Top Chef All Star thoughts

Wow, brother Dale truly showed his prowess not only in the kitchen but also in his wargame strategies! I mean picking Marcel to be the opposing captain is probably the Top Chef all time best strategic move...ever...period. He knew no one would cooperate with him. The other team was doomed no matter who was on his team. It is sad that the only thing I remember about Dale from his original season is his temper. It is obvious that he did a lot of soul searching after seeing himself act like a douche on national TV. These days, his cooking is impressive and his temperament in control and confident. Well done Dale! Even though he wasn't the winner, he stood out most for me. Blais is such a whiny crybaby that it is hard to take him seriously. Also, I'm personally not drawn to his cooking style. Although his bromance with Fabio is very funny. Too bad it is Blais since we all know he will never measure up to Stefan. Nevertheless it is still very funny. I started following Fabio on twitter and he is just as funny. He plugs his ebook a little too much but its still very adorable because its Fabio. Also, his show recaps has me in stitches!
Well, you all know I am delighted and dancing about Marcel's elimination. All the other chef's have been so professional with their criticism, boiling it down to poor people skills. For me, it seems a spanking and a time out is in order!

Really Angelo, stop making crudo. Snore....

Did anyone see Tre? Was he even on the show? What happened to the "force in the kitchen"?

Did Marcel dye his hair? Why does it look so different?

wait, am i missing something, who is stefan? is it the short guy who got eliminated a few episodes back? why would blais not measure up to him?
i think blais rocks, but i think angelo and dale are going to be the stiffest competition for him, especially since dale seems to have gotten all his issues worked out and is stronger than ever. if those three stay on their A game, it will be those guys in the final. it will be awesome!!

Hi vtkitchen! Stefan is from the Vegas season 6 top chef and also the subject of fabio's affections. This is the original bromance! I agree that the three will make an exciting finale!!!

I was so glad to see Marcel gone too! I wish we could watch this together. We would have so much fun :-)

Hi Monet! I know, soooo much fun! I would totally organize a Top Chef pot luck night if we all lived in the same city! Hope Austin is having as lovely weather as we are here in LA!

So happy Marcel left! Don't knock Blais! I like him. With you all the way on Angelo and his crudo!?!

Ms Chef! Agree with you about Blais being excellent chef. Not so keen on personality tho.

Blaiz seems to have had a personality transplant with Andy Dick.
