Top Chef Masters Ep. #5 - 07/15/09 (spoilers)

I just saw on TV Guide's website that one of the judges for tonight's episode is Jeff Lewis from Bravo's "Flipping Out". Lordy, *please* make him less anal-retentive than he is on his own show!
Chef's competing tonight are: Michael Chiarello, Rick Moonen, Nils Noren and Lachlan Mackinnon Patterson. Of those, the only name that is familiar to me is Chiarello.
Wasn't Nils Noren a judge on TC Season 3 French Culinary Institute episode? I believe he was the guy who said Sara Mair's dish wasn't too Jamaican as he goes to Jamaica frequently because he's in a reggae band. If it is indeed him, that's kind of scary as I'm starting to sound like those Star Trek nerds who remember every damn detail.
VERY surprised that Moonen didn't plate any of his QF...but he seemed to have redeemed himself a lot in the Elimination Challenge.
Very smart of Chiarello to enlist the guests' help in plating his dessert! What a flirt. :-) Laughed at Gael Greene's "lawn cuttings" remark about the basil gelato.
LOVED the presentation on all of the elimination challenge dishes.
