    Zakarian isn't as much of a jerk when he's on Chopped, but this Super Chef competition has exposed him to the world. Girls? Really Geoff???

    Whee for Elizabeth Faulkner for pulling off the upset in that final challenge.

    I'm rooting for her or Anne.

    I think Alex lucked out with the "storytelling" part of the challenge, however. It didn't seem like the judges were very enamored of her dish. I get that was part of the "challenge," but I don't think that is something they really consider very much in actual "Iron Chef" judging.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I was sure would be "out" after her mishap in the kitchen.

    I thought he was an a** on the Chopped episodes where he was competing.

    Zakarian is my favorite judge on chopped. I really like him. However, I'm rooting for Anne.

    I'm rooting for Anne - big fan. She is my kind of cook, although it took me awhile to get use to her crude way of speaking.

    I did buy her cook book , a book to have if you are a fan.

    Me too--I the think Alex is relaxing a bit (she is so tense on this show) but was a bit surprised that she was not in the cook off. If I have to be honest Zakarian always makes these elegant little dishes that seem Iron Cheffy even if they don't exactly fit the theme. I remember his brunch at the ball park when he was in the bottom three and yet one of the judges said it was the best dish he had tasted. If you just go with the ingredient I think he is strong. But I want a woman to win dammit!

    It's a common view, even among chefs; so Zakarian's comment doesn't surprise me.
    True. How many times in these cooking comps have we seen savoury chefs break out in a cold sweat when they have to make desserts?

    I'd agree with that, but he's not as much of an asshat as a judge.

    I'm pulling for one of the women to win this. As much as I like Faulkner, I was surprised they took her over Samuelsson seeing as how he won Top Chef Masters. You could almost see that same argument cross his face when they told him he was out. "But...but! I won TCM!"

    But Faulkner shouldn't have been in the bottom to begin with. They all liked her dish. It wasn't even her story, it was the delivery. I'm pretty sure I've ranted about this before, but I'm going to do it again. I don't care about the tale. I'm way past the age for Story Time. I understand that you have to talk on a TV show, but I don't want made-up schlock all the time.

    It's not like you go to a restaurant and say, well I did think the lobster ravioli was overcooked, obviously frozen and the sauce tasted like Bourbon Street after Mardi Gras, but now that I know this recipe helped save Timmy in the well, it's my favorite dish EVER.

    I want Chiarello gone, like yesterday. Then Zakarian. Zakarian's such a hypocritical ass, especially given how he reams cheftestants on Chopped for not following his rules.

    I am glad that Chef Faulkner won the challenge! Amazed that Chef Chiarello made a good lobster and risotto in 25 minutes. But Guarnaschelli has the hardest job with that lamb!

    Bummed about Burrell going home. At this point, I really only want Chef Faulkner to win. If Guarnaschelli won that would be okay.

    Alex was always my favorite but it is clear the others see her as the weakest link of the four remaining chefs. Bummed about tonight's episode.....wanted to see the "girls" win.

    Judy Joo's obsession with Faulkner freaks me out.

    I was feeling the same with Michael Symone (sp?) and Zakarian.

    I really dislike Burrell so no complaints from me. I hate her dopey look, her stupid hair, and fugly ridiculous skirts. Her comment about Faulkner bring a pastry chef and not cooking real food shows off her attitude behind her phony aww shucks persona. Chef Guarnaschelli's response to Burrell's comment about Not liking the look of Faulkner's dish but hoping it tasted good not bring true last episode was spot on.

    I love Anne Burrell, but I thought it was perfectly clear, even before they announced who was going home, that Zakarian had the superior dish. No complaints from me. I hope either Falkner or Zakarian wins the whole thing.
