Your thoughts? Come on! I CAN'T be the only one here! **** My thoughts: NO WAY!!!!! What was THAT???? I am a H-U-G-E Kevin fan! I nearly cried to realize he wouldn't win the night (in my mind - there might be a NIGHT "top Chef"...but he was the SEASON Top Chef!!!!). But then I thought...(with the judge's comments) SURELY it would be Brian. (Might I say now...I didn't like either of the brothers...or that they put them on there in the first place. It seemed TOO much about playing up the rivalry...which having had two kids who spout sibling rinalry ALL the time..I found it UGLY and a waste of my time to watch it!... But I started to think that... this whole season was aimed at the *tension* of having the Brother's stand up there at the end...one against the other. It's very typical of "Bravo Drama" and something i am enjoying LESS AND LESS! It makes the viewer feel...played!) SHOCKED that after the comments fromt he judges about the POORLY done cessert...and the "muschroom" formed out of mushroom pate. And just the general comments about other than one dish that needed more flavor...that Michael won over Brian. As for Michael through the season... he was about as rude as the OTHER Michael. So that was the winner? No Way!!!! The REAL winner was Kevin! I nearly cried as he slumped into his mom's arms at the end and she kissed his head. I think that kiss was felt/meant to be given by ALL his fans! Awwwww........ http://www.bravotv.com/top-chef/videos/kevin-ruined-his-chances Toby's comment that he is SURELY on the fast track to CULINARY SUPER-STARDOM...was spot on! I would definitely stop in Atlanta on some visit to go to his restaurant!!
