Recap: 'Top Chef' - 'BBQ Pit Wars'
So, we're down to just nine chefs, but that doesn't mean we're going to be low on tension, interpersonal conflict and really dumb moves in the kitchen. I would have hoped that at this point we wouldn't be seeing the kind of mistakes usually associated with "Hell's Kitchen" (Too salty! Overcooked! Undercooked!), but then, the chefs on "Hell's Kitchen" never have to cook for hundreds of people in insane Texas heat. The fact that we haven't had more chefs passing out, throwing up and/or getting speedy trips to the hospital is really a surprise, honestly.
But before we can get to who melted down and why, we have to deal with last week's elimination of Heather. Edward points out that he let her borrow recipes on more than one occasion, and Beverly seems pretty thrilled that the Wicked Witch has gotten the boot. But Sarah is FURIOUS that Edward would speak ill of the dead, or at least the eliminated. That's just proof that he is not to be trusted! Really? I thought this was the time to gossip a little, especially since the person who got sent home was such a raging bitch to everyone. But Sarah is standing by her Heather, which makes me suddenly like Sarah a whole lot less.
