Master Chef 7/10 *SPOILER*

I was so sorry to see Lin go

why did he make such an awful dish?

  1. I think he wanted to go home but to leave the show it is likely you contractually have to be eliminated.

    1. I thought it was funny that the vegetarian got killed for undercooked chicken ... after winning the earlier competition on the show. Oh the irony.

      And I think Lin just met hsi match ........ he tried a relatively difficult meringue dish.. and flopped. I do not think there was anything intentional.

        well the vegetarian didn't get eliminated; she was just in the bottom two.

      2. I'm glad that Bri stood up to Krissi the bully. I also don't doubt that Krissi did beat up girls like Bri in high school. But showing that preview spoils the result of the team challenge. Also, the voting must be rigged. They must've told the red team fans to vote first and then the blue team fans.

        Lynn is great at some stuff but he's not a good all around cook. He's floundered at other tasks before. People like Krissi and Natasha can't do anything elegant but they have the basics down so they'll cruise through the elimination challenges.

            Sorry to see Bri go home when I thought perhaps Savannah deserved to go. I was sick of Lynn and all the praise the other contestants would give him.

            I think the Krissi/Bri argument was amusing since they are from the same area.

              Savannah was the one who went home, not Bri.

              1. re: melpy

                did you turn off the tv immediately after gordon said "the one going home is........... bri"? He followed it by "it's not you Bri, go upstairs"

                1. re: DGresh

                  I fell asleep and then read here that Bri was sent home. Then I mentioned it to my fiancé and he agreed with CH so I assumed Bri went home not Savannah.

                2. re: melpy

                  You disliked the praise others gave Lynn? Maybe it was deserved? He seemed like Goldilocks to me--either very good or very bad. His worst, unfortunately, came on an elimination.

                  1. re: chowser

                    It is relatively easy to screw up a meringue and you basically had only enough eggs to screw up once. It was a poor choice of recipes. I kind of think of it like a diver going for a very difficult dive and missing it, where they would have been safe if they had simply done something safer, like a cake.

                    1. re: cwdonald

                      Pavlova was an odd choice. I have no idea how it could have turned out the way it did. And, who, outside of babyfood makers, would consider a banana puree? I'm surprised no one made a cream puff. That seemed like an obvious choice, or maybe that's why no one did?

                    2. re: chowser

                      I guess it could be deserved. Perhaps he was a nice guy and that is why he got props more than some who have appeared not to falter.

                  2. re: Worldwide Diner

                    Who over the age of 10 beats up people they don't like - or even threatens to beat people up? Is all that put on for the cameras or is that woman really that off-track?

                    1. re: chicgail

                      We have been studying culture of poverty at work and that would definitely fall into behavior from that sect of the population.

                      1. re: melpy

                        ...or just people from South Philly.

                      2. re: chicgail

                        She's really sad. She'll never listen and improve; it's never her fault. How proud can she be when her son sees her on TV? A big part of this will be likeability on cookbook sales, etc. This is not Survivor.

                      3. re: Worldwide Diner

                        I agree about the voting, is was so staged!

                        1. re: libgirl2

                          Staged and very bizarre with the jumping

                      4. I think he tried too hard to dazzle and failed miserably.

                        As for Krissie, what. a. beeyotch. I loved loved LOVED that Bri took her on face-to-face in the wine room and pretty much told her to stop being a doosh. The fact that Krissie continues to say "I would knock people out like her in my neighborhood" shows her complete lack of class. I was really hoping she'd go home. At least Gordon, et al, know that NO ONE likes her.

                        Agree with WWDiner - that voting was definitely rigged. They knew who was going to vote how, and probably lined them up accordingly to offer some "drama."

                        1. I'm very sad that I didn't get to see Gordon slap his palm down on some chicken and scream "It's RAW"
