Top Chef ... lalalalaa  
Got around to watching Top Chef ... yay.

Sigh, my Jeff. I'd say I'm not surprised, but I'd be lying. I certainly didn't think he'd go this soon, and I certainly thought the editing was pointing towards Fabio. In addition, Fabio's dish and attitude at the judges' table was much worse than Jeff's it seemed. So, I don't know. I'm really surprised that Jeff went now. Sigh. I felt so bad for him because he didn't cook badly, he just did too much ... again. Oh, Jeff.

Ah well, still, I have Carla. I do love her too and maybe this was a turning point for her and we will see her with that momentum. Or maybe this was her shining moment? I don't know. I'm bummed about Jeff, but I knew he wouldn't win. I just wish he'd gone further.

Your cut tag summarizes MY EXACT THOUGHTS AS I MAINLINE TOP CHEF EACH WEEK! I would eat virtually none of what was made (with the maybe exception of the steaks), but I watch it all the time anyway. I was sad to see Jeff go, but I'm glad Fabio's still around because I love when he plays all self-aware of his Italian-ness/charm, like when he was hosting the wedding shower and talking about how the ladies would melt or hosting in Restaurant Wars and basically saying the same thing.

I do like Fabio, but in this instance, and taking into account the whole season, Fabio REALLY should have gone over Jeff. Sigh. Poor Jeff.

I'd say I'm not surprised, but I'd be lying.

I'm not surprised when I saw who the other two up for elimination were -- and I knew Tom would take this opportunity to take out Jeff. I do admit I was slightly hopeful when Fabio was SO disrespectful, but Tom had Jeff in the cross-hairs, and wouldn't be denied. :/

I was psyched Carla won, as well -- I'm hoping she has a late burst of energy. If she leaves before Leah, I'll be REALLY annoyed (she's better TV now that Hosea and Leah aren't making out anymore :/ )

Oh, once I saw they were the three up, I figured Jeff was likely going, but the editing pre that determination I thought bespoke of Fabio's ouster.

Yeah, Tom hates Jeff, and based on his exit interview? The feeling's mutual.

Hee, I've actually been watching this season, and your cut tag=SO TRUE FOR ME, TOO. Which makes me wonder WHY I watch, but...I've been enjoying it!

And, yeah, Jeff was my favorite, too--I knew he wouldn't make it to the end, but I was still hoping he'd pull it out. SIGH. I do enjoy Carla and Jamie, and I don't, like, HATE Fabio, but it's still not the SAME.

I've found that I really enjoy the career-based reality shows, I like seeing people do their thang! I knew he didn't have a shot at winning due to the editing, but I really hoped (and thought!) he'd make it to top 3. Damn you, Collichio.
