    Perhaps you should have put spoiler alert.

      Why - this was in all the ads. It does not say who won.

        You're right, it doesn't say who won.

        It says who lost.

      Watched this last night. Andrew and Morimoto really seem to enjoy each other. They were fun to watch together.

        They really did seem to be having a ball. We really enjoyed watching this show.

          Morimoto was on Andrew's Philadelphia episode.

          but the score was as close as they come.

            Thank you for posting.

            I started to watch but then saw the judge (with an accent) and the woman who seems to have gained a lot of weight. Don't like either one of them so I switched channels.

              Didn't you like the judge who thought the portions were too small?

                Donatella had a baby Sept 15.

                  well if she is breast feeding, she should'nt be eating that food. Sorry, i just don't like her

                    I'm no big fan of Donatella's either but your comments are really mean and uninformed. Penn Jillette is a HUGE man and I didn't see you complaining about his girth. And breastfeeding women can and SHOULD eat a wide, wide variety of foods so as to expose the baby to many different cuisines, it helps them not be picky eaters. Other than excessive amounts of caffeine and alcohol, there are no dietary restrictions associated with breastfeeding a child, what a stupid thing to say.

                All I know is that Marcela Valladolid is a hottie.

                I'd watch her boil water.

                  You are supposed to be swooning over the guest judges, the ones that are famous on TV and Vegas shows but know nothing about food. :)

                  They really should have had Teller on! His insightful comments would put Jeffrey in his place. :)

                    I got a kick out of the bald joke from that British judge.

                      Jeffrey who? The judges were Penn, Donatella and Simon Majumdar

                        I realize that. But an argument between Penn's partner (who never talks) and the most opinionated judge of them (Steingarten) all would be more interesting. :)

                        LOL when I saw one of the judges was Penn, my immediate thought was that it should have been Teller.

                      About Simon Majumdar - I would think a judge finding no real fault other than a too large portion, needs a break from judging. How about simply not eating the whole thing?

                        I think he needs a break anyway, I find him just lightly less annoying that Steingarten. But I'm probably just sick of him after his completely anal judging of Next Iron Chef.

                          After watching his piece on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" where he ate shrimp whole (head,tail,shell,legs, and all) I question his personal food preferences. That's like this one guy I knew growing up who would eat peanuts and eat the entire peanut (including the shell...).

                            Have you ever had properly done Salt & Pepper Shrimp?
