Sad to see him go [Spoilers, Next Iron Chef Episode 2]

LOCKED DISCUSSION

I really like the kind spirit and "tough love" Robert Irvine brings to his shows and really hated to see him go for his hummus, but the fact that Chiarello's pasta worked out sealed his fate. I thought for sure he'd make it further in the competition.

As a Chopped fan, it's nice to see some of the judges compete and be humbled, especially Alex who's toughness is embellished a bit I think to add interest and drama to the show. She is obviously a very sensitive and passionate chef with high expectations of herself and full of anxiety which has made her more real. Zakarian will have trouble following the rules of the show and that may very well be his downfall, but at the end of the day is food will always be amazing (as much as we all hate him sometimes lol)

The other chefs who I am not so familiar with are definitely surprising me with their talents while others disappointingly play it safe. This is by far probably the most enthralled I've been with a televised cooking competition since the Chopped: AllStars show! Can't wait for more action....

    Shouldn't this be in the other thread? Or AT LEAST have a spoiler alert in the title?

    I haven't caught the episode yet. Not thrilled to have the elimination given away in an unmarked thread.

      I don't think it's considered a spoiler once it has originally aired on all coasts.

        It doesn't air in Canada until a day later and I've been avoiding the obvious spoiler threads all day. I'm not too pleased to have opened this one by accident.

          Look up 'spoiler.'

            Thanks. I post on other boards where spoilers are considered (for TV, not movies or books) only spoilers until the program has aired.

            Also interesting is that this seems to be the only post every made by the OP.

              I'm sure it was a simple mistake from a first time poster - he/she was probably reading the other thread and hit 'add new post' instead of 'reply.' I was hoping the mods would step in and merge this with the other thread or something.

                i agree that this is probably what happened. it's the bad design of the site and has been discussed on site talk. the big red button on top of the thread, "ADD NEW POST" is much more intuitive and what a new poster would hit to try to add a reply, rather than going to the bottom right corner of the text of the op and clicking on the poorly marked "Reply" tab thingy. it is not the first time poster's fault!

            It most certainly is a spoiler, especially given the widespread use of DVRs and given that the thread title gives no indication that the Next Iron Chef is the topic.

              The fact that they added "spoiler" to the post title isn't really going to help because as you said, Lurker Dan, there isn't any reference in the title to the Next Iron Chef. When I read the title I thought that someone from the culinary world had passed away

                I was wondering who had died. Then I realized it was about TV.

              Hopefully people watch these episodes for more than the suspense of who will get eliminated.

              If you really do want to protect yourself from spoilers, it would be a good idea to stay away from all vaguely worded subject lines for a few days after the episode has erred. People can easily make 'mistakes' like this. You are experienced; the OP is not. In other words - buyer beware.
