At the beginning of the Season I was pulling for 2 people...

Krissi: because I liked the idea of a person who was from a Blue Collar family and at the time didn’t seem to ‘Full of Herself’ (In the first few episodes anyway) winning. But as time went on we found out that she was as full of herself as most of the other competitors including Natasha.

Luca: I liked Luca because he tried last year and was sent home and here he was again and was able to take the whole thing. You have to admit, America loves an underdog story!

Now that you mention it, the judges did say that they were going to take into consideration how they did overall throughout the competition. Maybe that's what gave Luca the edge.

Yeah, me too about Krissi's nice comment. There must have been an ulterior motive, LOL! Just kidding, kind of:)

Luca got off to a slow start, but he improved in huge leaps as the competition progressed. By the later weeks, his dishes were stunning. I think both he and Natasha have bright futures in the culinary world. Yes, I did love Natasha's retort as well. And I almost fell out of my chair when Krissi actually said something NICE about Luca!

I will definitely be buying Luca's cookbook when it comes out.

I noticed that too but it's hard to tell with all the editing that must go on.

They seemed to be favoring Natasha throughout.

I'm really happy Luca won. It was great that they flew his father and brother over from Italy.

Loved Natasha's comeback to Krissi's snarky comment!


Did you know I'm Italian and have never tasted panna cotta? At least not that I can remember?

Luca won. I thought he would not because he was a much better chef than Natasha but because they liked his personality better. It seemed they helped him a lot during the competition, more than others. Gordon once told him to redo a sauce. That was a big edge, getting that kind of help that others did not seem to get. That's my take on the situation.

It's now down to the final two. Who do you want to win and who do you think will win? I think Luka will win and out of the two I do not have a favorite.

Vic, I feel exactly the same. I loved her audition with her kid. But as the competition went on I liked her less and less. By the time she was eliminated I couldn't stand her.

In the beginning I personally liked Krissi, but as the season went on I really didn't like some of the things she was doing.

First in one of the first 'Team Challenges' she was on the losing team and the Team Captain too the immunity pass offered to one member of the team. (Well we all knew this was solely a move for them to stay in the game) and said "The Captain should go down with the ship and what he did was a 'B***h Move'!" but a few weeks later she did the same exact thing. when she was captain of the losing team. So much for her living up to what she preaches!

Secondly I didn't care for what she did in her last team challenge where she left her team mate hanging in the last 10 minutes of the competition. Like or Dislike you don't leave a team mate hanging... In a real world kitchen you get the job done and settle the differences as you go or when there is time (depending on the situation of course).

Yes, she did. Early in the first thing she said something like, we need to get rid of this thing. She lost me on that one.

I disagree. I didn't hear the "thing" comment. But yes, there are hundreds, thousands and more humans that deserve the "thing" title.

Are you saying Jessie called Krissi a thing?

I was hoping Jessie would go further. I liked her more and more.

I would have chose a different final two but I hope it will be Luca too.

I'm still watching so I haven't read your post yet (I will right after, I promise). But I have to say this: Jessie totally lost me. I disliked Krissi as well. But whatever the provocation, you do NOT refer to a fellow human being as a "thing."

Well, we're getting down to it. ANYONE but Krissi! I really think they're just keeping her around for the drama.

If she wins I'm losing faith.

Now that you put it that way it makes sense. I think of a foodie as someone who will eat or try just about everything.

That soup really looked pretty. For a wedding? Who knew? Nice. The dessert looked yummy too.

Jeez, now I'm hungry. :)

I may just be confused, but when the bride whose wedding they cooked for described herself as a "foodie" and then produced a yard-long list of what she won't eat, I think I must have missed something.

No kidding! Remember how she howled when Jordan saved himself? Then she turned around and did the exact same thing and it's perfectly okay. Talk about hypocrisy!

I'm going to LOVE seeing Christine again!

I can hardly wait for Krissi to get what's coming to her! It looks like from the previews that maybe Joe is going to do just that next time. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE! LOL!

I understand competition but to actually laugh while someone's (Bime) dream is ending is despicable. With tears in his eyes no less. Sure he wouldn't have made it all the way, but still.

She's so jealous of Jessie it's ridiculous.


Having Christine come back will be great!

Why does Gordon have to take soooooooooooo long to say whether someone is in or out or whether the food is good or not. I can understand a little drama but it's beginning to get annoying. He's really doing it on Hell's Kitchen this season.

I'm not sure if I think it was fair Gordon told the red team that was cooking the chicken teriyaki to add sugar. They would have lost if he hadn't.


I'm not sure who I'm rooting for yet but Krissi Biasiello is definitely the Biatch this season.

The auditions were kind of unbelievable, really scripted. Yes I know they all are but this seemed more so than usual.

I agree! Beaver tail and not to mention breast milk and roaches? It's sad that really good home cooks might be missing out because of that foolishness.

I'm happy it's over with and we can get on with the show...although the preview shows pig heads. Just what every home cook normally serves up. Anything for ratings I guess.

LADYIRISH317, You'll have to tell us when you make some of her recipes how you like them. This group I thought the guy who also paints (the one wearing his Mom's apron) had a beautiful presented dish. It looked like it was painted on the plate. I'm going to watch him closely. I think he'll be one of the ones at the top in the end.

Beaver tail -- seriously?

I wonder who's doing the screening, because I can't believe some of these people made the top 100. However, there were some seriously talented people. I loved when that Southern belle glared down the judges and flawlessly filleted those fish!

But they're going to have to go some to top last year. I just ordered Christine's cookbook. I actually cried when she won, but she totally deserved it.

Watched the promo for the new season and it looks GREAT! One episode they drop them off in nature and have them find their own food to make a dish. They are taking them out of the kitchen this season so I can't wait. I always like all the contestants and can't wait to meet this group as well.

Masterchef returns Wednesday, May 22 at 8PM on Fox.

I'm keeping an eye on the Bravo TV website for when Top Chef returns, but no word right now.

"...there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for."

"We're children of a fighting race that never yet has known disgrace." (The Soldiers' Song, Irish national anthem)

"Every day above ground is a good day." (Chef Justin Kennedy of New Orleans, on Chopped)
