    2.0
    Unfortunately the outcome was predictable. From the moment the First Lady was advertised and the WH chef mentioned, the outcome was inevitable. There was NO need to attempt a duplicitous move by insinuating the vegetables were from the White House garden. In my humble Opinion,the integrity of Iron Chef America was lessened by this particular episode. We do not watch ICA for political nudges or points of view or to promote any political agenda. We do not like feeling manipulated or cheated. Iron Chef Batali and Chef Emeril Legassi had NO chance to win that battle and anyone watching knew the outcome at the outset. They made an excellent effort in a futile battle. That, in itself, is unworthy of Iron Chef America. Sympathies were felt for both of these fine chefs who had to have known that they would be the losing team. The subservience of everyone to the WH chef was sickening.Truly not a memeorable episode and definitely not a shining example of what is normally a fantastic, entertaining show.moreless
