I sat and thought about this. WHY does Hosea bug me so much? His food isn’t bad, per se. I mean, there was the Leah/girlfriend thing, which yeah, was bad. I think, really, though, it was his attitude, especially how he was gunning for Stefan the whole time. I mean GUNNING.
And yes, you could make a case that Stefan was gunning for him right back, but I think Stefan was just dishing it right back in a manner that amused him. Hosea was out for blood, whereas Stefan was just playing a game. He (and Fabio, really) had the attitude of “oh, well, I didn’t win, I’m still the best thing ever” and I truly don’t think he has any animosity towards Hosea. Whereas if Stefan had won, I think Hosea would be bitter for a looooong time.
Of course, it goes without saying that I am basing this on what the editors chose to show me. I’m saying it anyway.
I weep for Carla. Oh Carla Carla Carla. Some people blame Casey for Carla’s loss, but you can’t really. She was just there to help, and Carla was free to take or leave her suggestions re:the sous vide and the cheese soufflet. (I will suggest that the finale is not the time for trying a new technique, although maybe she was thinking how Hung won using sous vide practically every time.) My husband and I winced, however, when they showed Casey talking, none of the other sous chefs got any camera time whatsoever. Hmmm…you think that sous vide is going to be an issue later?? Maybe?? Then Marcel was talking about freezing the fish, and we just stared at each other - Hosea is going to win! Blaise hasn’t said a word!
Side notes: Gail saying Stefan’s dessert presentation was “so 1982″. Um. What? The 80’s had a specific way of plating? Are there pictures? Can I see? Also, her boobies were ginormous, I wonder if she’s pregnant. Ah, to start rumors. I love it.
The voodoo thing was hilarious. I couldn’t stop laughing.
Looking forward to the reunion show next week - my guess for fan favorite is, of course, Fabio. However I think Carla and Ariane have a good shot. See you next season!
