    Is anyone watching the new show? They are doing men v women this year and it sure does seem like they stacked the deck for the women. I don't know that any of the guys were any good, but several of the women are. Some strange choices this year!

    I watched the show for the first time tonight. (I did watch it some last season.) I can't figure out why those people put up with the abuse by that Chef!?

    I watched it last season a little and thought the chef was a real phony. I thought they could have got someone better so I doubt I'll watch it this season.

    I was afraid that I wouldn't get into it this year- but I watched it last night. Really liked it :)

    The chef is no phony. He is a successful chef. And he really is that way, well maybe not quite as bad as he seems. He was comparatively polite to the host on a late night show this recently.

    I think the producers go out of their way to select candidates who have significant problems and a couple of good ones who are likely to win.

    Frankly, I wouldn't trust my restaurant to any of the candidates...

    But it is an entertaining show.

    Ok, I missed it again, of course. The recap makes it sound like Virginia was seriously flirting with the chef. Was it really that over the top? I was really glad to see Sara go, though!

    She was not doing a whole lot of flirting with Chef Ramsey..........but she sure was flirting a lot with the construction workers on the challenge they were given. I am positive that it had something to do with her winning the challenge, what do you think? I would never eat at a place that Keith guy works at he is just nasty looking. I am thrilled that Sara got voted off she was a real pain in the you know what.

    My vote is for Heather! I agree about Keith...kinda icky, but he seems to be a pretty good chef! I'm really, REALLY tired of Virginia and ready for her to be sent packing. Sara, although the Omarosa of the group, kind of tickled me. IMO, it's Heather all the way!

    I like Keith. He may be K-Greas(y), but he's the most put together, consistent person.

    I find it painful to listen to Virginia. IMHO she is way too immature to run a restaurant and I hope she gets kicked off next week. I actually think Keith aka K-Grease is very talented. Heather is as well, but from what I see Keith is more consistent and I am rooting for him to win.

    I knew Heather would be in finals, but the other one really surprised me. (Don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet). It was an interesting show tonight!

    I was kind of bummed to see "K-Grease" get kicked off....however I agree w/Chef Ramsey, he still needs to mature a bit. I'm sure he will go a long way in his career though. At this point I'm rooting for Heather, but I will be curious to see how both her and Virginia do in the final.

    I think the biggest thing with me for Keith was his appearance. I'm a sloppy cook, but it was really disgusting to see how filthy he could get. Those vacant stares got to me, too. I am amazed that Virginia can do so well with actual cooking and recipes (challenges) but can't handle the kitchen. She's a salad chef, wouldn't the vegetable station be old hand to her? I've liked her less and less as the show has gone on. Heather is a natural, but a little too...tightly wound, in my opinion.

    ChristyF: I agree w/you about Keith. He needs to "tidy up" a bit and I think he will go far. Virginia annoys the heck out of me. She may know how to cook but she does not speak professionally and acts like a little spoiled brat. I agree, Heather needs to switch to decaf, but I think she could be it!

    I love this show. :) It's really the only thing I'm watching on TV now, minus the news. I'm rooting for Heather to win.
