    I totally dropped the ball with the new season thread (sorry, vinny!). Bravo’s advertising for this series has always been poor, which is unfortunate considering it’s the “network”‘s best series by far. Anyways, it looks like two episodes have already aired. I’ve taped them and will report back as soon as I can.

    Really strong and diverse group of contestants this year! Loved the challenge at Larimer Square and looking forward to the food trucks challenge/sudden death Quickfire next episode. What’s the big difference in “Last Chance Kutchen” this season? Competing against alums? So technically an alum can make it into the competition over an actual season 15 chef? Bizarre. Fine with the first two chefs being eliminated. Too bad both were female. Onto the new season!

    That elimination was sad but soooooo expected. It’s like they were gunning for him since last week.
    Update: I knew his recipe looked familiar. My family makes one like that. Only difference is we Italian-ized it after getting it from someone way back I’m guessing in the 60s and added brocoli rabe. It’s actually pretty good.

    The sudden death round was so painful to watch. But the show was really setting her up to be eliminated, having her do a confessional a minute and her having the only phone call.

    Also, I am ready for Fatima to start winning because she’s been so close to the win every single challenge. She and Tanya are my personal favorites.

    I’m glad they’re dialing down on the “Bear Cubs” thing because omg that’s annoying. I hope it stays that way.

    Also Logan Paul is a joke and I’m surprised they let him open his mouth. You could see how visibly Tom and Padma hated him.

    Padma is being a lot more forceful with her judging and I like it. After years of doing this show, she knows a lot about food and I’m glad to see her vocalize her knowledge.

    Sad to see Laura implode like that in the sudden death quickfire. Loved the deconstructing of the Denver omelet challenge, and then making the perfect French omelet (which none of them really did). The concepts for the food trucks were mostly great. I didn’t really see the cohesiveness with the blue team’s sandwiches. This reminded me of “Project Runway” when designers think that “cohesive” solely means using the same colors or silhouettes. Use different bread! The green team had a bunch of bad technical breaks, so that was unfortunate. Rogelio couldn’t get it together when it counted, and his “salad” did look like a damn slaw. No problem with his elimination here. I’m also glad Padma is asserting more of her personality through judging. I didn’t realize she had her own BBC travel cooking show until Fatima mentioned it in the season premiere. She was brutal in the quickfire. “Gnocchi, againnnn Bruce?” Get it, bitch! And Team Bear Den is cute lol. This is way to bro-ey a group of chefs this season, but it’s somehow endearing on those three guys … for now.

    I had Tyler in my top five! Geeeeez. Oh well. Hopefully he’ll make a run in “Last Chance Kitchen,” though I’m not getting how they’re doing that this season. Could an alum theoretically make it into the finale who hasn’t competed in any challenges over a season 15 contestant? That’s a “twist” which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Nice Quickfire challenge with the precocious kid chefs, and some heartwarming stories about the cuisines based on the chefs’ respective heritages. The collective place where the Syrian refugees chefs learn the mechanics of cooking was fascinating as well.

    Ok so I hate Joe Flamm and kinda need him gone. Bruce is kinda growing on me though…just not enough for me to root for him though. Mustache Joe and Chris are easily my two favs.

    I’m gonna miss Tu dearly. Tough elimination. The twist was everything though, and it looks like Last Chance Kitchen will STILL bring back another chef to competition. Kind of defeats the purpose of final eliminations, but past of me likes the idea of cast shakeups. Maybe only second-tier or third-tier finalists to come back on, and never winners or runners-up. Loved the winter camping challenge and all of its difficulties. Carrie was a wilderness rockstar, so yay for her. Bruce got some needed mojo back and scored one for the belabored Bear Den lol. Lively episode!
