Top BLEEPING Chef tonight  
I know I haven't shared my thoughts at all about this season recently so no one really knows how I feel about any of the contestants, so my subject line is not a spoiler, fear not ...

... unless you know me well enough to know that I, like almost everyone else watching Top Chef this season, CAN NOT FUCKING STAND LISA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MY GOD!!! She made top three?!?!? She actually made top three!?!?!? Give me a break. A big, fat, enormous, huge, gigantic fucking break!!!!!! (What can I say the profanity of the season has gotten to me.)


I know she won't win (GOD, she better not win!!!!!!!!!), but if she did ... she would actually give Ilan -- yes, ILAN!!! -- a run for his money for worst winner ever. As it is, she's beats Tiffani handily down, in my opinion, as worst chef to make top three over all. At least that bitch could cook and wasn't in the bottom almost every challenge. I'm sorry, but after this I don't buy for one frickin' second that the judges take into account the whole season as they've maintained because there is no way that Antonia with her multiple wins and Lisa with her multiple bottom three/two placements should have gone before fucking Lisa!!!!!!!!!!

Guess what, bitch? The wrong person DID go home.

I'm rooting for Stephanie to win -- I've liked her from day one, but honestly I like Richard too (and hey, he's from Atlanta!! And my co-worker's boyfriend's mom is his housekeeper!!). Right now, it's really all about ANYONE BUT LISA.

ETA: Just wrote this in response to harper47 and I wanted to add it here:

I honestly think the producers stepped in and nudged with the thought that neither Lisa NOR Antonia really have a chance against Stephanie and Richard, so might as well go for the "dramatic" one. Ugh.

Ugh, ITA. I'm most heartbroken about my Penguins losing, but Antonia was my favorite and I've always thought Lisa was a giant fucking whiny horrendous bitch.

LIsa is just so thoroughly, completely unlikable. She just really, really, REALLY is.

So apparently 91% of the viewers, according to their text poll, thought Lisa should be sent home. Man, if she wins, this show might as well pack ITS knives and go home. What a bitch with her defensive postures at judges' table and her whining that the others were too stunned to say "Congratulations" to her.

I thought I read that the judges just judge on that challenge, not overall....

Stephanie better win or I'll be cranky, is all I can say. Richard's fine, but I want Stephanie to win.

I was hoping it would be at least 60% wanting Lisa going home. When I saw that 91%, I was like DAYUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I read that they do take it mostly on THAT challenge, but that do they think of overall a bit. And, my problem is that if you just base it on THIS challenge, they flat-out said that Antonia's food was good. While Lisa had some good stuff too, she also had stuff that flat-out didn't work. So on ANY account, it should have been Lisa.

You know, I even saw the little blurb about Judges making decisions in conjunction with producers this time and I think they meant everyone to see it because there is no one (obviously) watching this show who thinks Lisa should still be on it. I wasn't a big fan of Antonia but Lisa?

Lisa is a complete bottom dweller. And applause, applause to Richard and Stephanie who showed class and perception when they just sat in stunned silence to see Lisa still there and then Stephanie saying Congratulations with absolutely nothing in her vocals or facial expression that meant it.

Stephanie or Richard for the win. Hopefully Lisa will spectacularly crash and burn. Ugh!

Stephanie's "Congratulations" was a thing of beauty. It was so OHMYGODICANTBELIEVESHESTILLHERE emotion behind every syllable. Seriously.

Please let her crash and burn. CRASH AND BURN!!!!!!!!!!!

I read part of your entry (didn't click on the cut) before I watched the episode and I thought your reaction was about Stephanie getting the cut. I got more and more nervous as the episode went on because of the screwup with the pork belly. Thank God she's still there.

Lisa: what else is there left to say? Seriously, wtf is she still doing there? She's a so-so chef compared to Richard and Stephanie, she has a bad attitude, etc. I wanted to reach into my computer and choke her when she whined about not getting any congratulations from the other two. STFU! Here's to Richard and Stephanie blowing her out of the competition next week.

Stephanie FTW!

Anthony Bourdain
I just read his blog recently from when he sent Dale home and explained to the upset fans why. He says that the chefs go on a challenge-to-challenge judging rather than an over-all-entire-season judging. Otherwise yeah, there's no way Lisa would have made it. But I also agree with the commenters that it's going to be between Steph and Richard anyway, so why not make it "dramatic"?
