  • Bobby Flay is a Big Baby

    9.0
    Morimoto rules in this episode of "Iron Chef," while Bobby Flay shows himself to be a big crybaby loser. Perhaps it's the language barrier or the national character, but Morimoto goes about his business, is entertaining, and creates what looks to be great food.



    Bobby Flay, on the other hand, is pompous and preening, egotistical and overconfident, then childish and pouty. And turns in the same tired variations on Southwest cooking that he always does. No creativity, just blue cornmeal crust this and chile pepper that. Dude, try some new flavors!



    I realize that, like all reality TV, much of this is acted and edited into more than it is. But you get the sense that Morimoto and Flay can only do so much to hide their true characters. And Bobby Flay's comes through extremely loud and extremely strong. This is not a guy I'd want to have a drink with, he's the type of guy I'd cross the street to avoid.moreless
