yes carla. you are underestimated. let there be no doubt. i will continue to grant you your proper level of underestimation to the end, if nec.
yes, padma, they all know eric ripert.
ohhhhhhhh. i love it when they don't know how to filet fish. and there is always someone who doesn't.
wow. looks like crap even by carla's standards. her words, laura.
shut up leah. either give up or stop saying you give up.
flesh on the bones and bones in the flesh. bad combination.
awesome. eel. awesome. here, filet this squiggly thing,
oh! private lunch at le bern. no other shoe will drop there, i'm sure.
i guess these little intra-commercial outtake scenes are supposed to trick us into watching the commercials. how sly.
hmmm. they have selected six dishes. i wonder why six. hmmm. aren't there six contestants left? what a crazy coincidence. pay attention, folks.
alan just started hating jamie. she's bored with le bern.
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh! they will each have to reproduce one of the dishes. who saw that coming?
za'atar tip: not much. its crazy strong.
"the fish is ok." coming from eric ripert, that's a pretty big deal.
insight from hosea: "the fish is the crux of the dish." no kidding.
it's like a whole episode dedicated to constantly telling eric ripert what a genius he is.
well i guess this isn't the week that stefan falls on his face. i still think it will happen.
uh-oh. he's hosed-ea.
oh sheesh. it's going to be either jamie or hosea. i like them both.
ah, NOW leah has advice. thanks leah. now is real helpful.
well, that's a decent prize. hang out with eric ripert for a week? sign me up.
its like mea culpa chef. who can admit to the most screwups?
sounds like they hated jamie's the most. but it sounds like they want a reason to send leah home. but hosea screwed up the fish. i dunno.
i think it will be leah or jamie. so it will probably be hosea.
wow. i thought she was probably the best cook there. shame.
i forgot about team rainbow. i guess because i never really cared about team rainbow.
nice pause by jacques: "i could die ... happy."
bonus: richard blais' twitter just after watching the previews: "Top chef preview next week looks exactly like a dream I had. Jacques Pepin, Jesus, and Phil Hartman as Frankenstein are at judges table."
