I love this show; really, I do. However, every time I watch this show, I notice that there are double standards abundant. On one episode that I watched, a contestant had a bunch of pots and pans on the floor near his station, which is an accident waiting to happen. He got talked to but just like a passing comment. On another episode, "Flower Power", Chef Lola was berated by judge Geoffrey Zakarian because he swept some of the burdock root peelings on the floor. He went off asking her if she thought this was a joke, which in my opinion was uncalled for. As i said, that instance was one of the episodes where a double standard was held.
I love the concept and the format, but they should either get one panel of judges for every show and have them remain impartial or crack down on the judges that they have and force them to follow the rules that the show creators made.
