This is Jimbob Jones stepping in for Eyediosmio for the finale of The Taste. About the only thing ethnic about me is that first sentence, but don’t worry, I can fake it — I took 2 Spanish classes in high school, and can remember at LEAST half a dozen words, all of which I learned from the Taco Bell menu and some Hispanic friends who swear a lot.
After last week’s elimination of 14 contestants, this week we have the remaining 4. And, for a change, the series actually lives up to it’s name by having the winner determined with a completely blind tasting.
But that’s only after we have some not-so-surprising disturbing flirting between Ludo and Home-Cook Barbie, a highly surprising early elimination, some unexpected cattyness, and a less surprising winner. Even more surprising is that I went an entire episode without wanting to hurt Malarky, so call Ripley’s.
Stay tuned later this week when I can see if I can fill Eyediosmio’s shoes with my large feet. I’ve been practicing with my wife’s shoes — it isn’t going well.
Discuss the episode (without spoilers, or Nigella will cut a bitch!) And read Eyediosmio’s much funnier review of last week’s show, while weeping that you’ll have to put up with me for an entire recap. I hear that Tequila does wonders to dull the pain.
