Top Chef All Stars thoughts

Ok now. You just can't mess with Chinese people and their dim sum! Getting really bad dim sum while starving from waiting forever was NOT a good situation. I was surprised there wasn't a mutiny. The diners must have been invited and comped is all I can guess. It was a disaster of epic proportions and the judge's blogs say the show didn't look as bad as it really was. All I can say is if the cookNgs were there, we would have been in that kitchen way before Tom decided to go check. You know, get things in order! There would have at least been some decent fung jow from Casey's stash! I was sad to see Casey go because she actually could cook and had a decent personality. Boy did that Jaime dodge another bullet. Bye bye next week? We can only hope since this is Top Chef, not Top Scallop.


Was Angelo always that tall? Angelo, really, don't make a raw dish.

The quicker quickfire was lame. Tom gets to decide which dishes measured up to his own?
How arbitrary is that?

The anger management is wearing off. Dale is definitely starting to simmer. I'm getting a little nervous.

Jamie better be out next week. She's really embarrassing this season, and definitely should have been out of there instead of Casey. I can't believe Casey's gone. They didn't even consider (at least on camera) the fact that Antonia cooked her dish the wrong way!

I believe it was Casey that said " always be in charge of your own dish"inthe previous episode and because she stepped up on volunteering on the food carts she lost... not fair at all.. well chicken feet are a bit of a work, she should had let Jamie do the carts.
lamie jamie gotz to go!
It's getting deliciously hot in the kitchen....yup Dale is definitely simmering..

That was so fitting that Casey went out that way! After two finalist lost with her ‘help’….
