  • Tears and recipe theft highlight this Southern style cook off.

    Tonight's espisode was a slight improvement over the near ludicrous Sesame Street yawner from last week.

    Food Network Paula Deen and a New Orleans hot shot chef are guest judges. Here's hoping the engaging and beautiful Gail Simmons will be back next week. The quickfire challenge was sparked by a case of plagarism, but mostly turned bittersweet as Antonia forgot to make a second plate. She would've won, but got eliminated on the technicality. Antonia's tears were a nice emotional moment in what is normally a frivolous exercise. The elimination challenge, the chefs were faced with probably the biggest crowd they had to serve yet. Then enormity of the challenge was helped or hindered by producers bringing back past eliminated chefs to serve as sous chefs. Some suprises do follow as to which chefs succeed, and which fold under pressure.moreless
