I am so looking forward to the Top Chef recap. It’s been one of the worst mental health days ever. I just need to watch a bunch of people cooking fancy food. Also, Master Chef Junior premieres at the same time! I may end up recapping that too. Because, I love Master Chef Junior! I thought I recapped Master Chef Junior before but a site search shows nothing! It is such a cute show. So, no time like the present to start I guess. Suddenly, Thursday nights are very busy at Chez TT.
IT’S An ASIAN ELIMINATION!
I don’t know WTF is wrong with me today but I missed the start of this show and am half an hour behind! I have a lot of emails going on. Sorry. Let’s get to it. My brain is mush. We begin with a chef calling home to her man and doubting herself. I’m sorry I don’t know who she is. Why do women always underestimate themselves and the men are all super confident? Season three winner, Hung Huynh, the first Asian to win Top Chef. It’s an Asian challenge. There is no quickfire. It’s just an elimination challenge. They draw knives to determine what kind of Asian food they get. Thank God it is not a team challenge. However, they got cuisine that is unfamiliar to them. One is Indian which sucks if you are cooking for Padma.
However, they get lessons on all the Asian food they are assigned to. Sorry. Just had a long talk with my friend that I missed contact with the other night. It is such a surreal nightmare she is living with. Let’s just say that things like this should not be happening in the United States. But, let’s get back to the recap. Damarr is thrilled that Japanese people eat fried chicken. Meanwhile, Jackson is struggling because he can’t taste or smell anything.
Off To The Asian Markets
There is no Whole Foods this week it is all Asian Markets. I am drunk. I could not stop drinking on my phone call. It is the most bizarre crisis anyone has ever been in. I just can’t believe it is happening. I’m really trying to focus. But, damn. Things are happening in the United States that should not be. That is all I have to say about that. Other than my heart is not in this recap right now. Sam left his potatoes on the stove. Oh NOE!
Everyone is worried about their Asian dishes. I’m sort of checked out on this episode for many reasons. I’m so sorry. It was a difficult day for a lot of us today. The judges like everything so far. But Robert may be in trouble. And also BUDDA? I love Budda! Jesus they are also down on Monique! And Jo! WTF! Again they love Damarr like we all do. Meanwhile, Banjo had a bad dream or something. When it rains it pours. They also don’t like Sam’s dish. They like Jackson’s spring roll. Then at the end they act like they loved everything. I’m confused. Jae won and got $10K!
On the bottom is Budda, Ashleigh and Sam! Are they on crack? None of these should go home! At least Budda will likely stay because of the Tom Colicchio vagicide. Sam went home for a raw grilled potato. I’ll miss Sam. Hopefully he will come back in Last Chance Kitchen.
Here are the Last Chance Kitchens for the last two weeks.
