Top Chef: WTF (Again)

So this is the second year in a row that my final Top Chef posting of the season has been titled "WTF." I'm scratching my head wondering why Kevin won the competition. I don't believe he was the best chef contestant in the group but apparently he performed the best when it counted, in the finale! Whatever. No recap this week kiddos, just some random thoughts:

Pretty standard fare for the finale, create a four course meal with certain limitations on what can be prepared in each course. I liked that past winners of the competition were present to be sous chefs for the contestants. I guess they didn't have the budget to fly down the previous contestants from this season!

Kind of cool that Kevin is the first African American to win the competition.

Did anyone else get sick of the side story about Angelo being sick. He kept saying over and over how he didn't want to miss this opportunity by being sick. It just seemed to keep going on and on, blah blah blah.

So a lackluster season of Top Chef comes to an end. While the show did improve somewhat near the end, it wasn't enough to salvage the season! I think season 6 is my overall favorite of the series.

Ed is a dick in the kitchen.

Did anyone watch Top Chef: Just Desserts? It was actually fun and entertaining. Are there any straight guys in the competition? Half the time one of the guys spoke a purse would fall out of his mouth! I think I'll continue to watch and maybe even blog about it. I like Gail Simmons, she seems to be a nicer host than Padma and it looks like the show may have a lot of drama, always fun to watch. Also, it looks like we may already have a villain, Morgan.

So that's it, the end of another season of Top Chef. Thanks for reading everyone. Hopefully next season in the series will be much improved.

Ugh. I didn't like Kevin at all. Well, to be honest, I didn't much care for any of the final 3. But I was pulling for Ed out of all of them. I didn't watch the finale and knowing he won and Angelo was a wimp, I don't think I will watch.
