Last Chance Kitchen #11 12/18 (Spoilers)

I'll start it. "Cook outside your comfort zone" (i.e. the other guy's home turf) for Louis and Justin. Louis wins again. If Aussie girl's dress had been any shorter, this could not be shown on a family tv channel. Louis, when backlit, has elf ears.

    1. When I saw the sardine flare-up, I thought Justin might have a problem with that. Fish is too delicate to withstand all those flames.

        That fish looked like it was a goner! How could he have served it?

        1. re: C. Hamster

          And have been surprised that it was dry?

        2. re: chefhound

          I thought the same. He said he was going to grill it lightly, but instead he set it on fire.

          And once again, he disagrees with any criticism his food receives.

            It looked like a flaming marshmallow at a cookout!

            I stopped liking him early on...

              Me too . . . a chef should be able to take criticism and learn from it. For that matter, anyone should be able to take criticism and learn from it.

          2. re: chefhound

            Isn't that what happened to his pork, too? And he refused to believe that it was dry?

          3. Glad I wasn't the only one that noticed she could barely sit on her stool. Definitely giving Padma a run for cleavage as well. I just don't get it. Everyone else looked casual and normal.

            1. What did they cook? I can't recall. Guess I was distracted. Maybe she was late getting ready and didn't have time to finish getting dressed.

              Glad Justin was eliminated. I really liked him in the beginning and when he was up against Michael cooking for Padma. Guess it's not hard to seem nice and normal with that guy standing next to you.

                I'm watching the episodes about 3-4 behind. I really liked Justin, but I"ve just gotten into the episodes where he starts coming across like a jerk, so I'm starting to see what people are talking about. Bummer, he had been my initial pick to win.

              2. OK, I was really nervous for Louis in this one. I thought perhaps that Justin had pulled this out from underneath him (even with what seemed to be char-flame cooking his sardine), although I thought Louis's dish looked the best. I'm glad he won.
