Last Chance Kitchen 12/4 spoilers

Okay, so Sara shows up and guesses that Louis will be the competition but would like to see Janine.
She gets Louis.
They have to make a savory dish with Mascarpone. Ten minutes into the competition, the cooks have to pick a sous chef. Sara picks Janine and her Daisy Dukes, and Louis picks the pretty boy with the surfer hair who's name I don't recall. For the next 10 minutes, the sous chefs cook the dish while the blindfolded chefs "communicate." The last 10 minutes the cooks alone (unblindfolded) cook. Many gratuitous ass shots of the Daisy Dukes later, Louis wins with a red snapper poached in mascarpone.
I don't have any idea how to pronounce this word anymore... it was all so confusing.
Sara apparently put out a tasty dish altho it looked like a pile of poo to me. Tom liked it. She was gracious and said Louis was the only one left with a story to tell so wasn't upset he was going forward in the competition.

  1. Mas-car-pon-e just like it looks. :)

    For some reason the Last Chance Kitchen video isn't showing up on Bravo's site. What's up with that? But Sara's exit interview saying she lost is there....

      I watched it on bravo last night and it stalled out half way. It is on hulu.com.

    2. Yes, many gratuitous ass shots, I agree. As with Padma's boob shots in the full length episode.

        Not gratuitous at all. Those ass shots were integral to the story.

      2. My favorite LCK to date -- I really liked the format and the twist.

        And absolutely no worries on this end about the ass shots! :-)

        1. Tom mispronounced mascarpone at least 5 times on LCK and I think I heard him say it correctly, with an Italian accent, one time. I just don't get it.

          I remember Padma attempting to tell Mike Midgley on TC2 how to pronounce 'chipotle'. I don't think he ever got it correct.

              I've heard it wrong so many times I'm confused (then again, I live in the NYC Metro area, where Italian Americans drop the last syllable from lots of words so that's what I'm used to). I guess I don't see this as the high crime that others do; words change, and pronunciations change, as words cross borders.

            2. I love Louis' smile--I hope he keeps going.

              Oh, and pretty boy's name is Jason.

                I'm glad Louis is doing well. He seems to finally be able to show the skill to back-up his resume.

              2. I *just* remembered to watch. Tom C. called it "mar-scah-pohn" and "mar-scah-poh-nee". I've always thought it was "mah-scar-poh-nay".

                When I saw the large leaves of Swiss chard in Sara's dish, I thought "How is Tom going to eat that?" Sure enough, that was a LOT of food on the fork that he ended up putting in his mouth - a lot of Swiss chard.

                Louis's dish looked amazing! It will be interesting to see how he does as those chefs who enter LCK get better and better.

                As for Sara claiming she wasn't upset? I don't know - the off-handed "pfffttt" she did at the end of her confessional when she said she was fine with Louis moving forward in the competition? I think she was bothered. But she was clearly outclassed.
