the viewers to not make it obvious that Paul was just completely dominating.

Didn’t he get himself into some trouble around then too? 

It was like a year after he won, IIRC.  But looking back on that, I kinda think it was a one-time occurrence, and not part of a pattern of behavior.  Too many drugs and a crazy girlfriend.  I feel bad that that is kind of his legacy.

They didn’t dumb it down enough then because I remember it seemed like he won every challenge every week.  Have never seen anybody dominate like he did on this show.

Nice of BMW to write them a big enough check to at least keep LCK commercial-free. 

So Angelo scrambled a couple eggs & opened a jar of caviar? Strong.
