Actually, once he decided to go with it, he then ignored everything Mae said and just said, “If we make a good one, it’ll be fine.” I knew they were doomed. He had a total lack of ambition and that’s not how you win Top Chef. If they just wanted a Scotch Egg, they’d go buy one.

R29, I felt bad for Mae, not Dale -- Mae was the one who wanted to do something more exciting with their "Scotch egg" assignment, but Dale was the one who did the steamrolling in terms of concept. I thought he actually came off pretty poorly in this episode. R31 is right -- what's the point of being on Top Chef just making a really good Scotch egg? It's not a Great British Bake-off technical challenge.

I wonder if Dawn was a consolation contestant this season. I read/saw an article where Kristen Kish turned it down. She said she never wanted to be a TC contestant or winner. However, she does seem happy to judge occasionally. She's doing a travel food show on NatGeo called Restaurants of the World or something like that.

They could have brought back the bald-headed German guy from her season or the Seattle season (can't remember exactly). He was the guy who kept hitting on Kristin even though she's a lesbian.

by Anonymousreply 41March 28, 2023 1:17 PM

Kristen (or Melissa, natch) would have been fun to see again, but I totally understand why she'd decline. She did her time, she won, and she's had a successful career since... so, why go through it again? Why would any previous winner bother?

My guess is that the international TC winners competing this season may be doing so as a way to build broader exposure for themselves, especially in the U.S., as a precursor to opening a stateside (or elsewhere outside their home nation) restaurant.

I actually enjoyed this show for years. But I've never been able to stomach Padma Lakshmi. Even more, I REALLY can't stand fellow West Virginia native Katie Lee, who "presented" the show for a season before her.

Yeah, Tom seems a bit enchanted by Gabri. But for some reason he reminds me of that old internet meme: "Gay or European." Obviously he can be both. But I also remember that German or Austrian contestant who seemed to lust after one of the lesbian chefs in his season. It seemed like a closet case thing, so if Tom is gay, he and Gabri would make a cute looking couple.

Speaking of, Samuel Albert (first eliminated chef) has an instagram showing a wedding photo and his I think now pregnant wife. So...probably not gay?

r53, I got the same sort of idea about Charbel but without a spouse or S.O. identified as such in his social media I don't know what to think.

I mean, he willingly moved back to the middle east after having lived in the U.S. I wouldn't do that if I were gay, but who knows?

"Michael Voltaggio should have represented the US.

He's the best Top Chef winner from this country, and realistically, the only deserving one."

The other Voltaggio returned for an All Stars season, and I think Michael may have been a guest judge a couple of times.

At some point, there's really no reason for these people to come back because this is the only reality series where winning can really boost your career.

Even placing well helps.

Of course, a couple of the male chefs have gotten into some legal troubles. There was one asshole who got #metoo'd like Mario Batali. Then there was that creep from the Top Chef dessert series who was arrested for child porn and/or molestation. He was the one who always cried during the confessionals because he missed his son so much. Unfortunately, he was abusing his son.

I was tyring to find the name for the first guy, and found out yet another Top Chef winner was fired for harassment. It was Gabe Erales who won season 18.

The first one was Mike Isabella who I always thought was an asshole.

Then I found Ming Tsai joked that he roofied a female WHO WAS INTERVIEWING HIM AT THE TIME.

I feel like they've really come up with unique challenges that are also doable. I hate challenges that are so hard you don't get to see the actual talent of the chefs (Project Runway does this all the time!). I don't want to watch chef's struggle because of time or budget. I want to watch them be amazing. I want to see the very best being the very best.

I'm fully aware others, for the sake of good TV, want that struggle! And that's totally valid. I think this season has straddled that line very effectively.

See also: his temper tantrum in the kitchen a while later. In this episode, he behaved like a stereotypical self-absorbed "artiste" chef, who'd be a terror to staff and underlings if he believed any element of his "vision" was being neglected.

Everyone else left in the competition seems pretty happy and easygoing, which only made his behaviour/attitude stand out (in a bad way) even more for me. He's the only contestant I'm rooting *against* (sorry, Tom fans!).

So in LCK, Charvel and Sara had to improve upon one dish they failed at, make one dish they ate in the UK that they absolutely loved, and then the final dish is something that signifies where their career is headed in the future.

All in 60 minutes. Drama!

So naturally, they got to use 2 of the 5 eliminated chefs from LCK as sous chefs.

Also naturally, that meant the black chef wasn't chosen (rofl).

Sara chose the two women, and Charvel chose the two guys. Victoire was left over, so she got to be a judge.

I forgot what Sara's "improved dish was," but she made fish and chips for her UK dish, and she made something "global" for her future dish, because she said she wanted to incorporate more international inspiration into her Southern cooking.

I also forgot what Charvel made.

I was drinking wine when I watched the five episodes in a row, so I was kind of blitzed by this LCK final episode.

But in any case, Tom chose Sara for the win.

I know what Buddha's restaurant will be like. Great, tech bros will love it and spend spend spend. Tricks and flash. I think I'd have a better meal and experience at Sarah's place and hope to get there at some point.

Buddha was clearly the best chef, but it was hard not to root for Gabri.

He's got pluck. And I bet a willing ass.

With Parma going the next season chefs can cook Indian food without a worry.

Parma? I mean Padma but it’s a good typo

I sort of got femme top vibes from Gabri.

I think we know Gabri is a willing, sleazy bottom.

R280, is that why he and Tom are such good unexpected "friends?"

by Anonymousreply 281June 12, 2023 4:23 PM

100%, R280. The boy likes it big and likes it rough.

I bet Tom throws a mean fuck and talks dirty in German.

Plot twist: Tom is actually GermanGayGuy and that's why that account has gone silent these past months 😂

And Gail is Cheryl.

That was another pretty great season. Here's hoping the producers keep the streak going.

Unsurprising that Buddha won, given his edit all season + all his wins. I was happy to see that I correctly predicted two of the three finalists back at R153 and, for a fleeting moment during the finale, thought there might actually be an upset win with Sara taking the title.

This was the best season in a LONG time (although I could still do without the movie and product-placement tie-ins -- does the show really need that money?). What do we think of Carla Hall as a replacement for Padma?

by Anonymousreply 287June 15, 2023 9:07 PM

r287, she would be perfect.

by Anonymousreply 288June 15, 2023 9:13 PM

R287 YES a thousand times YES

by Anonymousreply 289June 15, 2023 9:31 PM

Carla’s best in small doses.

by Anonymousreply 290June 15, 2023 9:50 PM

Padma's natural replacement is (and will be) Gail.

Love Carla Hall, but her energy is not right for this show.

She’s best on the light Food Network competition shows (Spring/Halloween/Holiday) Baking Championship.

Alison Roman would be a good replacement for Padma.

Hopefully Buddha will buy some humility with that 250K.

Kristin Kish for host? (I don't mind Gail as a judge, but nearly every time she talks I feel like she's being fed her lines through an earpiece.)

by Anonymousreply 295June 16, 2023 6:22 PM

I nominate ISABELLA ROSSELLINI to take Padma's host/judge role!

by Anonymousreply 296June 17, 2023 9:01 PM

As if.

by Anonymousreply 297June 17, 2023 9:16 PM

Chef Boyardee and Aunt Jemima as cohosts.

I love the diversity!
