    I know we have a lot of Top Chef fans here, but is anyone else watching this? I missed the first episode or two, but the episode on right now features Giada and is basically a grilling episode. These recipes look really good.

    Oh, I am watching, and that dude forgetting to serve was painful to watch.

    I'm on it. My third year with the show.

    Dumping the hottest woman right up front, bad move.

    JAG wins this thing unless he takes a giant dump all over himself in the next few weeks. His only real competition is Adrien.

    And good move dumping Colombe. ("How do I know where to look for cinnamon? It's all alphabetical!")

    What's with the woman with the giant teeth? You can't have teeth like that on TV, not even on cable.

    And I liked Colombe's response when she went back to the crib after being dumped and someone said, "What did they say?'

    "That I have to leave."

    I could watch a show with Amy with no problem.

    But last night's show . . . coming up with an idea to serve fans at an NBA game . . . good god, one guy made meatball sandwiches and the meatballs were the size of a basketball. Try to eat that and you'd have sauce over half the people in your row.

    Back on topic after the Alton Brown segment ... this is the weakest final four I can recall from this series.

    And so much personal sidebar drama ... sheesh.

    I'm not sure any of these folks are worthy.

    The two permanent judges they have on there, Bob and Susie, are intolerable.

    If I remember right, they went hunting for food people, not TV people. To expect these fresh-off-the-street contestants to pick up TV-show performance immediately is just insane. Then to rip them for not doing so is even worse.

    The personal drama only makes the show more unwatchable. So I'll find something else on Sunday nights.

    I agree the two Food Network execs, Bob and Susie, are terrible.

    Jag or Amy should win, but all four finalists are irritating.

    Top Chef is much better, although the current season is the weakest out of three.

    The current season of Top Chef could show three consecutive weeks of chefs peeling potatoes and it wouldn't be as bad as last season's debacle where the two best cooks didn't make the finals.

    I think Amy wins. The other woman has the giant teeth, so no one wants her. Last year's winner was a man, so that works against Jag. Plus, they have the drama of Amy almost quitting to go home to her family, then rallying to win.
