Lauren is our final girl to get grilled. And hoo boy! Does she ever. She tells the judges, “well I figured I’m immune so I’d just try something out.” Nigella’s eyes pop out of her head at that one. Then, she says the only shepherd’s pie she’s ever had was out of a freezer! Oh dear. Nigella tells her that you can’t just throw cheese on top of something to make it better, it is the equivilent of drowning something in ketchup. Yikes.
And apparently Lauren and I share something in common, which is the crying. Although to be perfectly honest, she even SMILES WHEN SHE CRIES! The hell is THAT about?! Seriously, a pretty crier?
I think someone should take some notes on that particular talent, right?
Okay so the first person to get the boot is Micah. Poor guy. Did you know he quit his job for this? Anyway, Malarkey sends him out with the following: “It’s not that your dish was horrible, it’s that this is not the time for you here.” Wow, that was kind of an awful thing to say. Yeesh!
But it’s all good, he bids everyone farewell and says that without a great risk, there’s no reward and he’s going to find that reward. Good on you, buddy. And it is true, he beat out a lot of professional chefs to get there, so he has those bragging rights.
Moving on, who will our next contestant to get the boot be? If you called Renatta, the home chef, you called it right. Nigella give her a sweet hug and a kiss, than sang her a song and they flew a kite. It’s all very sweet and would you believe that Renatta is laughing and smiling on her way out? She says that this is an experience of a lifetime and she’s grateful for it.
Damn. THAT is a class act. Everybody is behaving so nicely, save one. I think that’s why Diane’s bad attitude rubs me the wrong way, because in contrast she’s really awful. But when you think about it, her antics wouldn’t be so out of place on Top Chef. Hmmmmm, food for thought.
Ludo tells Shawn that if he is on the chopping block again, he’s voting for him to go. Ouch! He tells him he’s better than that and expects more from him. Then he winks at him. Hee!
le wink wink
So that’s it everyone, what did you think of the first competition round? Is Diane as awful as I think she is (YES!), is Sarah really a ditz or crafty like a fox (true blonde) and will Ludo and Malarkey yell at each other next week (YES!).
