Top five! This season has flown by. Although the challenges have gotten progressively weirder, I can”t say this is my favorite season ever. All the chefs are fairly likeable, but there”s neither a sense of fun or feisty competitiveness. It”s like watching line chefs go through the paces at a very slow five star restaurant. It gets done, there might be a little stress, but mostly it”s entirely pleasant and somewhat boring. Floyd, of course, has a competitive spirit, but I would call it less feisty and more “I think I”ll slip ground glass into your pudding.” I”m just saying, I don”t think we”ve seen his dark side yet.
