  • Food looked good.

    As usual, I'm a hungry, hungry man. Hungy for everything, but most of all, food. I didn't know celebrities could cook, but the food looked good. Cindy Margoulis' Alaskan Dessert thing looked sooo good, I wanted to jump into the screen and stuff my face with that delicious dessert. By the way, I don't live in Alaska. It's too cold. Tony Gonzales' Salmon course was presented nicely, and if it appeared in front of me, I would eat it. Nicely, that is.moreless
  • too showy! (is that a word?)

    ALright first off, I missed the first 5 or so mins but really not a big deal in my books. Secondly I really thought they would focus on more of the actual cooking aspect, like what the celebrites were using, creating and techniques being used. If you have ever watch iron chef america, thats more of what I expected. But I guess when you have Alan Thicke as your host you are not going to get that. He was focusing on the whole game aspect of the show and the "find your missing ingrident" part. Which I really just found boring. It would be nice if the crowd wasn't so loud so we could actually hear what the chefs were saying to the celebs. No I would talk about who won but I don't remember her name. All I remember about the so called celebs is that Alison Sweeny did not win and I was hoping she would. I really think they need to start getting celebs on these shows that we actually know. Although I do have to give it to Dancing with the Stars they seem to pull off a lot that you have heard of. This cooking with celebs, the only ones I know of that are coming up are Patti Labelle (thats a shocker to me actually) and Ashley Parker Angel (a lot of people probably have no idea who he is though... he was in a boy group called O-town). One last thing, there is no denying the Wolfgang Puck is the best chef out of the 3 chef mentors, so my guess is that most of the celebs working with him will win there round and move on.

    Sadly enough I will probably watch tomorrow, eventhough there is so much I can't stand about it. But hey thats reality tv for ya!
