    LOL I think Fabio is hilarious. I can do without Stephan. He just irritates me. I think Ariane is surprising a lot of people. Who do you think will go home tonight?

    I'm a fan of Ariane. I didn't like her at first, but she has totally blown everyone out of the water!

    Jeff is a cutie!

    I don't like Jamie. She's always so whiny about not winning the quick fire challenges. In the preview for tonight's ep, it's so hilarious when Fabio complains about how Jaimie constantly makes dishes with scallops. He said, "It's not Top Scallops!" Ha ha!

    There's the new temp judge tonight too!

    :lol: I didn't see the previews but I'm sure it will be a good episode. I agree, Jamie is whiney. I think Melissa is on her way out.

    I love it! I wish I knew someone around here liked it as much as I do so we could have recipe wars with recipes from the show :2up:

    I think Melissa or Carla will go tonight, but one really never knows with this show! Someone could totally blow it tonight!

    I like Ariane, too. Fabio's restaurant is just a couple of towns over from me - I've never been there, but some of my colleagues have.

    I love Top Chef too! I've been watching from the beginning. I'm totally loving Fabio, just because he is such a narcissist! (sp?) I like Ariane too, I'm glad she is doing better than she started. The more I see of her, the more I like her down to earth qualities!

    I'm excited for tonight's episode...it hasn't been on for a couple weeks now and I'm hoping they all step up their game a bit like they were warned about in the last episode! I can't believe Ariane made deviled eggs. They all made really simple stuff, which simplicity is a quality of a great chef, but not that much simplicity!

    If they would just stop giving them all of those "cutesy" themes, they might step it back up. I'm so tired of all the silly themes...let's just see some cooking! KWIM?

    love it! I am a bravo tv watching fiend. I have watched all the seasons. It started coming on after Project Runway, which I am completely addicted to. And I really am not into fashion and nor can I cook! Good times, and the new guy.. he is definately British, my husband is from england, and you have to have a tough skin with the british. They are a no messing about just tell it how it is people! lol

    I'm a big fan too, though right now I'm not staying up till 11 to watch it.

    I'll wait until next Wednesday and catch the old show at 9. I'l be a few weeks behind, but what can you do?

    Yeah, they really needed to go. I don't know how some of them even got picked to be on the show in the first place. I don't want to be mean but Carla reminds me of Sideshow Bob :lol:

    I kinda like Carla, I'm not sure why. Have you seen her when she straightens her hair? She looks really skinny and different. I cannot wait until Jamie goes home. I think she whines way too much and is conceited. I doubt that she is as great a chef as she thinks she is. I was not surprised who was sent home though. I like Ariane a lot too. I told my sister, as long as Jamie or Stefan doesn't win I will be ok. :lol:

    I like Carla too, but she is a bit comedic in appearance. I can't stand Jaimie too!

    I can't believe Jaimie finally won a challenge. She annoys me. Stefan is too full of himself. I like when that judge said the fish tacos tasted like cat food LOL I hate seafood so I think it all tastes like catfood.

    I think the right people went home. Carla's amusing so they'll probably keep her for a while even if she deserves to go home, that's just my thought. Let's face it, entertainment value for the audience is going to keep you on a reality show for a longer time than if you're not that interesting. I hope she follows through and goes against the grain and makes a totally vegetarian meal next time like she said she would.
