Totally agree. If Michael had put the okra on the plate, Penny would have been toast in the first round.

I was also pretty disgusted when she said beating Michael Symon would look good on her resume. PLEASE! She didn't beat Micael Symon, he messed up when he left off the ingredient. I hope we have seen the last of her. I was glad when Marcus won, but I do like Geffory. He is just a class act.

Did anyone else almost gag when Penny said she thought Marcus and Michael were afraid of her? In her sweetest dreams, maybe. Or when she said "I'm the expert, not Amanda?" She talked about wanting a Food Network empire (her exact words). Given her behavior here and on NFNS, I strongly suspect (and devoutly hope) that we've seen the last of her.

I'm so glad Marcus won. He's a total class act.

Last night was right up there with the school chefs episode for me.

Okay, the order of finish I want to see:

1. Marcus
2. Jeffrey
3. Michael
4. Nobody
5. Penny

I missed that Anne would be judging. I have to say that last night was my favorite round this year. It is just nice to see how much respect they all have for eachother. And yes I caught how choked up Jeffrey got when he had to tell Alex she had been chopped. I think since she has been his sous chef on Iron Chef, they have developed a greater friendship. I was also glad to see Marcus seemed to have more of his A game back last night.

I thought last night's episode was particularly emotional. I actually got tears in my eyes when time was called on the dessert round. I noticed that hard-a$$ Zakarian choked up telling Alex she was chopped (bummed me out, too - she was my favorite), and I loved that when Chris Santos walked out they got a close-up of the photo of the cousin he competed for. I also had no icea Marc Murphy is dyslexic. It's amazing how many of them have been saved in one sense or another by cooking.

Did you notice in the preview that Anne Burrell is judging next week? I wonder if that's going to become a regular thing.

Agreed. I'm not a Michael Symon fan. I like Jeffrey Saad, but not as much as Alex and Marcus.

He's so popular. I can't imagine he won't be on FN or CC regularly at some point. Remember, Tom Pizzica (that other big teddy bear) did get his own show.

Remember, she thought she could beat everybody. Any of those three will make hash of her -- and not get chopped for it.

I was not happy either. Penny was talking about how everyone thought she was mean, but she really wasn't. Where did that come from and she wanted to beat Vic because she went home before he did. I seriously do not like her and I agree. Let's hope she is the first one eliminated in the finals. Seriously she thinks she can beat Michael Symon, Jeffrey, or one of the judges?

Ditto on hoping Penny gets chopped first.

I don't know -- I thought Justin was arrogant and Vic was gracious and gentlemanly. No wonder Vic was my favorite from start to finish last year.

Penny won. What a load of spoiled pig tripe! That had to be for ratings. At least Justin was totally honest with the judge's when they axed him, and Vic did get some good exposure.
I hope Penny goes down in flames inround one of the Finals.

Chicken feet...tripe...did we stumble into the Halloween episode?

I wasn't surprised to see Keegan Gerhardt go first, since pastry chefs historically don't do well here (two pastry chefs last season, both cut in the first round), but I felt bad even so. Seeing him choke up talking about Make A Wish put a lump in my throat.

I am SO looking forward to this week! It'll be great to see Vic again. He was my favorite on NFNS and I'm still hoping he gets a show at some point.

Agreed on all counts. I'm not a huge fan of Michael Symon. He just doesn't seem to have the elegance and class of some of the others so I was hoping he would not win, but oh well.

Okay, I'm guessing everyone has watched their recordings by now.

I knew Jose Garces would the the first one chopped when he didn't shell the crawfish before he pureed the soup. Yuck -- like a mouthful of sand.

Personally, I rooted for Cat Cora. It was great to see her again. I miss her on Iron Chef.

I wanted badly to smack Michael Symon and Marc Forgione's heads together! On their level, I'd like to hope they have more class than to swig out of the bottle and then cook with it. That's just gross disrespect to the people who are going to eat the food. They're just lucky Chris Santos is competing and not judging this year.

They just wrapped up last season, but I think the episodes are still available on the network website. It's excellent! Bobby Flay was her opponent this year (so you KNOW I enjoyed it!)

It's a lot of fun. It just makes you shake your head at what some people think is edible.

I saw the ads for it this week and immediately programmed my VCR so that if something comes up, I won't miss any of it. I can't wait to see the last round with some of the "Chopped Judges" competing against each other. Wondering who will be judging the judges? :)
