  1. The promo's might be leading us to believe that Fabio will have to bow out because of his injury.

      I know - but it didn't look TOO bad.. (ie - his finger was still attached!!)

      Unless he loses so much time, he can't finish or something like that...
      Gosh I hope not! I love Fabio!

    2. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let it be Leah!

        Seconded! She just has to go. Ridiculous.

      2. I think the whole thing with Fabio is a head fake. He will come through and knock them dead, or at least do well enough to stick around. I am hoping its Leah. but Hosea has been kind of shaky too.

          Rumor has it they will be serving finger foods.

            1. re: roxlet

              Is it OK to serve Italian finger food with balsamic vinegar?

                hey Phaedrus - u taking the reins for this one? i need a night off...

          1. re: Phaedrus

            He completely blew it during the QF - did he even *use* any eggs?

          2. Why Stefan? Do you know something I don't? That would just be so wrong.

            Love Carla, but Stefan is in a whole other class than the rest. Well... except Fabio
            ....if was Top *Italian* Chef.

            Leah must go.

            1. I have no idea. I'd think Stefan would be a shoe-in, but he was weak in that football city challenge, so even he can screw up. Carla has been coming on strong lately. Fabio has some skill but talks a better game than he cooks. Leah has been poor over the past few weeks, but it seems like she had some good performances early in the season. Hosea usually does a decent job, but I can't remember him wowing anyone with anything.

              I'll just make a prediction based on my hope and say it'll be Leah who leaves.

                I think hosea did well in a few episodes earlier on - the pork dish at the AIDS function was a big hit..
                I personally haven't liked him since he used that canned crab...yuck!!

                As far as Stefan goes, I just have a bad feeling he is going to srew something up and get sent packing.....
                I do think he deserves the win
