Top Chef Finale

The finale of Top Chef Chicago just ended, and I think this is the first time that a Bravo contest show goes the way I want it to go. I usually feel like as soon as I take a liking to someone, they get cut. And in a couple of cases, the person I dislike the most ends up winning (Top Chef seasons 2 and 3, Project Runway the to most recent seasons).

I was a little disappointed in the twist in this episode. Last season it was "make another course" half an hour or so before the meal started, and this time it was "your sous chef isn't showing up." I realize that removing the sous chef doubles the work that they have to do (or cuts the opportunities), so it is probably harder to execute than the extra dish. But the drama just wasn't there, I was expecting something else. Though it is probably a good thing that they are allowing the chefs to really show what they are like with minimal interference, even if it is one of the few times that it happens throughout the season.

I wish the Tabasco Ice Cream for the oysters would have gotten made, I'm really curious what the judges would have said.

As for who won... I won't ruin it for the one person who I know is actually reading my blog but didn't see the show :)
