i hate matthew - if anyone has seen him on cutthroat kitchen they know he is annoying!

no one i really like yet. a lot of italian food this season. i hope this does not mean giada will try to impress tv land with her pronunciation skillz.

anyone notice last years winner did not even get her own show? i do not even remember the pitch she won on but she is on a show trying to makeover food with one of the deen boys....

After a small Google investigation all I could find is after he won people dug up offensive comments posted on the internet supposedly by him in the past and a show never materialized

Apparently he's actually originally from NH which made me laugh

im about an episode and a half in and i dont remember anyone's name but here goes

Matt doesnt bother me because at first i thought maybe Food Network was telling him to act like that for "drama" purposes and now i think maybe he is just acting like that because he thinks it will get him attention. he kind of annoys me in the sense that "meh im not going to waste any of my energy being annoyed with him" i think he just wants to be on tv because as you said above he was also on cuttthroat kitchen

i cant stand the woman who never smiles and Matt called an Ice Queen.

the first woman to go i didnt like either because i think she was the one that was all like "i know what i like and im ignoring the mentor's suggestins because they are dumb and i am smart" so i was happy to see her go because that is just dumb.

i cant decide if i like Sita or find her annoying i guess i will have to see more.

i like the ex football player but i find his message very confusing and i think it really doesnt need to be.

i like the drag queen so far im just hoping he doesnt turn into a walking stereotype.

the really smiley woman (the one that is Armenian i think?) talks about being a mom too much. "well im a mom soo....im a mom so i blah blah blah" enough already you're not the only mom on the planet
if she would tone that down i would like it.

the Italian woman i cant decide if i like her or dislike her yet.

the Italian guy from NY who is so uncomfortable in front of the camera is my guess as to who goes at the end of the 2nd episode but i havent finished watching yet.

i like the Louisiana guy so far but i feel like he also might turn into a walking caricature if he's not careful.

i cant remember anyone else so they must be boring

i am glad matthew is gone. his privileged little boy syndrome got old fast.

the foot ball dude is cool - but the concept really needs work. i want more african cuisine - that has me and the calmness she has when she is at her best is nice. i like the drag queen guys set up - really nice!

i liked how they were going to send the woman home and Matt had that shiitake eating grin on his face like "hahaha im too good to be sent home" and they were like "oh yeah ok you're done"

i thought he was going to be around for awhile for drama

i also really liked the drag queen's display. so nice! i loved all the details.

i was kind of glad to see her go as i decided she annoyed me. i was on the fence for awhile.

seems like this season i like a lot more of the men then the women.

i like Eddie and Arnold the best.
the Italian guy (Dom?) seems to be a good chef if he would get over his "ok im done with the camera im out of here" he would be better.

the women are all kinda meh to me. the tall Italian lady is probably my favorite out of the women. i think i might like Michelle but she could easily fall into the annoying category.

i cant stand the ice queen lady who keeps saying "spices are her thing" yeah ok lady.

It always seems that the more they talk about spices, the less they actually use.

i was sad to see mama soprano go last week. i liked rue in the first few eps but she got old fast so no biggie she is gone. is dom giada's eye candy this season and is why she is keeping him around? he cannot speak in front of a camera and each time he is up i cringe.

so the butcher chick from last season was on cutthroat kitchen this week. man she should have gotten her own show!

also something that has been bothering me - the team that had to fuse middle eastern flavors & italian flavors together - why make it so hard? southern italy/sicilian food is like that! but honestly being sicilian with an assyrian stepfather i see so many of the same ingredients being used...

so i finally caught up with the last two weeks.
i still really dislike the ice queen lady who claims she is all about spices.

the tandoori chicken thing.....she keeps saying spice is her thing then she claims for the chicken that she didnt have the right spices. well you are in a professional kitchen that is stocked with stuff and spice is your thing so LAME EXCUSE.

i agree about Dom. i think they keep him because he is a good chef even though he totally sucks in front of the camera. also possibly your Giada eye candy theory. also Giada's outfits are bothering me this season. i dont know why. one episode her skirt was so short i was pretty sure if she turned around i would be looking at her butt cheeks and then some of her other outfits i was just like BOOBS! like damn woman!

i still like Eddie and Arnold.

i agree Rue seemed really cool and had a lot of potential and never delivered. i guess they felt the same way

the show is also sponsored by a spice company - they have spices at every promo shot!

i noticed giada had a crop top on at one point...

Giada's wardrobe this season is nuts. She doesn't have the attitude to pull it off so she just looks like she is wrapping a neon sign around whatever body part she has emphasized. Plus, it's a cooking show and she looks kind of ridiculous standing next to Bobby Flay, who is wearing a formal suit. It's like the reverse of male stars in tee shirts next to glammed up actresses on the red carpet.

At least it's amusing to see her talking about "authority" and "professional credibility" while wearing a weird and distracting crop top dress.

She either needs a stylist or needs to fire one.
